Trump Jr. is going down before Thanksgiving and Kushner and Ivanka before Christmas. Throw the book at them and never let them see the light of day!
Nothing is going to stop Mueller investigation. Putin's puppet is already exposed beyond control. So get your popcorn and watch the final episode happily.

One of the emails Wikileaks released stated "There is a sealed indictment with Assange's name on it".
That's why he sought asylum, to avoid being extradited to America.
The asylum had nothing to do with women in Sweden.

Mueller is 100 steps ahead of everyone else. All those involved better lawyer up, because they are about to get a huge serving of Justice.

Pretend for a minute, you discover secrets about the lives of two rich and famous people. Do you keep silent?
Would you expose both parties?
Or just one of them, right before a major election, for your own self interests?
Maybe this was a case of the highest bidder for information. I don't know

I’m all for Assange and his cause. But he picked the wrong side when he shouldn’t pick one at all.

Legal issues with the questions? Oh dear oh dear that’s a shame.
Trump had access to the most expensive lawyers in the US and he still manages do something illegal? This is the beginning of the end of the Trump era. Hooray !
Isn't he in a different country now? Is he going to be extradited? Mueller the Night King has struck again.

Roger Stone, DonJr next on Mueller's chopping block.
Muellers coming like a freight train and there's absolutely 0 Trump can do about it. His son ..Kushner and Ivanka are going to prison with Trump right behind them.

Plea deal with Mueller or Putin green lighting?...I'd say he's in a tight spot. The smart move for Assange is to turn himself in before Vlad gets to him.

Wow I predicted this last week.
About time for this piece of work, whether they can sang him remains questionable but his connection to Donald "I Love Wikileaks" Trump is evident.
Nothing happens "inadvertently" you are being told this about Assange because they want you to know.

The dems and UK Russia phobia must be false flag to distract from there own guilt .
Idk why this is there tactic but very few leaders agree with it.i know most Americans dont .
The very same man who exposed the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal. We
have a lot to be grateful to Assange for. For exposing the truth

Wikileaks leak ANYTHING
Wherever the information came from WikiLeaks told the world about the dirty dealings of the US and other states around the world. Odinary people owe them a debt of gratitude.
You were caught with blood on your hands. Shooting the messenger changes nothing. US propaganda and spin on events generally carries far less influence as a result. Basically nobody trusts you anymore.

Wikileaks in of itself is not doing anything illegal. Only if they coordinate to hack information can they be guilty but if they just have a source who passes them the information then I don't see what the government can do.

It's absolutely amazing how many people are willing to let corruption slide simply because the info came from someone they don't like or benefits someone they don't agree with. So what if the Russians provided wikileaks with info. Had the DNC/Hillary not been *actually colluding* to rig the primary elections there would have been nothing to reveal.

I feel sorry for the desperation you are experiencing. So much emoting and very little truth. I feel as if I am witnessing a collective crumbling of an entire half of a country...my country.
Julian Assange say he is for openes and press freedom...
then he openly support the most corrupt person in the World
Someone that only trying to enrich himself at any cost that is the person Julian Assange decided to help come to power
When Julian Assange decide to publish the stolen Democratic emails did he even consider who he helped?
or is Mr Trump what Mr Assange stand for?
So was the request by the U.S Senate for Julian's testimony a couple of weeks before the date on the indictment a potential plot to get him here and arrest him?

Being charged for publishing the DNC emails that exposed thier corruption. Wow... It must be awesome to be Hillary, wonder what dirt she has on the DNC. So much for whistleblowers huh...
Please specify what damage Wikileaks has done to the USA? Other than publishing facts which reveal embarrassing incompetence or corruption? Please. I'd like a few specific facts. Go on. Waiting........ waiting for the bus.....
Oh that Trump now!

The Washington Post rushed the Assange story into print at 11:19. It contains major grammatical errors. It makes one wonder, what's the rush? What's coming next and how soon?
Mr. Mueller has sealed indictments with assigned judges that can't be touched. Google that.
Felton Mitchell
Felton Mitchell:
Obama knew he couldn't surveillance trump but that didn't stop him from wiretapping pootin and the Russians that's why we have the mueller investigation to begin with that's why trump pulled Brennans security clearance. There is enough evidence to change trump with a number of felonies.

In today's world, no Government should have secrets. They just breed conspiracy theorists. Then, those theories get so out of control and it turns people to treason, revolt, civil unrest etc.

What do you think would happen if there was a world summit and every government involved just spoke the truth about events like John F Kennedy's death or aliens, so the people stop believing in false theories?
Luigi Vincenzo
Luigi Vincenzo:
Oh dear, funny how Trump isn't pardoning Assange as he wanted despite all the help he gave him. Doubly ironic that this indictment seems to have come out of Trump's justice department and not Obamas.

Well done Julian, you played yourself.
