WikiLeaks founder (and self-described political prisoner) Julian Assange made an interesting appearance on Fox News’ Hannity Show on Tuesday night to talk about Hillary Clinton’s history of corruption and lying. It was a revealing few minutes and something that I hope will get coverage across the media over the next few days.
After host Sean Hannity explained that he was conflicted about supporting Assange and WikiLeaks but that he did appreciate their efforts to bring transparency to the government, the conversation quickly moved to Hillary Clinton’s many crimes.
The entire interview is well worth listening to, but there was one particular segment that I believe will get the most airtime moving forward. About halfway through their conversation, Assange explains to Hannity how we can know for certain that Hillary Clinton lied to the FBI… and it really doesn’t leave any room for doubt.
“In the FBI report released Friday. Hillary Clinton says that she can’t remember what a (C) in brackets stands for. Everyone in positions of government, and in WikiLeaks, knows it stands for Classified/Confidential.
In fact we have already released thousands of cables. By Hillary Clinton, here she is. See, that is her signature. With a “(C)” in bracket right there. Thousands of examples where she herself has used a (C) in brackets by herself. And more than 22,000 times where she has received cables from others with this (C) in brackets. So it is absolutely incredible for her to lie.
She is lying about not knowing what that is. But it is a bit disturbing that Comey goes along with that game.”
It really is proof positive of her crime of lying to the FBI. How could she not know what the “(C)” meant when she had personally used (and received) the marking on tens of thousands of different pieces of correspondence? It’s an impossibility.
