Wiki's Julian Assange fires back

WikiLeaks founder and head leaker Julian Assange fired back at the U.S. intelligence community for reporting his anti-secrecy website was used by Russia to distribute hacked information from Democratic staffers during the presidential campaign season.

The blond wonder spoke during a Periscope Q&A session and claimed that his source of information was not a member "of any government" or "state parties" nor did the source "come from the Russian government." He said Friday's declassified intelligence report on "Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions on Recent US Elections" was inadequate and misleading.

"It was not an intelligence report," Assange said. "It does not have the structure of an intelligence report. It does not have the structure of a Presidential Daily Brief. It was frankly quite embarrassing."

How does Assange know how a Presidential Daily Brief is structured? Or an intelligence report, for that matter. 

That's the scary part.

He then added: "It was clearly designed for political effect."

As much as Assange is a detestable piece of rat excrement on the shoe of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi's sandal, I kind of believe him. The reason for this is because it has become so obvious how often the Obama administration has lied to us, it becomes almost impossible to believe anything they say, including "hello."

When Assange was asked if it's possible that WikiLeaks' source was a go-between affiliated with the Russian government, he answered saying he didn't want to "play twenty questions with our sources."

An answer filled with more questions.

The intelligence report was prepared at the direction of Lame Duck President Obama, with whom even going to a mens room can be a political act. He laid the blame for the breach of the Democratic officials' emails at the feet of Putin and the Russians, without mentioning the breathtaking stupidity of John Podesta and Hillary Clinton for the ways in which they failed to protect their emails. 

Podesta's password was 'password.' Clinton's server was in a toilet in Colorado. Do you know anything about what Colorado toilets are like? 

Seriously, how can you trust the judgment of either one of those clowns?

But the real irony is that our government knew about Russia's hacking for several years, but only now, with the election defeat of Hillary Clinton, the Obamatron, is our so-called president going after Russia with silly sanctions that make Vladimir's nipples hard.

The intelligence report stated: "We assess with high confidence that Russian military intelligence . . . relayed material to WikiLeaks."

That may or may not be true, but if the report said otherwise, I would bet that people in the intelligence community would be asking: "Do you want to supersize those fries?"

When asked if he believed the report was "fabricated" Assange said "Most of this so-called intelligence report is not even fabricated. That is, it does not even make assertions for the most part to rise to the level of fabrications . . . it uses speculative terms and admits its own speculation."

When it got down to the nitty-gritty, Assange said that he didn't think it mattered who gave WikiLeaks the information. "Even if you believe that hackers of some kind illicitly obtained the Podesta emails and the DNC emails we published . . . what are we talking about in terms of impact?" He then said, "What was discussed are the words of Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and her team revealing unethical practices, corruption, hypocrisy, etcetera."

Then Assange asked: "Should the American people have been denied that true information?"

And the truth shall set you free--unless you're a Democrat.
