It was dubbed ‘ The Most Unexpected Interview of the US Election’. Whistle-blower Julian Assange gave one of his most incendiary interviews ever in a John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films.
The world premier of this interview was aired on RT and was simultaneously aired on News1st today.
When questioned regarding the connection between the creation of ISIL and those who are meant to be fighting the jihadist Assange pointed to an email by Hilary Clinton The email to campaign manager John Podesta that came shortly after her period as the Secretary of State states that according to the Wikileaks founder ISIS is funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar
“I actually think this is the most significant email in the whole collection…”said Assange. The pioneering whistle-blower pointed at Clinton for causing destruction of the Libyan State
“Libya more that anyone else’s war was Hillary Clinton’s war”, said Assange who further explained that Barack Obama initially opposed it
He charged the Hillary Clinton championed the move and its documented throughout her emailsAssange explained that Clinton put her favoured agent Sidney Blumenthal on the matter and there’s more than 1,700 emails out of the 33,000 of Hillary Clinton’s emails that was published just about Libya.
. It’s not about that Libya has cheap oil “, said the Australian who noted that Clinton perceived the removal of Gaddafi and the overthrow of the Libyan state something that she would use to run in the general election for president and in late 2011, there’s an internal document called the “Libya Tick Tock” that is produced for Hillary Clinton, and it’s a chronological description of how Hillary Clinton was the central figure in the destruction of the Libyan state.
“The Clinton camp has been able to project a kind of neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything”, said Assange defending against Clinton campaign accusations that Russia is the source of the leaks.
“We can say that the Russian government is not the source, yes. WikiLeaks has been publishing for 10 years. In that 10 years, we’ve published 10 million documents. Several thousand individual publications, several thousand different sources. And we have never got it wrong”.
With several leaks on Clinton that is threatening her campaign, Assange was questioned on his stance on Donald Trump
“My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win”, said Assange who explained that Donald Trump does not have the backing of the major establishments.
“Trump doesn’t have one establishment – maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment. But banks, intelligence, arms companies, big foreign money, etc – it’s all united behind Hillary Clinton”, he explained
When questioned on his preference Assange said that his pick is Trump and explained that Trump represents American “white trash,” deplorable and irredeemable and there is a fear of seeming to be associated in any way with that, a social fear that lowers the class status of anyone who can be accused of somehow assisting in any way Trump, including criticizing Clinton and when looking at how the middle class gains its economic and social power, it makes absolute sense.
