Ms. Clinton reportedly uttered these words during a State Department meeting focused on the impact of the release of a group of diplomatic cables from Wikileaks. State also reportedly discussed “legal and non-legal” ways of neutralizing Assange.
We have no horse in the presidential race. (Or any race.) There is crony capitalism all over. DNC, RNC, NBC, CBS, PBS, FOX, Washpo, The Times, Washington, New York, LA, – you get the point. But this leak from Wikileaks, no matter where it came from originally has exposed the inner workings, to some extent, of the American political beast and that is important and valuable for the American people.
Assange isn’t the only person reporting on this. We noted a few months ago that Erik Schmidt, the Chairman of Google actually founded a COMPANY whose sole goal is to get Hillary Clinton elected president. Below is the honest to goodness logo of this company, GROUNDWORK. It couldn’t be creepier.
