The CIA is a hostile criminal organization that operates with no accountability; one that always lies, destroys leaders of nation stares and their regimes, runs the drug trade, and countless other criminal acts. They will pressure the current weak administration to get their way by any means available including assassinations if necessary. They don't fool around. As much as one is inclined, or not, to agree with Assange he has a right to publish information, good or bad. You then can make your own conclusions. The independent media will continue to be attacked as 'fake news' or worse just to keep folks from being informed of real facts instead of corporate/government propaganda as in the old Soviet days of total censorship in that nation. The easiest way to attack free speech is the censor the internet; the tools are already in place and an attack or Congressional ruling is all that's needed to stifle information. These are tough times indeed, keep vigilant and scream at your representatives to stop attacks on our Constitution.
