Assange Tells Hannity: "Big Powerful Actors Want Revenge" - Full Interview

Tyler Durden's picture

As previewed yesterday, today at 10pm ET, WikiLeaks' Julian Assange would be interviewed by Fox News' Sean Hannity, in a wide ranging discussion touching most notably on whether or not Russia provided WikiLeaks the hacked Democratic emails - as pointed out yesterday, the answer was a "1000%" no.

For those who are unable, or unwilling to watch, Fox, here is a link to the full interview which will take place over the next hour, until 11pm ET.

Assange's concluding remarks were uncharacteristically emotional:

"I have been detained illegally, without charge for six years, without sunlight, lots of spies everywhere. It's tough... but that's the mission I set myself on. I understand the kind of game that's being played - big powerful actors will try and take's a different thing for my family - I have young children, under 10 years old, they didn't sign up for that... and I think that is fundamentally unjust... my family is innocent, they didn't sign up for that fight."

Full Interview below (starting at 49:08...)

Assange to mention ANYTHING about Israel in 5...4...3...2...

sinbad2's picture

Wikileaks publishes what it is given by leakers.

If you have some pet hate you want exposed, get the information and forward it to them.

Do it hope on a plane and sneak into Mossad, if you survive I will buy you a beer.

It'd be easier to sneak into Mossad than to get Assange, or Snowden, or Trump, or anyone to 'leak' anything about Israel...

Just waiting for the dirt on Rino Ryan and Bitch McConnell...

Israel needs no exposing. They are already known, well-established criminals.

No amount of further evidence would be able to influence those who aren't yet convinced.

Something fun to watch:

I hope he reveals the truth that Russian agents were responsible for Mariah Carey's failure to sing the other night and it's not due to the fact her voice is shot.

I dont watch TV, but dayum...i saw photos of what she was wearing.  She has been motorboated more than Lake Powell. 

YourAverageJoe's picture

Yeah, I gotta admit, even though she's 50lb overweight, she does wear those "fuck my ass to death" outfits pretty well...

Joe Davola's picture

She needs to stay out from in front of the camera, since the camera adds 10 pounds - and as Avg. pointed out:  there must have been at least 5 covering that stage.

Unless Ryan gets hip to this Russian-Clinton hacking fake news op...

he needs to be Cantor’d.

After all these years, Assange is talking now about revenge on his kids. Mm! Beginning to wonder whether he's part of the spy network.

The reality is, hacking anybody is pretty easy, especially since most people don't use a secured connection when they go online. Your data is at risk anyway. A VPN is the best protection, see this guide:

I don't think the camera adds 10 lbs anymore.  I think the 10-lbs bit was due to the curvature of cathode ray tubes.  Everyone has flatscreens now.

Julian Assange. A Man for All Seasons. Pray for him, and be thankful for all he does.

When is Hannity interviewing Tupac?

John McCain is no hero.

He was a moron at Annapolis and only got in because his daddy and grampa went there and were Admirals.

Johnny Boy was a poster child for spoiled brats with lousy academic records worming into high places.

Why is it that none of the media outlets cover his stupidity in the USS Forresstal disaster?

And he should never have been allowed into those fighter jets in the first place.

A real moron with high connections.

He got into the flight school over his instructors objections because daddy and grampa were bigshots.

Definitely need Dirt on Eddie Munster and the Turtle! They will turn into Trump's biggest roadblock.

hEY...ASSHOLE...what exactly would you like him to mention?


WikiLeaks is an information site.   Not an analysis site.


Assange is simply revealing documents and truth.  Just facts.


We are left to make meaning of it.  What the fuck is your point>>>>?


Do not try to deligitimitize Assange and Wikileaks with random points about Isreal.


It just makes you look like an idiot. 


The Russian-Isreali strategic relationship has recently become among the most important issues in the world.


So do you have anything to say?  Let's hear it.

Wikileaks has done a lot of good but do ye all not think that... is highly significant that Assange will not release documents relating to Israel's obvious involvment in 911??

I would say that they were without doubt - the primary actors in that unforgivable atrocity. It is not without precedent either. Israel has murdered U.S citizens in false flags before - think USS liberty for instance.

The grotesque reprecussions of 911 has to this very day, shaped US foreign policy that has led to disatrous wars in the Middle East with the loss of millions of lives and individual liberties for citizens around the world.

Makes me think that wikileaks is a tool to prevaricate, distract and cover up Israel's evil crimes if anything.



Shockwave's picture

I think you missed his point. You assume he HAS documents about 911 and is refusing to release them, rather than the more probable theory that wikileaks does not have anything of the magnitude youre wanting.

His point was Assange only releases what hes given. If he doesnt hace access to it, he cant release it. We cant hold wikileaks accountable for protecting information when the only evidence is that "he hasnt release info on what I think is highly obvious"

" What about 9/11?


"I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud."

