For me... it makes no difference... the point is the DNC rigged the election and that is all that matters.

Me either.. but it is rather sickening seeing the state run media do the Clinton campaign damage control and stone the "evil" messenger ... Supposedly more to come.. I will thoroughly enjoy watching the slime ooze out of the set

I completely agree with you, it's amazing how bias the mainstream media is

1. There is never PROOF of any cyber hack. This stuff is done by professionals. But there is some evidence that third party cyber security firms have gathered that indicate a likelihood that it's connected to the Russians

2. That said, DNC did rig the election, though, clearly.

And there is no reason why both can't be true; one does not preclude the other.

What does Assange know, being holed up in a little room in an Ecuadorean embassy? No, there are too many third party private sector computer experts, who have no political axe to grind, who say that there is strong evidence that the DNC hack was done by the Russian government. The FBI confirmed they suspect the Russians did it and are investigating it.

I think it is odd the FBI would prematurely say something without finishing their investigation... It's not characteristic of them... Especially when information that can impact the relationship of nations... That information should at least be somewhat classified but they just blurt it out...

For what it's worth...

1. Assange himself has stated that he told Edward Snowden to seek asylum in Russia and gain the protection of the FSB; he and his legal team also helped walk Snowden through the process.

2. Assange has also suggested that FSB become his personal protection in the embassy he is currently holed up in.

3. Assange has his own show on RT News, which is a Kremlin-supported outfit.


In his tenuous circumstances, Assange needs allies - same as Snowden does. I personally think it plausible that both men have thrown in their lot with the Russians (Snowden quite obviously). I would not consider wikileaks some impartial NGO. And there is a real irony about the notion of an outfit claiming to be for the freedom of press and exposing things against oppression, etc. getting in bed with Putin and his secret police.


None of this is that new. Read below about how Assange helped basically Snowden hand himself over to the Russians. This is from 2013.
