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.
