(NEW YORK) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange posted a fundraising pitch on Wednesday that claims the group “has decided to intervene in the U.S. election campaign” and urges Americans not to vote in November.
“This election day, do not vote for the Republican or Democratic parties. Instead, cast the only vote that matters. Vote with your wallet — vote for WikiLeaks,” the message reads.
WikiLeaks goes on to claim responsibility for the American withdrawal from Iraq, the Arab Spring and hospital reform in the United States.
