On Wednesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” House Speaker Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) said Wikileaks Founder and Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange is “a sycophant for Russia.” Ryan responded to a question on whether the president-elect should be quoting Assange by stating that “the last thing I’m going to do is start commenting on every little tweet or Facebook post. That is just not what I do with the president-elect, or when he’s president.” Ryan added, “I think he has not received his Russia briefing yet. I believe that’s schedule for Friday. So, hopefully, he’ll get up to speed on what has been happening and what Russia has or has not done, and he’ll be better informed on that.” Ryan then stated his opinion of Assange, which is that Assange is “a sycophant for Russia. He leaks. He steals data and compromises national security.” Sorry Paul Ryan but Assange and Wikileaks do not steal data, because the data or documents Wikileaks releases...Is simply due to poor internet security on the end of those who write the documents and emails. The information that Wikileaks has received over the years is information obtained because of affected parties own stupidity while on the internet. Hey Paul maybe if certain people don't want their information or emails leaked to the world, maybe the publisher of those emails and documents shouldn't release them online. Maybe these affected parties having problems with Wikileaks gaining their information should start doing what President Trump wants to do with sensitive matierial, instead of trading documents over the internet maybe they should use a courier for sensitive information. You know just to piss off establishment shills in Washington like Paul Ryan, when Trump takes over the Oval Office...President Trump should imediately pardon Julian Assange. Maybe Paul Ryan is labeling Assange with fake alegations, because even Paul Ryan was exposed himself as having connections to Hillary Clinton through the Wikileaks Podesta emails.
