Yesterday we brought you the story of how Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to bring indictments against Roger Stone and Julian Assange, and how Ecuador was making moves toward giving up Assange. Now it turns out Assange realizes just how much trouble he’s in, and he’s frantically trying to figure out how to save himself by selling out Stone and Donald Trump. No, really.
Roger Stone asked Randy Credico for help in getting Assange and WikiLeaks to supply him with stolen emails relating to HIllary Clinton, according to emails released yesterday by the Wall Street Journal. Stone was clearly looking to use these emails to alter the outcome of the election, meaning he committed espionage. If it can be demonstrated that Stone was doing this with Donald Trump’s knowledge, it’ll tie Trump to espionage as well. Immediately after this story surfaced, CNN reported that Ecuador is looking to rid itself of Assange. Now Assange is trying to get into the game.
Randy Credico announced on cable news this afternoon that Julian Assange is willing to speak with Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, about the scandal. This is notable in that Assange isn’t looking to speak with Trump’s Republican puppets on the committee, but instead with the Democrat.
We don’t know why Julian Assange is offering to speak to Adam Schiff instead of Robert Mueller, but Assange knows full well that Schiff and Mueller are playing for the same team. Assange is trying to sell out Roger Stone, and by extension Donald Trump, before Ecuador agrees to extradite Assange to the United States so Mueller can put him on trial. Assange is not to be trusted, based on his dishonest track record. But it’s clear that he worries he’s going down, and he’s trying to saddle up with those trying to take Trump down. Stay tuned.
