Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report offers further evidence that Julian Assange is a Russian intelligence agent.
Two elements stand out here. First, referencing redacted intelligence material, volume one, page 42 of the report states “information about Assange’s computer and its possible operating system,” in relation to the Russian GU/GRU’s suspected transmission of seized John Podesta emails to Assange. This quote is in reference to Assange’s computer at the Ecuadorian embassy in London (where Assange took refuge between 2012-2019).
Then comes volume one, page 46 of the report, which notes that “The [Special Counsel] was able to identify when the GRU (operating through its personas Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks) transferred some of the stolen documents to WikiLeaks through online archives set up by the GRU. Assange had access to the internet from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, England.”
As shown in the screenshot below, the source for this information is also redacted, as is the associated footnote.
We can make two key conclusions as to what’s going on here.
First, that Assange was personally in contact with the GRU in receiving the mail material that the GRU had seized. Second, as with other elements of the Trump-Russia investigation, that the redactions are almost certainly in protection of Britain’s GCHQ (signal) or MI5 (domestic) intelligence services.
Yet, considering that Mueller’s report also details Assange’s repeated efforts to shield Russia as the sourcing agency for the hacked emails and notes Assange’s disgusting effort to suggest that the source was actually the innocent murder victim Seth Rich, we are left with a simple, sustaining question: As I asked last week, why wasn’t Assange charged as having conspired with Russian intelligence officers to illegally attack the U.S. election in 2016?
