The direct messages from Assange also include an attack with anti-Semitic undertones against an Associated Press journalist.

In August 2016, AP reporter Raphael Satter tweeted a story he helped write about the harm caused when WikiLeaks publishes private information about individuals. “He’s always ben a rat,” Assange posted in the Twitter group in response. “But he’s jewish and engaged with the ((()))) issue.”


Seems aware of the ECHO if true lol

Read the article. Read as if a flaming faggot wrote it. Scrolled to the author information and saw a soy boy with the same black rimmed glasses Julian was poking fun of.

Not surprised.

Assange is a smart guy so of course he noticed (((coincidences))). You'd have to be half retarded not to at this point.

Surprised there hasn't been an update on this.

Assange's internet access and all contact with outside world has been shut off by Ecuadorian gov't....and ironically by the guy he supported to win the elections last year, Lenin Moreno.

Hope he's fine and ready to come back with revenge...haven't had a bomb Wikileaks drop in a while.

The bad guys support both sides of any conflict so they can never lose. It's usually just an illusion of choice. If Moreno truly opposed the powers that be, do you really think he would have won the election in the first place?

I was wondering if he was dead yesterday. Probably is if he has been cut off from the outside world.

You have to assume there is a contingency if he is cut off from the internet for x # of days or whatever in which he drops all everything wikileaks has that hasn't been verified/indexed or whatever they usually do before a drop.

True, but with his slow and unusual fade away in the last several months, one can assume that the Deep State invested considerable effort in eliminating him, and counteracting any contingency plan.

I hope it's not the case but I wouldn't be surprised. If so, this and the Seth Rich incident shows that small players can be significantly effective. Yes, it says don't fuck with us or we'll take you out.....but they didn't go all that quietly.

It's a fucking outrage he's stuck in that embassy even after the rape charges were dropped in Sweden. I'm disgusted with the U.K. and the U.S. on this. He's the prime example of how "Free speech isn't free."

The UK probably never had free speech. With Tommy in jail they are well on their way to a tyrannical government. All ideologies end in totalitarianism as the saying goes....

If Tommy is in jail for speech, Julian never stood a chance and never will.

Now THAT is interesting.

So much can be gleamed from this. I hope Gowdy and Nunes see this. Tom Fitton might be able to do a FOIA request for the documents on this.

Off the top of my head I can see the following:

1. Either Peter Strzok and his little gang were desperate at some point for dirt on Trump and wanted to see what he had.

2. Maybe they thought he had Hilary's emails. Plenty of us thought he had them. Maybe he does, maybe he does not.

3. If he had copies of Hilary's emails, they likely wanted to know his source for them (think Russians), take the emails from Julian in exchange for immunity. Hide the emails from the public.

4. If Comey nixed the deal in 2017, that means they were trying to make a deal with him in 2016 somehow. By 2017, the election is over Trump won, nobody cares anymore. I would like to know WHEN they tried.

5. It's also possible that they wanted him to stop dumping the Clinton and Podesta emails by offering him immunity to stop back during the election.

6. It's possible they could have been offering him a deal to verify that Seth Rich was his source for the DNC emails. Immunity could have been granted for that. That would also signal that they actually investigated Seth's death or are still investigating it (unlikely). Also a darker motive could be to grant immunity to cover up the killing of Seth. Remember Peter and gang likely knew about Seth and the DNC emails before everyone else. Is it possible Peter or other FBI agents killed Seth in that Medstar hospital? Samseau posted about an FBI vehicle with guns in the same area last year.

7. Other possible ideas could have been related to the leaked video in Manning's case or other DoD leaks, etc. Seems unlikely because Comey nixing the deal meant it was likely something more serious than this.

I even wonder now if Peter had anything to do with Judge Scalia's murder. Podesta might have ties to Peter. So many things need to be looked into, but nobody is going to do this at this time it seems.

