Default Julian Assange Charged by Federal Prosecutors

Quote:
WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange has been charged under seal, prosecutors inadvertently revealed in a recently unsealed court filing ó a development that could significantly advance the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and have major implications for those who publish government secrets.

Liberals liked him before he helped expose Hillary and the DNC, right?

all this as talks of extradition to the us is going on.

pence aka lodestar has been colluding with the crooked dems since the summer to pressure ecquador to turn jules over to 'murrica.

now it's a race between stone and corsi to see who can offer the best snitching deal to the feds. romey rome corsi got a nice jump this week. stone better get to yappin.

It's a three man race. Don't forget Randy Credico.

its weird how police/government is always asking people to report any suspicious behavior in their community


possible terrorist activity


possible illegals


possible gangs


possible school shooters in the making


possible thieves/rapists/murderers etc...







but don't do it if its an elected official running for president

Strange how you don’t hear any hysteria about threats to press freedom.

lodestar going out of his way to get jules to 'murrica so he can inevitably start snitching.

and now the emperor is polling his underlings to find out just how loyal a hungry dog is.

This is why I think the DOJ has been so reticent to go after him or charge him with anything in the past. The press has wide latitude in their journalistic endeavors in relation to politics as long as they maintain some semblance of standard journalistic practices. The fact that they are charging him now indicates that they must have solid evidence of links to and collusion with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election. My guess is that Stone, Corsi and Credico are talking and sharing e-mails. But if those guys are talking, Assange is the least of our concerns... more shoes will drop.

What do you think about Assange’s activities in general?

Did you defend him before he hurt the DNC?

Do you condemn him now?

I'm not a fan of Assange and have never been one.

I'm assuming that you agree that he should be charged and tried if there is evidence that he worked with Russian agents or individuals connected to the Trump campaign with the express intent of interfering in the 2016 election?

It would depend on what kind of 'interference' he assisted with.

If he aided them in the actual hacking of computers or voting machines? Of course. I can sympathize with why he'd do it, but in the interest of fairness and consistency I would want that prosecuted.

If Russia did that on their own, and then he provided a medium post facto for them to publish damning and accurate information exposing corruption of the DNC and Hillary? No. I think he's got a right, arguably an obligation to do that.

Again, I tend to focus more at the broad philosophical implications of policy decisions rather than the day to day gossip of washington, so I actually don't know a ton about Assange or anything that's going on with Russian prosecutions etc. But to your answer your question, it just entirely depends on what they prove he did.

Does press freedom apply to wikileaks or does it not? If the answer is yes, then you have to apply the same standards to wikileaks that you would to CNN, ABC, NBC or Fox.

If either the Trump campaign or the Clinton campaign were emailing back and forth with CNN, Fox or even foreign outlets like BBC, which they of course were, is that something you think should be investigated by the government?

As far as Assange working with Russian government officials, do you not think that CNN works with government officials. I mean, government officials leak shit to CNN, ABC, Fox and the rest of them all the time. Should these journalists be charged with something for that?

Do you not think American media companies have contact with officials of other governments? CNN has a pretty cozy relationship with the Turkish government for example. Do you think officials from these foreign government ever leak anything to CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox, etc.? If Turkish officials or Israeli officials leak information to CNN, Should those CNN journalists be charged with anything?

How about NBC leaking the Access Hollywood tape? Do you think that leak was possibly motivated by a desire to affect the election outcome? Itís a 12 year old tape. Is it just a coincidence that NBC had this tape though the entire primary and general election and just happened to drop just a few weeks before the election? Should that be investigated? Is that maybe an in-kind contribution?

How about CNN leaking debate questions to the Clinton campaign? Should somebody be charged with something?
