CNN publishes disgusting smear article on Assange and his “election meddling”

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss CNN’s latest attempt to discredit and smear Julian Assange with assertions that Assange set up a command center in the Ecuador embassy where he coordinated WikiLeaks to work in concert with Russia so as to meddle in U.S. elections in 2016. CNN reports as stated fact without providing any underlying evidence that while at the Ecuadorian embassy Julian Assange “smeared faeces on the walls out of anger.”

CNN makes no mention of Guccifer 2.0 data transfers, deliberately shifting away from Mueller’s ‘transfer of hacked documents’ claim, and refocusing attention towards ‘mysterious people entering’ the heavily surveilled Ecuador embassy, as the method with which Wikileaks obtained leaked emails and documents.
