bro, just how clueless are you? assange was never a hacker, all his information is provided to him by whistle blowers, he never acquires it himself, if you thought he was some hacker getting it himself from gov systems then what propaganda piece lead your clueless mind to think that? Stop spreading disinformation.

In 1987, Assange began hacking under the name Mendax.[19][34] He and two others—known as "Trax" and "Prime Suspect"—formed a hacking group they called the International Subversives.[19] During this time, he hacked into the Pentagon and other U.S. Department of Defense facilities, MILNET, the U.S. Navy, NASA, and Australia's Overseas Telecommunications Commission; Citibank, Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Panasonic, and Xerox; and the Australian National University, La Trobe University, and Stanford University's SRI International.[35] He is thought to have been involved in the WANK (Worms Against Nuclear Killers) hack at NASA in 1989, but he does not acknowledge this.[36][37]

In September 1991, Assange was discovered hacking into the Melbourne master terminal of Nortel, a Canadian multinational telecommunications corporation.[19] The Australian Federal Police tapped Assange's phone line (he was using a modem), raided his home at the end of October,[38] and eventually charged him in 1994 with thirty-one counts of hacking and related crimes.[19] In December 1996, he pleaded guilty to twenty-five charges (the other six were dropped), was ordered to pay reparations of A$2,100 and released on a good behaviour bond,[36][39] avoiding a heavier penalty resulting from the perceived absence of malicious or mercenary intent and his disrupted childhood.[39][40][41][42][43]


He's literally supposedly one of the MOST FAMOUS hackers.

And yet.... some bored woman in Texas with a fake Twitter account fooled him into thinking it was Sean Hannity.

LMFAO. Yeah. I'm gonna trust a guy who got catfished and used terrible cyber opsec.

so your going off of character based on actions done pre 1995... your momma never told you "dont shoot the messenger" did she?

character assassination like your attempting there is shill tactics.

wikileaks makes use of information submitted to them willfully, thats it, your " assange is a hacker" morale excuse is ancient history, get with the times.

Personally from someone who walks away from most political threads only read from time to time what the majority says.

I never have seen a president be the talk of the year as much as Trump has been triggered by both of the parties.

It's also the first time I really felt something big was about to be unfolded before the elections even started?

Seeing also someone like Assange fully backing Trump was surprisingly remarkable.

Adding up all the talks way before the presidential charade started to happen , voices were heard from those around the period that movements like occupied starting to take place as other sounds that were more out of this world starting to speak about real change.

Now it's almost a year further and I don't see any war stories like invasions or other wars that mostly dominated the board here and there in the MSN.

Somehow it feels weird what happens at this point, but I will not swept away that something really is going to happen that would benefit us all , because it's a dream that has been as fragile as a mirror by staring to long at it.

Bottom line is that the #USA is the only country in the world where the leadership in power goes after their OWN intelligence gathering and law enforcement services.

At some point, Trump will need the FBI for assistance with some major international investigation, and will likely get a collective "meh" from them when asked for help.
