In an interview with RT’s Afshin Rattansi on Friday, WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange opened up about the coming email release acknowledging that the files will implicate the Clinton Foundation if not revive the case dropped by the FBI earlier this year into whether or not she mishandled US state secrets in her role as Secretary of State.
"Our view is that the evidence that the FBI already has is enough for a grand jury to indict," explained Assange. "It’s not hard. It is saying that a grand jury would indict a ham sandwich if you order it to, but the prosecutor has to ask the grand jury to indict and if the prosecutor doesn’t ask then the grand jury cannot indict."
Assange also pointed to Hillary Clinton’s relations with Saudi Arabia that have led to great angst among Israel, a country that now worries where her allegiances fall in the region. "[Her connection to Saudi Arabia] is extensive. The relations between Hillary and Saudi Arabia. The Clinton Foundation and Saudi Arabia," opined Assange. "Saudi Arabia is probably the single largest donor to the Clinton Foundation. You can see Hillary’s arms export policies where she was Secretary of State favoring Saudi Arabia extensively."
The whistleblower also blasted Clinton for her allegations that Trump is a secret Russian agent saying that "there is a much deeper connection between Hillary Clinton and Russia on record than there is with Donald Trump." Assange pointed to the fact that her top strategic consultant John Podesta sits on the board of a Russian connected fund and her pay-to-play activities with Moscow businessmen who would make donations to the Clinton Foundation and then miraculously receive State Department clearance to undertake business in the US.
Perhaps his most damning statements were Clinton’s financial links to radical Jihadist groups in the Middle East and the State Department’s policy of using Libya as conduit to get arms to Syria.
"The US government, at the time that Hillary Clinton was in charge of US foreign policy, did use Libya as a conduit to get arms to Jihadists in Syria," said Assange. "That is well established not just by a range of our materials, but also by the investigative work of Sy Hersh."
Assange also called into question links between Hillary Clinton’s former employer LaFarge, a cement company that the presidential candidate served on the board of directors for, which is now under investigation for contracting with the Daesh (known colloquially as ISIS) terror network in Syria.
"La Monde found that [LaFarge] paid ISIS/Daesh money, taxes if you will, for their operations in certain areas and they engaged in a variety of business deals," said Assange. "Hillary Clinton’s involvement is that money from LaFarge in 2015 and 2016 went to the Clinton Foundation. Why did it go to that foundation? There is a long-time connection between Hillary Clinton and La Farge because she used to be on the board."
