A US federal grand jury has unveiled a new superseding indictment against WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange. However, the filing brings no new charges.
A journalist told Sputnik that what Assange does is no different from other reporters and the indictment is an attempt to sour Assange’s name in the media again.
It’s a continuation of the smear campaign against this man, to turn public opinion against him, because his image and public opinion started to turn in favor for him in certain instances recently, so the timing of this is interesting.
They write negatively about him helping [former NSA analyst-turned-whistleblower Edward] Snowden to get out of Hong Kong and that Assange had booked various other flights for Snowden to provide a diversion, so that he could get out on the one he did.
What Assange had done was no different than what he did as an investigative reporter, including encouraging sources to give information, and even to commit a small crime in order to prevent a larger one.
All (without question) western main stream journalists must be whores to the status quo. you will never get any truth from those venomous spewing propaganda outlets period.
The Trump administration is very vicious towards Assange , an innocent man. America is behaving like Israel. No freedom of speech, to cover up the truth for the lies to continue?
Julian Assange is currently being held in Belmarsh Prison in the United Kingdom, where he is contesting potential extradition to the United States. The 18 fabricated charges combined could result in up to 170 years in a US federal prison.
