Former FBI Director Comey Intervened to Kill WikiLeaks’ Immunity Deal to Provide Technical Evidence on Podesta Emails
WHY WOULD ANYONE HAVE TURNED DOWN SUCH A DEAL? UNLESS YOU DID NOT WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH.
From The Hill, John Solomon reported that WikiLeak’s Julian Assange could have revealed and was going to reveal where the leaked Wikileaks email came from. However, former FBI Director James Comey turned it down. In the past, Assange had stated that the leaks had not come from the Russians. So the question remains, why would Comey have spiked such a deal, unless he did not want the truth and the truth did not fit the bogus narrative that the Deep State was using against Trump? Last night Solomon went on with Sean Hannity and further discussed the story.
John Solomon: I would love to see the evidence he was going to provide. He was going to provide technical evidence that would answer who did not provide these documents. That would be critical to any investigation and why it was turned away is a great mystery to me.
Some of the characters are household names, thanks to the Russia scandal: James Comey, fired FBI director. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr. Julian Assange, grand master of WikiLeaks. And American attorney Adam Waldman, who has a Forrest Gump-like penchant for showing up in major cases of intrigue.
Each played a role in the early days of the Trump administration to try to get Assange to agree to “risk mitigation” — essentially, limiting some classified CIA information he might release in the future.
The effort resulted in the drafting of a limited immunity deal that might have temporarily freed the WikiLeaks founder from a London embassy where he has been exiled for years, according to interviews and a trove of internal DOJ documents turned over to Senate investigators. Read the draft immunity deal proffer that the Justice Department was considering for Assange here.
But an unexpected intervention by Comey — relayed through Warner — soured the negotiations, multiple sources tell me. Assange eventually unleashed a series of leaks that U.S. officials say damaged their cyber warfare capabilities for a long time to come.
