Wikileaks spoke at Green Party convention Aug 6, 2016. Jill Stein called him a Hero.

Washington (CNN)Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein hailed Julian Assange as a hero Saturday, saying the WikiLeaks founder's disclosure of Democratic National Committee emails exposed the American electorate to important information.

Stein's comments to CNN were made shortly before she was named the progressive party's official 2016 presidential nominee, with human rights activist Ajamu Baraka tapped as her running mate.
"Any time that we have efforts to bring information to the American people, to the world, is something worth supporting," Baraka said in a separate interview with CNN.
Last month, WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 emails that appeared to show the committee favoring presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over progressive challenger Bernie Sanders -- an admired figure among many Green Party supporters -- during the primary season. The disclosure led to the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the ouster of several top DNC officials.

The suspicion that Russia could have been behind the hacking has raised concerns of a foreign state or actor meddling in the US presidential election. But both Stein and Baraka dismissed those anxieties.
"This is routine," said Stein, who added that there was "no question" Assange is a hero. "This is what state departments do to one another."

4. Well, she did attend

The same dinner in Moscow as Flynn, and was seated at Putin's table. Clearly a beneficiary of Russian support.

6. Not surprised...

Stein is a loathsome, Russia loving, opportunist! I was and continue to be shocked that ANY Bernie primary supporter could have supported her, and here’s why: she shamelessly called out to Bernie at the end of the primary to go Green, she’s shown numerous times that she’s not qualified to hold the job of President...despite her advanced degree, and she chose Baraka as a running mate, who famously shit all over Bernie!! Oh, and did I mention she’s a Putin lover????

11. Stein is a typical asshole of privilege

Who thinks “burn it all down” is a reasonable political philosophy.
