  • WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sues Ecuador for 'violating his rights'

    10/19/2018 9:19:16 AM PDT · by Gamecock · 27 replies
    Julian Assange is launching legal action against Ecuador, accusing its government of violating his "fundamental rights and freedoms". It comes after Ecuador cut off communications for Mr Assange, who has been living inside the country's London embassy for more than six years. WikiLeaks claims Mr Assange's access to the outside world has been "summarily cut off" and says Ecuador has threatened to remove the protection he has had since being given political asylum. This investigation has been dropped, but Mr Assange fears he could be extradited to the US over WikiLeaks' publishing of huge amounts of classified information. Lawyers for...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has been asking former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort about his former business partner Roger Stone, according to ABC News. Mueller in recent months has interviewed multiple people linked to Stone, a former Trump campaign adviser. Some of those people have also testified before the grand jury. "I am highly confident Mr. Manafort is aware of no wrong doing on my part during the 2016 campaign, or at any other time, and therefore there is no wrongdoing to know about,” Stone told ABC News. “Narratives to the contrary by some in the media are false...

    The government of Ecuador reportedly is making WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's internet access to a series of rules, including cleaning the bathroom, taking care of his cat, and steering clear of hot political topics. Assange is barred from "interfering in the internal affairs of other states" as well as activities "that could prejudice Ecuador's good relations with other states," according to a memo released by the Ecuadorean website Codigo Vidrio and reported by the Associated Press. Assange is also required to take better care of his pet cat, or else it will be confiscated and taken to an animal shelter....
  • Soldiers Allege Laura Poitras, Had Foreknowledge of 2004 Iraqi Attack on U.S. Troops

    The Weekly Standard ^ | June 12, 2013 | JOHN MCCORMACK
    When Edward Snowden decided he wanted to release details about the NSA's intelligence operations to the public, he reached out to Laura Poitras, a 49-year-old film maker and political activist opposed to the war on terror. As the Washington Post noted on Monday, Poitras had "the odd distinction of sharing a byline in The Washington Post and in London’s Guardian newspaper last week on two blockbuster stories." snip But perhaps it isn't such a mystery why the U.S. government might want to question Poitras if you simply crack open John R. Bruning's 2006 book, The Devil's Sandbox: With the 2nd...
  • WikiLeaks Says it will Bring Hillary Clinton Down by October 21

    09/15/2018 9:37:56 PM PDT · by bitt · 100 replies
    President Donald Trump has one campaign yet to fulfill and WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange is vowing to see that one fulfilled sooner rather later. In his words – “If Trump doesn’t take Clinton down, we will.” For almost two years, Clinton and the Deep State have been hell-bent on drumming up a ‘Trump/Russia’ collusion story that has yet to produce anything beyond made-up stories and ‘anonymous’ insiders. It seems Assange realizes time is running out for him in exile and he needs to do something to do that has evaded the President.

    This weekend, the WikiLeaks Twitter account claimed that cybersecurity expert Arjen Kamphuis went missing on August 20, two days before he was scheduled to fly to Amsterdam. This comes amid concerns about the security of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is about to end his six-year self-imposed confinement in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Norwegian police have opened an investigation into the disappearance of Arjen Kamphuis, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's associate, who was last seen in the northern Norwegian town of Bodo on August 20. ...

    The internet is buzzing with theories after Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange’s mother, Christine Assange, tweeted – and then deleted – what many believe to be a suggestion that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich “leaked docs proving corruption.” In response to the question “why did Julian publish damning docs against Hillary at such a crucial time which gave Humpty Dumpty Trump the upper hand?” Christine Assange replied “Its the duty of media to inform citizens about corruption,” adding “a #DNC #Bernie supporter disgruntled with rigging leaked docs proving corruption.” “What should Wikileaks should have done?

