Julian Assange and Edward Snowden are bad guys, let’s stop pretending otherwise…

I don’t care that Wikileaks helped beat Hillary Clinton, doesn’t matter, Julian Assange is still terrible…

Former WVNN host Sean Hannity had it right in 2010

SEAN HANNITY: All right. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will make an appearance before a British judge tomorrow. Now the appearance is related to sexual assault charges that he’s facing in Sweden. Now this news comes just as there’s word that Assange is apparently not done waging his war against the U.S., at least not yet.

Revealing their identities, helping us and cooperating with us in our battle against the Taliban. These are real lives that are now in jeopardy and in danger. That was step one.

Then 390,000 other documents were released. Many of them classified documents. And now we have this. What is — why? Why didn’t they go after this guy and why didn’t they arrest him? Why didn’t they stop this from being published when we had so much time to do it?

Why can’t Obama do something about the WikiLeaks? We got this four months ago. You know, we can stop pirating a music and Hollywood movies, but we can’t stop this guy from stealing highly classified documents that puts people’s lives at risk?

Now he has a different view…

In a direct contrast to his previous criticism of Assange, in his September 6 interview, Hannity praised Assange for having “done a lot of good in what” Assange has “exposed,” saying that he “applaud[s]” Assange for exposing “how corrupt, dishonest, and phony our government is.” At the conclusion of the interview, Hannity told Assange, “I do hope you get free one day.”

That’s idiotic… He is still a guy who reckless endangered Americans. Period.

As National Review editor Rich Lowry explained in a POLITICO Magazine column, Assange unleashed in 2010 what the Defense Department dubbed “the largest leak of classified documents in its history” in regards to the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. According to Lowry, those leaks “potentially endangered U.S. allies in Afghanistan” and “the Taliban vowed to track down named U.S. informants.”

Through WikiLeaks, Assange also leaked a video of a “US helicopter shooting civilians in Iraq” and later on “five million confidential emails from US-based intelligence company Stratfor,” according to the BBC.

You can like what he did in 2016 and still view him as an enemy. Hannity forgot that.

As for Snowden, he is a serial liar and should be strung up when caught.

You can’t hate Hillary Clinton for what she did and praise these guys…
