1. I just finished reading the chapter on #WikiLeaks (59 pages) contained in the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's Report on "Russian Active Measures Campaigns and Interference in the 2016 US Election"…
2. the description of #WikiLeaks' publishing activities by this #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's Report appears a true #EdgarHoover's disinformation campaign to make a legitimate media org completely radioactive
3. Clearly, to describe #WikiLeaks and its publishing activities the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's Report completely rely on #US intelligence community+ #MikePompeo's characterisation of #WikiLeaks. There is not even any pretense of an independent approach
4. there are also unsubstantiated claims like:
- "[WikiLeaks'] disclosures have jeopardized the safety of individual Americans and foreign allies" (p.200)
- "WikiLeaks has passed information to U.S. adversaries" (p.201)
5. it's completely false that "#WikiLeaks does not seem to weigh whether its disclosures add any public interest value" (p.200) and any longtime media partner like me could provide you dozens of examples on how wrong this characterisation
6. it's misleading to rely on judgements by James Ball who has spent the last decade crushing Julian #Assange, getting things so wrong that he argued that "The only barrier to Julian #Assange leaving #Ecuador’s embassy is pride". See #Guardian [ARCHIVE]:…
7. it's false to depict Julian #Assange's show "The World Tomorrow" broadcasted by #RussiaToday as evidence of "alignment" between #WikiLeaks and the #Russia government: my former newsgroup, l'Espresso,acquired a license and broadcasted the show [ARCHIVE]:…
8. it's also very dubious that the report claims (p. 221) #WikiLeaks never released documents damaging #Russia (remember the US Diplomacy cables on #Russia as a mafia state?), but dissmisses the #SpyFilesRussia as a mere tactic
9. dismissing the #SpyFilesRussia published by #WikiLeaks in 2017, as the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's report does (p.221) is completely misleading. Just look @AndreiSoldatov's comment on the #WikiLeaks #SpyFilesRussia:
10. as for the #Rohrabacher's version of facts reported on the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's report (p.221) , @suigenerisjen was there: she told a different story. Maybe we will have more details in a not far future
11. two last important things: the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee claims it "found significant evidence to suggest that, in the summer of 2016, #WikiLeaks was knowingly collaborating with #Russian government officials". Fine: bring the evidence. Name names
12. finally: the #SenateIntelligenceCommittee's report claims witnesses involved in Trump's debate preparation recalled the team first heard aboout #AccessTape "about an hour prior its public release" (p.249).
13. #WikiLeaks alerted me the day BEFORE the first batch of #PodestaEmails were published. If it is true that the first batch was published by #WikiLeaks in coordination with #Trum to counter #AccessTape, how could #WikiLeaks know?
