After The New York Times published an opinion piece suggesting Wikileaks and Roger Stone colluded with Russia, Wikileaks provided a powerful response.
The New York Times published an opinion piece questioning whether President Donald J. Trump’s campaign could have possibly not known that receiving information about Wikileaks constituted Russian collusion, an idea that holds no grounds in reality. The United States government has never suggested that Wikileaks works with Russia, and Robert Mueller’s special counsel has never spoken with Wikileaks representatives or Julian Assange.
After the Times posted the article to Twitter, Wikileaks replied that “Not even the US government alleges such nonsense,” and pointed out that “it has long been shown that the New York Times and its owners knowingly conspired with intelligence agencies,” and provided a link to a 1977 article written by Carl Bernstein, the journalist who exposed President Richard Nixon’s Watergate Scandal.
Alsop is one of more than 400 American journalists who in the past twenty‑five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency, according to documents on file at CIA headquarters. Some of these journalists’ relationships with the Agency were tacit; some were explicit. There was cooperation, accommodation and overlap. Journalists provided a full range of clandestine services—from simple intelligence gathering to serving as go‑betweens with spies in Communist countries. Reporters shared their notebooks with the CIA.
Wikileaks’ reminder comes at a time when questions are being raised about how CNN knew to stake out Stone’s home on the morning of the unannounced, pre-dawn raid. The suspicious circumstances, which many believe to be the product of a leak, led to the late Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum calling for the resignation of the FBI director.
In an exclusive with Big League Politics earlier this month, Stone previously alleged that the FBI attempted to “set [him] up” with a Russian using a fake name in an attempt to entrap him.
From the exclusive:
“Congressman Eric Swalwell told MSNBC that I lied to the House Intelligence Committee and that I ‘amended’ my testimony three times. This is categorically false,” Stone said in a statement provided to Big League Politics.
The Intelligence Committee voted to release the transcript of Stone’s behind-closed-doors interview to Robert Mueller’s office, but the transcript has still not been provided to the public, and the clock is ticking for the outgoing Republican majority to publicize the document.
“Nunes has not released the transcript. I am not allowed to inspect it. They are not allowed to take notes. It’s four and a half hours long and is maintained in a secure room in the US House of Representatives,” Stone told Big League Politics in an interview.
“Mueller’s request for a copy is the result of a one year campaign of distortion and disinformation by Adam Schiff and the Schiff-heads. Portions of my testimony have been linked to by Natasha Bertrand of the Atlantic which is a direct violation of law,” Stone said.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
