Whistle-Blower Julian Assange Indicted on 17 Federal Charges Under Espionage Act

Assange’s leaks of Democratic Party corruption helped put Donald Trump into the White House in 2016.

A Virginia federal grand jury has indicted Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder who has published state and corporate secrets for over a decade.

He received 17 felony charges from the grand jury under the Espionage Act and an additional felony charge that had been unsealed following his April arrest in London. The feds reject that his claim that he is a journalist.

“The superseding indictment alleges that Assange was complicit with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army, in unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defense,” the department said in a press release.

The department claims that Assange “engaged in real-time discussions regarding Manning’s transmission of classified records to Assange” and “actively encouraged” Chelsea Manning to hack into the military’s computer network. The resulting leaks helped WikiLeaks expose war crimes being hidden from the public by the deep state in 2010.

The feds are likely trying to make an example of the WikiLeaks founder because his revelations regarding Democratic Party corruption were influential in putting Donald Trump into the White House.

WikiLeaks and other 1st Amendment advocates are crying foul at a move they believe strikes at the heart of press freedom in the digital age.

Chelsea Manning, the individual who hacked the military systems and sent the intel to Assange, had her sentence commuted by former President Obama but was ultimately sent back to jail earlier in the month indefinitely for refusing to testify.

Before Trump was elected, Obama had revived the espionage act as the means of cracking down against dissent and silencing his opposition. He used the Espionage Act more than all his predecessors combined, and his successor is continuing that legacy.

Trump once claimed to be a fan of WikiLeaks when their disclosures assisted him on the campaign trail leading up to the 2016 presidential election:

Now that his administration is cracking down on Assange, Trump claims he knows nothing about WikiLeaks:

Assange faces up to 180 years in prison if he is convicted on all counts.

FBI Lists Journalist James O’Keefe Erroneously as ‘Convicted Felon’ to Prevent Him From Buying a Weapon

This is the problem with a federal background checking registry.

Published

Project Veritas founder and conservative investigative reporter James O’Keefe has reported that he was recently denied a firearm because the FBI listed him as a “convicted felon” on their background registry.

O’Keefe posted a video on social media of himself at a New York gun store attempting to buy a shotgun before the federal background check under the NICS system rejected his request.

“I hope it’s not retaliating against me because of our journalism,” O’Keefe told the shopkeeper, who recognized O’Keefe from his work exposing liberal corruption and shook his hand.

The video can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on how efforts to strengthen federal background checks are a liberal trojan horse to enact gun control and keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens:

Another controversial provision of the omnibus spending bill is funding for a proposal known as “Fix-NICS.” Instead of attempting to pass it on its own, which has failed on numerous occasions, it appears that Republicans in congress have plugged the bill, which has support from a number of high-profile Democrats, including Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) into the massive spending bill.

SEC. 601. of the omnibus spending bill is titled the “FIX NICS ACT,” and is the same bill that anti-gun Republicans and Democrats have failed to pass in the past.

Fix-NICS provides massive funding to states to encourage them to input more people into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to bar them from firearm ownership.

The NICS system has already been massively abused, disproportionately targeting veterans. Over 257,000 veterans have already been barred from firearm ownership without any due process, and this funding only gives them the ammo they need to throw even more veterans into the NICS database.

The deep state would certainly be incentivized to punish O’Keefe for his political advocacy. O’Keefe has been a leader in exposing their plot against President Donald Trump, including how the Russia-gate witch hunt was a total farce from the beginning.

O’Keefe caught CNN supervising producer John Bonifield on camera in 2017 admitting that there was no evidence of Trump ever engaging in Russian collusion or doing anything improper with regards to Russia.

“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield said on the hidden camera video. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”

“Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords and for a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN (Jeff Zucker) said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with that, let’s get back to Russia,” he continued.

“I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime,” Bonifield added. “I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”

The case of O’Keefe’s rejection shows why federal gun control must always be opposed. No matter how well-intentioned the measures may be, they will always be used by liberal bureaucrats to deprive their enemies of rights.
