In a Friday night video chat interview on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Maher biasedly questioned Assange about the Democratic National Committee leaks that were unveiled right before the Democratic convention. Maher obnoxiously asked Assange “why don’t you hack into Donald Trump’s tax returns?,” noting that WikiLeaks has not released anything hacked from the Trump campaign. 

Julian Assange said WikiLeaks is ‘working on’ hacking Donald Trump’s tax returns, then pointed at Maher for his donations to liberal elites. Maher of course tried switching subjects as he got uncomfortable.

However, in a tweet later Saturday morning, WikiLeaks denied that it’s “working on” hacking Trump’s tax returns. “Claim is a joke from a comedy show. We are ‘working on’ encouraging whistleblowers” WikiLeaks released.
