Wikileaks owner, Julian Assange has revealed that Donald Trump would not be allowed to win the November 8 elections in an interview that will be broadcast on a Russian TV station, International Business Times is reporting.
The Australian hacktivist, who gave a 25-minute interview to John Pilger, said it would be impossible for Trump to get the nod into the White House because he did not have any support from any major establishments. The 45-year-old dismissed allegations that he was a stooge for the Russian government and trying to steer the elections in favor of Republican Party nominee.
“Trump would not be permitted to win…Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment. Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, media owners and journalists are all united behind Hillary Clinton.”
Assange also revealed that the same shadowy figures that funded the Islamic State had also contributed to Hillary Clinton’s foundation.
In the email, dated from 2014, the Wikileaks founders claimed that the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia had been funding the terrorist group and not rogue oil royalty as the world had been made to believe.
“All serious analysts know, and even the U.S. government has agreed, that some Saudi figures have been supporting IS and funding IS, but the dodge has always been it is some ‘rogue’ princes using their oil money to do whatever they like, but actually the government disapproves…the email says it is the government of Saudi Arabia and the government of Qatar that have been funding IS.”
The Australian has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for four years over fears that he could be extradited back to the United States. He is also wanted by Swedish authorities to answer to 2010 rape allegations. Julian Assange revealed that he intercepted the document sent by the Secretary of State to John Podesta, who was an adviser to President Barack Obama at that time.
The website owner said President Obama was pressured to resort to strong-arm tactics and deal with the governments that were providing “clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups.”
Assange said it was the most important email in his collection of hacked emails. The 45-year-old said that the email had been independently verified; a reminder of their 10-year unblemished record when it came to leaking classified documents.
The whistleblower revealed that the Democratic Party nominee hid the truth from Americans about the large-scale transactions the U.S. conducted with her Middle Eastern friends. The 45-year-old said Clinton brokered the biggest arms deal in the world with Saudi Arabia, an ally of ISIS, for $80 billion.
Wikileaks has released over 50,000 emails showing the innards of the Clinton campaign in a build-up to the U.S. elections. The first set of emails revealed that Democratic Party leaders favored the nomination of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders and worked behind the scenes to defeat him.
Donald Trump has been telling his supporters that the elections would be tilted in favor of Hillary Clinton and warning Republican voters to keep their eyes peeled for electoral fraud in areas with a heavy Democratic Party presence.
Democrats are worried that this move could encourage Trump supporters to intimidate minority voters in areas that he has no chance of winning. Party supporters have launched a legal initiative to ensure that Trump’s efforts to have supporters watch the polling places in four battleground states, including Pennsylvania, are challenged as a violation of federal law.
