NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange likes making "banks squirm," he said in an interview on CBS show "60 Minutes".

Assange responded to a question about reports that WikiLeaks had a five gigabyte drive with documents from Bank of America ( BAC). Assange did not confirm or deny the rumors, adding in the interview that it was "interesting" Bank of America was preparing for the release of the reports.

"I think it's great. We have all these banks squirming, thinking maybe it's them," Assange said.

Assange had told Forbes last year that WikiLeaks planned a "megaleak" that focused on a major U.S. bank in early 2011.
