WikiLeaks NOT Done Yet, Says They Have Emails That Could Finally Indict Hillary
Julian Assange is back in the news, but it's not because the U.S. has finally managed to extract him from the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he's been holed up for the past long while. Assange, instead, is in the news because he says that WikiLeaks, the website he's in charge of, has information that could finally lead to the indictment of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
In a secure video interview with ITV, Assange told the public that another batch of emails that he's preparing to unleash could be the thing that finally tips the scales in favor of Clinton facing indictment.
Though he wasn't specific, Assange let drop that the emails in question contain information about the workings of the Clinton Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Bill and Hillary Clinton's family fortunes. The Clinton Foundation has already been in the news for accepting donations from foreign governments and then using those donations to further Hillary's political aspirations. The foundation was also a party in the corrupt scam that enabled Huma Abedin, Clinton's top advisor, to collect no fewer than four paychecks for doing the same work.
But Assange is as skeptical as the rest of us that Clinton will ever be called before a jury to answer for her crimes.
Noting the reluctance of the Obama administration to do anything to punish Clinton, Assange said that Obama's Attorney General "is not going to indict Hillary Clinton. It’s not possible that could happen. But the FBI could push for new concessions from the Clinton government in exchange for its lack of indictment."
That last sentence hints at inner-workings of the government that Assange might know about that aren't public knowledge to the rest of us. Could Clinton really be working a deal with the FBI to give them more power during her administration in exchange for not locking her up?
Time will have to tell, but we can hope that this next batch of emails further condemns Clinton.
