Op-Ed: A Tale of Two Memos

Op-Ed: A Tale of Two Memos On Saturday, the much-anticipated Democratic rebuttal to the “Nunes” memo was finally released. As suspected, the memo contradicts some of the claims made in the majority memo, agrees with others, and completely leaves out important details. For example, the democratic memo starts off by claiming that, “Christopher Steele’s raw intelligence reporting did not inform the FBI’s decision to initiate its counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016.” However, the “Nunes” memo never refutes this point, and, in fact, even states on page 4 that: “The Papadopoulos information triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence...

Opinion: Fearless Adversarial Journalism Doesn’t Work When You Are Funded By A Billionaire

The timing of the article’s publication acted to brutally counter growing support for Assange that arose in the wake of a clearly unjust UK ruling. Essentially, the publication of the smear attempted to deflect attention from the revelation of corruption in the ongoing detention of Assange, and to assassinate his character in...

Important Decision On Assange Legal Case Is Imminent

Important Decision On Assange Legal Case Is Imminent A legal decision to be made tomorrow will determine whether the UK will drop its arrest warrant against Julian Assange. The warrant was issued on June 30, 2012 in connection with the Swedish investigation, which never produced charges against him and has now ended. If the UK does drop their warrant, it may force the revelation of a US extradition order against him. The news comes weeks after it was revealed that Assange has been given citizenship and diplomatic status by the Ecuadorian government, as reported by Disobedient Media. Sweden has...