The Gun Is Good's picture

I wholeheartedly disagree with Assange's dismissive viewpoint on the 9/11 false flag, but he is entitled to his opinion. Someone else wondered if he might be part of a controlled ops spy network. Who can say? Interestingly, he was in "The Family" cult in Australia as a youth, which many believe was an MK-Ultra / Project Monarch operation.

gatorengineer's picture

Anything that Assange gets is carefully screened, anyone that doesnt believe or think that is an idiot.

If he was as altruist as he says he would pass it through immediately upon reciept, layoff the hype, and get the info out.

Does someone believe that Ecuador would harbor him if it was explicitly told to and in some manner compensated for it?

MsCreant's picture

They would need to have something new or leaked to release regarding the topic. I don't know that they do or don't.

TheMeatTrapper's picture

The willingness for some people to criticize the efforts of others, who have placed themselves in harms way and made tremendous sacrifices while they themselves sit on their fat ass and do nothing never ceases to amaze me.

You are truly useless.

So Hannity wanted him arrested and now is kissing his ass.. Wow.

EDIT: best hour I've spent in some time watching that interview. Told bad the MSM won't ever let the truth get out. The constant, unmitigated war on truth is what should be scaring the shit out of all of us.

Jim in MN's picture

We are not scared.

We are winning.

gatorengineer's picture

What exactly do you think you are winning?, and where do you claim the "truth" is comming out?

GunnerySgtHartman's picture

Hannity said yesterday that he has two hours of interview footage he'd like to put on TV but can't, due to time constraints.  I'd like to see him put the whole thing, uncut, on his website.  That would be good to watch.

bh2's picture

I think the reason for that came when Hannity said he'd spent 30 years suspecting corrupt behavior and collusion going on but was shocked by the WL disclosures to see how wide and deep it ran.

I actually have to credit Hannity, well known as a right-wing partisan, for being willing to reconsider his estimation of Assaunge and the value of the WL mission as a pipeline to inform the American people about activites of the various satraps who wield power inside the Beltway.

Who knows? Maybe he'll fly out to interview Snowden, too.

Perhaps he'd be able to make FOX the only cable news platform advocating law-abiding transparency of government operations. The other MSM would, of course, go completely bonkers. But he is one of the few talking heads who could carry it off without being accused by the other MSM of being a Putin stooge.

Hope springs eternal. :)

 yeah, I think it'd be just as likely that they glen beck him

beck's shows on the fedres were good, until they started putting something in his water and made him into the sniveling embarrassment he is today.

Exactly. Beck was hammering Soros every night. They must have explained to him what they were going to do to his kids.

snowden's not a real person !!!!!

WillyGroper's picture

i see fox trying to salvage murdicks biz model after folks have finally recognized their web of lies & eventual total irrelevance.

remember rebecca whatserface's skullduggery?  what happened with that?  nuffin.

so fox is now going to be this bastion of truthiness just like the right/left paradigm?  i don't think so.

the national enquirer is now the new york times & vice versa...same goes for fox.  catchy name, fox.

i'll be pilloried for this, but here goes.  anyone with 2 synapses firing knows the perps of 911, uss liberty,

we know how IsRaHell came about & by whom.  does anyone think those same rulers give 1 whit if it's blown to kingdomcome?  at least 1/2 of the population are as captured as we are & do not go along w/political zios.  very unpopular opinion here for those that like to paint broad swaths.

check out Marianne Azizi's work.  then think back to albert pike's statement on ww3.

imo, to want IsRaHell wiped off the map will surely amount to our demise with it.  i've no doubt the destruction of the dome of the rock will unleash hells fury as stated in the end game of pike.  all one has to do is look at the financing/infiltration of the mercs & by whom.

the only religion i'm against is satanism/luciferianism.  organized religion is part of the unholy trinity of control.  with the known importation of these mercs & the training camps in place in the ussa, tells me the chess pieces are in place for pikes endgame. 

for those with eyes to see, it's not 1 group pitted against's humanity against evil regardless of your chosen flavor of predjudice.  division expedites the endgame.

same as it ever was.


Dudeskis's picture

Hannity admitted that he was caught up in the fervor of the post 9/11 world when he called for Julian to be arrested. Since then he's evolved his stance and sees corrupt politicians on both sides are the greater threat. In that change of perspective he now sees Wikileaks as necessary to fight back against authoritarianism.

I think it's very reasonable and logical. Plus at his age to admit you were wrong and be able to evolve opinion based on evidence is an asset.

Hannity wants ratings and money.

Cluster_Frak's picture

Assange stop talking and start revealing already.

sleigher's picture

Assuming it is actually him in the interview, he is not going to reveal anything in it other than questions raised by Hannity about Russian hacking.  This is either them forcing a belief in proof of life or fighting the Russian hacking claim.


I would like to see the full, un-edited interview.

He says "ahh" like a million times?

So what's your point?


Do you need a coiffed meterosexual talking head, reading material off a teleprompter before you will believe what is being said?


Do you speak perfectly in all of your televised interviews that millions of people watch?
