Julian Assange (Wikileaks) Was Campaigning on the Hannity Show Tonight

Assange is becoming more prominent in the Trump campaign. Tonight he received a heroes welcome on the Sean Hannity show. Meanwhile it should be assumed that Putin's security agents are preparing more documents for Assange to dump at a strategic time. With Assange becoming more blatantly partisan, it is unclear how many people will believe that phony documents are real. But, I think we should assume that some phony documents are on the way.

1. "Law and order" candidate, Trump embraces the rapist Assange.

2. Assange is pretending to be incarcerated,

but he can leave the embassy anytime he wishes. He is desperate. He says his health is not good and that conditions in the embassy are very harsh (e.g. no air conditioning), but if he comes out there is a danger that he will have to face criminal charges (e.g., the rape claims). He says that he is innocent (and maybe he is) but he does not seem to want to risk a trial.

He needs the Russians who may provide him with sanctuary. The Russians need him to dump documents to manipulate the Trump vs. Clinton election.

9. Worse than that, he has no class.

 

It's amazing how many other losers the Trumpnado has pulled into its epicenter.

4. Was it established that he released "phony" docs?

Has anyone said they're phony?



Not defending him but I thought it was accepted as common knowledge that these were real

5. They're real, and the NSA is leaking like a sieve.

8. Some were real and some were altered.

What is unclear is whether Assange or the Russians are doing the altering. I'm not sure that in the end it really matters. Both are pushing Trump's candidacy for their own reasons. Putin likes Trump because he seems to be able to control him. Assange wants our government to forgive him for his participation in the theft and distribution of classified materials. He thinks (and maybe Putin has assured him) that Trump will let Assange off the hook.

11. They were not the originals - they have been determined at the very least

To have been copied and pasted from original docs.

Any journalist knows that if they are not original documents, then they should not be considered root good source of information.
