Speaking on 7.30, Julian Assange maintained his belief that the US embassy has groomed Labor Party figures, such as Senator Mark Arbib, to provide information.
"That unfortunately reality is as a result of some people in the ALP, like Mark Arbib, being groomed for many years by the US embassy and other inducements from Washington," he said.
He says although he has proof about such dealings, releasing them would endanger the sources of the information.
"That is why we want the Australian government and Australian government personnel who know that statements to the contrary are false to step forward to the Australian media and reveal that this sort of liaison has been occurring," he said.
"It is not acceptable for that sort of liaison to occur."
Mr Assange says he is confident the website will continue with or without him.
He is currently on bail in England while he continues to fight possible extradition to Sweden on sexual assault charges.
