The Clinton campaign has been anxious about a potentially devastating “October surprise” in the form of leaks of her private e-mails by WikiLeaks or Russia. Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, told Sean Hannity last month that his organization has significant documentation that could be damaging to the Clinton campaign, and that WikiLeaks may release some “teasers” from the collection soon.
“We’re bracing ourselves,” one Democratic official said. “It’s hard to protect against something when you don’t know what it might be.”
Well guess what???
It isn’t happening.
NBC’s Jesse Rodriguez reported was canceled due to “security concerns”, and sent the following tweet:
Due to security concerns at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange's balcony announcement on Tues has been cancelled, per @wikileaks

Wikileaks has not said when it will now make its “announcement.”
So basically, whatever Wikileaks was going to release must not be very damning, or they just lied about having the information in the first place. I think this tweet sums it up quite nicely:
