Assange: It’s Over Hillary, ‘October Surprise’ Biggest Leak To Date

Fact checked

The Wikileaks project has always been more like opposition research than even-handed reporting. Assange's goal is to find dirt in the servers of powerful individuals or organizations he sees as corrupt or dangerous, and bring them down by exposing it. As he memorably told Der Spiegel in 2010, “I enjoy crushing bastards.”

Julian Assange has warned he has enough evidence on Hillary Clinton making secret deals with an alleged Islamic State sponsor for the FBI to indict her.

Wikileaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange promised to release more damning emails about the Clinton Foundation, and warned he has enough evidence on Hillary Clinton making secret deals with an alleged Islamic State sponsor for the FBI to indict her.

Asked by British journalist Afshin Rattansi on Saturday if he had “the email which will put Hillary Clinton behind bars,” Assange claimed to have 350 emails on a French transnational concrete company named Le Farge that allegedly paid ISIS to do business in regions controlled by the terror group.

The report, by British political blog The Canary, showed the Clinton Foundation accepted upwards of $100,000 from the ISIS sponsoring company.

The Canary also detailed Hillary Clinton’s direct links to the Secret ISIS sponsor:

From 1990 to 1992, Clinton served on Lafarge’s Board of Directors. Under her tenure, Lafarge’s Ohio subsidiary was caught burning hazardous waste to fuel cement plants. Clinton defended the decision at the time.

Then just before her husband, Bill Clinton, was elected president in 1992, Lafarge was fined $1.8 million by the Environmental Protection Agency for these pollution violations. Hillary Clinton had left the board of Lafarge in spring, just after her husband won the Democrat nomination. A year later, under Bill’s presidency, the Clinton administration reduced Lafarge’s EPA fine to less than $600,000.

In the late 1980s, according to an archived investigative report in the American Spectator, Hillary Clinton was connected to Lafarge when the firm was involved in facilitating CIA support for Saddam Hussein’s secret weapons program.

Assange also spoke about Hillary Clinton’s close ties to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is probably the largest single donor to the Clinton Foundation, and you can see Clinton’s arms export policies when she was a secretary of state favoring extensively Saudi Arabia,” Assange said.

He also suggested Clinton had a reason for attempting to smear rival Donald Trump over his alleged ties to Russia: She has her own links she’s trying to conceal.

There is a much deeper connection on record with Hillary Clinton and Russia than we are presently aware of with Donald Trump,” Assange said. “Hillary Clinton did quite well strategically to draw a connection between Trump and Russia because she has so many connections of her own.

Senior Democratic officials see these email leaks as one of several curveballs that could swing the election, especially if they are released in October.

We may be headed into uncharted waters, and this has the potential to spiral out of control,” veteran Democratic operative Jim Manley said.

Speaking at the Green Party convention on Saturday, Assange responded to criticism that Wikileaks has started to resemble an opposition research firm working to undermine Hillary Clinton, more than a non-partisan platform for whistleblowers.

When we published the DNC leaks, the New York Times, which picked it’s favorite candidate … said that I intended to harm Hillary Clinton.”

This is what we’ve been doing for 10 years,” he told the convention delegates via video feed. “It was a completely fabricated story.”

He told the convention that Wikileaks doesn’t target individuals — it’s all about publishing the truth.

We are very interested in power and publishing the truth about power so people can work out however they choose so they can reform power.

  1. Recent Events: Rio Olympics, DNC leaks, Clinton and Trump, and Third Parties

  2.  And who is going to have the ballingos to start this rolling? I picture a room full of cowards looking at each other hoping the other will.
      “Real men” are a rare species anymore.

    • — Very sad to have to admit, you are absolutely correct. But, I sure as hell wish you were wrong. You’re not! 

  3. Why does he have to wait until October? Is that just to reference the October Surprise by Reagan? He should out her now and get it over with!

  4. Unfortunately, Mme. Clinton has made herself very easy to vilify. Maybe she would like to explain to Assange why she dropped in unannounced to Stockholm just when his Swedish problem had been dismissed by the Swedish justice department and all of a sudden, immediately after she left, the case was on again!

  5. Edward Snowden never returned to the US. If he had left Russia, he’s most likely hiding in a neutral or anti-American country. Venezuela, anyone?
    I agree with George Reichel that criminals do run free and get richer, while whistleblowers are prosecuted and then imprisoned. However, Snowden is still free; otherwise, he’d never be able to supply Assange and Wikileaks with any information. As far as I know, the USG hasn’t eliminated the death penalty.

  6. Thank you Mr. Assange. Criminals of the worst kind, those against humanity, deserve everything coming to them