There has to be emails and other communications about Assange. We need copies of it to be made available to the public or at least congress. I want to know if Hilary or her people hit up Comey and McCabe for a favor to shut up Assange. I think Obama may have also done so, but that is not illegal for him to do so, but it would be interesting never the less to show that the WH likely was doing everything it could to assist Hillary.

EDIT: Hang on a second. How did they communicate with Julian? Did they speak unsecured via the embassy? Did they use Pamela Anderson? Remember she is a liberal PETA member and very likely a Democrat. I believe she was a donor at one point.

^how long does he sit in a UK prison before Sessions' extradition request is finalized? Could be years if he isn't killed inside. THEN, when he gets to the US, he will be in maximum security. Allegedly he is looking at 43 years in a US prison. We may never hear from him again unless Trump pardons him.

[Emphasis mine]

Will there be any - enough? - outrage from the right to press to their case for a pardon to Trump?

Or will they be entirely over-ruled by the military toadies like Senator's McCain and Graham?

Well lets see:

1. Trump once called him a leaker/criminal. Said he needed to be stopped or something to that effect. (Doesn't exactly mean much in the grand scheme of things)

2. Neocons HATE Julian with a passion. He exposed Bush W so much so that they would try and skewer Trump for a pardon.

3. Obama people hate him possibly even more, making him a 100% complete enemy of the Deep State all together.

4. Julian's only supporters are a modest collection of progressive liberals, some Deplorables, some left-of-center Moderates, Green Party types, and Libertarian/Tea Party ish types. His enemies as far as voters go are Never Trumper Republicans and Super Loyal Democrats still angry about 2016 that used to love him in the early/mid 2000s.

If they wind up nabbing Julian and it seems eminent now, Trump's best bet would be to ask Sessions to have the UK send him ASAP. Let him get processed and charged then he can pick one of three ways to handle it:

1. Pardon him after he is charged and deport him.
2. Pardon him after an expensive and circus like charge
3. Pardon him after his is put in a Supermax prison cell
A) Before the 2020 election
B) After the 2020 election
C) Before he leaves office in 2024 at the very end per custom.

It is not in the USA's best interests to jail international journalists till death.

Be honest with yourselves. He did not commit treason. He published classified information stolen by US employees wanting to whistleblow outside the legal procedure for whistleblowing. The leakers need to be punished more severely than the publisher. Edward Snowden technically deserves the death penalty or life in a Supermax prison, not Julian.

We look like monsters if we throw him in the same place as Zacarias Moussaoui for life. That's very anti-free speech. If we want to be able to speak out against illegal immigration and destroy political correctness, you cannot jail journalists. It's utterly retarded, uncivilized, despotic, and barbaric. Obama jailed the most American journalists in history because he is a tyrannical socialist. Why people were surprised he did that, I will never understand. Democrats are not for free speech and now took what Obama started as the means to attack and punish people for mere words and ruin their careers. Trump has not jailed a single journalist so far (IIRC). Not a good time to become a raving hypocrite.

If Trump lets him rot away in a Supermax after he already rotted in that embassy, I guarantee you he will lose some unspecified amount of voters that thought he was different than the other presidents. He already gave several others a second chance that were decent people, and it no doubt yanked some black voters and others to his side. No reason to stop being a rockstar just to be a stubborn hardass. That said, if Julian does get out, he is not going to show much appreciation or pledge to stop being a reporter. It would be a 100% mercy pardon to signify Trump's superiority as a ethical human being. Do not give far left people like Julian a martyr's blessing.

I would frame the pardon as not gaoling journalists.

Putin is notorious for imprisoning journalists, so framing it this way will make it harder for conspiracy theorists at CNN to paint this as a Russian agent helping another Russian agent.

Alternatively, if there is meat behind the Seth Rich story, Trump could give Julian full immunity in exchange for testifying.

A smart move to create distance would be to leak his own tax returns to wikileaks, and maybe get in a twitter spat.
