What Does Julian Assange Know About Hillary Clinton That She Doesn’t Want Exposed?

What Does Julian Assange Know About Hillary Clinton That She Doesn̢۪t Want Exposed?
Failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has done far worse to Julian Assange than what the UK police did when they yanked him out of his Ecuadorian Embassy hideaway of seven years yesterday.
Without proof of any kind, without a trial, Clinton has accused the organization Assange founded of playing “a dangerous role” in her 2016 electoral defeat.

By telling a crowd in New York that Assange needs to “answer for what he has done,” she has already cast him in a guilty-as-charged environment.

What is Hillary Clinton afraid Assange will say if he is tried by the U.S. for Wikileaks?

When the former Secretary of State was accused during the 2016 presidential race of wanting to launch a drone strike at Wikileaks, she had an inconclusive answer.

“At a press conference in Harrisburg on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton said she does not recall ever floating the idea of blowing up WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with a drone strike, and if she ever had, it was a joke. Assange claims that she wasn’t joking, citing online reports. (RealClearPolitics, Oct. 5, 2016)
“I don’t recall any joke,” Clinton said Tuesday afternoon. “It would have been a joke, if it had been said, but I don’t recall that.”
Point of fact: she didn’t say she didn’t float the idea—but only IF she ever had she would have been joking, adding that she didn’t even recall the joke.

Assange, who faces extradition to the U.S. on a charge of computer hacking conspiracy, says he fears being “beaten up” in U.S. prison.

“After nearly seven years holed up inside the cramped Ecuadorian Embassy in London, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is dreading the prospect of violent attacks on him in an American prison, one of his regular visitors told ABC News’ The Investigation podcast on Thursday. (ABC News, April 12, 2019)

“In an interview for ABC News’ “The Investigation” podcast conducted one day after Assange’s long-anticipated arrest by London police and court appearance on a 2012 bail jumping warrant and U.S. extradition request, one of his most frequent visitors described Assange’s fears of being sent to a US prison and subjected to violence inside.

“He did say he was worried that, if he was in a normal American prison, being beaten up,” war documentary filmmaker and former Taliban hostage Sean Langan, who has spent more than 50 hours with Assange in the past year, told ABC News. Langan’s last visit to Assange at the embassy was on March 22, he said.”

Assange, incarcerated in a British prison, until an early May court appearance, doesn’t seem worried about how he may be treated there even though it is alleged that popular activist Tommy Robinson faced physical violence during his imprisonment there.

The timing of Assange’s somewhat melodramatic arrest is worthy of note since it happened two days after AG Bill Barr announced the bombshell that he believed the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign.

Wikileaks is an organization that exposes classified and top secret information to the public at large.

Among the many outed by Wikileaks were some 9,000 supposed current and former ICE employees.

None of them was as vociferous as Hillary Clinton
in calling out for Assange to be held accountable, or to “answer for what he has done’”.

What is it that Julian Assange knows about Hillary Clinton that she does not want to come out?

Update: Julian Assange Arrested Partly For United States Extradition Warrant
By Joe Martino
Published: April 11, 2019
IN BRIEF
The Facts: A lawyer for Julian Assange has just confirmed that he has partly been arrested in connection with an extradition warrant from the United States.
Reflect On: Do we want to live in a world that arrests journalists for truth-telling? Do we want to live in a world where parental authority figures decide how our world works? We're capable of much more than what we currently do and how we live.

Further to our early morning report of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange being arrested, new developments are piecing more of the picture together.

A lawyer for Julian Assange has just confirmed that he has partly been arrested in relation to a request for extradition to the United States. This is further to reports that his arrest related to breaching bail conditions and for breaching asylum conditions of not engaging in political activity.

Jen Robinson took to Twitter with the confirmation stating that Assange’s arrest and removal from the Ecuadorian embassy was “not just for breach of bail conditions but also in relation to a US extradition request.”

Just confirmed: has been arrested not just for breach of bail conditions but also in relation to a US extradition request. @wikileaks @khrafnsson



Interestingly, it appears Trump’s administration continued its attack on WikiLeaks and Assange as we find out through a subsequent tweet by Robinson that the extradition warrant “was issued in December 2017 and is for conspiracy with Chelsea Manning” in early 2010.

Just confirmed: has been arrested not just for breach of bail conditions but also in relation to a US extradition request. @wikileaks @khrafnsson
From : The US warrant was issued in December 2017 and is for conspiracy with Chelsea Manning @xychelsea in early 2010.



For those that have been following us for a while, us seeing this further confirms what we have been saying about the current Trump admin, they are breaking down aspects of the shadow government, but don’t expect it to all be what you want to see, because it’s not. As a side to that, I’m aware that some in the Q movement feel this is all part of the plan to bring Assange back to testify against Hillary, the Deep State and co. I am simply not sure there is enough evidence to make that assertion, nor do I feel we can view Q and the Trump admin with the level of devotion many are viewing them with.

WikiLeaks official Twitter account tweeted the following:
Julian Assange will be taken to Westminster Magistrates court this afternoon. He has been arrested under a US extradition warrant for conspiracy with @xychelsea for publishing classified information revealing war crimes in 2010.https://defend.wikileaks.org/donate/ 
War crimes indeed. If you recall the “Collateral Murder” video that WikiLeaks released to the public, it showed Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as a US Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad after they are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths occurred. Worse, soldiers are heard laughing and having a blast as they conduct this mission like it was a video game.

Should someone be arrested for releasing such material? It was Chelsea Manning who provided Assange with the footage. She spent 7 years of a 35 year prison sentence in jail until she was granted clemency. In 2019, she refused to testify against WikiLeaks and was put back in jail until she agrees to testify. Who knows what Assange will face.
The Takeaway

Two good-hearted people wanting to show the world truth about what their governments are doing are turned into public enemies and have to hide away to avoid persecution. One ends up being sentenced to 35 years in prison while the other has now just been arrested. How does this feel for you to find out? Are these the politicians we want to support? Is this a system we want to support? Maybe it’s time we begin having the conversation about what a new system can look like instead of blindly adhering to the old and thinking it is all that is possible.
