Former WikiLeaks spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg says he destroyed a cache of unpublished files obtained during his employment with WikiLeaks.
Domscheit-Berg would not confirm the contents of the data, but downplayed the importance of the material.
“Statistically 80 to 90 percent of the material should be rubbish,” he said Tuesday in a statement to CNN.
The documents in question were obtained by WikiLeaks before Domscheit Berg left the organization in 2010.
CNN’s Kaj Larsen interviewed Daniel Domscheit-Berg about his work with WikiLeaks for CNN Presents “WikiWars: The Mission of Julian Assange."
