    WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange suggested that the Democratic National Committee staffer shot dead last month in Washington, DC, was killed because he was a “source.”

    “Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” he told Dutch TV, referring to Seth Rich, who was gunned down in the early morning hours of July 10 while walking to his apartment in Bloomingdale.

    The interviewer followed up by asking, “That was just a robbery, I believe. Wasn’t it?”

    The WikiLeaks founder cryptically replied, “No, there’s no finding … I’m suggesting that our sources take risks.”

    WikiLeaks recently released a trove of stolen emails from top-level staffers at the Democratic National Committee. The revelations in the emails led to resignations of the chair of the DNC, as well as top staff members.

    In the interview, Assange refused to confirm Rich was a source.

    “Why make the suggestion about a young guy being shot in the streets of Washington?” the interviewer asked.

    “Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States,” the WikiLeaks founder replied. “Our sources face serious risks. That’s why they come to us. So we can protect their anonymity.”

    Anyone says "me thinks" deserves to be second amended...

    Assange is a vain, self-aggrandizing liar, who has finally jumped the shark with this "hint". Behind the "objective info-warrior" mask, he's clearly biased toward Trump and against Clinton.

    WikiLeaks walks back Assange claim on hacking Trump tax returns

    WikiLeaks on Saturday walked back a claim made by its founder, Julian Assange, that it was "working on" obtaining Donald Trump's undisclosed tax returns.

    "Why don't you hack into Donald Trump's tax return?" Maher asked.

    "Well, we're working on it," responded Assange, who did not provide further information.

    But a message from WikiLeaks' official Twitter account Saturday morning dismissed Assange's statement, claiming it was meant in jest.

    "WikiLeaks isn't 'working on' hacking Trump's tax-returns. Claim is a joke from a comedy show."

    Given that WikiLeaks, the Kremlin and Trump seem to have a common purpose here, what's to stop hackers salting the files they release with plausible forgeries? The Russians are probably a lot better at producing credible forgeries than American conservatives are - if Clinton's "recently discovered medical report" and Mr Khan's "bank statement" are anything to go by.

    If you compare the reported net worth of Bernie a few months ago with his recent house purchase the question comes up if Bernie was bought off. From the Clinton Crime Family Foundation that would be just petty cash. Maybe Bernie is not so pure as many thought.
