WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange came to the rescue of embattled White House senior adviser to the Middle East and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner amidst unconfirmed mainstream media reports that Ivanka’s husband attempted to create a secret backchannel between the Trump campaign team and Russia.
In defense of Kushner, Assange tweeted: “Kushner's correct to create channels with everyone. CIA has no authority over leadership and is financially motivated to increase conflict.”
The liberal media has been reporting that Kushner supposedly spoke with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the U.S., in December about establishing a secret communications channels at Russian diplomatic facilities where American intelligence officials would not be able to pick up the private discussions.
The mainstream media further reported that on at least three occasions during or after the presidential campaign, Kushner was unable to disclose his supposed communication with Kislyak. Kushner’s attorney has spoken on the issue and said that the White House senior adviser has “no recollection” of the alleged calls with Kislyak.
WikiLeaks published thousands of emails during the U.S. presidential campaign last year that were hacked from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta. WikiLeaks denied the allegations that Russia was their source for the email leaks. Clinton has consistently blamed the leaks as one of the factors for her humiliating loss to Donald Trump as part of Russian interference in the U.S. election, along with fake news and former FBI Director James Comey.
Assange also posted another message on Twitter and said: “If we are to ever have peace, Trump should create Office of Leadership Engagement and cut out all bureaucracies that benefit from conflict.” He also slammed CIA anew with another fresh tweet: “CIA/State has always tried to insert itself between leaders to arbitrage channel and prevent settlements which could reduce its power.”
