Google Trends’ official Twitter account released an analysis of recent Clinton-related searches early Monday showing terms such as “WikiLeaks” and “Assange” to be among the most prominent.
WikiLeaks, which is set to hold a press conference Tuesday morning for its 10-year anniversary, stated last June that its upcoming leaks on Hillary Clinton may lead to an “indictment.”
“We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton,” Assange told Britain’s ITV. “We’ve accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton. We could proceed to an indictment.”
Early last month during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Assange stated that the long-awaited leaks were imminent – leading many to believe that the information on Clinton would be announced during Tuesday’s press conference.
Assange originally planned to deliver the message from the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London but cancelled last minute over reported “security concerns.”
Due to security concerns at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange’s balcony announcement on Tues has been cancelled, per @wikileaks

The WikiLeaks founder will instead join the press conference, being held at the Volksbühne theater in Berlin, via video stream.
“On the opening day of WikiLeaks’ ten year anniversary period this press conference will announce new initiatives and provide updates on publishing and legal events,” a Facebook post states. “Looking over the decade long body of work staff and experts will speak of lessons learnt and future plans.”
