Assange and WikiLeaks (2nd Update): A Serious Threat to Our Electoral Process

Assange on the trail of personal revenge against Hillary Clinton

One key step Assange manages to skip

More on Julian Assange, hiding in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London while ducking rape charges by Swedish authorities. Here is another look as his weak-ass WikiLeaks threat that is shown here and in two posts that follow. In sum it all is his serious attempt and stated purpose to undermine our entire election process by ruining Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House.

Based on this exchange between Hillary Clinton and Sen. Rand Paul (this from subject: Arms involved in the uprising and ouster of Gaddafi shows how Assange lies, twists the facts, and implies anything he chooses just to get revenge on those he personally dislikes, and in this case Hillary Clinton. The details follow with my notes (in RED for emphasis):

Assange claims Hillary Clinton knew that the US was sending weaponry from Libya to Syria in 2011, despite she claiming under oath to have no knowledge of the situation based on the following exchange with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)

Assange went on to highlight his version of the information which was contained in the hacked and leaked DNC emails wherein he claims that Mrs. Clinton lied under oath during her post-Benghazi attack public testimony in 2013.

Sen. Paul interrogated Clinton during the testimony and explicitly asked whether as the former Secretary of State that she had any knowledge of gun exports leaving Libya this way and that exchange unfolded this way:

Sen. Paul: “It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons. And what I’d like to know is, that annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries? Any countries, Turkey included?”

Hillary Clinton: “Well, Senator you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. And, I will see what information was available.”

Sen. Paul: “You’re saying you don’t know?”

Hillary Clinton: “I do not know. I don’t have any information on that.”

Then Assange went on to to have an interview with Democracy Now highlighted this way:

Assange claim: “Hillary Clinton was untruthful during that public testimony,” stating in part: “Those Hillary Clinton emails connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, create a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates.”

Assange continued: “So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails.”

Assange concluded: “There are more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection that we have released, just about Libya alone.”

It is irrational to think that Assange’s threat to release “an October surprise” is anything except a weak revengeful ploy on his part. He has zero bona fide facts or proof positive to draw any logical or rational conclusion. 

Assange is aiming for the Moon and missing it by a country mile. Specifically I strongly believe that on this issue, Assange is a bully and a thug – cut and dried — pure and simple, no questions asked.

Please continue with this coverage with the two posts that follow this update, and as always, thanks for stopping by.
