Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said that anti-Trump conspiracy theorist Louise Mensch is “clinically ill” and that everything she says is “obvious garbage.”
Assange made the statements in a Twitter Direct Message conversation Thursday, which Assange gave permission to the account @decryptable to publish.
Mensch is a former Conservative member of British Parliament and former top executive at Rupert Murdoch’s Heat Street website.
Mensch has vaulted to Internet notoriety by leading a witch hunt against people she claims are Russian agents or in league with Vladimir Putin, including pro-Trump conservatives.
The Daily Caller recently reported: “Just about all of Mensch’s theories have centered around Russian President Vladimir Putin and alleged operations by his government to undermine the American political system. Her most recent unfounded idea that caused an uproar on the internet was that the late Andrew Breitbart was murdered by Putin. “I absolutely believe that Andrew Breitbart was murdered by Putin, just as the founder of RT was murdered by Putin,” Mensch tweeted to her nearly 150,000 followers Friday while offering no evidence. The founder of the eponymous news site died suddenly at age 43 from heart failure in March 2012.”
Despite the criticism, Mensch seems determined to keep her supposed anti-Putin crusade going. A request for comment sent to Mensch’s blog Patribotics was not immediately returned.
My entire focus is defeating Putin's war on America and the free world. People have different politics. I will do politics later. 1/2
