Captive Julian Assange has made good on his promise of last year, when he lost asylum status in April 2019, to publish all WikiLeaks files. The stunning online data dump began just a few days ago and its impact has escaped most people’s notice, what with all the international hoopla over a bad strain of flu.
The file index of the WikiLeaks 2020 data dump reads like a conspiracy synthesist’s dream-come-true. Here is a small sampling of the top-level folder names that link to multiple single documents, arranged by categories:
Expect many more analysts to weigh in as the contents of this vast trove of hush-hush intelligence is illuminated publicly.
Assange’s legal troubles began in 2010. Swedish prosecutors brought sex offense charges against him, based on accusations from female associates who admitted, years later, that the Swedish police had forced them to lie about having non-consensual relations with their editor-in-chief.
To this day, Assange has denied these accusations and many conspiracy synthesists agree that Sweden used false charges to punish Assange for publishing classified information for the world to see.
The 48-year-old Australian journalist has been under house arrest or in prison since June 19, 2012. Assange entered the Ecuadorian embassy in London, England, to seek diplomatic asylum from the Swedish witch-hunt. to Assange avoided extradition to Sweden over these fabricated accounts until
On August 16, 2012, the government of Ecuador granted asylum to Assange. The Swedish government later dropped the charges against Assange since further investigation into his alleged wrongdoings were thwarted by his refuge within the foreign embassy.
At the time, high-placed political criminals who had secrets they did not want exposed in a Wikileak file dump reviled Assange:
“Vice President Joe Biden and Mitch McConnell labeled Assange a ‘high-tech terrorist.’ Karl Rove described him as an ‘enemy combatant’ who should be ‘hunted down.'”
While Patriots and Truthers defended the self-exiled Assange as a journalist whose arrest spells the end of free speech, the mainstream media continued to promote the impression that the WikiLeaks co-founder is a monstrous traitor in the same condemned category as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
On March 7, 2017, WikiLeaks dumped a new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Code-named “Vault 7,” the collection numbered 8,761 documents from an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia.
New World Order globalists howled with rage after learning that Assange had published some of their deepest, darkest secrets:
“Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized ‘zero day’ exploits, malware remote control systems and associated documentation. This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA.”
Two years later, on April 11, 2019, Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno accused Assange of repeatedly violating the terms of his asylum. The Ecuadorian embassy withdrew Assange’s asylum without warning and forced him to be removed from the building the same day.
Having been tipped off by the now-cooperative Ecuadorians, London police were waiting outside the Ecuadorian embassy. As soon as Assange stepped foot on British soil, he was arrested and sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for violating bail conditions.
Assange vowed to dump all WikiLeaks files if the British authorities continued their legal persecution, which they did. After his arrest, Swedish prosecutors reopened the dropped 2017 sex offense case against Assange.
Assange has been held on remand in London’s maximum-security Belmarsh prison (“Britain’s Guantanamo Bay”) in London since September 2019.
Assange appeared at a week-long extradition hearing in London that lasted until February 28, 2020, and is slated to resume on May 18. Its outcome will determine if the United Kingdom will extradite Assange to the United States, which unsealed criminal counts against the WikiLeaks publisher in 2019 after his arrest.
On February 25, Mark Summers, Assange’s lawyer, told the extradition hearing in London that, after realizing that unredacted U.S. diplomatic cables given to WikiLeaks were about to be posted on the internet, Assange attempted to contact Hillary Clinton and the White House with the following warning:
“Unless we do something, people’s lives are put at risk.”
According to Summers, the U.S. State Department advised Assange to call back “in a couple of hours.”
The U.S. Department of Justice claims that, in 2010, Assange illegally published the names of classified sources and conspired with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to crack a password to access classified information. Manning was arrested in May 2010 and convicted on espionage charges by court-martial in 2013 for participating in the 2010 WikiLeaks leaks.
If the British court rules to extradite Assange to the U.S., the journalist faces 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act of 1917 and one count of violating the additional espionage offense of breaking a computer crime law. If convicted stateside, Assange could go to prison for 175 years.
