So he wanted Trump to pressure Australia to make him their ambassador to the U.S.

Trump can't even get a Republican congress in America to repeal Obamacare, let alone order the government of a foreign country to appoint a wanted fugitive as their ambassador.

Assange was either joking, or he has a seriously exaggerated idea of how powerful the POTUS is.

Always pays to read the whole article. Apparently, Assange didn't think that Australia actually would appoint him, but(if I'm reading it correctly) Trump's request would make Australia, the UK and Sweden treat Assange with more respect.

Still pretty bizarre of him to imagine that such a demand to Australia would have any effect besides making Trump look even more unbalanced.

I did read the whole article, VOTD. It is what he asked them to do. The strategy was in the next sentence, so yeah, I got that too.

I wasn't telling you to read the whole article. I was chastising myself for not doing so!

Very sorry for the misunderstanding. God, I must have sounded like an asshole there.

Gotcha, and no worries. It is the never-ending problem of online discourse. Kind of funny, because I also would never have guessed, though it makes sense now that you say it.

WikiLeaks faces U.S. probes into its 2016 election role and CIA leaks

Candidate Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr. and others in the Trump Organization received an email in September 2016 offering a decryption key and website address for hacked WikiLeaks documents, according to an email provided to congressional investigators.

Another CNN fake news 'bombshell' bites the dust. (Notice too, how the Babbler msm cult of believe-whatever-they-tell-you on Russia, Syria, Ukraine, Libya, etc never corrects their disinformation or smears once disclosed to be so). 

The Intercept: The US Media Yesterday Suffered Its Most Humilitating Debacle In Ages: Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened   -  by Glen Greenwald

https://t.co/KNYr91JZfh

"The spectacle began on Friday morning at 11:00 am EST, when 'The Most Trusted Name In News' spent 12 straight minutes on air flamboyantly hyping an exclusive bombshell report that seemed to prove that WikiLeaks, last September, had secretly offered the Trump campaign, even Donald Trump himself, special access to the DNC emails before they were published on the internet. As CNN sees the world, this would prove collusion between the Trump family and Wikileaks and, more importantly, between Trump and Russia, since the US intelligence community regards WikiLeaks as an 'arm of Russian intelligence,' and therefore, so does the US media..."

Reminds of the old commercial: Is it Donald Trump or Glenn Greenwald?  Hard to tell.

Did some babbler grab the wrong end of the stick and post an erroneous story and then not correct it?

Give us a link.  Or at least tell us which specific thread you're talking about.  Or, if you must, a specific babbler name.

Who was supposed to have corrected themself with regard to this?

Suggest you re-read #260/#261 again. Confusing Donald Trump with Glen Greenwald at the Intercept is a sure sign something has gone very, very wrong. Ditto tilting at 'Russian election-meddling' windmills that don't exist while  ignoring the Israeli elephant in the room. ..

"Chief moneybags for the Intercept - hi tech oligarch Pierre Omidyar - seeks to financially strangle wikileaks on behalf of Deep State."

voice of the damned

^ If I'm reading that correctly, Omidyar is the head of some private charity that has been giving money to wikileaks, and now they've decided they don't wanna do that anymore. Too bad for wikileaks, but this doesn't quite qualify as getting "strangled" by "the Deep State".

He also funded Greenwald's  The Intercept. Some suggest that is why only 1% of Ed Snowden's archive has thus far been released. He who pays the piper calls the tune. WL if it survives, can do without such influence.

Someone else can always pay the piper.  Think of it like a jukebox.

Not sure why money should be a factor in that at all. But there may be others.

Especially considering he has a history of being proprietary (and litigious) over stolen information he presumes to own.

"The British are quietly and secretly working with the Americans to make sure Julian is arrested and sent to United States for trial, which I think is a travesty,' Kiriakou said. Judging by Trump's first year in office, I think he has been following in the footsteps of Barack Obama in his crusade against whistleblowers, he added..."
