Kirsters Baish| It looks like things are about to be shaken up a bit. Senator Rand Paul has an offer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Senator Paul wants Assange to testify, claiming that the WikiLeaks found knows important information about Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails. Paul is aware, however, that it isn’t likely that Assange will testify without being offered immunity.
It’s more than likely that the Democrats are not going to be thrilled about this one and are going to block Assange from getting immunity.
The Democrats want all traces of proof linking to the hacked emails gone, because all it would do is open up another case that they don’t need. Assange has given hints numerous times that the emails never came from the Russians in the first place. He has also alluded to the fact that he believes that Seth Rich was the leaker, which is why he ended up dead.
If Russia isn’t guilty of the email hacking, this destroys the whole liberal narrative that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
If Assange is able to provide evidence to prove that Russia was not involved with the email hacking, this would mean that someone working inside the DNC or the Clinton campaign had created the entire collusion story.
According to steadfastandloyal:
“I think that he should be given immunity from prosecution in exchange for coming to the United States and testifying,” Senator Paul told the Gateway Pundit. “I think he’s been someone who has released a lot of information, and you can debate whether or not any of that has caused harm, but I think really he has information that is probably pertinent to the hacking of the Democratic emails that would be nice to hear.”
A letter was sent to Julian Assange by Democratic Senator Mark Warner. He asked Assange to testify. He did not mention immunity. He is aware that without immunity, Assange will not testify. If Assange does not testify, the Democrats will claim that he refused.
