1/ Interesting timeline of Assange events.

Ecuador grants citizenship and then a few days later, on December 19 2017, they name him councillor in their Russian Embassy.

UK rejects status and Assange escape to Russia “fails”.
2/ Immediately following, 12/21/17, a criminal complaint against Assange is filed under seal in Federal Court. This is the beginning of criminal process that recently led to Assange arrest and attempted extradition.

3/ Then Assange tweets his famous “chessboard” tweet on 1/12/18.

Seems Assange becomes aware that he will escape the attempt to defeat him.

4/ What does the tweet mean?

At the time it was speculated Assange had left the embassy. We now know that was not literally true but could it have been his “escape” was now negotiated and inevitable?
5/ Early March Mueller clears Trump on collusion according to Dowd.

6/ Then on 3/6/2018 Assange indictments filed under seal.
Everything so far has happened while Pompeo is CIA Director. Then one week after Assange sealed indictment, on 3/13/2018 Rex is fired and Pompeo nominated to be Secretary of State.

Then in April it is announced that after rejecting an invitation since January 2017, Trump has finally accepted. He said he wouldn’t accept unless it was certain he would receive a “warm welcome”. Seems he meant something others didn’t understand.

As I’ve pointed out, it’s obvious in many ways the table was set awaiting a new AG. In this clip from June 2018 just before his trip, Trump compare how he fixed State with Pompeo but has remained hands off with DOJ.

DOJ needed a Pompeo. Now they have it.

Im happy to watch them sleepwalk to their doom but I can’t understand how Democrats don’t see what is happening.

All the red lights should be flashing!


Someone just sent me this tweet. I think it’s important to fit into the timeline. I’ll also say that @jlangdale points out that it is likely significant that no dead man’s switch has been triggered since Assange was arrested.
