Julian Assange of Wikileaks fame, has been asked to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. To finally settle once and for all, the emails from the DNC. Assange has been consistent in stating that Russia was not the source of the emails.
Furthermore, he has also hinted at the real source as Seth Rich, who was murdered under mysterious circumstances. His testimony could blow the entire Russian collusion investigation out of the water…
Because it would be further proof the Hillary dossier was a work of fiction. Certainly created by her campaign and the DNC.
The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed-door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.”
WikiLeaks released troves of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta ahead of the 2016 election. The U.S. intelligence community has tied the email releases to the broader plot by the Russian government to interfere in the election.
The unclassified U.S. intelligence assessment released in January 2017 concluded with “high confidence” that Russian intelligence officers “relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks.” James Comey, then FBI director, testified last year that WikiLeaks did not communicate directly with the Russians but used “some kind of cut-out.”
There’s one giant fly in the ointment. If Assange comes to the United States, he is subject to arrest for publishing the material Chelsea Manning stole. He/she/it had her sentence commuted but it is likely Democrats will demand he be given life. Therefore, there would need to be an agreement allowing him safe passage in and out of the country.
Deep State NeverTrumper, Rod Rosenstein, would have to sign off on the deal. Which he likely will refuse to do. The last thing in the world he wants is for the truth to come out.
