Lede: Remember when Wikileaks was cool? Neither do I.
Julian Assange originally had me a bit mystified by the idea of Wikileaks. I’ll admit that the thought of massive dirty secrets about world governments and corporations coming out was enticing. However, Assange has turned from another maybe-good-guy into another fraudster and con artist trying to fabricate nonsense in order to get fame and money.
He spent much of 2016 assuring America and the world that he would topple the Hillary juggernaut, and do something that would utterly destroy her campaign. She’d have no choice but to resign from everything, flee the country, change her name, and wear a mask the rest of her life while pretending to be a peasant farmer in order to escape the consequences.
So today, Wikileaks dropped a BOMBSHELL. Did it cause a rip in space-time? Did Hillary run for the hills? Did anything happen at all?
Turns out… no, not really. Instead, Wikileaks and Assange ended up destroying their credibility in one fateful tweet. Wikileaks is pushing the conspiracy that Hillary Clinton had an “earpiece” in place during the recent Commander in Chief town hall event hosted by NBC. They’re presenting “proof” with this email snippet from Huma Abedin to Hillary Clinton.
By the way, if you think the email address looks weird, it’s OK. We checked this in-depth and the PDF that the email address was pulled from when it was copied ended up reprinting with the copyright symbol and GOY instead of @ and GOV. No they aren’t blaming the Jews with the Goy thing, either.
See the date? 2009-09-23. Hillary’s personal assistant, Huma Abedin, knew in 2009 that in 2016 Hillary would be attending a town hall sit-down interview on NBC. So, Huma proved to be the best personal assistant E-V-E-R by making sure that she had her earpiece ready 7 years in advance for that very day.
She was at the UN that day. Practically everyone in the UN carries an earpiece.
Well, Wikileaks? Did you see her wearing this during the Commander-in Chief town hall on NBC? Did you? Did you? Of course you didn’t.
Hillary Clinton wore this huge shoebox of an ear piece at the UN for translation purposes when non-english speakers were addressing the room. Everyone else wears one too. It’s never been a scandal until today, when Julian Assange wants to try to make himself famous all over again by lying to the world. Her assistant asked her, in an email, if she had this earpiece with her, or if she needed one. That is all.
Wikileaks, on behalf of America, screw you. We aren’t as dumb as you wish we were.
