Julien Assaunge uses Hillary defense to urge charges be dropped against him
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange just raised an important point: If Hillary Clinton can email classified information on her personal email server and face no prosecution, why isn’t Assange treated the same way?
Assange and his attorneys have dropped a bombshell, which expose the double-standard of the Department of Justice’s treatment of Hillary. As long as President Barack Obama is in the White House, Hillary appears to be above the law:
“Our D.C. lawyers are delivering a letter tomorrow to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking her to explain why it is that the now six-year-long national security and criminal investigation being run against WikiLeaks, the reason I have political asylum, has not been closed,” he said on CNN’s “The Lead” on Monday.
“Because the DOJ, whose actions seem to be setting a new standard by closing the Hillary Clinton case,” Assange added. “The Hillary Clinton case has only gone for one year.
“Hillary Clinton’s case has been dropped, the case against WikiLeaks continues. So why is it that the, quote, ‘pending law enforcement proceedings’ against WikiLeaks continue? There’s a problem here.”
Assange compared the DOJ’s investigation of his organization with the agency’s probe of Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.
“It was closed under the basis that [FBI Director] James Comey said that they couldn’t establish that there was an intent to damage national security,” he said of the DOJ’s probe of Clinton. “In our case, there’s no allegation that we have done anything except publish information for the public.
He’s arguing that if the FBI Director James Comey decided that Hillary Clinton had no intent to purposefully damage national security… Then WikiLeaks should be absolved of all wrong doing. Deciding anything else is hypocrisy.
