Trump’s CIA Discussed Assassinating Julian Assange

They decided to just torture him to death instead.

The Guardian:

Senior CIA officials during the Trump administration discussed abducting and even assassinating WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, according to a US report citing former officials.

The discussions on kidnapping or killing Assange took place in 2017, Yahoo News reported, when the fugitive Australian activist was entering his fifth year sheltering in the Ecuadorian embassy. The then CIA director, Mike Pompeo, and his top officials were furious about WikiLeaks’ publication of “Vault 7”, a set of CIA hacking tools, a breach which the agency deemed to be the biggest data loss in its history.

Pompeo and the CIA leadership “were completely detached from reality because they were so embarrassed about Vault 7”, Yahoo cites a former Trump national security official as saying. “They were seeing blood.”

Some senior officials inside the CIA and the Trump administration went as far as to request “sketches” or “options” for killing Assange. “There seemed to be no boundaries,” a former senior counterterrorist official was quoted as saying.

The CIA declined to comment.

Assuming this is true (it might be), I’m not going to blame Trump for this specifically, as the liberals are (despite the fact that the liberals would presumably support assassinating Julian Assange).

This is just another example of how incapable Trump was of controlling the intelligence agencies.

Of course, America is not run by the president. So you could only expect so much.

Remember in 2017, before Trump’s inauguration, when the Jew Chuck Schumer told the Jew Rachel Maddow that Trump would soon find out that the US government is actually run by the CIA and they would punish him for going against them?

Kinda weird to say that out loud, I guess. But apparently it isn’t weird, because no one cares.
