It seems political commentator Bill Maher has ignored the evidence and accused Julian Assange of working with the Russians and releasing the DNC hacked emails. Mr. Maher is clearly not a fan of Mr. Assange and attacked the whistleblower during his HBO show. Mr. Assange, no stranger to controversy, had his own bag-of-tricks and confronted Mr. Maher of another sort.
According to The Blaze:
Maher told Assange bluntly that it appears he is working with a “bad actor,” Russia, to take down Clinton, “the one person who stands in the way of us being ruled by Donald Trump.” He also asked why Wikileaks hasn’t targeted the Trump campaign’s emails.
After the audience’s applause died down, Assange shifted gears revealed he did a “little search” through their files and found an interesting item on a “William Maher.”
“I do notice that a William Maher gave a Clinton-affiliated entity $1 million,” Assange said. “Perhaps you would like to comment. Is that you?”
“I don’t think you have to look in your files to find that,” Maher replied sarcastically. “I gave Obama $1 million — I made it public. The whole point of it was to make it public so people in 2012 would understand that the game had moved to the million-dollar level after our Citizens’ United ruling.”
When Assange pressed Maher further, asking if there was another $1 million donation made to a Clinton group, the host replied, “F*** no.”
It’s interesting that many liberals like to attack those who reveal the truth. Apparently the facts get in the way of their narrative. Mr. Maher, who seemingly, portends to be an objective political pundit, is really just a Democratic hack seeking to further an agenda of entitlement and destruction.
It’s sad when heroes like Mr. Assange are attacked, even when they report 100% accurate information. More evidence of a ‘shoot-the-messenger’ culture rather than debating the content of the hacked emails.
