The US establishment and media are working together to stop US Republican nominee Donald Trump to become the next American president, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in a special interview with John Pilger aired by RT.
In the second excerpt from the John Pilger Special, to be exclusively broadcast by RT on Saturday, Julian Assange accuses Hillary Clinton of misleading Americans about the true scope of Daesh’s support from Washington’s Middle East allies.
In a 2014 email made public by Assange’s WikiLeaks last month, Hillary Clinton, who had served as secretary of state until the year before, urges John Podesta, then an advisor to Barack Obama, to “bring pressure” on Qatar and Saudi Arabia, “which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to Daesh and other radical Sunni groups.”
The Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for four years already, expressed his support for Brexit, because the current UK government is using the EU to justify their own decisions.
Julian Assange, the founder of world-famous WikiLeaks website, said in his interview for ITV channel that he “pretty much” believes that the UK should vote to leave the EU on June 23.
Assange backs Leave because, as he sees it, David Cameron’s government is using EU legislation as an excuse for its own decision-making.
“It launders things to the EU and then claims that it can’t do anything about it,” he said.
Julian Assange is wanted in Sweden for sexual assault, a charge that he has repeatedly denied. Assange believes that, should he be extradited back to Sweden, he will then be handed over to the US, where he will be quizzed about the activities of WikiLeaks. He found refuge in Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has stayed for four years already.
