Report: DOJ Prepares Charges Against WikiLeaks, Assange

Written by  Infowars.com

The U.S. Department of Justice may be planning to bring criminal charges against anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, according to numerous reports.

Sources with knowledge of the matter, who reportedly spoke with CNN and The Washington Post, claim the case surrounds numerous leaks such as recent documents on the CIA’s hacking abilities as well as military files leaked by Chelsea Manning back in 2010.

Charges could include theft of government property, conspiracy or violations of the Espionage Act.

“Prosecutors in recent weeks have been drafting a memo that contemplates charges against members of the WikiLeaks organization…” The Post writes. “The memo, though, is not complete, and any charges against members of WikiLeaks, including founder Julian Assange, would need approval from the highest levels of the Justice Department.”

Speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies last week, CIA Director Mike Pompeo indicated the US would step up its role against leakers – specifically citing WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

Wikileaks “directed Chelsea Manning to intercept specific secret information, and it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States,” Pompeo stated.

“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”

At a press conference Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions also said efforts to combat leakers were a “priority” for the Department of Justice.

He exposed Hillery for the nasty crook she is and probably cost her the election.. Thank you Mr. Assange for reporting the truth, the real truth. This is what real investigative reporting is supposed to be like. Not fake news for Democrat's by Democrat's to disparage Republicans or the other way around.. Freedom of speech is it alive or dead? Next we will be told what can be said on the internet.. Oh Waite that is already in the works. America better thank God Hillery was not elected. This man should be free to report, if its the truth what are they afraid of?

Julian Assange and Wikileaks have not reported one fake news. In it's over 10 years of history, it has never been wrong once. Their mission is to expose dirty government secrets, underhanded dealings, so the people in the world will know the truth. What is wrong with that? Without Julian Assange, we would never know the many wrong doings, crimes of Hillary Clinton. Julian Assange is a hero. Why in the world does our Justice Department want to charge him with crime? What crime has he committed? All the secrets he exposed were leaked from government sources or other sources. He did not hack anything. Leave him alone. That's the least we can do.

Why in the world would our DOJ waste time on this when they have worlds of important stuff to deal with. Were it not for Asange, the American people would never have known about all of the dirty policitics this last election cycle. The lame stream media would never have told the truth regarding the Clinton machine. Personally, I think this man did a great service to our country.

Why do we continue to kill the messenger and ignore the message?

What right does the U.S. have to charge Wikileaks? It is the organization's mission to expose any government's secrets. It has been doing it successfully for over 10 years. We thank him for giving the world lights about the dark sides of governments. If we don't want Wikileaks to expose us, do one of two things: (1) Do not commit crimes or do shady, underhanded dealings. (2) Come up with bullet proof ways to prevent cyber hacking, or train your government workers to be loyal and never to reveal any government secret.

Reminds me of an Obama speech - where he said - "The only people who fear the truth are those with something to hide." Of course all his minions cheered like hell when he said it - but - they didn't even raise an eyebrow when he spent all that time and money trying to make sure ALL of his records were sealed. Sure sounds like he had a lot to hide to me.

We are worrying about the "mote in our brothers eye" before doing something about the beam in our own>

Former CIA station manager, former marine, John Stockwell´s video overviews the 3rd world destruction that the CIA has pursued since 1950, conducting hundreds of coup détat, www youtube com/watch?v=l1_3ayrwkc4 . More recently, former CIA officers Philip Giraldi and Ray McGovern stated that president Assad of Syria has not conducted gas attacks on Syrians – or anyone. Who in president Trump´s cabinet is providing him with fraudulent information? Former USArmy Psy-Ops officer Scott Bennett documented the CIA to fund ISIS via Swiss bank accounts. (details at “My Story”, by Scott Bennett) Assisting the CIA/MOSSAD to destroy the sovereign nation, Syria, and its democratically-elected president Assad, was not one of president Trump´s campaign promises.

Thank God for wikileaks!~ Look at all of the corruption they have exposed - some otherwise beyond belief! If they did not do it who would? CNN? MSNBC? CBS? -- lol

Assange did a service by letting out Clinton and DNC emails. Pompao seems like a same O Same O elitist who so far sounds like he comes from the FBI's James Comey school of politics.

So they intend to go after Assange? What they're really pissed at is Hillary and the DNC were exposed for their corrupt activities! This is a revenge attack. NOTE they refused to prosecute Hillary for violations far more serious regarding DELIBERATE breaches of our Nation's security!

Onoe of the best things that has happened to he government in decades. Unearthed the dirt, lies, corruption and probably more dirty tricks they have plyed upon the citizens and taxpayers that one can fathom. All the listening in on calls, and all forms of communication without warrants fir fishing trips and all for what not much or made up . They say they are honest yet dishonesty is their forte. Words like monitor, surveillance, wiretappping, it's all really the same, intrusion. Wikileaks has donre the citizens a service nothing less. Had they monitored their own chances are the swmp would be cleared faster. There are politicians that have yer to pay taxes they owe, Why is that. There are criminals in ciongress also that surprised mebut then there was Chappaqutick (spelling) and a death here. Yet nothing was done.

Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is REAL NEWS! If it were not for WikiLeaks/Assange, President Trump would not be President period. It was WikiLeaks that exposed the corrupt "so-called" News Media, Hillary Clinton and her cronies, PizzaGate, etc...

I don't think Julian does any hacking. I think news is brought to him. He doesn't steal it...others do., so how can they get him on theft of info?

If these so-called "sources" have been speaking to CNN and Washington Post, I'd be hard-pressed to lend them any credibility!
