Some neoliberals are exploiting #MeToo and falsely portraying Assange as a "rapist" to justify the US's political imprisonment

But court docs show the woman said she "did not want to put any charges on JA but the police were keen on getting a grip on him"
The woman associated with the supposed "rape" allegation against Julian Assange said she had been “railroaded by police and others around her."

She said she "did not want to accuse JA for anything," adding "it was the police who made up the charges"

Those falsely portraying @WikiLeaks publisher and political prisoner Assange as a "rapist" to justify the US throwing him in a dungeon are ignoring what the woman herself said!

They are silencing her — and fueling an authoritarian attack on journalism.
The woman associated with the supposed "rape" accusation against Assange said she didn't want to accuse him and police made it up.

Then Stockholm's chief prosecutor, Eva Finne, dismissed the 'rape' investigation altogether, saying, "There is no suspicion of any crime whatsoever"
Despite these facts, here is the deputy European media director of Human Rights Watch (formerly a US-biased Cold War anti-Soviet group called Helsinki Watch) helping to justify the demonization of political prisoner Julian Assange with #MeToo
