Is the FBI leaking to Julian Assange?

Julian Assange of Wikileaks says he has enough information on Hillary Clinton to indict her. The implication is he hacked into this.

What if the FBI leaked it to him?

From Peston on Sunday (a weekly TV show in ITV in Britain):
Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, said on Sunday that the journalist organisation is planning to release upcoming leaks in relation to US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
Speaking to Peston on Sunday, Mr Assange said WikiLeaks has further information relating to claims circulating since 2015 that Clinton had in the past used her family's private email server for official communications.
Does he have this?

I do not doubt that if he has emails linked to donations to her foundation and then linked to action by the Department of State on her watch would upset a grand jury in such a way that it might indict her.

And I have no doubt that the FBI may have such information.

But how did it get to Asange?

He hacked it?

How did he know where to look?

The FBI has a history of leaking information. Its most famous such case was when Mark Felt -- passed over by Nixon for the director's job -- leaked Watergate information to the Washington Post.

But maybe Assange, sitting there in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, is a great hacker.

  2. Jus' supposin', the President allows the Justice Dept to leak some info to cause a rebellion at the DNC convention... I don't believe that any indictments are coming down, but imagine a crafty methodology to make Joe Biden the candidate.

    1. Oh, yes, Goofy Joe is definitely preferable to Cacklepants.

      The last thing the Choom Gang wants is an indictment. If her health, thought by most to be shaky, gave way, that would be something else.

  3. The G-men are said to want to see their investigation at least get a presentment. I've always thought they wouldn't have problem leaking info if it was the only way to get some action.

  4. Nah, Big D, I don't buy it. At this point, hackers can find out the size and color of your underwear, if they're interested. I am NOT an Assange or Snowden fan but once you go online, you're compromised...

  5. The FBI knows Obungler and Lynch will quash any indictment of Thunder Rodent Thighs. James Comey doesn't want to end his career by opposing them. There are no longer any Elliot Richardsons in gummint service, at least not in any Dimocrat administrations. So maybe an underling wants to see the right thing happen, a Crookedcankles indictment, and is leaking stuff to Assange. Both BJ and the PIAP have been breaking laws for so long at least one of them belongs in jail. It shows just how corrupt the Dimocrat Party is that they would select Hi-liar-y, a congenital liar and a career crook, as their nominee. It also shows the continuing stupidity of the American voter after electing an incompetent anti-American empty suit twice, now may elect a career treasonous criminal. WTF happened to my country?

  6. The FBI isn't the source. The Russians are.

    1. I have no doubt they have every email ever sent and received on that illegal server, including the 30,000+ that were deleted.

      But wouldn't the Russians want Hillary to win for blackmail purposes?

  7. "WikiLeaks has further information relating to claims circulating since 2015 that Clinton had in the past used her family's private email server for official communications."

    That's a pretty vague claim, don't you think? Is there any "there" there? It's no secret that Clinton used a private server to conduct official government business. She's admitted it. This is a nothing-burger until Assange gets a lot more specific about what he knows that hasn't already been widely disclosed.

  8. A kind of Damned if you do, Damned if you don't.
    If the Emails are released and Hillary goes down, then Biden will step in. At that point all the NonTrumpers will announce support for Slo Joe, giving him the election. The so called republicans that are NonTrumpers really don't give a Damn if a Dem wins so long as Trump doesn't. I hope they choke on the Dems. SC appointments. I for one may never vote again.

  9. While it may be useful to prevent America catching Hillariasis, am I alone in thinking that that SOBB Assange deserves to be leaked ON rather than leaked TO?

  10. Excellent theory! Denny nails it. I doubt DoJ will ever take any action against the Hildebeest or her followers. I suspect the Champ is in as deep as anyone else. The White House Communications Detachment would have HAD TO HAVE known the Beest's emails were arriving via an UNCLAS box. DoJ has had plenty of time bring charges, nothing is forthcoming.
