WikiLeaks founder reveals that evidence of Hillary's perjury before Congress already in public database

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange revealed in an interview with Juan Gonzalez and Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! that among 50,000 pages of documents placed in his organization's searchable public database is plenty of evidence that Hillary Clinton committed perjury before Congress when she testified that she knew nothing about weapons being shipped from Libya to other Middle Eastern countries.

"Those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office. ... For example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails. There’s more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection, that we have released, just about Libya alone," Assange says in the video-recorded interview below.

That directly contradicts Mrs. Clinton's testimony before Congress that WikiLeaks4.jpgbegins at the 2:00 mark of the video below. There the Democratic nominee for president acts totally clueless about any plan to send arms from Libya to Turkey, which then made their way to Syria. In response to a question by Rand Paul, she declared that she knew nothing of such a effort. Clearly no such plan could not have been implemented without her approval, and Assange says proof of her involvement is available to the public in searchable database.

Do not mistake this as some partisan effort on Assange's part. To the contrary, in a separate part of his interview with Gonzalez, he says he does not personally support either of the top candidates for president (See "You’re asking me, do I prefer cholera or gonorrhea?” Assange said.

The WikiLeaks founder feels his organization's mission is to expose the hypocritical, illegal, unethical conduct of governments and government officials.

"WikiLeaks has become the rebel library of Alexandria. It is the single most significant collection of information that doesn’t exist elsewhere, in a searchable, accessible, citable form, about how modern institutions actually behave," he told Democracy Now! "And it’s gone on to set people free from prison, where documents have been used in their court cases; hold the CIA accountable for renditions programs; feed into election cycles, which have resulted in the termination of, in some case—or contributed to the termination of governments, in some cases, taken the heads of intelligence agencies, ministers of defense and so on. So, you know, our civilization can only be as good as our knowledge of what our civilization is. We can’t possibly hope to reform that which we do not understand."

WikiLeaks made public its searchable archive for over 30,000 emails and email attachments sent to and from Hillary Clinton’s private email server all the way back in March 2016. It included 50,000 pages of documents from June 2010 to August 2014. The State Department was forced to release the emails under the Freedom of Information Act.
