Some of WikiLeaks’ Bank of America data destroyed

Reuters reports:

Some internal Bank of America files obtained by WikiLeaks have been destroyed, according to a former close collaborator of Julian Assange, the whistleblowing website’s founder.

In an email to Reuters, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who last year was fired by Assange as WikiLeaks’ co-spokesman, confirmed that he had destroyed “roundabout” 3,000 submissions WikiLeaks received related to Bank of America.

But Domscheit-Berg also said that he did not destroy Bank of America material obtained by WikiLeaks before last year. He said that Assange first claimed to have obtained leaks from inside Bank of America in October 2009. Domscheit-Berg said he never had control over such files and did not destroy them.
