Last week, the left cheered the arrest of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. Today, CNN’s Jake Tapper discussed how the Mueller report points out that the dissemination of information by Wikileaks’ Julian Assange was not a crime, that he would have had to have a hand in the hacking of the emails. Tapper then attempted to prove that Donald Trump Jr coordinated with Julian Assange. Tapper cites public tweets about Hillary email releases as evidence of collusion and ends his discussion by admitting Assange is not guilty of anything.
What Tapper and reporter Laura Jarrett didn’t mention during their discussion, however, is that the Mueller report reveals why Julian Assange wanted Trump to win and Hillary Clinton to lose the 2016 presidential election.
According to Summit News – Assange, who was arrested last week and faces extradition to the United States, thought that it would be far harder for Trump to start wars given his platform and opposition from Republicans.
“GOP will generate a lot oposition [sic], including through dumb moves. Hillary will do the same thing, but co-opt the liberal opposition and the GOP opposition. Hence hillary [sic] has greater freedom to start wars than the GOP and has the will to do so,” Assange wrote.
He also made it clear that he thought Hillary was a sadistic sociopath who wouldn’t hesitate to engage in military adventurism.
“[W]e believe it would be much better for GOP . . . Dems+Media+liberals woudl [sic] then form a black to reign in their worst qualities. . . .With Hillary in charge, GOP will be pushing for her worst qualities., dems+media+neoliberals will be mute. . . . She’s bright, well connected, sadisitic [sic] sociopath,” Assange said.
Given these statements, it’s unsurprising that many leftists celebrated Assange’s arrest last week.
