Julian Assange made waves when his website Wikileaks released DNC emails exploring establishment corruption in the Democratic Party. He has now promised to release even more emails that are damning in regards to the Clinton Foundation. A plethora of high profile Democrats feel it could lead to a so called “October surprise” for the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Assange has continued to insist more emails are to come to be released prior to Election Day. He is now giving hints as to what those emails contain. Specifically, the reported ties of Hillary Clinton and the country of Saudi Arabia.
“Saudi Arabia is probably the largest single donor to the Clinton Foundation, and you can see Clinton’s arms export policies when she was a secretary of state favoring extensively Saudi Arabia.”
He insinuated Clinton attacks Donald Trump over his ties with Russia in order to hide and conceal her very own Russian ties.
“There is a much deeper connection on record with Hillary Clinton and Russia than we are presently aware of with Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton did quite well strategically to draw a connection between Trump and Russia because she has so many connections of her own.”
Reporters have prophesied that these email releases could swing the election in favor of Trump. But it could even give Gary Johnson, a rising Libertarian presidential candidate, the momentum to get close to winning. Even if he lost it would make it an extremely tight race.
A long time Democratic operative Jim Manley said,.
“We may be headed into uncharted waters, and this has the potential to spiral out of control.”
Many have called Assange’s actions treasonous and dangerous, while others hail him a hero similar to Edward Snowden who have kept citizens safer by allowing us to know what is really going on.
