Despite all of the opposition that WikiLeaks has faced from Democrats and the U.S. government, the former secretary of state “destroyed herself” in her attempts to destroy WikiLeaks, its founder Julian Assange said in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
“Hillary Clinton denounced us and said we were an attack on the entire ‘international community’. We kept publishing.
“Clinton and the network around her imprisoned one of our alleged sources, Chelsea Manning, for 35 years, and tortured her according to the United Nations, in order to implicate me personally.
“She was the chief proponent and the architect of the war against Libya. It is clear that she pursued this war as a staging effort for her presidential bid.
“It wasn’t even a war for an ideological purpose. This war ended up producing the refugee crisis in Europe, changing the political colour of Europe, killing more than 40,000 people within a year in Libya, while the arms from Libya went to Mali and other places, boosting or causing civil wars, including the Syrian catastrophe.” — Chris Enloe, The Blaze, Dec. 25, 2016
