The moment we have all been waiting, a Wikileaks announcement so shocking that it would “devastate” Hillary Clinton campaign. Unfortunately, the only people it devastated were fans of Julian Assange who were expected something more from the 10 year anniversary of Wikileaks.
Prior to Assange, several Wikileaks speakers talked about establishing the truth and how their documents have been used as evidence to combat the crimes of corrupt governments. By making troves of documents available, Wikileaks has made legal recourse available for the common person against government powerhouses around the world. Ironically, they also mentioned unbalanced and unfair trade agreements, which is a topic that Donald Trump has made one of the cornerstones of his campaign.
Wikileak’s Julian Assange went live at about 5:00pm, EST, and began by thanking some of his associates. He continued speaking about the releases from Wikileaks, and how they add up to an average of 3,000 documents a day.
Assange reviewed the danger that many individuals have faced while getting confidential information to Wikileaks. He went as far to say, “Some of our sources has suffered terrible consequences in the United States”, perhaps alluding to the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich, which to this day no motive has been found.
Julian Assange went on to speak about the goals and nature of Wikileaks.
Finally, Assange said “I understand theirs enormous expectation in the United States.” You think? You’ve only been building up to this “enormous” revelation that he claimed would involve the US elections for the past month.
Then came the let down.
“If we’re going to make a particular announcement impacting the US, we don’t do it at 3am.”
So he couldn’t have sent a tweet saying this before people stayed up all night to hear his announcement?
By stating that he was aware of the expectations of the US audience, he admits that he knew people would be staying up to hear what he had to say. Did he really have to wait until everyone was already watching to make this statement, or could he have just sent out a message hours before?
Assange continued to say they had addition documents and they would definitely be released “by the end of the year”.
So not by the presidential election taking place in 34 days? He did state during a Fox News interview in early September, that he had some “very interesting” releases coming out in the next week or two. It’s now almost a month later, and those leaks have yet to be made public.
Maybe the “threats on his life” over recent days have finally got to him.
Towards the end of Assange’s speech he took the time to market some Wikileak’s product, holding up a video box and a book that they selling…Way to hype up half of the voters in the United States who were expecting a damaging release related to Hillary Clinton, only to try and sell your Wikileak’s products to the viewers.
Has the pressure of death threats finally gotten to Assange? After all, I don’t think he’s ever had anyone after him with as high of a body count behind her as Hillary Clinton.
