It is beginning to look as though Julian Assange won’t be dropping a house on Hillary after all. The leftist Ecuadorian government has admitted that it has cut off internet access to the Wikileaks founder for an undisclosed period of time. The move came after reports that Secretary of State John “Skull and Bones” Kerry had threatened Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa with ‘grave consequences’ if the data dumps on Democrat dirty dealings didn’t stop immediately.
If true, it would be a troubling move for a former Democrat presidential nominee to assert himself in such a manner so as to use the power of his office to bolster his own party’s chances in an election.
According to the Associated Press “Ecuador: We have ‘temporarily restricted’ Assange’s internet”:
Ecuador’s government has acknowledged that it has “temporarily restricted” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s internet access at its embassy in London after the whistleblowing site published documents from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign
The foreign ministry in a statement Tuesday said that while it stands by its decision in 2012 to grant Assange asylum, it doesn’t interfere in foreign elections. Leftist President Rafael Correa’s government said it was acting on its own and not ceding to foreign pressures.
The foreign ministry didn’t specify the extent of the restrictions on Assange’s access to the internet, saying only that the restrictions on his communications wouldn’t affect WikiLeaks’ ability to carry out its journalistic activities.
Assange should probably consider himself lucky that it was only his internet access that got cut off and not his balls. That however may only be a temporary respite because if Hillary is able to stave off the Trump insurgency there will be no where to turn for the doomed hacktivist. Hell has no fury like a woman scorned and Hillary would take office with the mother of all axes to grind.
Assange is going to come to regret dicking around and not releasing everything right away come next year when he is at some CIA black site being tortured into confessing that Putin made him do it all.
