Trump Contradicts Himself on Assange


Trump Contradicts Himself on Assange –

Trump said the “dishonest media” is wrong in reporting that he agrees with Assange, adding that “the media lies to make it look like I am against ‘intelligence,’ when, in fact, I am a big fan.”



But those comments are in stark contrast to what he has said about Assange and the U.S. intelligence community’s findings that Russian agencies hacked Democratic Party officials and tried to influence the recent U.S. elections.

Trump has challenged those findings since news broke that numerous intelligence agencies concluded that Russia was behind the hacks.

During a brief moment with reporters on New Year’s Eve, Trump expressed skepticism about the intelligence community, The Wall Street Journal reported.
