An upcoming data dump by WikiLeaks will be damaging enough that an executive at a major American bank will resign, the organization’s founder Julian Assange told the U.K.’s Times in a recent interview.

Speculation has swirled that WikiLeaks may be targeting Bank of America in its next leak, which Assange said in a Forbes interview will target at least one major bank. In a 2009 Computer World interview, Assange said that he had a 5 GB hard drive from a Bank of America executive. The bank recently stopped processing WikiLeaks payments.
In an interview with the Times, Assange said: “We don’t want the bank to suffer unless it’s called for. But if its management is operating in a responsive way there will be resignations.”
