1. Aiding and abetting treason.

Encouragement. Treason itself, by a loose definition, bc russia isnt our "enemy"....sure. Attempted treason, espionage, sedition(?).

4. Absolutely! That's the word left out of the coverage.

Instead of “collusion,” corporate media need call it what it is: “treason.”

Putin’s trolls listened and did what Trump asked, noted in the Mueller Report:



Within approximately five hours of Trump’s statement, GRU officers targeted for the first time Clinton’s personal office. After candidate Trump’s remarks, Unit 26165 created and sent malicious links targeting 15 email accounts at the domain (redacted) including an email account account belonging to Clinton aide (redacted.) The investigation did not find evidence of earlier attempts to compromise email accounts hosted on this domain.

I wonder what NATO thinks about GRU Unit 26165?

5. "I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job."

I wonder what they say about their boss in Moscow.

“I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job," Trump said, according to The Times. "I faced great pressure because of Russia. That's taken off.”

“I'm not under investigation," he added.

3. K&R, Good point. This guy solicited help from a person who broke into systems Assange is charged

... with HELPING a person break into the system then using said data.

Basically Assange got a non broken encryption key from , broke encryption key then gave back the encryption key to get access to the system to get the records he put on wiki.

The encryption key isn't "news" for the public

Mueller Report Showed Donald Trump Was Fixated on Finding Hillary Clinton's Emails

BY ABIGAIL ABRAMS
TIME, APRIL 19, 2019

Excerpt...

One of the people Flynn contacted to help with the search was Barbara Ledeen, a longtime Republican Senate staffer who had worked for Sen. Chuck Grassley, then-chair of the Judiciary Committee. Ledeen, and had a reputation on the Hill for propagating rightwing spin. She had already launched an effort to find Clinton’s emails, and began working with Flynn and updating him on her progress.

Several months earlier, Ledeen had reached out to Republican operative Peter Smith about the Clinton emails, according to Mueller’s report, telling him that they were classified and had been “purloined by our enemies.” Ledeen suggested to Smith that Clinton’s email server was likely breached long ago and that Chinese, Russian, and Iranian intelligence services could “re-assemble the server’s email content.” She added that an unnamed third person could help obtain the emails.

Ladeen sent Smith a 25-page initiative outlining her proposed search, according to the Mueller report. This document suggested working with intelligence sources who could use contacts at various foreign services “to determine if any of those services had gotten to the server,” the Mueller report said. “Even if a single email was recovered and the providence [sic] of that email was a foreign service, it would be catastrophic to the Clinton campaign,” Ledeen wrote.

Snip...

By September, Ledeen told Smith she had a trove of emails from the “dark web” that she believed were Clinton’s deleted messages, according to the special counsel report. Erik Prince, an informal Trump advisor who founded private security firm Blackwater and is the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, provided the funding for Ledeen to hire a tech advisor to authenticate the emails. Prince told Mueller that the tech advisor found the emails were not authentic.

Snip...

Smith talked to the Wall Street Journal in May 2017 about his search for the Clinton emails. Shortly afterward, he killed himself, leaving a note explaining that there was “no foul play” surrounding his death, adding that he had a bad turn of health and that his life insurance policy was about to expire.

Only problem, he deserves to be behind bars along with these other guys.
No free walks for Assange!

11. Great point, FakeNoose! Assange leaned in with Roger Stone.

What Zippy knows could fill a book. Who else:

Personally, I fear if the USG prosecution of Assange is successful, it will open the door for tyrants to dismantle the First Amendment.
