Will the DOJ Press Charges Against Julian Assange and WikiLeaks?

Officials within the DOJ have started to draft “a memo that contemplates charges against members of the WikiLeaks organization, possibly including conspiracy, theft of government property or violating the Espionage Act.” However, those at the top of the DOJ will need to sign off on any charges against WikiLeaks like Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    So much for Drain the Swamp! and Lock her Up! Instead of anything happening to the criminals exposed by Wikileaks, the government is going to go after the messenger. We elected Trump to do something about those bastards, and instead he turned right around and went after Wikileaks, which even Obama didn’t do. This must be the world record political flip-flop of all time.

      He has betrayed his base.

    Well, it looks like “We The People” of the USA will have to content themselves with a few crumbs of freedom thrown their way by the globalists, instead of what I had hoped for, which was a Trump-led derailment of the globalist juggernaut.

      This hurts way more than if Clinton had done it because of our high expectations – and they were reasonable, given what he had consistently pledged throughout his election campaign. Very discouraging. Are the progressive forces of corruption so powerful and entrenched that no one can stand up to them now? It’s looking like that.

    The ultra left /regressives luv to provoke all citizens and since Wikileaks did a good job of exposing Shrillery, Assange and Wikileaks should be pardoned of any wrongdoing .. A sort of in-yer-face move towards demoncrats.

    I think the publication of the CIA’s inner workings (unrelated to Hillary) was the straw that broke the Justice Department’s back. If Assange had left well enough alone, he would be in much better shape.
