Hillary Clinton Says Julian Assange ‘Has to Answer for What He Has Done’

The arrest of WikiLeak’s founder Julian Assange…????...looking quite different to when he first took refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy seven years ago, drew a big reaction.????For those directly affected by the group’s publication of classified information, it must have been an interesting moment????Speaking at an event with her husband, Bill, Hillary Clinton weighed in on Assange being taken into custody????According to the Associated Press, Clinton said “The bottom line is that he has to answer for what he has done, at least as it has been charged.”????His outfit’s email dump of Democratic emails ahead of the 2016 election is not part of Assange’s charges…????...but rather conspiring to break into a classified Pentagon computer with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning.????In the lead up to the election, Donald Trump praised the work of WikiLeaks which ultimately became one of the major factors in his victory.????However his reaction to Assange arrest was different, telling reporters “I know nothing about WikiLeaks.

It’s not my thing.”????The AP reports that Clinton added on Assange’s extradition “I do think it’s a little ironic that he’s the only foreigner this administration would welcome to the United States.”
