By initially sensationalizing the Finders story, the media profited from immediate shock value while permitting this very sensationalism to become the premise for dismissing the issue, and Finders ties to the CIA to remain unexplored.
The Finders trail would ultimately lead to allegations of a cult involved in ritual abuse, an international child-trafficking ring, evidence of child abuse confirmed and later denied, and ties with the CIA, which was alleged to have interfered in the case.

Unlike #Russianhacking or #TrumpRussiaCollusion, there is a legitimate and serious scandal when it comes to Trump's involvement in the #Assange prosecution. The fact that the media hasn't covered it is a travesty multiple times over.
Testimony given in the last week of the Assange hearing was particularly damning for the White House, as evidence was aired that connected the Administration directly to the efforts to prosecute Assange.
During the hearing, journalist Cassandra Fairbanks testified that, “President Donald Trump had personally ordered Julian Assange’s arrest from the Ecuadorian embassy."
"As the Becks note, the documented election interference forming the basis of the DNC Fraud Lawsuit has seen no investigation or prosecution, with their suit standing as the single exception."
"The party’s own defense counsel indicate that the DNC sees the democratic process in its nomination procedure as meaningless, with the real decisions determined by party insiders."

Consortium News Sends Libel Notices to Canadian Signals Intelligence Agency and Major Television Network
The problem is less picking one candidate over the other, & more about backlash from recognizing that the @DNC primary process is so overtly rigged that it's not a matter of if there will be cheating, but how are the respective candidates going to react to it.
@DNC Some people aren't ready to face that reality. The problem with Bernie specifically is that we already saw his non-response to being cheated once, & Tulsi stood up for him more than he stood up for himself. Recognizing that is where a lot of Bernie supporters get angry.

Long Before #Epstein: Sex Traffickers & Spy Agencies
The unsavory history of intelligence agencies providing protection to child sex-trafficking rings.
"Everyone has a breaking point, and they will attempt to psychologically destroy him, and we have seen with #Guantanamo that several of these detainees, are emotionally crippled for life. It will be scientific torture."

Virtually every week during the #Unity4J vigils, we discuss the harmful effect of #Qanon & similar narratives re: holding @realDonaldTrump accountable for his horrendous treatment of both @xychelsea and #JulianAssange. We ask our guests how they feel we can combat this harm.
"... Many on social media are misleading others into thinking that there are legal proceedings afoot in Sweden today. This assertion is simply wrong. #Assange has never been charged in Sweden, the investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct was closed, twice."
"Consortium News today begins a series of articles, “The Revelations of #WikiLeaks,” that will look back on the major works of the publication that have altered the world since its founding in 2006."
"The so-called “Protocol” forced on #Assange without his consent has no legal legitimacy whatsoever, and never applied to the @WikiLeaks Twitter account, which Assange has not been able to access for over a year."

This thread only includes articles I authored. The #Forensicator and @with_integrity's plethora of work is additional testimony to the fact that the long slog of fighting #Russiagate misinformation was too often waged by people with a small or nonexistent platform.
