Opinion: The Guardian’s Desperate Attempt To Connect Assange To Russiagate Backfires

Opinion: The Guardian’s Desperate Attempt To Connect Assange To Russiagate Backfires The Guardian’s latest attack on Julian Assange was not only a fallacious smear, it represented a desperate attempt on behalf of the British intelligence community to conflate the pending US charges against the journalist with Russiagate. The Guardian’s article seeks to deflect from the reality that the prosecution of Assange will focus on Chelsea Manning-Era releases and Vault 7, not the DNC or Podesta emails.

Mueller’s RussiaGate Probe: Conflicts, Presuppositions and Special Interests

Forensicator: Guccifer 2.0’s Russian Breadcrumbs

Forensicator: Guccifer 2.0’s Russian Breadcrumbs Editorial note: Forensicator recently published a report titled Guccifer 2’s Russian Breadcrumbs, digging out many new metadata clues found in the documents that Guccifer 2.0 modified before publishing them on their WordPress blog.

Below, with permission from the author, we reproduce excerpted portions of the Forensicator’s latest report. Introduction In this report, Forensicator analyzes metadata left in the...

Assange Prosecution Will Focus On Chelsea Manning Era Releases, Not DNC Emails

Assange Prosecution Will Focus On Chelsea Manning Era Releases, Not DNC Emails It seems that the shades have finally been ripped off of the persecution of Julian Assange. Fallen by the wayside is the pretense used to justify his arbitrary detention: allegations of sexual misconduct, of Russian involvement, and of aiding Trump’s ascension to the Presidency. Gone is the pretense that it is not the rabid wolves of the US and UK military state baying, slavering for Assange’s blood. Former intelligence assets in the guise of “journalists” openly call for Assange’s arrest. Recent reports have indicated that formerly secret...
