Julian Assange Smacks Down MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: WikiLeaks Has Nothing to do With Russia

Fake News media outlets are now obsessing over Cambridge Analytica and Facebook’s data mining during the 2016 presidential election.

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton’s creepy campaign manager John Podesta whined like a baby to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell over the fact that his leaked emails eclipsed the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape of Donald Trump’s locker room talk.

Maybe because no one cares what Trump said in private over 10 years ago?

Of course Andrea Mitchell teed up the question for Podesta by reminding viewers his emails were leaked minutes after the Access Hollywood tape hit the wire.

“And just to set the context, both of those Wikileaks dumps were early in the morning to drive the news cycle in the U.S. So, unusual from the get go and you guys noticed it right away,” Mitchell said to Podesta.

“Absolutely, and I think it was done to try to divert attention to give the anchors on Fox News something to talk about other than the Access Hollywood tape and I think that the question is whether there was coordination between the campaign and Wikileaks, at least through intermediaries, about the timing of the release,” Podesta said.

Andrea Mitchell then said without any proof that WikiLeaks is connected to Russia.

“Since WikiLeaks is connected to Russia, how does that arouse your suspicions about Russia’s role?” Mitchell asked Podesta

Podesta then spread the lie that all the U.S. Intelligence agencies believes that WikiLeaks obtained the DNC emails as a result of Russian hacking.

MSNBC tweeted: John Podesta wants to know if the Trump campaign coordinated with Wikileaks to release his stolen emails and distract from the Access Hollywood tape

On Wednesday, Julian Assange hammered fake news Andrea Mitchell for suggesting the Russians gave Podesta’s ‘hacked’ emails to WikiLeaks.

Assange tweeted to MSNBC: Error in your reportage: WikiLeaks has nothing to do with Russia and even the allegations against it are considerably less than Politico, the Intercept and other US press

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said many times on the record that Russia was not his source for the Podesta emails.

To this date, the FBI still hasn’t inspected the DNC servers nor have they interviewed Julian Assange.
