BREAKING: WikiLeaks ‘Suing CNN’ Over On-Air Assange Smear


WikiLeaks Suing CNN

WikiLeaks says it intends to sue CNN after a counter-terrorism analyst went on a smear campaign against Julian Assange calling him a ‘pedophile’ on air.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the whistle-blowing organization indicated it will bring legal action against CNN over the matter, tweeting: “We have issued instructions to sue CNN for defamation”.

The former  CIA counter-terrorism analyst Phil Mudd was doing a segment on CNN about Assange’s recent interview with Fox News.

Mudd said that the Fox News interview “skirted the bottom line [of] do you know if the Russian’s were involved?… not ‘where did you get the information’.”

He later went on to label Assange as a “pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.”
