After an email leak that saw nearly 20,000 emails from Democratic National Convention officials go public last week, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange warns that this is just the beginning.

Talking with CNN, Assange claims to have “a lot more material” concerning the US presidential elections, all of which may soon make its way to WikiLeaks. “This is having so much political impact in the United States,” he told CNN last night before refusing to confirm or deny that Russia was behind the leak.

“Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces. But to exclude certain actors is to make it easier to find out who our sources are,” he said.

Russia currently denies any involvement with the leaks, although evidence has emerged that appears to connect the Kremlin with the hack. An FBI investigation is on-going.

Update: That didn’t take long. WikiLeaks released more.
