Would not Assange have to turn up in court to be cross-examined?
For that reason, CNN may think they are bluffing.

As a company, WikiLeaks can file as an entity. Assange can be deposed, but not compelled to appear.

Anyway, this sounds like the opening bout of the SHTF.

Unless within 48 hours they air a one hour expose of the plot.



Don't know what that means.

A CNN commentator called Julian Assange a "pedophile" .. thats why Wikileaks want CNN to air an hour long expose of the old Clinton 'plot'

Here is the video with Phil Mudd, the CNN commentator:


It goes back to this:
Hillary Clinton Under Fire For Framing Assange As ‘Pedo Russian Spy’

Its so idiotic and laughable, that yes, CNN deserves to be sued, or air at least 1 hour long apology!

Would counsel caution here.

It may be a means of deflecting and then burying concern about Assange even being alive.

Many good but naive people, associate Wikileaks with Julian Assange. Therefore; if Wikileaks is doing 'x' then perception reads this as Julian Assange is doing 'x.' so therefore he must be alive.

Note also that no organizations ever sue Wikileaks, yet they accuse them of spying, selling secrets and so on.







Assange is alive.
He did a live interview with Hannity this week.

Doesn't prove he's alive or free. Appearance could have been faked, pre-recorded, or done under duress. If he is still in the embassy why doesn't he come to the window?

Rumor has it that wikileaks has been compromised by intelligence sources for some time and is only keeping up appearances.

Assange may want to sort out that rape case before attempting legal proceeding against someone/thing else.

The Liberal Media is Keen on Labeling anyone they Consider Not one of their Own Idealogy , a Pedophile . The American Public Needs to Start Boycotting these Media Outlets that Resort to Defamation without Proof or Cause . They All need to be Put Out of Business by Drying Up their Ability to make Money off their FAKE NEWS , and Forcing them Into Bankruptcy .

Are you high? That has been the right's ENTIRE song and dance up until that jackass proved that Pizzagate was sensationalized nonsense.

I normally don't like civil litigation.

But I really loved to see CNN put out of business, and a wake up call issued to mainstream media.

Being held accountable for a change.

Well it seems the apology came forth

CNN apologizes to Assange after commentator calls him ‘pedophile'


CNN issued an apology after one of its paid commentators called WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange "a pedophile" during a live broadcast Wednesday morning.

Phil Mudd, a counterterrorism analyst for the network, slipped out the incorrect accusation while discussing Assange's controversial anti-secrecy site on the network's "New Day" show.

"I think there's an effort to protect WikiLeaks (and) a pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London — this guy is not credible," Mudd said, referring to Assange.


Can't wait for the 1 hour long story following this

You wanna know what annoys me about this story? Back During the pizzagate drama, CNN went all out how we shouldnt be accusing people of such things without evidence. (Even though there is a vastness of Circumstantial Evidences within the wikileaks which should have atleast sparked an investigation by the FBI .)

But now here they are...saying that the Wikileaks founder... is a what now? Without evidence and not even circumstantial ones, (whereas pizzagate had plenty.) But seriously what ...what the hell?


What was that about fake news and how it started? Did CNN just do what it accused others of doing? (no shock there.)

Yes Julian should sue , but the question is, with all the judges and affiliates in the left's pocket's; can it even make it to court?

I doubt it, but I will be watching to see if I am wrong. S&F

Sure..


Now all Assange has to do is appear in US Court to file suit, depositions etc...


I am unsure how a fugitive from justice manages to sue anyone?

Major drama unfolding about Wikileaks threatening to sue CNN for defamation !!

All about some CNN comments about Assange being a pdeophile !!

This should get real good real soon.

See some of the Twitter exchanges in the story ........


WikiLeaks Just Announced Plan to Sue CNN for Defamation

Moments ago, Wikileaks tweeted that as a result of a segment airing on CNN, the whistleblowing organization announced it has “issued instructions to sue CNN for defamation.”

Wikileaks was referring to a segment in which CNN had the ex-Deputy-Director of the CIA “falsely calling Assange a ‘pedophile.’




Ah yes. The alleged rapist and his Russian propaganda machine will attempt to extract money from the low quality news network. The alleged rapist complains about being called a pedo, but hides from his home country's police over evidence that he rapes women. This is the classic mindframe of the pervert. He doesn't even understand that what he is doing is wrong and the even scarier thing is that there's a bunch of people such as yourself who are so lost that they turn a blind eye to it all. Maybe you're a pervert yourself. It's questionable in consideration of your pizzagate obsession.

Nice people you support. Personally, I've never even thought of lying to a woman about the use of birth control before intercourse. He raped 2 women and the evidence has repeatedly been upheld in several courts. Stop being a rapist supporter and start being a lot more objective. No intelligent person is listening to you spam the same old crap.

Where's the good and decent people on ats? There doesn't seem to be any. A bunch of people here need to be spanked. Your parents didn't give you good values. Any decent person would distance themselves from all of this, but this is Stormfront Lite where the earth is flat and everyone lives in fear of radiation from their wifi routers soooooo on that note

*Backs out of the room slowly with cringe face on...*

Anyone want to bet that Donald Trump does NOT have a plan in mind for bankrupting CNN after he's President? Naturally, he won't be the person carrying it out, but his administration will.

Donald Trump not the type of guy who will hope and pray that Wiki-leaks, or anyone else, will bring about the demise of CNN. He'll ensure that it gets done, and done quickly, since CNN is a bigger threat to his agenda than the (now) impotent Democratic party is.
