The PEN America mission statement:

“With mounting threats to a free press and other cornerstones of our democracy, breakdowns in civil discourse, and the marginalization of important voices, PEN America has a vital role to play in defending free expression…”

So they’re attacking the world’s most important independent journalist who has been snatched and imprisoned and now is threatened with a number of charges by the Trump junta.

PEN’s only response is to promote bogus claims from CNN that are challenged for their groundless speculation and mischaracterizing of events.

DO NOT DONATE TO THIS MALIGNANT FRAUD OF AN ORGANIZATION.

Assange is caught up in these games. The government claims “Guccifer 2” was:

  1. A Russian intelligence person
  2. The supplier of the Clinton emails

Both these claims look like nonsense. Guccifer 2 was a fraud created to frame Assange. It’s long and it’s tiresome.

Mueller’s Own Report Undercuts Its Core Russia-Meddling Claims

 

 

More important, as Raffi Khatchadourian has reported for The New Yorker, the documents Guccifer 2.0 released directly were nowhere near the quality of the material published by WikiLeaks. For example, on June 18, Guccifer 2.0 released documents that it claimed were from the DNC, “but which were almost surely not,” Khatchadourian notes. Neither was the material Guccifer 2.0 teased as a “dossier on Hillary Clinton from DNC.” The material Guccifer 2.0 initially promoted in June also contained easily discoverable Russian metadata. The computer that created it was configured for the Russian language, and the username was “Felix Dzerzhinsky,” the Bolshevik-era founder of the first Soviet secret police.

WikiLeaks only made contact with Guccifer 2.0 after the latter publicly invited journalists “to send me their questions via Twitter Direct Messages.” And, more problematic given the central role the report assigned to Guccifer 2.0, there is no direct evidence that WikiLeaks actually released anything that Guccifer 2.0 provided. In a 2017 interview, Assange said he “didn’t publish” any material from that source because much of it had been published elsewhere and because “we didn’t have the resources to independently verify.”

..

Assange also made public offers to testify before Congress. The Mueller report makes no mention of these overtures, though it does cite and dismiss “media reports” that “Assange told a U.S. congressman that the DNC hack was an ‘inside job,’ and purported to have ‘physical proof’ that Russians did not give materials to Assange.”

Mueller does not explain why he included Assange’s comments as reported by media outlets in his report but decided not to speak with Assange directly, or ask to see his “physical proof,” during a two-year investigation.

Even the Washington Post (which I do not generally trust) is starting to shit itself in the face of blatant fascism.
