Truthtelling and secret-breaking WikiLeaks vowed to take action if the Trump administration had not arrested Hillary Clinton for crimes of high treason. In fact, WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange announced:
“If Trump doesn’t take Clinton down, we will.”
WikiLeaks has a history of “data dumping” sensitive information, releasing hundreds (if not thousands) of document pages at a time. National governments hate him because of this forced transparency.
Given the mounting evidence that Mrs. Clinton broke many serious laws while she was Secretary of State under President Obama, people on both sides of the congressional aisle are asking why no legal charges have been made?
All we have are hints from QAnon about “over 40,000 sealed indictments filed in U.S. Federal District Criminal Courts since October 30, 2017” for Clinton and other former political officials.
But rather than look into what Clinton was up to in her high office, the Democrat-driven GOP Russian collusion election-influencing investigation is still a red-herring issue that just won’t die.
Many Americans would like to see an end to Clinton collusion and interference with the political process, through due legal process. They are joined by a host of international citizens who oppose the socialistic Clinton machine.
Australian-born Assange has been very vocal about calling out the Clinton crew for accountability, even though he has been confined to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since June 19, 2012. Two months after that, on August 16, Ecuador granted asylum to Assange.
Leaving the embassy means probable arrest by British police for extradition to the United States.
On March 28, 2018, Ecuador blamed Assange for interfering with other states and took away his phone and internet access, effectively severing all communication with the world outside his embassy residence. As further punishment, only members of his legal team could visit Assange.
Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno claimed that the WikiLeak’s leader’s social media posts had “put at risk the good relations [Ecuador] maintains with the United Kingdom, with the other states of the European Union, and with other nations.”
In September 2018, Assange, through WikiLeaks editors, published his international assurance that justice would be served even if U.S. President Trump didn’t press forward:
“Hillary Clinton’s crimes will not go unpunished. If she is not formally charged for mishandling sensitive material we will have no choice but to release proof that she is guilty of high treason against the United States for selling patented military secrets to the Saudi Arabian government.
“We also have proof that she is guilty of crimes against Russia, Uzbekistan, Lithuania, Caledonia, and Brazil. The United States would be doing her a favor by putting her in prison and saving her from the severe punishments several of these nations would impose.”
A few days before this declaration, the Senate Intelligence Committee had called Assange to testify before them. ” WikiLeaks’ legal team says they are considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard,” wrote Assange.
Then, on October 12, 2018, Ecuador restored some of Assange’s online access. He must continue to refrain from communicating any controversial opinions or face expulsion. A WikiLeaks statement announced:
“Ecuador has told WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange that it will remove the isolation regime imposed on him following meetings between two senior UN officials and Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno on Friday [October 12].”
WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson followed up with this message:
“It is positive that through UN intervention Ecuador has partly ended the isolation of Mr Assange although it is of grave concern that his freedom to express his opinions is still limited.”
The United Nations agreed that Assange has been a “victim of arbitrary detention” and declared that the “unacceptable situation must end.”
In a slam dunk win for Assange, the UN also ruled:
“The UK government must abide by the UN’s ruling and guarantee that he can leave the Ecuadorian embassy without the threat of extradition to the United States.”
Meanwhile, October 21 has come and gone. As of October 22, 2018 – the date of this writing – there has been no data dump incriminating Hillary Clinton of high crimes and treason.
Something similar happened two years ago. WikiLeaks promised the world an “October surprise” tell-all bombshell publication targeting then-presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton – and failed to deliver.
Is Assange distracted by personal business or will the other shoe drop before the midterms? Will we wake up one morning very soon only to discover that any reasonable doubt about the Clinton matter has been removed, once and for all?
There is, of course, a third possibility: Assange might make a deal to cancel the threatened anti-Hillary political bombshell in exchange for his liberty.
