Assange Fires Back At U.S. Intel Report
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange fired back Monday at the U.S. intelligence community for its report which says that his anti-secrecy website was aided by the Russian government to distribute hacked information from Democratic figures during the run-up to the 2016 Presidential election.
From Fox News:
Assange, speaking during an audio-only Periscope Q&A session, said the source of his information was not a member “of any government” or “state parties” and did not “come from the Russian government.” The WikiLeaks editor-in-chief blasted Friday’s declassified intelligence report on “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections” as being inadequate and misleading.
“It was not an intelligence report,” Assange said. “It does not have the structure of an intelligence report. It does not have the structure of a Presidential Daily Brief. It was frankly quite embarrassing.”
He added: “It was clearly designed for political effect.”
