what are the chances mueller and AG were not expecting the delivery of assange?

Um... what?

During former President Correa's government and while Patiño was chancellor, "they tolerated things like Assange putting feces on the embassy walls and other behaviors far from the minimum respect that a guest can have," said Romo.

Of course THE SHADOW HOME SECRETARY has said in the commons he's only being pursued because of whistleblowing against the USA. I fucking despair.

She's useless. Corbyn seems beholden to her for some reason.

If you'd had an affair with someone but never actually fallen out with them, there's no reason why you wouldn't keep them close as a trusted ally in the future given how well they know you.

In similar news, I'm sure the relationship between Seumas Milne and Jennifer Robinson is only a coincidence and has nothing at all to do with the front bench policy.

I don't know who Liz Crokin is, but...yeah.

Liz Crokin is "beyond ecstatic" and on the verge of tears at the news that Julian Assange was arrested, because it means that Pizzagate will finally be proven to be real.

Apparently she lost several digits in a surfing accident, which she naturally blames on Marina Abramovic and the Clintons:

“These people that I expose engage in witchcraft,” Crokin said. “You know, the people like Marina Abramović, the people like Hillary Clinton, [the people] from the deep state articles that are getting ready to write a hit piece on me right now. Well, look it up. Look it up. Do research on Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton and their trip to Haiti and how—I think it was on their honeymoon—they admitted to doing voodoo there together. Research Marina Abramović; she talks about the rituals she does, she’s an occultist. All these people dabble in witchcraft and spirit cooking,” she added. “So, do these people do witchcraft against me? Of course they do. And I wouldn’t be surprised if they were casting spells on me the night before.”

Lol, i think assange should definitely have stood trial in sweden, still should. But let's not pretend this has happened because of the rape allegations, or because of skipping bail 7(?) Years ago. Nobody of importamce in this business cares about the rape allegations, (or Sweden, word to Mattdc)

one reason putin-izing usa works is because some people will wonder if trump somehow got this to happen so he can get him here and pardon him lol. it wouldn't avoid impeachment except when it does indirectly lol

I’m a little surprised that trump wants him extradited, assuming he had any knowledge of this at all. what happened to reciprocity?

Ola Bini, who also works with Wikileaks, was arrested in Ecuador yesterday - with a minister alleging he was ‘working with Assange to destabilise the Ecuadorean government ‘.

Rafael Correa has had his Facebook page (with 1.5m followers) blocked after making further corruption allegations against Moreno. Facebook has justified it by saying it prohibits sharing the financial records of other users.

Leaving aside the rights and wrongs of his asylum / detention, the idea Ecuador just got sick of him being a bad house guest, which a lot of the tabloids and Vice have been pushing, is clearly very silly.

Tonight over 70 parliamentarians stand with victims of sexual violence, and are calling on both the Home Secretary and the shadow Home Sec to urge them both to be champions of action to ensure Julian Assange faces Swedish authorities and is extradited there if they so request:

Wikileaks started out with a noble purpose of complete openness, but in the last few years Julian Assange sold out to Russian interests and betrayed the trust of innocent whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden (though Snowden still seems to be operating under the delusion that Assange actually gives a damn about him). Manning needs to be released as soon as possible, now that Assange is in custody. Also, I used to defend Wikileaks but when I was expressing my support for Manning I found a whole host of transphobic tankies who didn't give a shit about her. Fuck Julian Assange and fuck Wikileaks; transfer whatever useful is left of the project to a secondary source and destroy the whole site.

I have a young boss who has turned out to be an Assange cultist and is convinced there's been a "dead drop" of "explosive information" that's been released post-arrest, including "proof that white genocide is real." Might be time to go job hunting.

Not sure what I thought about wikileaks at the time but have ended up thinking it's a bit too good to be true: the hacking and leaking of State A's secrets is just too good a technique for States B and C not to buy in/take over, surely? So it would just end up being used as a tool by one state against another rather than being some objective watchdog/truth-teller.

Note: is not a release, insurance dump, or response to Assange’s arrest. It is the page where published documents are available for bulk download so that people can create mirrors, access publications offline, or use the raw data. It has existed for years.

Mueller Report: Julian Assange Smeared Seth Rich to Cover for Russians

Julian Assange not only knew that a murdered Democratic National Committee staffer wasn’t his source for thousands of hacked party emails, he was in active contact with his real sources in Russia’s GRU months after Seth Rich’s death. At the same time he was publicly working to shift blame onto the slain staffer “to obscure the source of the materials he was releasing,” Special Counsel Robert Mueller asserts in his final report on Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election.

“After the U.S. intelligence community publicly announced its assessment that Russia was behind the hacking operation, Assange continued to deny that the Clinton materials released by WikiLeaks had come from Russian hacking,” the report reads. “According to media reports, Assange told a U.S. congressman that the DNC hack was an ‘inside job,’ and purported to have ‘physical proof’ that Russians did not give materials to Assange.”


With Assange behind it, the Seth Rich hoax moved into the almost-mainstream, spawning a quickly-retracted report on Fox News, and a series of “investigations” by Assange ally Sean Hannity. It also wreaked havoc in the lives of Rich’s surviving family, particularly his anguished parents who later begged perpetrators of the charade “to give us peace, and to give law enforcement the time and space to do the investigation they need to solve our son's murder.”

Even as he was ruthlessly framing Rich to protect himself, the GRU, or both, Assange was privately communicating with his real sources to arrange the transfer of the second election leak, material the GRU stole from John Podesta’s Gmail account.

one month passes...

According to several sources Mike Pompeo told Ecuador's El Universo newspaper that Assange will definitely be extradited to the US: for instance,

However, when looking for what he said (not that I speak Spanish or anything, but go to the El Universo site, type "Pompeo Assange" and then click Buscar = search, right?
finds this article:
that only has one paragraph mentioning Assange and it's only something like "he will have to defend his actions before a court"

There doesn't appear to be a dedicated Chelsea Manning thread? She's recovering following a suicide attempt.

just saw this, amazing news if it's true:

BREAKING: Chelsea Manning ordered released from jail, where she has been held for over a year for refusing to cooperate with a grand jury. Her testimony "is no longer needed, in light of which her detention no longer serves any coercive purpose."

If I understand correctly, she still owes the court 250k in punitive fees, but I'm sure a fundraiser or two will take care of that if so.
