If you support Julian Assange you are an apologist for totalitarianism and the alt right.
As a new report reveals consistency just isn’t Assange’s bag.
The most likely explanation for this (aside from his right-wing biases) is that he seems to be a tool of the Russian government.
According to a new report by Foreign Policy Assange refused to publish at least 68 gigabytes of data with documents that contained damning information about the Russian government.
This decision occurred in the summer of 2016 – around the same time that Assange was publishing Democratic National Committee emails to damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign — emails which are believed to have been obtained by a Russian hack (a story by The Nation attempts to cast doubt on that but is currently under review by the publication’s editors).
According to partial chat logs reviewed by Foreign Policy WikiLeaks came up with a number of excuses for not publishing the documents.
Initially they claimed that the documents were already public, even though the data that had been previously published (all the way back in 2014) was less than half of what was presented to Assange two years later.
Later WikiLeaks told the source that they wouldn’t publish the documents because they wanted to focus on the 2016 presidential election (i.e., destroying Hillary Clinton).
