Wikileaks Offers To Hire James Comey

Tyler Durden's picture

In the aftermath of James Comey's termination, two of the most famous whistleblowers currently "in the wild" chimed in, and both were critical of Trump's decision. 

As we first discussed last night, shortly after the news of Comey's termination, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden (currently located in RYssia) accused the US administration of “political interference” for firing the FBI director.

However it was the second reaction from the "other" famous whistleblower, Julian Assange, that drew even more attention when he said that “WikiLeaks would be happy to consider hiring James Comey to help lead its DC office should he like to properly investigate the US government.”

Assange then said that according to an FBI the Bureau would now “start leaking like Niagara.” “But please, FBI friends, full docs or you know the press will spin it,” he added.

Assange also reminded his followers of President Clinton's firing of then-FBI chief William S Sessions in 1993 after he refused to resign on recommendation of the attorney general. Sessions, who was accused of ethical violations, was the only other FBI head to be fired and noted that “Mr. Comey knows where many bodies are buried."

Assange concluded his sales pitch as follows: “Working for WikiLeaks is fulfilling. James – don't become another lobbyist for Glock or Donkin."

"Drain the swamp."

Let it begin now in earnest with the Clintons.

Liberal thinking:

Trump was working for the Russians

Wikileaks was working for the Russians

Comey was investigating Trumps collusion with the Russians.

Comey was fired because he was getting too close to the truth.

Wikileaks offers to hire Comey....???

*brain explodes*

Millions of dollars in private law practice or... living in a shithole embassy the rest of your life while your former country weighs the pros and cons of "Can't we just drone the guy?".

I think I know what Comey's choice will be.

Wonder if Wikileaks will also employ the snowflake FBI agent who wept at the news

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Comey trying to lock Snowden up? Maybe Assange just wants whatever dirt he can get.

I'm surprised by Snowden's reaction but I think Assange was trolling Comey.

WILL NOBODY RID US OF THIS MEDDLESOME SPAMMER??!?

I think Mr. Assange forgot the /s

It's called the high road. Most don't know how to find the turn off for it.

Looks like Wikileaks might need a water boy.

Considering all the access to information Snowden has had he's still fuckin clueless (he thought Clinton had the election - nuff said). The 'investigation' of Russian ties by the FBI is like the war on terror, it will never end, so Comey gets to stay by default because of the 'ongoing investigation'? Give me a fuckin break already. Trump was pressured to keep him on, and then is required to keep him forever because of the 'investigation'.  Talk about a railroad. I like when Trump goes off-roading on these ass hats, it really sends the weak minded into hysteria.

The limited hangout guy who just confirmed a lot of shit that was already out there and stuck like glue to the official 9/11 story?  That guy?  What would someone still on the payroll say in this situation?

HumanMan's picture

I really believe Snowden has been away too long. So much has changed since he had to leave. I think his heart's in the right place but he really doesn't have much  direct exposure to what's happening over here. His comments would make more sense had these event occurred in the time when he was here, and in that political paradigm.

Perhaps, it's a good point.  Easy to forget how skewed things have become since - boiled frog syndrome probably.  That said I've never really trusted the situation to be just as we are told, especially when dealing with spooks.  I would expect whistleblowers to end up more like Brad Manning, comprehensively MKUltra'd rather than busy on twitter.  The Snowden story seemed riddled with cliches, more akin to a Bourne novel than real life.

Assange wants to hire Comey as his criminal defense attorney for the multiple felonies he will be charged with for being a Russian stooge.
I would do the same

Ghost of PartysOver's picture

Watching the MSM and Establishment Pols in total meltdown is absolutely hysterical.  You go Trump!

That barely audible sucking sound you hear is a small part of the swamp being drained.  CYA Comey!

Harry Quant's picture

Do this shit Trump! And then every time the dims say anything negative or attack him for going after cankles scream of their blatant racism! LOL

But, where would I send yearly rent for the mineral rights on BLM owned land?

