Feds will CHARGE founder Julian Assange seven
years after his site first started publishing
classified information

Daily Mail (UK) & Reuters, by Ariel Zilber & Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/20/2017 9:29:11 PM

The US government is laying the groundwork for criminal charges to be filed against WikiLeaks founder Jullian Assange, CNN is reporting on Thursday. Assange has been on the American government´s radar since 2010, when his organization published thousands of classified documents stolen by former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning. In August 2013, a military tribunal sentenced Manning to 35 years in prison. That sentence was commuted earlier this year by then-President Barack Obama. Manning is due for release next month. WikiLeaks bills itself as an international organization that publishes secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources.

While I understand the need to do this, I think there are higher priorities/candidates who should be dealt with first.
Like Anthony Weiner and the laptop? How about the IC and their illegal and unethical activities?

Compared to what is on deck right now, Assange just doesn´t seem like he should be first.

Good luck with that one. Once classified information is leaked, it becomes public domain.

I firmly believe that if the Feds file charges, it´s solely revenge for letting the public know how utterly corrupt the federal goobermint actually is.

Con´t. Besides, if Assange can be prosecuted, then why can´t the Butcher be prosecuted? Double standard, anyone?

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) talked with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Thursday regarding his experience at the GOP baseball practice where Rep. Steve Scalise was shot. DeSantis said while Rep. Scalise “is fighting for his life, I think he’s going to pull through.” After describing his interactions with the alleged shooter, DeSantis said, “We received a message expressing approval of what had happened and just hoping that Donald Trump would be next.

WASHINGTON— The Latest on the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (all times EDT): 8:30 p.m. The hospital where Rep. Steve Scalise is recuperating from a gunshot wound says he “remains in critical condition, but has improved in the last 24 hours.” MedStar Washington Hospital Center says Scalise underwent surgery Thursday related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg. The hospital says the Louisiana congressman “will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time.” Scalise was wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia on Wednesday.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi expressed outrage at her Republican colleagues Thursday for implying that Wednesday’s shooting could make for good campaign ads in 2018. “I think the comments made by my Republican colleagues is outrageous,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, said at her weekly briefing. She said Republicans acting as if they are not contributors to the problem is ridiculous. “This sick individual does something despicable and it was horrible what he did — but for them to all of a sudden be sanctimonious as if they’d never seen such a thing before — I don’t even want to go

FOX News legal expert Gregg Jarrett suggested today Robert Mueller should disqualify himself from special counsel due to his relationship with James Comey. The special counsel could not find any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia so now they are going for obstruction of justice charges according to the latest deep state leads to the liberal media. Donald Trump responded tonight to this ongoing witch hunt. He asked about Hillary’s crooked dealings with Russia. (Tweet) And Hillary Clinton’s obstruction of justice.

Vice President Mike Pence has hired Richard Cullen, an attorney from Richmond, Va., to work with the congressional committees and special counsel on their investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 election, according to a report Thursday. "I can confirm that the Vice President has retained Richard Cullen of McGuire Woods to assist him in responding to inquiries by the special counsel," Jarrod Agen, a spokesman for Pence, said in a statement to the Washington Post.

President Trump resurrected one of his most brutal and repeated attacks from the 2016 campaign, blasting ´crooked´ Hillary Clinton less than 24 hours after calling for national unity after the congressional baseball shooting. Trump slammed his former political rival in a series of tweets Thursday afternoon. ´Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ´bleached´ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?´ Trump asked, combining his attacks on Clinton with gripes about the evolving Russia investigation. The tweet revived two attacks from the 2016 campaign, that a Clinton aide destroyed some of her

Wednesday´s case of ballpark violence (you and I know it was another form of domestic terrorism, but we can also be pretty sure that the Obama regime would have called it ballpark violence) would surely have been far, far worse but for the presence and heroic actions (and training and discipline – more on that in a minute) of the two Capitol Police officers who were detailed to provide security for House whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.). There´s a racial angle to this, and it´s one that the left and its media lackeys, usually all too eager to find and

Republican Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and two Capitol Police were shot during baseball practice on Wednesday morning. Scalise was shot in the hip and tried to drag himself off the field after he was shot. The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson was a Bernie supporter who was obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. He is now dead. The New York Times tipped off the GOP shooter on the GOP baseball practice field in an April article.

LANCASTER, N.Y.- At many American high schools, the graduation-day tradition of crowning a valedictorian is becoming a thing of the past. The ranking of students from No. 1 on down, based on grade-point averages, has been fading steadily for about the past decade. In its place are honors that recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold - using Latin honors, for example. This year, one school in Tennessee had 48 valedictorians. About half of schools no longer report class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Administrators worry about the college prospects of students separated by

HuffPo Pulls Article Calling For
‘Ultimate Punishment’ Of Trump

The Huffington Post pulled a piece calling for the “execution” of President Donald Trump published Saturday by contributor Jason Fuller. Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S. Fuller’s “ultimate punishment” is not only reserved for

As Fox News moves further into the post–Roger Ailes era, the network is shedding one of its most iconic elements. According to network executives, Fox News has abandoned the marketing slogan “Fair & Balanced.” The decision was made last August after Ailes’s ouster by Fox News co-president Jack Abernethy, because the phrase had “been mocked,” one insider said. Another executive explained that the tagline was “too closely associated with Roger.” Fox executives have been instructed by management to market the network by its other tagline: “Most Watched. Most Trusted.” It is hard to overstate the significance of what shedding “Fair

Brooks said Scalise was shot in the hip and was "dragging his body" to get away from the shooter. “My heart is heavy right now,” Rep.

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said. The move by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s own conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been

Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice in the probe of Russian interference in last year´s presidential election, according to a story by The Washington Post. ABC News has not independently confirmed the report, which cites U.S. officials. Reached by ABC News, special counsel spokesman Peter Carr offered no comment. In response to the story, a spokesman for Trump´s attorney Marc Kasowitz issued a statement only addressing what he referred to as a "leak" from the FBI. “The FBI leak of information regarding the President is

Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy. If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people. The equivalent of the population of Pennsylvania (and then some!) does not know that chocolate milk is milk, cocoa and sugar. But while the survey has attracted snorts and jeers from some corners — “um, guys, [milk] comes from cows — and not just the brown kind,” snarked Food & Wine — the most surprising thing about this figure may

According to a Washington Post report, based on two more unnamed “officials”, special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Donald Trump for ‘obstruction of justice’ presumably based on the firing of FBI Director James Comey. This report/outcome is not unexpected as it would be part of Mueller’s investigative duty to follow-up on any assertions made in this regard regardless of merit.(Washington Post) […] Trump had received private assurances from former FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing. Five people briefed on the requests, who spoke on

It did not take long for journalists on Twitter to start politicizing the Alexandria shooting that targeted a group of Republican Congressmen on Tuesday, as Atlantic Editor David Frum was quick to make a gun control argument. “There was a terrible fire in London.. Would any British person say in the aftermath ‘this is not the time to discuss fire safety?” said Frum in a tweet, just more than an hour after the news of the shooting broke. John Podhoretz, the editor of Commentary Magazine, admonished Frum in a responding tweet. “Seriously, David, wait an hour before you start wagging
