Assange wikileaks Trump

During the American election campaign, it wasn’t hard to guess which side Wikileaks was on.

Not only was Wikileaks openly focused on undermining Hiallry Clinton’s campaign, they even coordinated with Russian broadcasters for their release.

At one point, just weeks before the elections, Russia Today released a batch of Podesta emails even before Wikileaks announced them. That incident is captured here.

Other prominent journalists also claimed Wikileaks was actively aiding the Trump campaign.

 

Julian Assange himself admitted in an interview he wanted to harm Clinton’s chances of becoming President.

And now the Russians are openly admitting it.

Prominent pro-Putin analyst Sergei Markov was jubilant at Trump’s win and told the Guardian:

Markov also said it would mean less American backing for “the terroristic junta in Ukraine”. He denied allegations of Russian interference in the election, but said “maybe we helped a bit with WikiLeaks.”

That says it all really.

Wikileaks’s credibility is now completely shot

  1. Disgusted and disappointed by Julian Assange opportunism and selfish approach to the USA election. Can not believe that he could and did not find anythig on D Trump. I supose he hopes that he will be helped by republicans and Russians to finally be a free man again. Silly fool, they will do it only if they can buy his soul which they have almost done. At the same time there has not been a lot of support for Chelse Manning who has been rotting in jail for helping Wikileaks. No more support or respect for Julian Assange and his Wikileaks. And hopefully He will be kicke out of Ecuador embassy.

  2. I don’t understand why their credibility is shot?

    Was any of the leaked info incorrect? Or is it just because they were given to them by the Russians?

    Please explain your last sentence.

  3. Agreed Shaun! If the content of the mails was false or made up, yes that would be a scandal,,,,but it seems they were true.
    Blame the messenger?
