His name was seth rich. This is the fate of true journalists. Better stick to reporting what the CIA tells you to.

Accidental indictment? Assange is guilty of nothing. He has a right to publish and did what your news outlet and all others should have done, tell the truth.

The case against ASSANGE is Russian collision? That is hilarious ASSANGE's WIKILEAKS gave us the truth about Podesta, the Clintons and so much more. ASSANGE is a global TREASURE and a HERO. He is protected under the 1st Amendment

He did what a journalist should do published information to the public he didn’t steal or hack anything. When did the BBC and US corporate media become so lacking in impartiality? Those journalists that don’t get off their lazy smug spoiled arses and start supporting him and stop smearing him should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. If the have an ounce of integrity or journalistic ambition to serve the public and society at large then they should be screaming from the rooftops, because remember when he gone he is one less loud voice to defend them when those in power come for them.

Another reason why Canada should never merge with the U.S.A. The Yanks are going to destroy Assange. America is not a nation that I will ever live in.

when are these gutless politicians going to grow a backbone for the truth.
Mainstream media has done away with the word "allegedly"
Still trying to cover up the fact that they killed Seth Rich for handing over the emails to wikileaks. At the same time, they are covering up the fact that Hillary was tied to the sale of 20% of our uranium. And also, the reason they keep going after Trump is to keep the Clintons out of the spotlight of their multiple felonies.
I really wonder why Trump hasn't pardoned him.

R D:
The real criminals are in power. The people(demos) have no power(cratos), we the people do not have democracy, we have divide-and-conquer theater left/right party politics in which the people are lied to by media propanganda and false flag operations, decisions made behind closed doors.

What we need is real Democracy, open transparent and participative. With a constitution by the people, direct vote on laws and referendums on all matters, transparent and revokable governance with random selection of citizen groups to oversee/whisleblow/etc.

This requires for people of various opinions to set asside polarizing non-critical disagreements and seek consensus on a transparent democratic framework.

And BTW, the very fact we need whistleblower protection and wikileaks is an aberation, governance by the people should not be secret from the people in the first place nor rely on non-democratic opaque hierarchic organisations, it certainly is not a by- the-people situation. The people who usurp power and foster oligarchic fake-democracies work behind closed doors and want people to be scared of a real democracy and foster division.

Julian is a victim and like Skripak and Snowden was being used by fake judges and fake lawyers, and selfish / ignorant politicians who were only using him to get fame! The world should stop cyber criminals, and have people like Julian Assange for avoiding a cyber nuclear World War III, which will be the last one for sure☢️🆘🚸⚠️🧠🧐🤔🗽🚒🚓🚐🚑🇳🇱🇷🇺🇪🇺🇺🇸🤝etc.💪👍👏😄😇🤡

Russell K. Bonney:
So Trump now turns on Assange with 'trumped up' indictments. Why don't the 'cants' do what Saudia Arabia did. I know they would love to but Assange is just a bit too high profile. We all know the US "wacks" people all the time. Game of thrones has been going on for much longer than the "series'.
I love julian...!

The entire planet including all nations, especially the United States of America, Inc. and all jurisdiction, municipal territories, etc. need to clean up corruption so as Above so as below and all the spaces in between!

10 years ago a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

If there was nothing incriminating to be hacked from Hillary Clinton's, and the Democratic party's, emails... nothing would have been hacked. But there was. And they still don't care.

Lies, lies and more lies.

Russian Hackers? Try Seth Rich and it cost him his life. A bungled robbery? Two rounds in the back, nothing taken. Interesting that the CIA confirms the Russian hacker narrative...
Assange walks out the embassy the British police will arrest him for jumping bail in the UK. We are not sure that the charges against Assange has anything to do with the Russia probe. It was filed in a different jurisdiction.
David A Palmer

If the UK extradites Assange ANYWHERE especially the USA millions of us will kick the UK LIBLABCON and in particular the Conservatives out of office forever! I hope they never see the light of Political power ever again!

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?

facing arrest for what ? exposing and letting the world know who was murdering innocent children and civilians , their the ones that should be behind bars , not this truth teller
Sparta Batallion
Sparta Batallion:
Assange will not be arrested and extradited. Under Ecuadorian law he can remain in their embassy indefinitely. He's approaching 7 years at the embassy. Think about how much better it's been to spend 7 years at the embassy where he had the freedom to wake up and go to sleep whenever he wants. He can eat whatever he wants and shower whenever he wants. Go on the internet do whatever he wants. Much better than having spent the last 7 years in some american prison in inhumane conditions being tortured.

April 4 2019—a date which will live in infamy— Jullian Assange was suddenly and deliberately kidnapped by the dark forces of the American Empire. Shame on the UK!.
