“Ellen Ratner can confirm that the Saturday before the Election 2016, she met with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for 3 hours. He told her that Russia did not “hack” the DNC, it was from an internal source.”...Ellen Ratner’s attendance at Embry University symposium on November 9, 2016

“Letters Rogatory have been sent to the UK requesting the testimony of Julian Assange in at least 2 Seth Rich cases.”...Citizen Wells

 

From Don’t Extradite Assange September 7, 2020.

“Journalism professor begins testimony

Mark Feldstein, journalism historian and professor at the University of Maryland, gives testimony. See his witness statement here as to his determination that what Assange and WikiLeaks practice is journalism: Mark Feldstein witness statement

Feldstein testifies to the ubiquity of leaks of classified information:

“There are so many of them – thousands upon thousands – it is routine; every study in the last 60 years has said the leaks of classified information inform the public about government decision making but they also evidence government dishonesty….and they go back to George Washington’s presidency.”

Some journalists make a career of this?

Feldstein says, “Yes, Pulitzer prize winners and some of the most respected journalists in the nation.”

Would you expect publishers to be prosecuted for this criminal conduct?

“Well no…because the First Amendment protects a free press and it is vital that the press expise wrongdoing….not because journalists are somehow privileged but that the public has a right to be informed.”

Has there ever been a precedent of the prosecution of a publisher?

“There has always been a divide, the source-distributor divide….they have charged whistleblowers or sources, but have never charged a publisher, a journalistic or other news outlet.”

There have been other attempts to prosecute journalists before?

“There have been extraordinary efforts to punish presidential enemies…”

Presidents going after journalists but never to the point of a grand jury returning charges?

“That’s correct”

At this point, the court had technical issues with Prof. Feldstein’s videolink, and adjourned for the day. Court resumes tomorrow, 10am London time.

  1. “We can prove, that all the data that Wikileaks published from the DNC, that was downloaded on the 23rd and 25th of May, and also the 26th of August of 2016; all of that carried the signatures of being downloaded to a thumb drive or a CD-ROM, and physically transported,”…William Binney

  2. CW……
    ……….perhaps we all should PRAY in EARNEST for Julian Assange. While he is an Australian, it is doubtful if that fact will carry any weight in his extradition hearing. Hopefully the truth about the bastards who are behind all of this will soon emerge for the world public to see in bright daylight.

  3. AND…….
    ……….a small band of slimy upper echelon politicians in America are in truth the subterranean force behind most of the reason why Julian Assange is being held in prison today. If the truth was to ever get out about the upper echelon POS they would all be in prison for the remainder of their lives. Perhaps a few would even receive justified death sentences. At least ONE such POS, ordered the hit on Seth Rich.

  4. AND……
    ……….I think of him as having the facial features of a TERRAPIN. He is ONE of the subterranean upper echelon bastards, and probably is the POS who ordered the hit on Seth Rich. He is also a graduate of the 1950s New York Tammany Hall political crowd, many of whom were Mafia members. Thanks to Rudy Giuliani a few of the Mafia bastards hastily bought ONE WAY tickets back to where they came from. Most were put in prison.

  5. WONDERING……
    ……….if the world pandemic will be followed by a world wide FAMINE! Could easily happen. What do you do when everything STOPS…..including food production? I would suspect that the first thing that would happen is the local dog and cat population would quickly diminish, or perhaps disappear altogether. This would be followed by most of the farm animals in the nearby rural areas. Then thousands of people would be out in the woods hunting anything, and EVERYTHING. When all wildlife has been consumed the only thing left is PEOPLE. REMEMBER THE DONNER STORY?

  6. CW……..
    ………even though Mr. Binney can prove there is a thumb drive signature it probably will mean nothing to the RAGING LUNATIC LEFTISTS. They believe that they are SUPERIOR to all other people on earth, and therefore all other people are stupid. In truth it is these people themselves who are defective. Their minds are TWISTED.

  7. Hopefully it will carry great weight in the courtroom.

  8. CW…….
    ………..and hopefully Mr. Binney would be able to demonstrate the incontrovertible technical signature of a THUMB DRIVE having been used in obtaining the private DNC emails. YES this would prove that Assange DID NOT HIMSELF hack the DNC computers. This would simultaneously show that the draining of the DNC computers was IN FACT carried out buy someone within the organization………or a TRUSTED associate !!!!!

  9. AND…….
    ………….the TERRAPIN was way ahead of everybody. He figured out exactly who had drained the DNC computers. THAT IS WHY HE STATED THAT HE “HAD NO PROBLEM WITH RICH BEING TAUGHT A LESSON”. In such a setting simple words translated become ORDERS…….to whack Seth Rich. EASY TO SEE THROUGH!!!! WHEN THE TERRAPIN MADE HIS STATEMENT ABOUT TEACHING RICH A LESSON HE ALSO SHOWS EVERYONE WHO ORDERED THE HIT ON RICH. IT WAS WITH LITTLE DOUBT ORDERED BY THE TERRAPIN.
