Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Says ‘A Lot More Material’ Coming on US Elections … New Emails Provide “Enough Evidence” to Indict Hillary Clinton (VIDEO)

MORE EMAILS COMING SAYS THE WIKIKEAKS FOUNDER

Julian Assange, Wikileaks founder, told CNN in an interview that his website might release “a lot more material” that pertains to the US presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton, the DNC and liberals are now all waiting for the other shoe to drop. What could the next round of hacked emails look like and how damaging might they be? Assange has said the release Friday was the first in a series and the new emails would provide “enough evidence” to indict Clinton.  Hmm,  think Democrats aren’t squirming right now? Maybe this is why Bernie Sanders backed Hillary like he did, disappointing many of his supporters. For all we know, if these emails contain what the Wikileaks founder says they do, Sanders just might be the Democrat nominee after all.

Just what does Wikileaks have on Hillary Clinton?

Interview with Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Tuesday his whistleblowing website might release “a lot more material” relevant to the US electoral campaign.

Assange was speaking in a CNN interview following the release of nearly 20,000 emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee by suspected Russian hackers.

However, Assange refused to confirm or deny a Russian origin for the mass email leak, saying Wikileaks tries to create ambiguity to protect all its sources.

“Perhaps one day the source or sources will step forward and that might be an interesting moment some people may have egg on their faces. But to exclude certain actors is to make it easier to find out who our sources are,” Assange told CNN.

Donald Trump Officially Announces his VP Pick … Indiana Gov. Mike Pence

This morning Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his VP for the 2016 GOP Presidential ticket. Trump described Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’. Trump heaps praise on Mike Pence and his character and honesty in contrast with lying, crooked Hillary. We shall see if this pick helps bring the Republican party together. Probably not a bad choice by Trump with all things considered.

Billionaire Donald Trump praised his newly minted running mate Mike Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’ on Saturday, using their official coming-out party as a platform to contrast the Indiana governor with his November opponent Hillary Clinton.

‘Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of corruption. She’s a corrupt person,’ he said.

When Pence spoke nearly a half-hour later, saying he was ‘deeply humbled,’ he drew a standing ovation for a line he uttered Tuesday, during the pair’s only other joint public appearance: ‘Hillary Clinton must never become President of the United States of America.’

The 57-year-old Indianan lauded Trump, ‘this builder, this fighter, this patriotic American who has set aside a legendary career in business to build a stronger America.’

Of course NBC has to try and divide the ticket before the ink was dry on the GOP 2016 presidential logo. One would think its more of a bold move to choose some one with a different set of opinions rather than a “yes” man or woman. But when you are the MSM, you try and cause hate and division of the GOP at all cost.

Donald Trump’s newly-named running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has shored up discrepancies over his contrasting stances with Trump on several key policies, including past U.S. trade deals, the Muslim ban and the proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“You know, you shut the door, you tell the boss exactly what you think,” Pence said on Fox News when asked by host Sean Hannity how he’d work through disagreements with Trump.

“But when the door opens, the job of the vice president is to stand right next to the president and implement the policy that he’s decided. And I’m prepared to do that.”

Could Iowa Senator Joni Ernst be a Possible Running Mate for Donald Trump?

ADD ANOTHER ONE TO THE VP SHORT LIST …

Could Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst be on Donald Trump’s short list of possibly VP candidates? According to the NY Times, Trump met with Ernst in Monday in New Jersey. Other candidates include Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, former Speaker Newt Gingrich and NJ Gov. Chris Christie.

Donald J. Trump met in New Jersey on Monday with Senator Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa, as he screens potential running mates in a series of meetings.

One person briefed on the process, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that the campaign began vetting Ms. Ernst in recent days as a possible vice-presidential pick. But it is not clear how seriously Ms. Ernst is being considered for a position that Mr. Trump has kept close counsel about filling.

Jason Miller, a senior communications adviser for Mr. Trump, declined to comment. In a statement on Monday, Ms. Ernst confirmed that she had met with Mr. Trump.

Ms. Ernst is a retired National Guard lieutenant colonel and a veteran of the Iraq war. Her military background could help Mr. Trump given his lack of foreign policy experience or national security experience. The fact that she is a woman could also help Mr. Trump with a group of voters with whom he currently polls poorly.

Ms. Ernst is also considered a possible keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention, which begins on July 18 in Cleveland.
