One of the confidential documents found on disgraced Democrat Anthony Weiner’s laptop sent while his former wife Huma Abedin was then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff is so disturbing in so many levels, most prominently in the implication that the Obama administration was directly involving in a conspiracy to silence WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. It can also serve as a smoking gun in another case of mishandled information which the FBI may have overlooked before.
The said confidential document discloses that the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden expressed concerns in 2010 that WikiLeaks is planning to release then classified U.S. documents relevant to Sweden and just before the crucial Swedish September election then. There were concerns that the release of the confidential documents might tip the votes towards the Pirate Party.
Now it has been revealed that the subject of the cable reads: “WikiLeaks: The Pirate Party’s White Horse In Sweden’s Parliament?”
The document reveals that a U.S. diplomat met with three members of the Pirate Party on June 29, 2010. The Pirate Party is also described in the cable as a “mixture between communism and libertarianism” but whose members are “well-salaried professionals, independent of the party for income.” The report even says that two of the “pirates” were active in the “youth branch of the conservative party currently leading the government.”
The Embassy cable also says the party faces “grim electoral outlook” unless “WikiLeaks saves the day.” The U.S. diplomat is said to have confirmed that.
Then the “interesting” thing happened- two weeks after the cable was sent, an arrest warrant was issued for Assange on previous sexual assault allegations. The charges against Assange curiously have been dropped in the past, then re-issued, then revoked again by Swedish authorities in August 2015 when they dropped the case against him.
Parties within the Trump administration remain divided on what to do with Assange now. The DOJ seems bent on putting him in jail as they prepared criminal charges against Assange for the 2010 issues on leaks. Certain members of Congress, however, expressed their support for Assange especially since he exposed the collusion between U.S. intel community and the Democratic party.
