Townhall -- WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said over and over again that the Russian government did not provide the group with the DNC and John Podesta’s emails. Now, in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity set to air Tuesday at 10 pm, he once again insisted that was not their source.
“Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta's emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?” Hannity asked Assange.
“Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” the WikiLeaks’ founder replied.
“Our source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no. But if we look at our most recent statement from the US government, which is on the 29th of December, OK, we had five different branches of government, Treasury, DHS, FBI, White House presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out 29 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all of those statements? The word WikiLeaks. It’s very strange.”
Assange went on to argue that the reason for President Obama’s “dramatic response” of issuing sanctions against Russia is “obvious.”
“They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president.”
Blog Author's Comments -- I find it very telling that the mainstream media as well as all of the leftist/progressive politicians, and especially the leftist pollsters literally scream about how the election was influenced by Russian hackers/crackers. But are totally silent about what we the people learned from WikiLeaks, about the collusion between the media and the Clinton campaign, about what Clinton's view of the common people really is, and how the DNC rigged their primaries.
Those subjects are taboo, never to be spoken out loud, and best not even to be thought about. We were not supposed to know what they had been doing. To the left, voters are to be kept in the dark, but I have heard Obama and many of his people tell us that they are the most transparent Party ever. The Democrats need to believe in the Russia stole the election, or at least try their best to sell it. It's all they've got. This whole scam is about making it appear that Trump didn't win fairly. The Democrats and mainstream media have repeatedly manipulated information and straight out lied to the American people.
They have made plain that they are unhappy that their queen Hillary's coronation was 'stolen.' So they are insisting on demonizing Trump, the Russians and anyone else they can throw under the bus to avoid admitting defeat or legitimizing the peaceful transfer of power, simply because it is not transferring to someone they like. So, they give us more fake news, and they flood the airwaves with non-existent agendas, and paint everything with a conspiracy brush, and push lie after lie until no one believes anything any of the media tells us. And not only is this coming from the leftists, Democrats, mainstream media, but also from some of the regular RINO's of the Republican Party, pathetic.