On a serious note, how did the BLM acquire nearly all of the mineral rich land in the US?

sleigher's picture

"how did the BLM acquire nearly all of the mineral rich land in the US?"

The same way they acquired our biological property.  We let them...

StackShinyStuff's picture

Not that BLM.  The BLM that own no land. And read no books.

Assange is making a caricature of himself. He's not acting like a serious person here.

JRobby's picture

Not sure if you are seeing the enormity of the picture here?

Stooping to the tactics of "They", call them the left, call them what you want, is not the answer here. 

JRobby's picture

You know too little

Or, what is your real motivation here? Besides down voting anyone that disagrees with you.

thatthingcanfly's picture

That's what I thought. Hey ZHers! Here's another paranoid nut-job who watches too much Alex Jones and believes there's an ulterior motive to everything that happens or every statement made by everyone.

What's my real motivation here? Did it ever occur to you that my comment above regarding Assange making a caricature of himself meant nothing more than exactly what I wrote? Did it ever occur to you that there was maybe, just maybe, nothing between the lines for you to extract?

When the founder of an organization that advertises itself as a de facto enemy of National intelligence agencies poses a job opening for the recently fired head of one of those very intelligence agencies, he's not being a serious person.

That's all.

Nothing more.

I don't hate Assange. I don't hate Comey.

I DO hate it when idiots such as yourself assume way too much and read shit in between the lines that isn't even there.

JRobby's picture

I asked a simple question.

You chose to lie when "formulating" your answer, instead of just answering. To your credit, the lying is very well done.

I am not doing a running argument with you all day. I have things to do.

 

My comment from above concerning Assange:

"It's called the high road. Most don't know how to find the turn off for it."

Do you?

thatthingcanfly's picture

When you accuse someone else of lying, when that person is not lying, YOU are lying.

Maybe Comey didn't have time to download his 'insurance files' that would surely assist in draining the swamp.   That's why Trump fired him when he was so far away from DC.  But if he did - then Wiki would be interested!

"Assange is making a caricature of himself. He's not acting like a serious person here."

You're right - he should get out more - smell the flowers, walk in the sunshine, get a bit of perspective.

Oh.

Assange is reflecting British humor: dry wit and tongue in cheek.

Thanks for the offer Wiki, but I have me a cushy bank job waiting for me somewhere.

Betting Goldman but is that too obvious? So Chase or JP....or the corrupt attorney firms that represent the banksters.

He will be head of the Obama Foundation legal department since Hillary's has been winding down.

The challenge is: "Do you, Mr. Comey, really care about law enforcement? About the US Constitution? That is the challenge.

Thanks for the offer Wiki, but I have me a cushy bank job waiting for me somewhere.  Also, I have recently been diagnosed with a rare condition that leads to suicide and I believe joining your originization would aggravate the condition.

Cyanide pill in 5,4,3...then again these people are cowards so no chance.

Comey is not worthy of WikiLeaks.

He is not to be trusted and likes too much attention himself.

E.F. Mutton's picture

Agreed.

I'm thinking Taco Bell.  Maybe Roto-Rooter or Jiffy Lube.

I wonder if HSBC sock will now suffer w/out Comey as the top-law-dog?

falak pema's picture

Thats like Putin hiring Kasparov... haha! 

Keep your so called friends far away and your enemies close to you!

Apart from the fact that unlike Snowden Assange now has dirty sheets and... it was Snowden who pointed that out around the Hillary hack when he questioned the source of Assange's sources...alluding that Assange had crossed a red line...

Snowden is impeccable as for Assange there is now a dark cloud in the cloud of wikileaks gigabyte dumps.

Boogity's picture

The truth is the truth regardless of its source or whom it benefits. 

WRG to Snowden, he's obviously jealous because Assange shoved him off center stage.   

FoggyWorld's picture

I doubt sincerely that Snowden has had access to the many hearings where Comey made it clear that he just would never let the truth out.  Snowden really ought to stay out of this because he doesn't see what we have seen for months now.
