WikiLeaks

Former Washington, D.C. Homicide Detective Rod Wheeler claims that the police had mentioned to him that they were ordered to cover up the actual details surrounding the cause off DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder.

The case concerning Seth Rich’s death was revived, as federal investigators confirmed that the Democratic National Committee staffer, who was murdered in 2016 had in fact been in contact with WikiLeaks.

Rich was shot dead in Washington, D.C., in July and the police had ruled the murder as a botched robbery, even though, nothing was stolen. The story surrounding Rich’s death received very little attention from the media, all until WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange implied that Rich was a source for the hacking group.

Rod Wheeler alleged on Monday that the true reasons surrounding the killing were covered by the police. “I have a source inside the police department that has looked at me straight in the eye and said, ‘Rod, we were told to stand down on this case and I can’t share any information with you.’” Wheeler said.

“Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department. Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out [Tuesday],” he added.

Wheeler also went on to state that his sources had mentioned that Rich had contacted WikiLeaks and that there is evidence backing the claim.

“The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” Wheeler explained. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

According a source, Rich transferred 44,053 emails sent between DNC officials to Gavin MacFadyen, a now deceased filmmaker and WikiLeaks director. Some conspiracy theories claim that Rich was murdered as he was transferring information from the DNC to WikiLeaks, however, up until Wheeler’s alleged claims, there haven’t been any publicly confirmed evidence to back the theories.

Following Rich’s death, WikiLeaks was noted issuing a statement, where they neither confirmed nor denied Rich’s link with them. Their statement read, “As a matter of policy we do not confirm or deny whether any person has ever been a source for WikiLeaks. We treat threats toward any suspected source of WikiLeaks with extreme gravity. This should not be taken to imply that Seth Rich was a source to WikiLeaks or to imply that his murder is connected to our publications. We hope our efforts will contribute to the family’s calls for information and to the separate reward issued by the police.”

In his Senate Committee hearing on Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey stated that WikiLeaks is no less than “intelligence porn” intended only to harm the United States.

Comey called WikiLeaks as an illegitimate and a corrupting news outlet. Comey made his statement when Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) requested him to explain why he does not consider the site; published by Julian Assange as a credible news outlet.

“To my mind it crosses a line when it moves from being about trying to educate a public and instead just becomes about intelligence porn, frankly — just pushing out information … without regard to the First Amendment values that normally underly press reporting, and simply becomes a conduit for the Russian intelligence services.”

Comey said that he very “deeply” cares about press freedom and believes that WikiLeaks pushes out “information to damage the United States.”

“Reasonable people can struggle to draw a line” between Wikileaks and real journalism, “but there’s nothing that even smells journalistic,” Comey told Sasse.

Comey even went on to say, “a huge portion of WikiLeaks has nothing to do with legitimate news gathering and is simply about releasing classified information to damage the United States.”

“American journalists do not do that,” he said.

Assange on the other hand, took matters to Twitter and tweeted, “James Comey just mislead the Senate while under oath when said Wikileaks ‘doesn’t call us’. We did over #Vault7 and I know he knows it.”

WikiLeaks reached their fame during the 2016 presidential election, more importantly when it published the emails hacked from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the emails from John Podesta, when he was actively serving as the chairman of the Hillary CIinton’s campaign.

The news source had recently leaked CIA hacking tools, which lead to their one time supporter Mike Pompeo to turn against them. “WikiLeaks walks like a foreign intelligence agency and talks like a foreign intelligence agency,” Pompeo said.

Hillary Clinton has been quiet since her devastating loss back in November, but some are saying that her political career is not done.

There have been rumors that Hillary might run for Mayor of New York City, rumors the Clinton camp hasn’t officially silenced. A Hillary Clinton insider told the New York Post that Hillary is “50-50” on running for mayor of New York.

Hillary may not want to get out of politics yet, but what does the DNC think about that?

The DNC could be for the run since they have yet to apologize to the millions of Bernie Sanders fans that feel cheated by the Democratic National Committee from the information found in the DNC WikiLeaks.

The Party marginalized Bernie’s supporters in 2016 when it worked behind the scenes to support Hillary and torpedo Bernie. There are millions of Democrats that are still upset that Bernie didn’t the nomination.

Even with the shocking defeat on election day, the DNC doesn’t seem to be changing it’s course and neither does Hillary.

