Julian Assange sat down with Democracy Now to discuss Wikileaks’ recent release of the DNC leak emails and his perspective on the looming election.
For WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, choosing between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is like choosing between two ugly diseases:
"Well, you’re asking me, do I prefer cholera or gonorrhea?"
"Personally, I would prefer neither."
Assange notes that the prospect of a Trump presidency is "completely unpredictable" but the Wikileaks' founder believes one thing is inevitable...
"Look, I think - you know, we know how politics works in the United States."
"Whoever, whatever political party gets into government is going to merge with the bureaucracy pretty damn fast. It will be in a position where it has some levers in its hand. And so, as a result, corporate lobbyists will move in to help control those levers. So it doesn't make much difference in the end."
