Is Julian Assange hacking Donald Trump's tax returns, and don't you really want him to? Since the fallout from the DNC leak, it's been on top of everyone's mind. It's also what everyone seems to secretly want. The DNC fallout has been vast, while Trump appears unscathed. Since Assange has been leaking information that directly impacts Clinton's campaign, many people question if Assange secretly wants Trump to be elected. Assange has denied the claim and revealed he and Wikileaks are working on hacking into Trump's taxes.

Julian Assange is the editor of the whistleblower site Wikileaks. He appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and to say things were a little heated is a bit of an understatement. Maher really laid into Assange and pressed the question if he was in fact in cahoots with Russia. You can see the full video of Assange's interview with Maher below. It appears no one really wants to accept the fact that the DNC leaks do prove the committee was slanting media coverage in Hillary Clinton's favor and wants to focus on how it benefits Russia if Trump or someone else is president. Again, Assange kept his source secret, but reminded the public that the real source of the DNC leak was the DNC. It's not like Russia was making up emails and planting them in computers somewhere.

It appears people are overlooking what the DNC did to Bernie Sanders and are viewing Hillary Clinton as a victim of Russia's wrath and Assange's assumed hatred of her. Many Democrats are overlooking the emails entirely, not reading them and are choosing to ignore or understate their content. It appears many news outlets are presenting the DNC leak the same way. It seems no one is as thrilled with the leak as Donald Trump, Assange and possibly Putin.

"I'm super happy with how that's gone. We've had four people here in the DNC resign, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz the head, the chief financial officer, the communications director Luis Miranda. And that shows a kind of instant accountability. Perhaps not proper political accountability for a really quite concerted effort for the chain of command at the DNC, to make sure that Bernie Sanders didn't win by pumping out black PR."
"Well, I don't know if that's really true. I mean, I read those emails. There was no smoking gun."
"Well, I know that it's true. Communications director Luis Miranda who has resigned just three days ago instructed his staff– instruction, not a discussion– to pump out, quote, in an unattributable manner, statements and an article saying that Bernie Sanders supporters were engaged in acts of violence."

Bill Maher then asked Assange about Donald Trump's campaign.

"Why haven't we seen anything hacked from the Trump campaign, I mean obviously we know these came from Russia and we also know that you do not like Hillary Clinton at all, as does not Vladimir Putin. So it looks like you are working with a bad actor Russia to put your thumb on the scale and basically f*ck with the one person who stands in the way of us being ruled by Donald Trump."

"We did not publish full credit card numbers about donors. It's the last four digits, just like your 7-11 receipt. It's very important for tracking money laundering and there are serious allegations about money laundering and SEC violations (unintelligible). Our materials that we release are pristine. We're really good at this. We have a 10-year, perfect record of having never got it wrong in relation to the integrity of what we've released. There's no allegation, not even from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz or any of these people. The materials are completely valid and true.

"What there is, is a conflation between our publications of DNC leaks and an extensive variety of hacks of the DNC and frankly other organizations over the last two years. Possibly by state actors, that wouldn't be at all surprising."

"But, we know the source of the material right? Everyone knows the source of what we published. The source is the Democratic Party. The source is Luis Miranda, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, etc. etc."
"So why don't you hack into Donald Trump's tax returns?"

Julian Assange looked into the camera and replied.

"Well, we're working on it."

So will Julian Assange release Donald Trump's tax returns soon? Is his promotion of Jill Stein at the Green Party going to help people realize there are more than two candidates running for president? Will there continue to be more fallout surrounding the DNC leaks, or are people brushing it off as a personal vendetta?

What do you think? Do you want to see Julian Assange hack Donald Trump's tax returns?
