Oh wait, they're serious.

Let me laugh harder.

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news conference Thursday that Assange's arrest is a "priority."

Oh, so they want to silence him before somebody dangles either money, immunity, or a home country in front of his face in exchange for coming clean on Trumpestroika.  Let me know how that works out.

Good luck getting him out of the Embassy. Or do you think that the US Marshals should storm the Ecuadorian Embassy in London? FBI?

Ooooooh, I know! Have the Special Forces troops do it! Maybe get the CIA to do it! Yeah, get all the acronym services in on it. THAT won't be illegal or anything! I'm sure that the Brits won't mind, or Ecuador or the UN for that matter.

Got to offer him a deal before he gets tired and wants to talk. And they have to do it fast, because you can see the seams already straining on this bag of rabid cats and weasels that Donnie calls an Administration...

Yep.  The US draws up the warrant, Russia spirits him out the back door of the Bolivian embassy and onto a private jet for Moscow before anyone from the FBI, CIA, MI5, MI6 or any other agency can question him in regards to the 2016 document dumps.  Once he's in Moscow, he's outside the US reach.

Yeah, Assange has already served Trump's purposes just like Trump already served Putin's purposes.

There's no reason to maintain either relationship anymore. Two of the three got played, and it's not the non-blonde.

Midnight Express.

So, a MOAB on the Embassy?
Or a couple dozen cruise missiles?
 
2017-04-20 08:10:18 PM  
Since Assange is related to the Russia investigation, wouldn't Sessions' involvement conflict with his recusal?
 
2017-04-20 08:11:38 PM  
As pointed out in the other thread, there ain't shiat the US can do about him.  This is an excuse to look tough and impartial as they ramp up the 'leak' investigations.

Yep, and they are safe to impugn his character now that he serves no purpose anymore.
 
2017-04-20 08:14:35 PM  
Hell, they probably teleconferenced him in to discuss it before hand.  At this point the only surprising thing would be if they didn't manage to wiretap themselves warning him and the Russians ahead of time.  Next up, a missile strike on the embassy in London that manages to scorch the badminton field and crack half a tea service.

The Russians probably wouldn't hesitate to fit him in three or four.

The FBI must be getting very close to dropping the Mother of All Investigations on Trump.

Once that happens, everything Assange has on Trump and his associates will have zero value, and Wikileaks will release it just to fark with Donnie.

Some assembly might be required when you take back him out of the pouch.

Assange is a complete douche, but it's only one step from prosecuting Wikileaks to going after the NY Times. Assange is a Russian-funded (via his RT show) useful idiot, for sure, but he's not a spy - he received leaks, just like most of the reporters in Washington do on a regular basis (and must do, to do their jobs).

I'll believe it when I see it. Until then, this is just Trump being Trump.

Thats idiotic. You might as well be saying that prosecuting InfoWars is only one step away from going after the NYT.

Wikileaks dumped a lot of data that they shouldnt have.

I suspect darker motivations.  Camp Trump is going to have Wikileaks dump some highly sensitive documents that make the CIA look absolutely terrible.  The offenses will all be Obama-era operations.  The GOP will be so "shocked" that they'll call for an immediate inquiry into Obama and Clapper's management of the organization.  It'll be a scandal a minute dominating the headlines while the Russia investigation fades into the background.

Sound farfetched?  Go read Assange's carefully scripted responses.  Those are the retorts of a man that knew what questions were going to be on the exam before they were asked.  They're nothing at all like the canned responses he's fallen back on for the past few years.  Assange has the big-boys at the FSB writing for him again and it shows.

Again, Trump isn't trying to get his hands on Assange, he's trying to discredit the CIA.  Documets will be released.  Congressional inquiries will clog the media's arteries as if they were buttery emails.

This - the election is over, and Trump doesn't need Assange or the Russians anymore - and they are going to find out what every asshole dumb enough to do business with Trump has always found out.
 
2017-04-20 09:39:02 PM  
I'd be very surprised if Assange hadn't planned for this by preparing some special files to be released if he is arrested.
 
2017-04-20 09:39:50 PM  
Does anyone believe that Assange doesn't have a "open if something happens to me" file stashed somewhere?

Putin has the goods on Trump and may well release it to Assange when he determines the timing would be optimal but it ain't Julie's call.

That may also explain Chaffetz trying to get out of Congress as fast as farking possible.
Weird is an understatement for his behavior the past few days. I get the feeling he knows something is coming down the pipe that he won't be able to get away from.

The game of Trumper musical chairs may have already started.

qorkfiend: Does anyone believe that Assange doesn't have a "open if something happens to me" file stashed somewhere?


Nope. He's published a rather large encrypted file on a variety of websites and mirrors that can be downloaded, and he's said he'd left instructions for the password for that file to be released to the public in the event he's arrested by U.S. authorities.
