During the 2016 presidential election, WikiLeaks tweeted a story about Hillary Clinton musing about assassinating Assange with a weaponized drone.
Washington Examiner reported:
WikiLeaks tweeted a story Monday claiming Hillary Clinton asked in 2010 whether it would be possible to kill the group’s founder, Julian Assange, using a drone strike.
True Pundit reported Sunday that State Department officials revealed that Clinton asked, “Can’t we just drone this guy” at a Nov. 23, 2010, meeting with other officials. The report said Clinton’s suggestion was met with laughter, but also said Clinton was clearly “fuming” at WikiLeaks’ continued leaking of confidential State Department cables that she had signed.
“Hillary Clinton on Assange “Can’t we just drone this guy,”” tweeted WikiLeaks.
