Scorched. Earth.Julian Assange not only knew that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer wasn’t his source for thousands of hacked party emails, he was in active contact with his real sources in Russia’s GRU months after Seth Rich’s death. At the same time he was publicly working to shift blame onto the slain staffer “to obscure the source of the materials he was releasing,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller asserts in his final report on Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.
“After the U.S. intelligence community publicly announced its assessment that Russia was behind the hacking operation, Assange continued to deny that the Clinton materials released by WikiLeaks had come from Russian hacking,” the report reads. “According to media reports, Assange told a U.S. congressman that the DNC hack was an ‘inside job,’ and purported to have ‘physical proof’ that Russians did not give materials to Assange.”
I don't see it that way at all.Whatever.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that the debate has gone from outrage to war crimes to outrage over leaked information to outrage over rape to outrage over bad house guests.
All of it with little to no consequences. A series of outrages that all distract from the previous ones
I don't know about you, but it makes me feel kinda nauseated and want to hit the reset button.
It's not just the government's current weakness that's causing the problem -- it's pretty much an unprecedented situation, complicated by the fact that Sweden's request will be made under the European Arrest Warrant procedure, with the courts in control, but the US one is made under a bilateral extradition treaty, which gives more discretion to the Government, so different rules and procedures apply in the two cases.Yes, that sounds like an oxymoron these days.
