(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Wikileaks Editor Julian Assange says his secret-sharing website will release a new batch of documents Thursday.

Wednesday, Assange dropped a few hints during a CNN interview about the scope and content of his organization's newest leak.

"They pertain to 50 countries. We're releasing it tomorrow. In total, more than 67% of global trade is encaptured by those negotiations. I can't reveal will any more details, but the United States, of course, and all of the countries in Europe are included," said Assange.

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for two years now.

He's wanted for questioning in Sweden on allegations he sexually assaulted two women in Stockholm.

Assange claims the allegations have been made up by police. No charges have been filed.

Assange's lawyers fear he'll be extradited to the U.S. if he leaves the embassy because of classified U.S. documents Wikileaks released in the past.
