Let’s talk about Julian Assange.

[THREAD]
1/ Whatever legitimate journalism Assange’s Wikileaks may've done previously, by 2016, he was an asset of Russian intelligence. The coordinated released of stolen Podesta emails an hour after the Access Hollywood tape dropped was not journalism; it was an act of cyber warfare.
2/ In general, the indiscriminate dumping of sensitive documents stolen by hackers is also not journalism. This is something the Bolsheviks did with Romanov papers after the Revolution, BTW. It was done to sow chaos.
3/ Assange was intimately connected with Edward Snowden's defection to Russia. He helped a traitorous spy escape, and he helped implement a propaganda campaign to present that spy as a First Amendment hero.
4/ Assange sought asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy because he was wanted in Sweden for sexual assault. A guiltless man might demand his day in court, so that he would be exonerated. Assange fled the country & hid out in an embassy basement. You know, like an innocent man would.
5/ Remember some years ago, when we on the left falsely believed Assange was the cat’s meow, and Obama did not? Yeah, Obama had intel we didn’t have. He knew what Assange really was: an opportunistic fame whore & chaos agent with unseemly ties to the FSB.
6/ Recent visitors to Assange include: Nigel Farage, Roger Stone, and Sean Hannity.

Hannity has a fishy relationship with Assange:

Also, Assange reached out to Hannity, or tried to, with anti-Dem info:

8/ Hannity is one of three clients of Michael Cohen, who reportedly met for over 40 hours w/the Mueller team, and was also supposedly in front of the Grand Jury this past week.
9/ Wikileaks DM’d with Donald Trump, Jr. during the campaign.

10/ Wikileaks is “Organization 1” in the Mueller indictment against the 12 Russian hackers. So we know Assange is on his radar.

11/ And now Assange, we find out, is under sealed indictment.

Assange, who coordinated w/Junior & Stone and possibly Hannity during the campaign.

In short: no matter how many anarchists sing his praises, or how many ex-Baywatch babes he boinks, Assange is what Mike Pompeo said he was: head of a non-state hostile intelligence service aligned with Putin's Russia.

He belongs in US prison.

That's where he's going.
