It’s in the news. Tonight at 3am ET (otherwise known as tomorrow morning), Julian Assange will be releasing a litany of damning evidence against Hillary Clinton – potentially destroying her campaign in the process. Earlier in the year, Assange was responsible for releasing the emails which devastated the DNC, and led to the ouster of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Hillary’s impending implosion as a viable candidate should come as no surprise. Anyone as corrupt as her eventually gets caught red-handed – it’s a mathematical certainty. It is likely these documents will be the big “October surprise” Republicans have been waiting for. That said, the bigger question is, what will the ramifications for Julian Assange be?
Hillary already threatened to murder Mr. Assange using drone strikes back in 2010 – obviously aware of the threat he posed to her political future even back then. It’s also becoming increasingly obvious that Clinton, or at least someone supporting Clinton, murdered supposed DNC leaker Seth Rich back in July. The DNC staffer was shot and killed in cold blood, and all of his possessions including his wallet, credit cards and cellphone were left with him. This is a real life house of cards people. It’s highly likely we have a major political candidate running for office who has aggressively and blatantly murdered young, innocent people who have opposed her in one form or another, perhaps going back decades.
Instead of asking whether or not Assange’s leak will be detrimental to Hillary – that much is obvious – we should be asking how much longer Assange will remain alive and well in this sick world we now live in. It was just announced that WikiLeaks will be moving the announcement to Berlin due to “specific threats.” How much more evidence do we need before we start to see the forest for the trees?
I, for one, profoundly hope we don’t elect a serial killer to the office of President.
