Julian Assange AKA THE ALBINO ANTAGONIST appeared on The Sean Hannity Show yesterday.
I never believed this stuff about him being secretly dead. You’ll note I never really reported on that.
Granted this isn’t a video interview, but this would still be very hard to fake. Still, I wish it would have been video, just to prevent conspiracy theories. Although honestly, faking the video would be easier than faking this audio, so…
Funny to have Assange do his special “I’m alive” interview on Hannity. Hannity used to hate him.
My, how things have changed.
Anyway. It’s a good interview.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange denied Thursday that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors.
“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told “The Sean Hannity Show.”
“So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”
“That’s correct,” Assange responded.
Late Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Russian hackers had tried and failed to access the RNC using the same methods as the DNC hackers.
Assange had previously denied that the DNC and Podesta emails had came from any government. He has steadfastly refused to identify the source of the messages.
“We’re unhappy that we felt that we needed to even say that it wasn’t a state party. Normally, we say nothing at all,” Assange told Hannity. “We have … a strong interest in protecting our sources, and so we never say anything about them, never ruling anyone in or anyone out.
“And so here, in order to prevent a distraction attack against our publications, we’ve had to come out and say ‘no, it’s not a state party. Stop trying to distract in that way and pay attention to the content of the publication.’”
Assange added that the U.S. government, corporations and even private citizens are vulnerable to a cyberattack like the one on the DNC and Podesta.
“Everything is almost completely insecure now,” he said. “Computer systems have become so complex that it is not possible to understand all the parts, let alone secure them. It’s just impossible.”
That’s a very good point.
And a good thing.
All of these secrets are going to come out.
