Did Nigel Farage Offer Assange an Intel Job in Trump Administration?
Farage himself-who, not content with destroying his own country on the Brexit madness-dipped his toe in our election last year, palling around with Donald Trump-claimed ‘not to remember why he visited Assange as he was literally walking out the building.
One theory is-Farage offered Assange, with whom he has long ties, a job with in the Trump White House-an intel job.
“The anti-American group has become the preferred intelligence service for a conspiracy-addled White House.
“As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump declared, “I love WikiLeaks!” And he had good reason to display affection to this website run by accused rapist Julian Assange. By releasing reams of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, WikiLeaks helped tilt the 2016 election in Trump’s favor.”
“As president, Trump hasn’t come out and said anything laudatory about WikiLeaks following its massive disclosure of CIA secrets on Tuesday — a treasure trove that some experts already believe may be more damaging than Edward Snowden’s revelations. But Trump hasn’t condemned WikiLeaks. The recent entries on his Twitter feed — a pure reflection of his unbridled id — contain vicious attacks on, among other things, Arnold Schwarzenegger, the New York Times, and Barack Obama but not a word about WikiLeaks. Did the president not notice that the intelligence community he commands has just suffered a devastating breach of security? Or did he simply not feel compelled to comment?”
The notion that Assange is Trump’s intel is not as outrageous as it might sound. Or might have sounded before 2015, the year the country started walking through the Looking Glass. Assange has served in something like that role for Turkish dictator Erdogan-remember when Assange leaked the emails of all thew women of Turkey?
It makes sense: Erdogan considers all the women of Turkey to be his political enemies.
Assange at one point floated on idea on Twitter about setting up some huge database of Twitter users.
Perhaps Trump is staying silent because he stands to benefit from WikiLeaks’ latest revelations.
“Is it just a coincidence that WikiLeaks dumped a massive database pertaining to CIA hacking and wiretapping just three days after Trump made wiretapping a major political issue? Perhaps so. But there is cause for suspicion.”
There have been an awful of-very happy coincidences-for Herr Trump.
1. Guccifer 2.0’s release of the DNC emails at the worst moment just before the DNC convention started and the party was trying to unify the Bernie and Hillary supporters. We now know Roger Stone was talking to Guccifer 2.0 as well as Assange.
2. A few weeks after Trump asked Russia to hack the 30,000 emails, Roger Stone boasted of back channel conversations with Assange on releasing the 30,000 emails.
3. The last 40 days of the campaign, Wikileaks leaked more of Podesta’s emails every day. The first installment came the night the Hollywood Access video came out. Recall Roger Stone predicted the Podesta emails back in August.
4. The Comey letter comes out just 11 days before the election-when all precedent and protocol at the FBI and DOJ-which literally swung the election.
Now this. Wikileaks always seems to release things when they are optimally convenient for our so-called President.
I don’t know that i’d go as far as saying I don’t believe in coincidences, but I’m pretty skeptical of them. Here there have been way too many and way too convenient.
“WikiLeaks, which has often leaked American but never Russian secrets, has been identified by the U.S. intelligence community as a front for Russian intelligence. In January, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a declassified estimate that found “with high confidence that Russian military intelligence … relayed material to WikiLeaks.” This was done with a definite purpose: “Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him.”
“Trump has consistently resisted the intelligence agency’s conclusions, insisting that some 400-pound couch potato might have committed the hacking before grudgingly accepting the findings but continuing to claim that the Russian hack had no impact on the election. (Given that 70,000 votes in three states were his margin of victory, how does he know what affected the outcome and what didn’t? And if WikiLeaks was so inconsequential, why did he tout its revelations in almost every appearance during the last month of the campaign?)”
Well said. I never get how anyone can be so confident Wikileaks had zero effect. According to the numbers, the Wikileaks’ emails was the most covered email story, the email server was second. Like Boot says, only a tiny margin-77,000 in three swing states.
It’s like the Comey letter. In retrospect Trump doesn’t want to talk about it but at the time he tweeted that it had swung the race and the media coverage/headlines asserted the same.
“It is significant, therefore, that one of the major storylines to emerge from the latest WikiLeaks release is that the CIA supposedly has a program to reuse computer codes from foreign hackers, thus disguising CIA fingerprints on a hacking operation. Never mind that there is no evidence that the codes used to break into the DNC were part of this CIA database. Right-wing outlets are nevertheless trumpeting these revelations with headlines such as this one on Breitbart: “WikiLeaks: CIA Uses ‘Stolen’ Malware to ‘Attribute’ Cyberattacks to Nations Like Russia.” Russian-controlled Internet “bots” are also said to be playing up these claims online.”
“The implication is clear. Trump was a victim of a “false flag” operation wherein CIA hackers broke into the DNC and blamed the Russians. This may be nutty, but it’s eminently believable to an audience conditioned to believe that 9/11 was an inside job and that the Sandy Hook massacre was staged — favorite tropes of the radio talk-show host Alex Jones, whose work Trump has praised. Other WikiLeaks revelations — for instance, that the CIA can use Samsung smart TVs as listening devices — lend further credence to Trump’s charge that he was secretly wiretapped.”
Sean Hannity now claims to believe this: that the CIA setup Russia. Think about where we are. The GOP, allegedly the party of all True Patriots now is demonizing the CIA to exonerate Russia. For years they accused us liberals of not being ‘real Americans’-remember Jeanne Kirkpatrick at Reagan 1984?
‘There are only liberals and Americans.’
As usual it’s projection. The Republican party, frustrated that they’ve lost the country was willing to do anything to rule. Even except Russian subversion and the demonization of our own intel agencies.
