WikiLeaks reminds Trump of time he said 'I love WikiLeaks'.


WikiLeaks is reminding President Trump of the time he said "I love WikiLeaks", amid reports that his administration is planning to bring charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Who knows if the government is really going after Assange or not.

We know that Trump thinks that Snowden is a traitor worthy of the death penalty so the idea that theyre going after Wikileaks is not that difficult to believe.

I've got mixed opinions on Assange ever since he said that 9/11 was a "false" conspiracy.

Well of course he loves Wikileaks...that was until he found out they were actually convincing people to get sensitive Info and release it against the law. they were co ercing.

I guess Wiki dont want to argue that though.

Is it surprising to anyone that trump is going back on his words?

The guy's a salesman, and during the campaign wikileaks did and incredible job exposing Clinton. At the moment wikileaks was inadvertently helping trump, and trump knew that.

Now that trump is in the position that wikileaks is ready to expose, trump changes his opinion of them.

Shocking...

If i remember correctly, didn't trump say that if he would be elected, we would wipe assange's criminal record clean due to how much he helped him during the election?

No. Saying one thing and then completely doing the opposite is flip flopping. Which is what trump is doing in this situation

It should never be a crime to expose crimes by government ie public servants and unelected bureaucrats.

Crime?

Whistle-blowing should be a requirement of the job.

1) why does everyone have to pigeon holed into a trump lover or trump hater?

2) Assange is a Non US citizen who released information while outside the USA. How can he be guilty of anything? Its the US citizens that gave him the information that broke the law.

It's the justice dept that wants to do this. We do not have an extradition agreement with Ecuador so it probably won't happen.
I doubt trump wants this.

That's not what they did though. They just released embarrassing personal stuff no crimes or anything even coming close.
See this is the big problem. People actually thought there were crimes in those emails or something bad and that was a direct result of the Russian intervention. People thought with all that was getting released there must be something wrong in there. But there wasn't .
Can you name one crime that was exposed ?

Because the law is quite clear.



Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both. (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

Misprison of treason. Key word whoever.



(a) Whoever, with intent to interfere with, impair, or influence the loyalty, morale, or discipline of the military or naval forces of the United States:


Again WHOEVER.



(2) distributes or attempts to distribute any written or printed matter which advises, counsels, or urges insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty by any member of the military or naval forces of the United States—

www.law.cornell.edu...

Our military has been at war for the better part of a decade.




onveys false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies; or Whoever, when the United States is at war, willfully causes or attempts to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or willfully obstructs the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States, to the injury of the service or the United States, or attempts to do so—


www.law.cornell.edu...

These laws have existed for quite a while.

They rarely are enforced.

They can be applied to Assange.

Since WHOEVER is pretty much carte blanche.

On the LEFT Wikileaks interfered with the election. Good,bad or indifferent.

On the Right Wikileaks Interfered with the GW administration, Good,bad or indifferent.

The fate of Assange ?

Safe as long as he never leaves the embassy.

Until that time. Nothing is ever going to happen.

Not really clear as it says "Whoever, owing allegiance".

Assange owes no allegance to the USA.

How can one commit treason when one is not a citizen of that country nor is in that country?

Read it again.

Assange had knowledge of Mannings treason.

Concealed it. Did not disclose it to US authorities, and used it against us.

"Anyone owing allegiance to the US". Assange has no such allegiance.

They should remind him!


Honestly I think the Deep State has taken over and he is just another Globalist puppet pushing the military/industrial complex!


He can't serve 2 masters and that is exactly what I see him doing. Perhaps getting rid of his daughter and Zionist husband would be a start?

Well, Trump's GOP led gov't is clearly trying all they can to arrest Assange. Is it any wonder Trump says he loves Wikileaks when it provides him a narrative against his opponents but will actively pursue their downfall when it doesn't.

And you need to reread it.

It says in the first sentance "Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States".


Assange owes no allegance to the USA.

Swoden yes. Manning yes. Assange as a australian no.

Trump and Sessions were clearly talking about leaks from the government, not Wikileaks. Pompeo, on the other hand, does seem to have a vendetta. It's the CIA after all. Wikileaks released their cyber tactics. The flip flopping angle is fake news.

Look at the spelling on your article. "U.S. officials familiar with the matter said prosecutors have found a way to move forward, after struggling to determine whether the First Amended protected Assange from prosecution."

Assange shouldn't let himself be degraded to engaging in tit for tat with Trump.

Just stick to the information, dude.
