Julian Assange—the True Hero of 2016

The moment I learned FBI Director James Comey had let Hillary Clinton off from her email scandal a second time, I thought of the following interchange between WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange and interviewer John Pilger published only one day before:

JP: You get complaints from people saying, ‘What is WikiLeaks doing?  Are they trying to put Trump in the Whitehouse?

JA: My answer is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that?  Because he’s had every establishment off his side; Trump doesn’t have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment, but banks, intelligence [agencies], arms companies… big foreign money … are all united behind Hillary Clinton, and the media as well, media owners and even journalists themselves.
