Hilary Clinton Wants Julian Assange Punished for Real Journalism
Hillary Clinton wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange brought to justice.
After Assange was arrested in London on Thursday, April 12, far-left liberals and neoconservatives came out of hiding to celebrate the journalist’s apprehension. Of the individuals most pleased about this event, was Hillary Clinton.
In the lead-up to the 2016 presidential elections, Wikileaks published a series of emails from the DNC and Clinton campaign manager John Podesta that revealed foul play during the Democratic primaries. These emails specifically unmasked how the Democratic Party, under the leadership of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, plotted to derail Bernie Sanders’ campaign and gift Clinton the nomination.
Members of the intelligence apparatus claim that Wikileaks was a front for Russian hacker, but could never present any evidence to back these claims up.
ZeroHedge reported that the former Secretary of State was asked about Assange’s arrest at New York’s Beacon Theatre on Thursday April 11, 2019.
Clinton said, “I think it is clear from the indictment that came out it’s not about punishing journalism, it is about assisting the hacking of a military computer to steal information from the United States government, and look, I’ll wait and see what happens with the charges and how it proceeds, but he skipped bail in the UK.”
She continued, “The bottom line is he has to answer for what he has done, at least as it’s been charged.”
BLP reported on globalists across the political spectrum having an Assange bashing fest on Thursday when he was unceremoniously arrested.
Assange’s arrest was met with considerable pushback in the America First space.
Commentators like Paul Joseph Watson came to Assange’s defense for exposing the military-industrial complex and raising awareness about the never-ending wars that the neoconservative establishment in D.C. has launched over the past 15 years.
Assange exposed war crimes committed at the behest of neo-con warmongers.
It was the war crimes that harmed America's reputation, not Wikileaks.
This is perfectly in line with the non-interventionist, America first platform Trump ran on.
Trump must pardon Julian Assange.
