Donald Trump Is Now Julian Assange’s Spox: “I Simply State What He States”

It seems that Donald Trump is now alleged rapist Julian Assange’s spokesman, saying “I simply states what he states.” Um, does he even know that he is defending a Russian sycophant?

Trump tweeted in two parts:  “The dishonest media likes saying that I am in agreement with Julian Assange — wrong. I simply state what he states, it is for the people to make up their minds as to the truth. The media lies to make it look like I am against “Intelligence” when in fact I am a big fan!”

Yesterday he posted a series of tweets defending Assange, a foreign adversary and Russian tool, who had a vendetta against Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.

Trump tweeted: “Julian Assange said “a 14 year old could have hacked Podesta” – why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!”

He then followed that up with a link to Sean Hannity’s interview with Assange:

We have to call Trump out and resist the continued march towards an authoritarian America, in which he considers our number one foreign adversary, Vladimir Putin, a friend. He quoted Putin to attack Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

More on Trump and Assange uniting to sow hacking doubts:

“Just a year ago, they might have seemed the oddest of couples. But now President-elect Donald Trump and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, have formed a united front against the conclusion of American intelligence agencies that Russian intelligence used hacked emails to interfere in the presidential election,” the New York Times reports.

“Mr. Assange, long reviled by many Republicans as an anarchist lawbreaker out to damage the United States, has won new respect from conservatives who appreciated his site’s release of Democratic emails widely perceived to have hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And Mr. Trump has been eager to undercut the conclusion of the F.B.I., the C.I.A. and other agencies that those emails were provided to WikiLeaks courtesy of Russian government hackers.”
