WikiLeaks’ D.C. Lawyers Letter to Attorney General

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says the Department of Justice (DOJ) has set a new standard for its investigations with its probe of Hillary Clinton.

“Our D.C. lawyers are delivering a letter tomorrow to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking her to explain why it is that the now six-year-long national security and criminal investigation being run against WikiLeaks, the reason I have political asylum, has not been closed,” he said on CNN’s “The Lead” Monday.

“Because the DOJ, whose actions seem to be setting a new standard by closing the Hillary Clinton case,” Assange added. “The Hillary Clinton case has only gone for one year”.  (This of course is not true)

“Hillary Clinton’s case has been dropped, the case against WikiLeaks continues. So why is it that the quote, ‘pending law enforcement proceedings’ against WikiLeaks continue? There’s a problem here.”

Assange associated the DOJ’s investigation of his organization with the agency’s probe of Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.

“It was closed under the basis that [FBI Director] James Comey said that they couldn’t establish that there was an intent to damage national security,” he said of the DOJ’s probe of Clinton. “In our case, there’s no allegation that we have done anything except publish information for the public. (Stolen information or documents)

“The U.S. government had to say under oath in 2013 not a single person has been physically harmed by our publication. You don’t have intent. You don’t have serious harm.”

WikiLeaks published a trove of 20,000 DNC emails in late July covering the period from last January to late May.

Assange insisted earlier this month his organization’s publishing of the communications was not intended to undermine Clinton’s campaign.

Assange tweeted last night that the 3 part of election documents will be release this week.  How can he beg for a pardon or closure while continuing the activity that is destroying United States image in the world.

Cybercrimes are the new frontier of criminal activity and the United States needs to develop new ways of stopping this.  Whether it is credit card numbers, disruption of larges business websites, or stealing emails and documents from the government, they are all wrong.  These crimes are as bad as breaking into a person’s home or office and stealing files or personal items.
