Julian Assange: Please don’t trust the US Senate Intelligence Committee or anyone in US government. Don’t set foot in the US. If you speak to Senate Intel slobs, please do so outside the US and only if every word is televised live

8/8/18, Highly Suspect – Corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee Wants To Interview Julian Assange Behind Closed Doors,” tcth, sundance 

The most corrupt part of congress is the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI).  The SSCI is the center of the deepest part of the Deep State swamp.

The SSCI never, ever,  E.V.E.R… does anything that does not protect and advance the self-interest of the corrupt Washington DC professional political class.

Apparently the SSCI wants to interview WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, in a closed session.

[AP] WASHINGTON“The Senate Intelligence Committee wants to interview WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as part of its investigation into [alleged] Russian interference in the 2016 election.

That’s according to WikiLeaks, which tweeted Wednesday that a letter was delivered to Assange in London seeking a “closed interview” with committee staff at a “mutually agreeable time and location.”

The website said its legal team is “considering the offer but the conditions must conform to a high ethical standard.”  The Intelligence Committee declined to comment.

Assange has long figured into the Russia investigations due to WikiLeaks’ role in releasing [allegedly] hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016.

A Justice Department indictment of 12 Russians last month said an unnamed organization, believed to be WikiLeaks, had received [allegedly] hacked Democratic emails from a person linked to Russian intelligence.”  (read more)

“BREAKING: US Senate Intelligence Committee calls editor @JulianAssange to testify. Letter delivered via US embassy in London. WikiLeaks’ legal team say they are “considering the offer but the conditions must conform to a high ethical standard”. Also:— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) August 8, 2018″ 

You could slowly drive rail-road spikes through my knee-caps and I still would never concede that that SSCI has a “good” motive here.  It’s impossible.

The severity of the corruption within the Senate Intelligence Committee is the one constant in an ever changing universe.

Every action they take is for their own interests. Most of that action is illegal (see the recent James Wolfe indictment); and all of their conduct is severely unethical (see the secret messages between Vice-chair Mark Warner and Christopher Steele).

Remember, this is the committee who said no-one in congress is ever allowed to question the integrity of the intelligence committee:

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is the only institution more corrupt than the Obama DOJ/FBI and White House….These are severely corrupt people.”

Added: Following is excerpt from 8/3/18 John Pilger interview regarding Julian Assange. Why is the US involved in this? Unless the US wants to offer Mr. Assange permanent asylum, it should not be included in discussions about his future with Australia, the UK, or any other country. Pathetic US officials have pompously claimed jurisdiction over Mr. Assange. This is funny coming from the lawless toilet the world now knows the US to be. 

8/7/18, Pilger Excoriates Media on Assange Silence,” Consortium News, John Pilger is interviewed by Dennis Bernstein and Randy Credico

“Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and investigative reporter John Pilger takes the gloves off on the continuing attempts to upend WikiLeaks and arrest its founding publisher, Julian Assange, in this interview with Dennis Bernstein and Randy Credico.” 

“Pilger talks about Assange’s deteriorating health and the physical dangers he faces during this period of virtual isolation. Pilger also excoriates the western media for their silence and pro-government stand on the marginalizing and potential prosecution of Assange, even after they collaborated with WikiLeaks and major high-profile breaking stories. The interview is part of a continuing national radio series—Assange: Countdown to Freedom. Pilger was interviewed on August 3rd, 2018.”

DB: John, what is the latest we know about how Julian Assange is being treated and his current state? 

John Pilger: His state of health is just about the same, as I understand it. He needs medical attention, the kind of treatment you get only in a hospital. But it has been made clear to him that if he attempts to go to a hospital he will not be given free passage and he will be arrested. Since he was arrested in 2010, Assange has not been charged with a single crime. His treatment amounts to the most unprecedented persecution. Julian could leave the embassy if his own government, the government of his homeland, Australia, applied legitimate diplomatic pressure on behalf of its citizen. We must ask ourselves why this hasn’t happened. 

My own feeling is that there is a great deal of collusion between the Australian, the British and the US governments–meant to close down WikiLeaks completely and/or deliver Julian Assange to the Americans. Recently the Australian foreign minister, Julie Bishop, traveled with senior officials to London and to Washington and raised the whole matter of Julian. But they raised it in a way that didn’t support the idea that a government should represent its citizens. These people listened to the more powerful governments. In Washington they met Mr. Pompeo, who refused to discuss Assange altogether. I think there is collusion which amounts to an attempt to try to do a deal with Assange whereby he might be allowed free passage of return to Australia if he shuts down WikiLeaks. I think that is very, very likely. 

As I understand Julian, this is something he would not even contemplate. But that might be one of the so-called “wretched deals” that are being offered Assange. Some very strange things are being said by senior members of these two governments. The new foreign secretary of the United Kingdom, Jeremy Hunt, said sarcastically that the British police would offer Julian “a warm welcome” when he came out, when he would face serious charges. 

There are no serious charges. He hasn’t been charged with anything.”…
