I really should find another nickname for the lovely lady of Hawaii. Anyway, she hit the Julian nail squarely on the larger picture head.
Democratic presidential hopeful Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) condemned the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday, calling the arrest a threat to journalists.
“The arrest of #JulianAssange is meant to send a message to all Americans and journalists: be quiet, behave, toe the line. Or you will pay the price,” Gabbard tweeted.
The Democrat’s remark came hours after police in London arrested Assange, citing charges he is facing in the U.S.
Assange is accused of conspiring to hack into computers in connection with WikiLeaks’s release of classified documents from former Army private and intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning.
The indictment filed under seal last year in Virginia and released Thursday alleges that Assange helped Manning crack a password stored on a Defense Department computer, which was connected to a government system that stored classified information.
This wasn’t exactly the sealed indictment we were looking for. And, upon reading the crazy conspiracy theory charges, I wonder if this is finally the first time the FedGov is telling the truth. My inclination is that it is not. I do know that facts, evidence, proof, and the rule of law don’t matter anymore. For Assange or for any of us, to include the journos.
It’s interesting that the new breed members of exotic Democratic women are just about the only people in power willing to say what needs to be said. Wouldn’t that our men had done the same – a while ago.
Hang ten, honey.
