The chats don't reveal anything new about WikiLeaks' relationship with the Trump campaign, although they are consistent with the group's public statements casting doubt on claims by former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone that he had advanced knowledge of the group's anti-Clinton leaks. The chats don't illuminate any connections with the Russian government or tell us anything about the identity of the source who provided WikiLeaks with emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.

"Assange's thinking appeared to be rooted not in ideological agreement with the right wing in the U.S., but in the tactical idea that a Republican president would face more resistance to an aggressive military posture than an interventionist President Hillary Clinton would."

He's an egotistical idiot, the two previous Republican Presidents had both taken us to war in Iraq. Neither Hillary nore Obama were pacifists but they did not invade and occupy nations. Assange hates Hillary and lets that cloud his judgement which is very questionable in the first place.

Obama used diplomacy on Iran and NK to avoid armed conflict and partially withdrew from the ME quagmire.
The GOP draft dodging cowardly death eaters are itching to run US soldiers through wood chippers to funnel profits to the MIC that owns them.
