CIA Faces Backlash After Tweeting Vague Threat at WikiLeaks Sources

Published

on

In a bizarre tweet on Saturday evening, the CIA sent a vague threat to WikiLeaks and their potential sources.

Just after 8:30 p.m., the official account of the CIA sent out a tweet warning that โ€œWikiLeaks may think they are protecting those who provide them with classified information & other secrets, but they should not be certain of that.โ€

The tweet received hundreds of responses from people questioning if they were threatening the publisher — and others invoking slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, who many believe was the source of the leaked emails published by WikiLeaks in 2016.

Rich was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by the controversial publisher. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.

WikiLeaks made headlines in 2016 when they offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murderer of the slain DNC staffer. The websiteโ€™s founder Julian Assange also mentioned Rich during an appearance on Dutch television.

โ€œWhistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the backโ€ฆ murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,โ€ Assange said during an interview with Dutch TV last year. When asked by the host if he would suggest that Rich was involved, he stated that โ€œwe have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risksโ€ฆ thatโ€™s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.โ€

The murder remains unsolved and no suspects have ever been named.

While members of the mainstream media often pretend to be champions of a free press there has been radio silence from them on the threat against WikiLeaks sources. It is hard to imagine that there would not be outrage from all corners of the press if a tweet like this had been directed at the Washington Post or New York Times — who obviously also rely on leaks for their reporting.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic

Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.

Published

on

Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.

Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.

Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.

In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.

Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.

American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.

America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
