    Moreno claims that Assange ran ‘espionage agency’ from embassy with Correa’s blessing
    18 April, 2019

    President Lenin Moreno claims that Julian Assange was operating an “international espionage and computer terrorism center” in Ecuador’s British embassy. In a Wednesday interview with the BBC, Moreno also insists that former president Rafael Correa had full knowledge of Assange’s covert activities and allowed them to continue.

    President Lenin Moreno “During most of the previous administration, Julian Assange was able to conduct the work of WikiLeaks from the embassy with no interference and with full knowledge of officials,” Moreno said. “This was in clear violation of his agreement to observe behavior compatible with the will of the Ecuadorian government.”

    In another interview Wednesday, Moreno claimed that the press was emphasizing Assange’s disruptive behavior and poor hygiene as the reason for his expulsion from the embassy last week. “We made clear that this was only one of the reasons for our decision to end his asylum,” Moreno said. “The more important reasons were his interference in the affairs of other countries. From the beginning, he was warned against this and he ignored the warnings.”

    According to Moreno, Correa personally advised Assange to end his “illegal” work. “This happened in the case of his [Assange’s] support of the Catalonian rebellion as well as with interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.”

    Moreno disputed WikiLeaks’ claim that Assange was not in control of the group’s activity during his asylum. “This is not true and we have clear evidence that he continued to operate the organization and the previous government was complicit in allowing this to happen.”

    The president added that Ecuadorian government agencies have suffered 50 to 60 million internet hacking attempts since Assange left the embassy. “Obviously, WikiLeaks and its criminal supporters are hard at work to punish Ecuador for its decision. Fortunately, most of their attempts have not been successful.

    Moreno bears the appearance of a man who is trapped in his choices. Just my impression of the photograph of him (prior post).

    THE DESTRUCTION OF JULIAN ASSANGE. Richard Dolan: The Big Picture.
    Richard Dolan
    Streamed live on Apr 13, 2019

    "Julian Assange is one of the most important journalists in history. The information that has been revealed via Wikileaks has become part of humanity's shared heritage of freedom of information. His organization's track record of accuracy has been impeccable, far more accurate than the dishonest legacy/corporate/mainstream/establishment media has ever been. For this reason, Assange has been in the crosshairs of the American national security state for a long time. Now it appears they have him. This is one more battle in the long war to roll back the freedom of information people have won since the creation of the Internet. "

    You guys should check out what the Mueller report says about Assange and Wikileaks.

    Page 58, which is almost entirely redacted, says the following:

    Quote On October 7, 2016, four days after the Assange press conferece [REDACTED], the Washington Post published an Access Hollywood video that captured comments by candidate Trump some years earlier and that was expected to adversely affect the Campaign. Less than an hour after the video's publication, WikiLeaks released the first set of emails stolen by the GRU from the account of Clinton Campaign chairman John Podesta.
    Almost the entire rest of the page is redacted with "Harm to Ongoing Matter" cited as the reason for redaction. That means legal action is still being pursued in regards to Wikileaks' role in the 2016 election. And Mueller's report is alleging that Russia was the source of Podesta's emails.

    That means that, regardless of Trump, Mueller's investigation is targeting Wikileaks-related interference in the 2016 election as if it is equivalent to Russian interference, and accusing Wikileaks of releasing emails "stolen" by the Russian GRU.

    If and when Assange is extradited to the US, he may very well have additional charges filed against him from Mueller's investigation, and be forced to testify in a court of law in regards to this issue. The redactions and their explanation ("harm to ongoing matter") support this idea.


    Edit: I confused the DNC emails with Podesta's emails. Assange basically already told us that the DNC emails came from Seth Rich, but I'm not sure if a specific source for Podesta's emails was ever given.

    Whereas the analysis of the Hillary Clinton doubles was very impressive, I think it is better to conclude that it is Assange that was taken out of the Ecuadorian embassy. And like investigative journalist Jim Stone admit to "eating crow" ( I regulary learn new english expressions :-) ) for heralding since years that Assange is dead.[/QUOTE]

    Jim Stone is at it again saying Assange may have been abducted, drugged and brainwashed October 16/17 2016. And put back in the embassy. Where it is known that such evil techniques exist and can work depending on the mind of the victim , this theory seems farfetched again. If is apparently not true because Assange kept on reporting and voicing support for the Catalan independence fight. He should have abstained from interfering with that later cause knowing that diplomatic problems would erupt between Ecuador and Madrid if he did that from their embassy. A pity that Jim Stone goes directly to sensationalist conclusions lessening his credibility where he has such an impressive ability for technical analysis of events.

    To be complete here is a website that denies Assange called for the independence of Catalonia but I could not study yet.
