Below is the somewhat bizarre presser that CIA director Mike Pompeo gave two weeks ago regarding Wikileaks That Ron Paul is discussing with Assange . He invented a new buzz-phrase to be bandied about by the government & state run media – “non state intelligence service”. Perhaps someone should show him a copy of the U.S. Constitution before his next public temper tantrum. Engaging in a bunch of shady, illegal, activity against American’s and then calling it “classified intelligence” to cover up what they were really doing is just plain dirty. What Wikileaks exposed is that the CIA has rigged up just about every electronic device, software app, and phone American’s use, all in the name of “catching terrorists”. So they needed to do that to hack the terrorists in caves in Afghanistan? Perhaps the savages in Iraq & Syria will get busted by hacking their Samsung Flatscreen TV camera. I hear they love watching “Dancing with Stars” while they plot the next plane hijacking. They needed the software to leave electronic footprints that make it look like the “Russians did it” because why exactly? What was that you were doing in Sheryl Attkisson’s computers again? Spying on Angela Merkel kept us safe how exactly?
These are the same tools they used to illegally spy on Trump, his family, and his campaign team.
Unless they can prove Assange stole or hacked the info he exposed they have no right to prosecute him without violating the First Amendment. Considering that Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy for the last 5 years it’s painfully obvious that he is NOT the one leaking CIA info. It’s also clear that they have Assange, his phone, internet connection, and the embassy under total surveillance. They know it and he knows it. Are we dumb enough to think his sources are dropping the leaks off to him there & he’s posting it on the internet from the embassy? Please. If he were doing it from there, they would be raiding & hacking his laptop just like they did to Sheryl Attkisson. They shut off the internet connection at the embassy & a Wikileaks release came out during that time. Total fail. Someone is giving leaks to Wikileaks reporters and they are posting it. That’s what National Security Journalists do. Like it or not.
If they get away with arresting Assange for this, they will just label anything they don’t want said or published as “classified” and prosecute anyone whenever they please. This is basically a giant illegal wiretapping operation when they use it on Americans – which we now KNOW they have been doing. They’ve proven that the government can’t be trusted with this kind of technology. They will use it for political purposes and for evil.
It’s time for a bunch of rogue spy’s to go to jail for a very long time.
Yeah… Don’t try to fix by claiming the CIA defends the Constitution. We know nothing could be further from the truth. If someone in your out of control agency leaked it to a reporter, that’s your problem Pompeo. If they weren’t doing this nonsense it wouldn’t have happened. Clean up your act over there. We realize this was on Obama’s watch – so clean the rats out of the agency on your watch. The American people sure would appreciate it.
Is it time for Congress to reign in these wiretapping hooligans? Should Trump have the DOJ investigate exactly who ordered & carried out the surveillance on him and the others? Should he have all of them fired & prosecuted? Should we demand they destroy the entire database of American’s information that they’ve illegally scooped up?
