Like the White House, Julian Assange also refuses to hand over documents to Congress.

Wait until you hear his excuse.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has declined to provide documents to the House Judiciary Committee’s broad inquiry into actions by President Donald Trump, his lawyer confirmed Thursday morning.

“The First Amendment dictates that an inquiry by Congress should not begin by issuing requests to journalists for documents pertaining to its newsgathering,” the attorney, Barry Pollack, said in an email.

Assange has long parried criticism that he acted on behalf of Russia when he posted hacked Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee emails in 2016 by suggesting his actions were no different than journalists accepting and publishing private documents.

But the U.S. intelligence community has assessed that WikiLeaks was an active participant in the effort to obtain and post Democratic emails, partnering with Russian propaganda outlets and acting as a tool of the Russian government. Assange has denied such claims.

Julian Assange is by no means a journalist, and once he decided to work with Russia to undermine American democracy he lost any protection that the 1st Amendment might have afforded him. 

Julian Assange is the enemy of the state and he needs to be arrested and dragged to America to stand trial.

Look at that, I’m talking more like a Republican than Republicans are nowadays. 

Just another bizarre day in Donald Trump’s America.

    Upset with Fox? Just now on the South Lawn, the President took questions from several reporters, but ignored @johnrobertsFox, avoiding eye contact with him until he started walking away and glared at him.

    It was a rather chilly March morning….

    Mccain associate David Kramer gave the dossier to the press – after the election. But in a deposition, he says he did it at the urging of Christopher Steele. He doesn’t say McCain told him to do it.

    OT?-Bet Not
    “Moore once was the chief economist for The Heritage Foundation, a far right wing think tank that is closely intertwined with the Trump administration. For unknown reasons that title was changed. He is now a “distinguished visiting fellow.” “He was the Founding President of the union-busting Club for Growth, which reportedly has received funding from the Koch Brothers. And he is listed as “the senior economic contributor for FreedomWorks,” another Koch Brothers project.”
    “Donald Trump’s Senior Economic Adviser is a F*cking Idiot.”

      “CNN has confirmed that contributor Stephen Moore is no longer employed with the network after President Donald Trump tapped him for the board of the
      Federal Reserve. “Moore joined CNN as a contributor in early 2017,” CNN’s Brian Stelter said”

    I’m amazed at the audacity of these creeps – from Assange to Don the Con with his White House full of attorneys being paid by us taxpayers to keep facts from us.

    The dude has rights, the US can’t just kidnap him and render him to the States for a kangaroo court and imprisonment. There are such things as laws.

    I suspect though that by the time he ever faces court he’ll be able to successfully plead insanity. I think he went nuts a long time ago.