When Mitt Romney lost to Barrack Obama, he didn’t take to Twitter to throw jabs at the president. Neither did John McCain. Normally, when a candidate losses in a big election they remain quiet and resist the urge to take shots at their former rival. That is not the case for the latest Democrat candidate who might be eyeing a Hillary 2020 run.

When Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven countries in the Middle East and Africa lost for a third time in court last week, Hillary took to Twitter to throw a jab. Some would call this trolling.

Is Hillary even out of campaign mode? Is she just taking a shot, or does she still have ambitions to square off with Donald one more time in 2020?

Politico and Huffington Post both published articles over the weekend that had Hillary 2020 in the title, and offered up reasons why they think Hillary could be contemplating another run.

Hillary, after all, never said in her concession speech that she would not run again. She left it open. If she ran again, she would be 73 years old, and in all fairness, Bernie was 74 when he ran this past year.

Hillary may have a desire to get back into politics, but is it a good idea? Hillary lost to Barrack Obama and to Trump. Two very different candidates handed Hillary two unexpected losses. She went into both elections as the clear favorite, but it never worked out. Maybe what she needs is to be the underdog, which she would most certainly be if she decided to run again. Or maybe the Democrats need to find a new winning solution that doesn’t include Hillary.

Do you think Hillary should run in 2020? Let us know in the comments below.

A week after President Obama expelled Russian diplomats from the United States over alleged, yet unproven hacking of John Podesta’s email account, Maryland Democrat Sen. Ben Cardin is pushing for sanctions against the former Soviet Union.

Cardin, who is the leading Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relation’s Committee is pushing for sanctions due to Russia’s meddling in the Ukraine and their support for the Assad regime in Syria.

Arguably, the Kremlin, led by Vladimir Putin has engaged in the same level of meddling in foreign affairs as the United States in recent years as neither nation has developed an understanding of Jeffersonian, non-interventionist policies.

Cardin’s proposal will be a “comprehensive bill that will provide congressional authorization for additional sanctions against Russia.”

A recent commenter on Liberty News Now explained that “all intelligence agencies agree, and that never happens!”

It has happened in the past during the lead up to the war and Iraq and the false and persistent claims that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction.

Last week, President Obama expelled Russian diplomats on 72-hour notice and within the last 48 hours, has deployed special forces troops to the Russian border.

Barack Obama’s main excuse for his behavior is the agreement of U.S. intelligence agencies in their assessment that the Kremlin “hacked” the Presidential Elections.

No proof has been made public to support the claim.

The main individual releasing the hacked data throughout the election was former hacker Julian Assange through the organization, WikiLeaks.

Assange has stated on numerous occasions that the source of the leaks emails from John Podesta’s gmail account were not from Russian sources.

President Elect Trump repeated those words in a tweet this morning saying:

The President Elect was scheduled to receive a security briefing to explain the alleged hacking on Wednesday, however, intelligence officials have delayed the briefing until Friday, setting off Donald Trump once again:

Vladimir Putin, the President of the Russian Federation, has refused to retaliate against the actions of Barack Obama, however, that was before the lame duck president deployed troops to the area, escalating tensions.

U.S. Officials are reporting that 35 Russian diplomats have been given 72 hour notice that they are expelled from the United States.

Early reports show that the Russian diplomats were located in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, New York and Maryland.

Two diplomatic “compounds” were also said to be “shut down” in New York and Maryland.

The expulsion comes on the heels of President Obama’s promise to take action for alleged Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential election.

While the Obama Administration and his CIA reported that they have proof of hacking by the Russian government, no evidence has been released to the public.

As with many government operations, the public has been left to trust the reports of the Obama administration with no evidence.

According to the Russian government, the Russian Federation maintains Consular Offices in five cities around the United States: New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Seattle and Houston, Texas.

The Russian Consular Office in Houston was contacted to inquire if that office has been shut down as well and no response has been received as of this report.

Has Julian Assange gone missing after the 2016 Election

Ever since Julian Assange’s Internet was cut over a month ago, rumors started flying that he was taken, abducted, or worse.

During the month of October, WikiLeaks was the most used term in the media. The releases of the Podesta, Hillary and the DNC emails were earth shattering to the Clinton campaign and arguably contributed to her loss.

In late October, Assange’s Internet was cut in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, but did something else happen to him?

At the time, many loyal supporters thought he was taken and WikiLeaks was compromised, but now, weeks after the election, more and more people are starting to think that might be the case.

