WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange accuses Hillary Clinton of electoral ‘extortion’

by Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times  |  published on August 8, 2016


WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has accused Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton of committing “extortion” by hyping fears over the possibility of a Republican victory in order to attract left-wing voters.

Mr. Assange, who spoke Saturday via a live feed before the Green Party Presidential Nominating Convention in Houston, released hacked emails last month showing Democratic National Committee officials plotting to defeat Mrs. Clinton’s chief rival, Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders.

“What the Clinton campaign is doing at the moment is trying to say, ‘Well, OK, yes, maybe we’re committed to arms dealers and to Saudi Arabia, and yes, maybe we subverted the integrity of the Democratic primary, etc., etc., but you’ll just have to swallow that, you’ll just have to swallow that or else you’ll get Donald Trump,’” he said.

“That’s a form of extortion,” Mr. Assange told party delegates to loud applause.

He urged voters to stick to their principles instead of casting a lesser-of-two-evils vote for Mrs. Clinton in November.

    I for one American Citizen am ‘Grateful to Mr. Assange for taking time to expose these emails and Hillary’s ‘expected cakewalk into being POTUS…….though she is a Liar/Criminal/Money Laundering-Fraud, who Loves Money/Power/ and Control for a “One World Order of Elitists/Globalists like Her, Obama, Bill etc.” at the same time “She has SOLD OUT AMERICA” and put Americans in Danger with her emails she hid from our nation/laws that required her to do otherwise.

    So many people have disappeared around those 2 –it is time for them to disappear also.!!!!!!!!!

    She should be in jail. Has anyone heard Trump say what he will do about the double standard for this woman. If some one had enough guts an audit of the Clinton Foundation should put her and Bill in jail.

    Como dice a dicho: hijos ay los dejo para que el mas vivo viva del mas pendejo. Este mujer (clinton) es mas viva que unos de nosotros y dice mentiras para que votes por ella. Si lo haces, eres el mas pendejo.

  • Sal Belardo

    Hillary is a compulsive, pathological, and serial liar! And the same for Barack Obama!

    • Anouk

      Very true! What about Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Harry Reid, and many more….

  • Worried Vet

    If they prove her server and emails being sent were not protected and the cause of this man’s death that’s treason period. Hillary and any of her minions and whom ever received the email and didn’t try to protect this man committed treason. There is no question of what the punishment is and should be no matter who it is and even if your name is Clinton. Every one should be punished the same for the same crime, not given a pass just because of running for POTUS. Being careless with top secret information is the same as executing our spies with her own hand. No one should get away with letting this type of information loose and unprotected. It causes deaths period.

    Yep, Shrillary is doing what all Deemers do, preach fear and tell lies to blame everyone except their own continuing failure……tax, spend and kill freedom with the use of bigger government…..

  • SCSOCAL

    Waiting for Julian to release his next batch of emails and take Hillary down.
    It should be coming in the next 4 weeks or so. He doesn’t make idle threats, he delivers!

  • justinwachin

    Actually that’s just hardball politicking. Politicians have always cast their opponents in the worst possible light. In this case the two major presidential candidates are so flawed that the task becomes extremely easy.

    • SCSOCAL

      The only thing you know about Trump is all the lies and spin you have heard from the MSM. We have 35 years of Hillary’s scandals and lack of accomplishments! The choice is very easy! Trump 2016!!

      • justinwachin

        I know that Donald Trump tried to use eminent domain to take a woman’s land. I know Donald Trump is being sued by people who feel they got scammed by Trump University. I know Trump run businesses have gone bankrupt and probably failed to pay all their creditors. I’ve watched Trump go after the parents of a Muslim soldier who died serving our country. So are you saying these things are all lies?

        Hillary has her share of scandals but the Donald is no saint. In the instances I listed Donald Trump went after people in a whole lot lower of a pay bracket than he was in. I think most Americans understand that and are reluctant to support a wealthy tycoon who tramples on the working class people.

  • Paul Ruff

    If JA, is only to let us in on all the E-Mail, inside info, etc on HC, then do it now!

  • Anouk

    In Florida, most of the Hispanics are going to vote for Hillary Clinton. They are low informed and it would be wise to Donald Trump to hire Spanish speaking people and explain to them how dangerous and corrupted Hillary is.
    It also said if Trump loses Florida he will lose the election.
    I hope Trump will do everything he can to win.
    America First.

    • Mark Terzano

      The problem is that they take the information from liberal sources news like Telemundo and Univision since they understand very little english to comprehend and they believe every word of it. Latin America in general has a biased opinion of the elections.

      • Anouk

        That is why I think that most of the Latino’s who are not knowledgeable enough are going to vote for the wrong candidate.
        Knowledge is power like we know. This a very important election and everyone should make sure to be aware of the true history of the candidates before to make their vote legitimate.

    She needs to be eliminated from the race.

      How about the face of the earth! Just an opinion!

    • unbridled

      She needs to be eliminated….Period.

    • dmttbt

      She needs to be sent before a firing squad which is the penalty for treason. She has done much more than some drug dealer or even human smuggler, she has betrayed her own country in a time of war. This haggling over private or work related e-mails is a crock. If there was nothing to the 52% that she deleted, why did she then have the server scrubbed 3 times? Sounds like there was something she didn’t want the rest of the country to find out about. She and her husband should both be tried as traitors and punished accordingly.

      • carpkiller

        I agree

    Five deaths occurred in two weeks time of people who were anti Clinton and I am hoping Assange has more along with something on O. She certainly has no business running in this race and O has no business as a Sitting President of us all, yeh right campaigning with her and being so openly aggressive towards Trump.

    Fact are Clinton did lie about her emails and she did get away with murder in Benghazi and the last report issued proved it. She now is seizing on stage and has done this several times. If you people worry about Trumps finger of the button take a look at this and ask yourself if this happened with her finger on the button where would the world be?

    She is unfit and also unhealthy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXdkiaZvTVQ

  • Shelly Shannon

    There is absolutely nothing this woman won’t do for political power. If Clinton supporters think she is going to make one thing better for them, think again. She is the devil in sheep’s clothing. She lives in a world of her own, not in the real world in which the rest of us live. If you think it is okay that the Clintons have people around them that are dropping dead and you feel their level of corruption is acceptable then you are going to be partly responsible for what’s to come. She has an agenda and it only concerns you until you vote. After that you are disposable.
