Assange Allegedly Was Directly Involvement with Hacking of Data

It’s been seven years since Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, first came under the watchful eye of the Department of Justice. After collaborating with former U.S. Army intelligence analyst, Chelsea Manning, to publish thousands of stolen files, officials have been trying to find a way to apprehend Assange without violating his first amendment rights. But now, officials say that they have evidence of his direct involvement with interference in the 2016 election, actively assisting Edward Snowden and direction of Chelsea Manning.  Assange has always maintained that he only posted government data that others have stolen.


Assange, who is said to be currently avoiding rape charges in Sweden, is hosted by the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. American officials had high hopes that a change in the Ecuadorian government would lead to Assange’s “eviction,” as it were, but the new president of Ecuador stands firm on their decision to harbor Assange.


The problem with placing charges on Assange has always been that his site is not the only publication to share government secrets. In America, publications have the right to educate Americans on all manner of topics, even if they aren’t presenting the government in the best of lights. But, Assange may have gone too far.


CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, states that Assange guided Chelsea Manning so that she intercepted specific information, information that was pertinent to the United States. Pompeo also declares that Assange worked with Russian intelligence to disrupt the 2016 election with the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
