It is poetic justice that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange would also become the victim of leaks regarding things that he had transmitted on Twitter. It is no secret that Mr. Assange is no fan of Hillary Clinton. It is still enjoyable to see what he actually said and get a glimpse into his thought processes. This is a good read.
As Written and Reported By John Sexton for Hot Air:
A former Wikileaks volunteer has leaked private messages sent between Julian Assange and a group of his supporters to the Intercept. The messages, 11,000 in all, were sent privately on Twitter and stretch from mid-2015 to November 2017. The Intercept correctly points outthat a lot of the points Assange made privately to the group he also made publicly in various interviews.

Assange’s thinking appeared to be rooted not in ideological agreement with the right wing in the U.S., but in the tactical idea that a Republican president would face more resistance to an aggressive military posture than an interventionist President Hillary Clinton would.
A few more months into the primary season, after Super Tuesday, Assange decried the idea of Clinton in the “whitehouse with her bloodlutt and amitions of empire with hawkish liberal-interventionist appointees like [Anne-Marie] Slaughter and digital expansionists such as Google integrated into the power structure.
