CIA colludes with Congress to brand Wikileaks a “hostile non-state intelligence agency”

In April, Trump’s newly appoint CIA Director Mike Pompeo branded WikiLeaks a “hostile non-state intelligence agency” which, according to Zerohedge, meant that Wikileaks would not be afforded the protections of the First Amendment under the constitution.

Assange infuriated CIA officials when WikiLeaks began publishing a series of leaks called Vault 7. The Vault 7 documented detailed the CIA’s hacking procedures and software capability.

Pompeo has not stopped his drive to do away with Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Zerohedge reports…

An angry Julian Assange slammed efforts to officially classify his whistleblowing organization as a “non-state hostile intelligence service”, decrying it as an attempt to put the “Pompeo Doctrine” into law. In its annual “intelligence authorization”, the Senate Intelligence Committee proposed to effectively declare WikiLeaks a terrorist media organization.

“It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States,” the bill states. Published on Friday, the Senate committee passed the bill late last month on a 14-1 vote, with only Democrat Ron Wyden of Oregon voting against the measure, citing “legal, constitutional and policy implications” that the WikiLeaks provision may entail.

In response, Assange tweeted a statement slamming the “absurd” decision to brand a media organizations in such a way.

“It is equivalent to suggesting that the CIA is a media organization. Publishers publish what they obtain. Intelligence agencies do not.”

Why is Dana Rhorabacher so silent? When will he reveal what was discussed in the recent meeting with Assange in the London embassy? If Congress passes this act, perhaps with 100% of votes, how could wikileaks release any facts about the source of the DNC “hacks”.
Will wikileaks be silenced before the truth is released? Is this the deep state plan???

Perhaps Rohrabacher has revealed the info at least to Trump and perhaps Trump and Cia made a deal because there has been nothing on the news at all about Russia, Seth Rich, the Tarmac Meeting, the Clinton emails, the Wasserman-Iman IT scandal, the Obama/Rice/Powers/Comey surveillance scandal. The only thing they talk about is the false narrative on how the Charlottesville riots took place.

Given that the CIA has been subject to Wikileaks publications, any position the CIA takes on Wikileaks can’t be objective given the CIA’s clear conflict of interest regarding anything connected to Wikileaks.
Plain English: CIA’s hubris was exposed and so the CIA is simply out to get Assange.
CIA’s vindictiveness and the manner the CIA considers itself free from limitations to pursue this clarifies how completely out of control the deep state really is.

It’s painfully obvious that using 911 as it’s impetus, the deep state has gained full control of the U.S. and will remain so for a very long time. The best the world can do is to continue the replacement of the dollar as the global currency, which it is doing at a notably accelerated pace in 2017 with the inclusion of China’s currency being added to the International Basket of Currency late in 2016 for one… which will protect China from the financial me’lee that the U.S. brought on by completely decimating the value of dollar in 2008.

Assange is wrong about this: “It is equivalent to suggesting that the CIA is a media organization. Publishers publish what they obtain. Intelligence agencies do not.” The CIA has been involved in all aspects of publishing and the arts, from Hollywood to literature to music to arts – from painting to sculpture. How else explain Pasternak’s Nobel prize, the mad ramblings of militant lesbian Russophobe Masha Gessen, and CIA hack-to-order Luke Harding and, to some extent, even Alexander Solzhenitsyn? That the YMCA press was infiltrated and controlled totally what the West got to read of Samizdat is a well-known fact.… Read more »

This comes from the same British establishment that is being investigated for systemic sexual abuse of children, and have their heads so far up the US ass that they would not hear their own mother scream for help.
I make up my own mind based on facts. What do you do, abufuck???

Most American wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the butt, and much prefer colorful lies to cold reality.

“It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service…”
Sense and congress should not be in same sentence-I have long given up on this putrid congress, owned by aipac, of drafting any sensible legislation or policy.

Freedom of the press is meaningless if MSM propaganda is protected and real news sources like WikiLeaks are not. I hate it that George Orwell was so damned prescient.
