Assange Predicts Trump Will Lose, Accuses Clinton Campaign of Trying to Hack Wikileaks?!
Remember when Clinton accused Assange for collaborating with the Russians after he hacked John Podesta’s emails? Well, now WikiLeaks accuses Clinton for attacking their servers. On Wednesday, RT reported via telephone that Assange claimed the daily email release ritual has “whipped up a crazed hornet’s nest atmosphere in the Hillary Clinton campaign” leading them to attack WikiLeaks.
“They attacked our servers and attempted hacking attacks and there is an amazing ongoing campaign where state documents were put in the UN and British courts to accuse me of being both a Russian spy and a pedophile,” he added.
Assange sees Ecuador’s decision to shut down his internet until the campaign ends as a “strategic position” so that its “policy of non-intervention can’t be misinterpreted by actors in the US and even domestically in Ecuador.”
He advises Ecuador to face the dilemma of having the US interfere with their elections next year if they appear to interfere with the US elections next month. Assange also stated that even though he doesn’t support Ecuador’s decision, he did understand it. He also said that WikiLeaks will not be affected by the decision as they do not publish from Ecuador.
Assange denied that WikiLeaks is interfering with the US election, claiming, “this is not the interference of electoral process, this is the definition of electoral process – for media organizations and, in fact, everyone to publish the truth and their opinion about what is occurring. It cannot be a free and informed election unless people are free to inform.”
Still, it will be regarded as interference if Hillary were to lose as the tables would then be turned, and instead of Trump slamming the “rigged” elections, it will be Hillary who will demand a pound of flesh, perhaps literally.
Assange also attacked US TV networks, many of whom he accused of being “controlled by Clinton supporters.” And Podesta emails confirm his claims.
