On Monday the former US ambassador to Russia went after Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
Michael McFaul said WikiLeaks is “a foreign agent, supported by Russia, publishing stolen data.”
There is no demonstrable connection between Russia and WikiLeaks. For the US government and the establishment media, this isn’t a problem. Now that the Russian espionage mantra has been hammered on for a few weeks, the media considers it gospel truth.
WikiLeaks responded to McFaul’s tweet and defended the organization. McFaul then insinuated WikiLeaks works for Trump and the Republicans.
He then switched back to the Russian espionage mantra and said WikiLeaks is on the payroll of Putin’s intelligence service.
It turns out the spat is personal.
The tweets go on like that as McFaul responds to criticism and continues his tirade against Assange and WikiLeaks.
If anything the exchange provides a glimpse of the mindset of Obama’s former Russian ambassador, and Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director of Russian and Eurasian Affairs at the National Security Council.
