Is Julian Assange Being Falsly Imprissoned?

Post by Kulaf » Mon May 11, 2020 6:23 pm

Julian Assange has consistently maintained that the source of the leaked DNC emails was not Russian hackers. In fact, he intimated that a murdered DNC staffer was the leaker:

Now it has broke in a declassified transcript that CrowdStrike, the company hired by the DNC to provide cybersecurity on their servers during the "hack" gave testimony that there was NO evidence to suggest that the hackers transferred any information out of CrowdStrike protected systems:

There has been consistent speculation in the IT community that the logs of the server and the rate that data had been accessed indicated a flash device was used to compromise the email data.

This newly declassified transcript seems to lend greater weight to that theory, and that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was in fact Assange's source.

Umm... Assange is being extradited for assisting Chelsea Manning in exfiltrating embassy cables (ie providing technical assistance, not just being a recipient of the information). The charges have nothing to do with the DNC hack.

Right now he's in prison for breaking bail.

Sure he is. The US opens a criminal investigation on him and the same month Sweden issues an international arrest warrant over a an investigation where he was never formally charged:

It's all a BS attempt to get Assange into US custody and you can be damn sure he will face charges that are entirely false. It's an assault on the freedom of the Press.

Strongly disagree.

Assange did some dodgy dealing with a couple of women in Sweden. May have been criminal (in Sweden), may not. They issued an arrest warrant, but never charged him because they never got him in custody - he fled to the Ecuadorian embassy rather than face prosecution.

Sweden has significantly less ties to the US than the UK does, so his story about not wanting to go to Sweden to avoid US extradition makes no sense at all. He didn't want to go to Sweden to face the charges is the only logical summary.

After Ecuador got sick of him smelling up their embassy, the UK threw him in prison for breaking bail, which he definitely earned.

The US finally got around to deciding what to do, and say that he actively assisted Manning in exfiltrating information, which is illegal no matter whether you're reporting for Wikileaks, the NYT or Pravda. Valid reason for extradition, so he gets to face court in the US. US courts are relatively non-corrupt so I'd bank on a fair trial. If he didn't assist Manning and just acted as a recipient then he should walk away, maybe. I'm not sure of the legalities of a non-American receiving US classified information outside the US and distributing it.

Of course, my opinion is Assange is a raving sociopathic asshole who probably deserves misery and definitely doesn't deserve his self-serving showboating. But that's just an opinion. :)
