Late on Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Julian Assange might be able to provide proof that there’s no truth to the Russia collusion narrative – even as Facebook’s admission that it sold at least $100,000 worth of advertising to a Russian troll farm bent on bolstering support for Pre..

via ‘The Butcher Of Libya’: Assange Exposes Clinton War Crimes, Asks Sweden to Set Him Free — Stillness in the Storm
One day after Hillary Clinton blamed Wikileaks (and James Comey) for her election loss, an angry Julian Assange responded to the former Secretary of State, telling her if she wants to blame someone for losing the 2016 presidential election, she should blame herself. In a tweet on Wednesday morning, Assange said “you can’t blame WikiLeaks when what we leaked was your words and positions. Blame yourself.”
Clinton claimed to take “absolute personal responsibility” for her loss, however with a few footnotes adding that she “was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off,” at a Women for Women International event. She also acknowledged that it was her name on the ballot. “I was the candidate,” she said. “I was the person who was on the ballot and I am very aware of, you know, the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had.” Clinton also blamed FBI Director James Comey, who announced 11 days before the election that his bureau was looking at new emails linked to Clinton.
On Wednesday, Comey testified before Congress and dismissed WikiLeaks as an illegitimate news source, calling the website “intelligence porn.”
“It crosses a line when it moves from being about trying to educate a public, and instead just becomes about intelligence porn, frankly, just pushing out information,” Comey said at a Senate hearing. “There’s nothing that even smells journalist about some of this content.”
Assange hit back at Hillary’s accusations, describing it as a lie and called Hillary the “butcher of Libya.”…

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has told Ron Paul that he believes the U.S. government are at war with alternative media.
In an interview with Ron Paul Liberty Report, Assange accused the CIA of attempting to quash the free flow of information by labelling independent media outlets as ‘non-state’ intelligence agencies.
In fact, although the comparison isn’t without justification, Assange surmises the Central Intelligence Agency employs those similarities as a premise for attacking the imperative American free press and free speech — dangerous territory that could supplant journalistic immunity for protecting sources and publishing sensitive information. Assange told the Liberty Report,
“The CIA has been deeply humiliated as a result of our ongoing Vault 7 publications, so this is a preemptive move by the CIA to try and discredit our publications and create a new category for Wikileaks and other national security reporters to strip them of First Amendment protections by defining the organization as something that fits into existing interpretations.
“So, you can surveil and engage in certain actions on hostile intelligence services. … You don’t need search warrants and so on, authorized by a judge, if what you’re intercepting or surveilling is connected to an organization that is an intelligence service that is influencing someone.”
Ordinarily, the CIA or FBI or any agency of the government would be forced to follow legal procedures for spying on journalists, including requests to courts or search warrants and other procedures, which would only be required if the target were technically considered an agent of or friend to an enemy State…
