Assange blasts media for ‘politicization’ of election campaign in Fox interviews

by FOXNews.com  |  published on August 26, 2016


In back-to-back interviews with Fox News, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange criticized the U.S. media for “incredible politicization” in its coverage of the presidential election, and vowed there are more shoes to drop before the Nov. 8 vote.

Assange appeared Friday morning on “Fox & Friends,” where he said “significant” information would be published on the site regarding Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but did not specify what it would be.
“I know you guys would love it if we scooped ourselves on ‘Fox & Friends,’ but we’re not going to do that,” Assange said from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has lived for nearly five years as he fights extradition to Sweden where he is wanted on charges relating to sexual assault that his supporters say are politically driven.

Assange said information regarding Clinton’s health is fair game, and noted that in an email already disclosed by the organization, Clinton refers to her own “cracked head.” He said he had information about GOP nominee Donald Trump as well, but indicated it may not be as revelatory as critics might hope.
It is difficult “for us to publish more controversial material than what comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth every day,” Assange said. He also suggested Clinton and other officials have enjoyed a form of “elite immunity.”

    It gets tiresome hearing people whine about what Trump says but I for one can say he speaks for me, he speaks the truth, he says what many want to say but do not have the microphone, he tells the truth and gives the facts about what is going on and what has been going in this country by the liars and thieves in gov’t today. It’s time to support him and tell those that hate him, the ones who say this about him to shut up or prove what he says is wrong just because it exposes the lying trash liberals and the pos hillery and oboner..

    Obama allowed 2,5 Million Illegal Aliens into the country. Clinton wants to raise that number by 550%. That is an awful lot of lost jobs for American citizens.

    Presidential campaigns are highly politicized, Julian. That’s how America works. We’ve had a history of spirited campaigns in our nation.

    It sounds like Assange has emails that will bring Hillary’s health condition to the forefront. It also sounds like he has emails from the Trump campaign. I would agree that it is hard to top what Donald says as far as shock value sometimes.

    Clinton enjoys more than ELITE immunity. She relishes the thought that she can lie her way into the white house. I dread the day if she does get elected. This country and all its people will be domed.
