"A show trial is to be used to make an example of Julian . The point is to intimidate other journalists. Intimidation, by the way, is one of the primary purposes for the use of torture around the world. The message to all of us is: This is what will happen to you if you emulate the Wikileaks model." - Nils Melzer, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture.

@jz
Firstly, he's not a journalist.
Secondly, he acted in collusion with the Russians and allies of Trump.

@ScottMortimer I am sorry but you are very wrong here.

1/ Why somebody who authenticates, investigates and publishes truthful information is not a journalist? Why did he got all these journalistic awards challengepower.info/assange_s_ Why HRW, RSF, etc. confirm? (He also holds press card(s))

2/ rigged against its popular candidate to advantage less popular candidate / Campaign Strategy to promote backfired spectacularly /
@Wikileaks merely reported it

@ScottMortimer The "collusion with the Russians" is a fraud, fake news, and comforting fantasy tale for ppl who cannot admit that candidate Clinton was terrible, that she played with fire and lost. You're more intelligent than that are you? Also you are probably someone who back your claims with evidence and facts?

Also abt "Ze Russians", WikiLeaks always stated they *cannot* know the identity of their sources. That's smart, that's safe, that's how we want sources to be able to transmit secrets