It is true that all the interviews and videos of Assange that have been seen over the last month were all pre-recorded and none talked about current events.

Groups like Anonymous and Infowars are assuming the worst.

See the video below from an Anonymous YouTube channel that provides the details surrounding this unusual case.

If something has happened to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, there is no evidence to prove it just yet.

Is it as extreme as Alex Jones claims or is Assange just taking some time away from the media and enjoying being disconnected with the Internet.

Now even WikiLeaks has asked the public to stop asking for proof of life.

There is simply not enough information to know what has happened to Julian.

The Ecuadorian embassy could end the speculation by giving Assange his Internet right back or letting him come to his window.

There is more to this story, and as information that can be verified comes out, we will let you know.

The most used term online when discussing politics in October was the word WikiLeaks, but now the election is over, they’re far from done.

WikiLeaks was on the side of truth during the election, but that also benefited Donald Trump.

Now that Trump has won, thanks to Assange and his team constantly releasing damming emails from Hillary’s campaign, what can we expect next?

With a coming Trump presidency, it looks like Assange’s freedom could be restored.

On Monday, Sweedish officials are interviewing Assange in London, and taking his statement on the alleged crimes. Swedish officials have not given Assange the opportunity to give a statement in six years. Finally they are listening.

A live feed was available from outside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London where Assange has been living for the last four years.

A large crowd gathered outside the embassy and held signs that said FREE ASSANGE.

Julian Assange has become a “people’s” hero for releasing private documents from politicians and exposing corruption.

World leaders think of him a little differently.

Right now Trump is thanking his lucky stars for Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, but that could be different if WikiLeaks receives emails on Trump.

Thankfully WikiLeaks is not beholden to any party, just the truth and that is something we need in journalism.

Do you think authorities should release Julian Assange? Let us know in the comments below.

"Hillary Clinton" by Tim Pierce (licensed CC-BY-2.0)

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, had an interview where he spoke about the sources for Hillary’s emails and it isn’t Russia.

Hillary stood on the Debate stage and told the world that “17 intelligence agencies” have concluded that Russia is to blame for the hacks that has sent her campaign into a tailspin this year.

Every Democrat deflects the WikiLeaks questions by saying that Russia stole the information, but that doesn’t seem to be true.

The official statement from the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have stated that Russia is the culprit, but are they?

Read the statement below and see that there is no evidence at all to confirm Russia’s involvement. The statement says that the methods of the hacking were “consistent” with Russian methods, but nothing concrete.

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”

Not only did the intelligence agencies not confirm Russia’s involvement, they blamed Russia for something they may not be involved in.

If we listen to Julian Assange in his most recent interview, he says that Russia is not the source.

If Russia isn’t the source, then who is?

We don’t know for sure, but there are a lot of people who are saying that Seth Rich, the DNC staffer killed while walking home in DC is most likely the one who leaked the emails.

Lobbyists, WikiLeaks and others have offered a cash reward to information on Seth Rich’s death. The donated rewards are over $140,000 now. Some people believe that Seth Rich is the one that leaked it and they are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

The one thing we do know is that Russia has denied any involvement and we don’t have any evidence that they are to blame.

Democrats have done a good job in deflecting and trying to downplay the credibility of WikiLeaks, but the truth will come out. Unfortunately we won’t know until after this election.

Emails, emails, emails… all we’ve heard about for over a year is Hillary’s emails, but now there is a easy way to read what is important.

WikiLeaks has released thousands of emails, and up until now all you could do was search through them by keyword and date and read them one by one.

Now there is a way that you can read the email for yourself and make up your own mind.

Hillary’s campaign Chairman John Podesta had his emails hacked and they have been leaked in 28 batches, almost one a day for a month.

The emails now have been displayed on Vaskal with headings and a brief explanation of the key emails.

There are literally hundreds of important and newsworthy emails but this page focuses on the top 100 or so.

If you have ever wanted to read the WikiLeaks emails, but were intimidated by the daunting task of searching through the thousands of emails to find relevant ones, then there is now a solution.

Click here to read the most important emails from the Podesta files.

If you don’t know much about WikiLeaks, this is a good video to understand how they grew to be one of the most influential organizations during this election.

WikiLeaks and Julian Assange offer a service to our country that isn’t provided by our media. That is evident in the corporate media’s attempts to discredit Assange and his releases.

It must also be mentioned that in over 10 years, WikiLeaks has not released any false documents.
