Sweden Drops Rape Charges Against WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange

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.

Julian Assange Says To Sean Hannity … Source For WikiLeaks Was Not Russian Government

ASSANGE CLAIMS RUSSIANS NOT THE SOURCE OF WIKILEAKS PODESTA HACKED EMAILS

In an exclusive interview with FOX News Channel’s Sean Hannity, the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange said that Russia was not the source for the DNC and John Podesta hacked emails. Barack Obama and Democrats have blamed Russia for interfering in US elections with the hacks. Or is it that Democrats are looking to shift blame from themselves and Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing 2016 presidential election loss to Donald Trump? The WikiLeaks founder said that the Obama administration trying to ‘delegitimize’ Trump and his electoral landslide victory.

“They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House,” Assange said during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity airing Tuesday night, according to a transcript of excerpts from the network.

“They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate president,” Assange said during the interview, which was conducted at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been staying.

Real Clear Politics:

HANNITY: Can you say to the American people, unequivocally, that you did not get this information about the DNC, John Podesta’s emails, can you tell the American people 1,000 percent that you did not get it from Russia or anybody associated with Russia?

JULIAN ASSANGE: Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party.

ASSANGE: Our publications had wide uptake by the American people, they’re all true. But that’s not the allegation that’s being presented by the Obama White House. So, why such a dramatic response? Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President…

ASSANGE: Our source is not a state party, so the answer for our interactions is no. But if we look at our most recent statement from the US government, which is on the 29th of December, OK, we had five different branches of government, Treasury, DHS, FBI, White House presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out 29 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all of those statements? The word WikiLeaks. It’s very strange.

Wikileaks’ October Surprise Planned by Julian Assange on Tuesday in Video Appearance After First Canceling Due to Security Concerns

JUST WHAT DOES WIKILEAKS HAVE AS AN ‘OCTOBER SURPRISE’ FOR HILLARY CLINTON?

After having canceled his first appearance due to security concerns, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is now planning to appear via video link Tuesday morning at Wikileak’s tenth anniversary celebration in Berlin, Germany. According to Heat Street, Assange may be planning to release some new information his organization has obtained about the U.S. Democratic Party; however, it is unknown whether he will dump the dirt on Hillary Clinton. Originally, Assange was to make an announcement from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange has sought sanctuary for years, but was canceled due to security concerns.

Julian Assange

After canceling a planned announcement in London, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is now planning to appear via video link Tuesday morning at Wikileak’s tenth anniversary celebration in Berlin. He’s a last-minute addition to the roster of festivities taking place this week in Germany.

Wikileaks used its Facebook page to confirm that Assange would speak at the event, which takes place at 3am Eastern time.

Sources close to the event tell Heat Street that Assange may be planning to release some new information his organization has obtained about the U.S. Democratic Party. But Heat Street has yet to receive independent confirmation that Assange plans to dump information specifically on Hillary Clinton.

The news that Assange plans to appear (remotely) in Berlin comes after Wikileaks abruptly canceled a much-anticipated announcement in London that was to be made from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange has sought sanctuary for years. The cancelation was first reported by NBC News. According to NBC’s Jesse Rodriguez, the announcement was canceled due to “security concerns”.

There had been widespread anticipating that Tuesday’s announcement might have been Assange’s long-promised document dump on Hillary Clinton.

Just what does Julian Assange have on Hillary Clinton and will it derail her presidential campaign? Previously, Assange stated that he had “enough evidence” to indict Hillary Clinton. Everyone is awaiting this political bombshell and ‘October Surprise.’ A top Donald Trump supporter ominously declared that Wednesday will be the end for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. If Assange truly has the goods on Hillary Clinton and Democrats and does sway the presidential election for Donald Trump, my prediction is that Julian Assange will be names Time. Man of the Year.’

WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange Says Reporters are ‘Erecting a Demon’ by Protecting Hillary Clinton

ITS PRETTY BAD WHEN JULIAN ASSANGE BECOMES THE VOICE OF REASON … JUST HOW LOW HAS THE MEDIA FALLEN

Julian Assange accused the press of unfairly supporting Clinton, who he described as a “demon.” Assange said, “The American liberal press, in falling over themselves to defend Hillary Clinton, are erecting a demon that is going to put nooses around everyone’s necks as soon as she wins the election, which is almost certainly what she’s going to do.” If it were not for media bias Clinton would have been forced to withdraw from the race with the scandals in her closet. But instead, a bias media props her up just enough to hold a lead over Trump. Will the Wikileaks emails of Hillary make a difference? Do the people care that she is a liar and can’t be trusted? The election will hinge on two things, the first presidential debate and what Assange truly has on Hillary Clinton with regards to her emails.

Washington Times:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Wednesday accused “the American liberal press” of “erecting a demon” by shielding Hillary Clinton from criticism.

Mr. Assange took part in an hourlong interview with The New York Times on Facebook Live to discuss his role in influencing the 2016 presidential election.

He told journalist Jo Becker from the Ecuadorean embassy in London — where he has evaded extradition to Sweden for five years over sexual assault charges he calls political retribution — that reporters were doing the nation a disservice by not properly covering Mrs. Clinton’s record.

“The American liberal press, in falling over themselves to defend Hillary Clinton, are erecting a demon that is going to put nooses around everyone’s necks as soon as she wins the election, which is almost certainly what she’s going to do,” Mr. Assange said.
