Assange Reiterates Once Again: No, Russia is NOT Our Source

Written by Philip Hodges

He’s said it a million times, and he can keep saying it until he’s black in the face (is that racist?), but it won’t matter. People won’t believe him, because they’ll assume he’s lying. People would rather believe the national media and the government who have been campaigning to sway public opinion such that people are fearful and hateful of Russia, particularly Vladimir Putin.

Julian Assange has stated once again unequivocally that the source for the DNC leaks as well as John Podesta’s emails was not someone in any way associated with Russia. In other words, his source was not someone who is Russian, and the source was not someone working on behalf of Russia.

Here’s part of his exchange with radio and TV host Sean Hannity:

HANNITY: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta’s emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?

JULIAN ASSANGE: Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.

Here’s more of what he said:

ASSANGE: Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they’re all true. But that’s not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House. So, why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President…

ASSANGE: Our source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no. But if we look at our most recent statement from the US government, which is on the 29th of December, OK, we had five different branches of government, Treasury, DHS, FBI, White House presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out 29 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all of those statements? The word WikiLeaks. It’s very strange.