    <p>For much of the last two years, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr has been the Russia investigator who is seen but rarely heard on Capitol Hill.</p> <p>In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, the North Carolina Republican opened up about the investigation that has now consumed 19 months of his life. He says it has been “frustrating as hell” and much more difficult than he originally envisioned. But he says the integrity of the investigation — and its importance to the institution of the Senate — is something he has labored to protect.</p>

    WikiLeaks is claiming that the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked its founder, Julian Assange, to testify as part of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.” A spokeswoman for Warner declined to comment on witnesses. A spokeswoman for Burr also declined to comment. Assange’s legal team is...

    The hacking collective Anonymous is pledging to expose the people behind the "QAnon" conspiracy theory. The anarchist hacking group slammed the QAnon conspiracy as potentially dangerous and driven by a “brainless political agenda” in a video posted Sunday to what is widely considered the most reliable Anonymous Twitter account. “We will not see idly by while you take advantage of the misinformed and poorly educated,” the group said in the video, which was posted with the hashtags "#OpQ" and "#OpQAnon." The video depicts various figures with the Anonymous masks acting out certain aspects of the QAnon conspiracy over a constant...

    Ecuador is working to finalize an agreement to withdraw its asylum protection from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in order to throw him out of the country's embassy in London and turn him over to British authorities, journalist Glenn Greenwald reported on Saturday. On Friday, Ecuador President Lenin Moreno was in London, where he was to speak at the Global Disabilities Summit, Greenwald reports on The Intercept, but the actual purpose was to meet with British officials to finalize the agreement to turn Assange over. The WikiLeaks founder has been at Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012. Moreno will also travel...

    Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno traveled to London on Friday for the ostensible purpose of speaking at the 2018 Global Disabilities Summit (Moreno has been using a wheelchair since being shot in a 1998 robbery attempt). The concealed, actual purpose of the President’s trip is to meet with British officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, in place since 2012, eject him from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and then hand over the WikiLeaks founder to British authorities.

    Ecuador is ready to hand over the WikiLeaks founder to the UK in “coming weeks or even days,” RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said citing her own sources, as prospects of his eviction from the embassy are back in the media. “My sources tell [Julian] Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days,” Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. “Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong,” she continued. Simonyan's message comes, as speculations Ecuador is in talks with the UK over the future of Assange are back again...

    The U.S. was in talks for a deal with Julian Assange but then FBI Director James Comey ordered an end to negotiations after Assange offered to prove Russia was not involved in the DNC leak, as Ray McGovern explains. An explosive report by investigative journalist John Solomon on the opinion page of Monday's edition of The Hill sheds a bright light on how Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and then-FBI Director James Comey collaborated to prevent WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange from discussing "technical evidence ruling out certain parties [read Russia]" in the controversial leak of Democratic Party emails to WikiLeaks during...

    This is a breaking news story, and it is shocking to say the least. It was broken by The Hill’s contributor, John Solomon. In March of 2017, a ‘behind the scenes’ deal to negotiate with Julian Assange was in the works. It was essentially brokered to persuade Assange to the redaction of agency personnel in hostile jurisdictions and foreign espionage risks to WikiLeaks staff. This was when Wikileaks was ready to publish the Vault of tools used by United States Intelligence Community to spy on the population and whomever they chose. Those involved in this shocking story were James Comey,...

    The Justice Department on Monday announced charges against a former CIA computer engineer for allegedly leaking top-secret information on U.S. government hacking tools to WikiLeaks. In a 13-count superseding indictment, the agency charged Joshua Adam Schulte with illegally gathering classified national defense information and transmitting it to “an organization.” WikiLeaks published the data in March of last year. “Schulte utterly betrayed this nation and downright violated his victims,” FBI official William Sweeney Jr. said in the release. “As an employee of the CIA, Schulte took an oath to protect this country, but he blatantly endangered it by the transmission of...

    New York radio personality Randy Credico said Assange instructed him to communicate to Schiff that he was prepared to interview with the California Democrat. Credico said that Assange was interested in speaking to Schiff to show “there is no collusion," a reference to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Schiff has been vocal about his belief that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election. Schiff’s office responded... “Our committee would be willing to interview Julian Assange when he is in U.S. custody, not before,” in a statement Friday.
