Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is making preparations for the demise of Hillary Clinton, saying that the next release of emails, which is imminent, will result in her indictment. We can only imagine where it will go from there and who else will become entangled in the dragnet that follows.
He also made it clear that there is nothing to indicate Russian involvement in any manner in hacking. From his perspective the Clinton campaign is attempting to divert attention away from their own actions in any manner they can. While it is a Russian network denying carrying the denial, it is one that Assange is making from the sovereign confines of the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Assange is confident this next tranche of emails will contain enough evidence to see Hillary Clinton arrested. Those are some strong statements given the willingness we have seen on the part of Justice Department leadership to look the other way when the defendant is named Clinton.
The report quotes Assange as saying, “The DNC servers were ripe for hacking, that they are riddled with holes and that documents hacked over a number of years are out there in the public domain in multiple copies. He says that when the Clinton campaign talks about having proof that the emails were hacked by Russians, he says, ‘I don’t know what they’re talking about but they’re not talking about my leak.’”
The reporter notes Assange’s view that “It’s not important where the emails come from, what’s important is what’s in them. And what we have now is the Clinton campaign using information about past hacks to divert attention away from what’s actually in those emails.”
She notes that the diversionary tactic itself raises questions, with Clinton faced with a political scandal she turns to blame the Russians and the Chinese. Assange points out that if she does that type of thing from within the government it could be problematic.
Assange stated that due to the actions of the DNC to undermine the Sanders campaign the Clinton victory lacks any legitimacy.
