Pamela Anderson has come to Julian Assange’s defense.
Critics of the Wikileaks founder assert that Assange helped Russia meddle in the 2016 presidential elections.
She described the “whole saga of ‘foreign intervention’” as “fundamentally absurd.”
In a Daily Beast op-ed, Anderson declared that “The elections have neither been rigged, nor have voters been intimidated or deceived by misinformation.”
Anderson continued, “The only thing that happened is that the disclosure of true information about a candidate‘s character and conduct hurt her campaign and may well have caused her defeat. So what? That’s democracy.” In this case, Anderson was referring to Hilary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
The actress then brought up the Mueller Report.
So you say the Mueller Report proves Julian guilty? Well, then let’s talk about it: The report does not claim that Julian hacked the [Democratic National Committee]. It only says that he sought to ‘obscure’ his sources, as any serious journalist would do, and to ‘release’ information at times that were beneficial to the Trump campaign.
Anderson also pointed out the obvious that this was an election after all.
Oh well, too bad for Hillary that there were two sides to this election and that some people wanted someone else to win! Now isn’t this the nature of any election, except those designed to confirm dictators, autocrats and others feeling ‘entitled’ to positions of power?
Anderson defends Assange’s journalist credentials and declared that he shouldn’t be “persecuted and jailed” for revealing “the truth” about Clinton.
The former model wrote, “While Julian may have influenced the election, he certainly has not interfered with it.”
She emphasized that Clinton’s failure in 2016 was all her doing.
Hillary lost the election herself, simply because the Electoral College resulted in a majority for Trump. And if you believe the culprits were Russian hackers, well then sort it out with the Kremlin, but keep your hands off our freedom of the press!
The former Baywatch star has been a staunch supporter of Assange. She called him one of her “favorite people” in 2017.
The WikiLeaks founder is serving a 50-week prison sentence right now in London for skipping bail in 2012.
The U.S. has filed charges against Assange for allegedly conspiring to hack into computers with the help of Chelsea Manning, a former Army private and intelligence analyst.
Establishment neoconservative and neoliberals praised Assange’s arrest in April, and now want him to be extradited to the United States to face justice.
