The Guardian is reporting that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange plans to publish more emails sent and received by Hillary Clinton while she was US Secretary of State.
In a Sunday interview with ITV’s Peston, when asked if WikiLeaks had any more undisclosed emails, Assange replied:
“We have upcoming leaks in relation to Hillary Clinton, which is great, WikiLeaks has a very big year ahead. We have emails related to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication, that is correct.”
Via The Guardian:
WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive in March of 30,322 emails and email attachments sent to and from Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of state. The 50,547 pages of documents are from 30 June 2010 to 12 August 2014, and 7,570 of the documents were sent by Clinton, who served as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
Assange, a trenchant Clinton critic, said she was receiving constant personal updates on his situation. The WikiLeaks founder has been confined to the Ecuadorian embassy in London since July 2012, when he sought asylum to avoid extradition. Assange is wanted in Sweden over allegations of rape dating from 2010, which he denies, but he has not been charged.
A Stockholm district court upheld an arrest warrant against the Australian last month, saying there was still “probable cause for suspicion” against him.
Asked about how he believed the FBI investigation would end, Assange said that there have been enough emails released that could lead to an indictment, but head of the US DOJ, Loretta Lynch, will not end up indicting Hillary…
“Unfortunately I think what’s going to happen is that the FBI is going to go ‘we have accumulated a lot of material about Hillary Clinton, we could proceed to an indictment‘”.
“She’s [Loretta Lynch] not going to indict Hillary Clinton…It’s not possible that could happen, but the FBI could push for concessions from new Clinton government in exchange for its lack of indictment.”
Zerohedge further reports…
The release of more emails is just the latest in an attempt to shed some light on Clinton’s dealings, and is in line with WikiLeaks search for truth, which Assange believes is that Clinton is a “liberal war hawk“, citing emails WikiLeaks had published showing Hillary to be the leading champion of the push to overthrow the Libyan government.
“They predicted that the postwar outcome would be something like it is, she has a long history of being a liberal war hawk.”
As we reported, Assange has made it clear that Clinton is just in search of endless war: “A vote today for Hillary Clinton is a vote for endless, stupid war“, which he then followed by saying “Hillary didn’t just vote for Iraq. She made her own Iraq. Libya is Hillary’s Iraq and if she becomes president she will make more.”
While the new set of emails that WikiLeaks is set to release may provide a temporary speed bump for the Clinton campaign, Assange may be right about his indictment theory. Recall back in April when we wrote that the FBI may leak details of the investigation if it feels the DOJ is standing in the way – well that started happening just a few days ago, which perhaps means no indictment is coming from the DOJ. What appears all but certain to come however, is more endless war if Clinton is able to defeat Donald Trump in the fall. On the bright side, think of how well global GDP will do if there are more global conflicts… right?
Let’s not forget that Hillary is part of the establishment, which will inevitably look out for one of its own. Broke the law, yes. Committed treason, most probably. Indictment, no chance.
