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.
THESE PEOPLE ARE INSANE AND JUST CAN’T ACCEPT THEY LOST TO DONALD J. TRUMP … TALK ABOUT YOUR SORE LOSERS!!!
By the way the Democrats and Hillary have acted since the 2016 elections, thank God Donald Trump won.
Hey DNC, Democrats and the LEFT, don’t ask for things they just might come true. For nearly a year Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been trying to find evidence of collusion between Russian and Donald Trump and has discovered butkis. Now, with Mueller floundering to find any crimes to pin on Trump, FBI former #2 Andrew McCabe in hot water after the DOJ’s Inspector General, FBI’s former #1 being looked at for leaking classified info, the deep state being exposed … we get this classic that the DNC is suing Russia, WikiLeaks and Trump campaign for interference in the 2016 election. UNREAL. They LEFT just cannot accept that they lost to Trump. The DNC is seeking recompense for what it says was millions of dollars in damages from Russia’s hacking of its internal emails, which were then published by WikiLeaks, with the encouragement of then-candidate Trump and his campaign. REALLY? This from the same people who never let the FBI examine their servers after the so-called hack. What were they afraid of, that is was an inside job?
The Democratic Party on Friday sued President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Russian government and the Wikileaks group, claiming a broad illegal conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election.
The multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that “In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort” to mount “a brazen attack on American Democracy,” which included Russian infiltration of the Democratic Party computer network.
The Trump campaign, according to the lawsuit, “gleefully welcomed Russia’s help.”
The suit says that “preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs” with Trump and Trump associates “provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy.”
The common purpose of the scheme, according to the Democratic National Committee, was to “bolster Trump and denigrate the Democratic Party nominee,” Hillary Clinton, while boosting the candidacy of Trump, “whose policies would benefit the Kremlin.”
Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said the party’s suit “is not partisan, it’s patriotic.”
The DNC is playing a very dangerous game. They are in full on “resistance” mode all they time, which is growing really old. I have one thing to say to the DCN, you better be prepared for “discovery”. Maybe we will find out once and for all that they DNC was not hacked, but an inside job. The Democrats have nothing but to cause chaos. I cannot wait for this to backfire on them. You have been warned.
The Democrats and Hillary Clinton have been the biggest bunch of sore losers ever. Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate, hell she lost to an unknown Obama 8 years earlier. Now sour grapes Hillary who just cant let it go blames everyone else in the word but herself, Hillary Clinton on Election Night: ‘They Were Never Going to Let Me Be President’. Good grief folks, does it ever jut dawn on you by they way you and she is acting is the reason why you lost? The Dems better hope this case gets tossed on summary judgement, because the ultimate destruction of the Democrats will be when Julian Assange states he received the emails from Seth Rich.
The Trump campaign called it a “sham lawsuit” and said it smacks of desperation on the part of the DNC. Gee, ya think?
Rep. Rohrabacher: ‘Rendezvous’ with President Trump Being Set Up To Provide Info from WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange on DNC Hacking
THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING, MAKES YOU WONDER WHY MUELLER DID NOT GO THIS ROUTE …
As reported at CNN, Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher said Monday that a “rendezvous” is being set up between him and President Donald Trump to relay information he received from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about the hack of the Democratic National Committee last year. Rohrabacher has stated that this information would absolve Russia of allegations that it hacked the Democratic National Committee.
Listen to the interview above
“It is my understanding from other parties who are trying to arrange a rendezvous with myself and the President, it is being arranged for me to give him the firsthand information from (Assange),” Rohrabacher said.
Earlier in the interview, Rohrabacher said evidence he saw painted the Democratic National Committee hack being an “inside job,” a claim Rohrabacher has made before. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released an unclassified report in January revealing the conclusions from the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency that the Russian government was behind the hack of the DNC.
“If the information comes out, there will be an outrage among the American people that their time has been wasted,” Rohrabacher said. “They’ve had this story over and over and again shoved down their throats as if the Russians colluded with Donald Trump, and this is an attempt, as I say, to negate their vote in the ballot booth. When the American people realize that this is a con job and a power grab they’ll be upset.”
“I’m trying to get this out in the public now where we can get this Julian Assange thing straightened out so that people know that it wasn’t the Russians that hacked into the system, and that’s not how this information was released,” he said.
Julian Assange Denying hacking info came from Russia
SWEDEN DROPS RAPE INVESTIGATION AGAINST WIKILEAKS FOUNDER …
As reported in the NY Times, prosecutors in Sweden have dropped the rape investigation into the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange. For the past five years, Assange has taken refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London after the authorities in Stockholm opened a preliminary rape inquiry against him. Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny said in a statement, that the prosecutors office said it decided to end the investigation because “there is no reason to believe that the decision to surrender him to Sweden can be executed in the foreseeable future.”
Prosecutors in Sweden said on Friday that they would drop their investigation into Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder who sought refuge in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London five years ago after the authorities in Stockholm opened a preliminary rape inquiry against him.
With a legal cloud hanging over him, Mr. Assange, 45, an Australian, had refused to go to Sweden for fear of being extradited to the United States, but the prosecutors’ decision does not mean that Mr. Assange is in the clear.
In Britain, he still faces a warrant for failing to appear in court, and the London police said on Friday that they would arrest Mr. Assange, who has maintained his innocence, if he tried to leave the embassy.
MAKES ONE ALMOST WANT TO GO BACK TO A ROTARY DIAL LAND LINE OR BETTER YET, TELEGRAPH AND A PHILCO BLACK & WHITE TV WITH RABBIT EARS ANTENNA…
In the wake of the latest Wikileaks dump, several of the tech firms whose products have been allegedly compromised by the CIA have given their first reactions to the claims. Companies like Apple looked quell worries from their users by issuing a statement to TechCrunch designed to alleviate concerns that the company’s products might still be vulnerable to a laundry list of CIA exploits. In short, Apple maintains that many of the iOS vulnerabilities the CIA previously relied upon have already been patched.
Apple’s statement was the most detailed, saying it had already addressed some of the vulnerabilities.
“The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we’re constantly working to keep it that way,” it said.
“Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80% of users running the latest version of our operating system.
“While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities.
“We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security update.”
Samsung – whose F8000 series of televisions was reportedly compromised via a USB connection-based hack co-developed with the UK’s MI5 agency – was briefer.
“Protecting consumers’ privacy and the security of our devices is a top priority at Samsung,” it said.
“We are aware of the report in question and are urgently looking into the matter.”
The leaks also claimed that the CIA had created malware to target PCs running Microsoft’s Windows operating system.
“We are aware of the report and are looking into it,” a spokesman from Microsoft said.
Google declined to comment about allegations that the CIA was able to “penetrate, infest and control” Android phones due to its discovery and acquisition of “zero day” bugs – previously unknown flaws in the operating system’s code.
Likewise, the Linux Foundation has yet to publicly react to claims the agency had created “attack and control systems” that could hijack computers powered by Linux-based software.
The World Wide Web Foundation – which campaigns for internet privacy – said the US government needed to issue a detailed response.
