  1. Ummmm……How many times did Trump reference Wikileaks with help of the Russia investigation? NUMEROUS!!!!!!!!

  2. Facebook: Fake account removal doubles in 6 months to 3B
    Looks like facebook is dumping their 3B backlog of fake Election Manipulation accounts.
    They must be expecting a visit of sorts😎 Forgot the URL https://www.apnews.com/d276ebdec5224398b9d70a6424bdee7b

  3. Wait till Assange opens the books about the "emails". Trump might not only shoot in his own foot, but in his own balls.

  4. President Obama used the espionage act 7 or 8 times to charge journalists, more than all previous presidents combined. Also, Donald Trump is garbage. A huge, steaming pile of it. He's made of mummified clown foreskin.

  5. Isn't it funny how Assange was public enemy #1 when Hillary hated him and the press were all over him, but now that Trump is prosecuting, they flip their story.

  6. Breaking NEWS Trump gives AG Bill Barr authorization to declassify any aspect of his investigation wow

  7. Assange is a media member? Never heard him referred to as that. Obama sure didn't consider him to be part of the media.

  8. Bet Assange wished he never helped and defended Trump and the fact that they are pursuing charges against Assange only proves all the more the guilt of Trump and his cronies…

  9. Assange backed the wrong horse trying to do dirty deals with Don Jr and now will pay the price. Such a shame.

  10. no nbc trump is not the first president to indict someone for hacking crimes, you disappoint me nbc, you used to have higher morale standards

  11. MSNBC isn't pro wikileaks their terrified they will be next as well they should be, traitorous scum.

  12. Was this not the guy that threw the Democratic Candidate Hilary Clinton’s under the bus? The same guy that was accused by the Democratic Candidate of working with the Russians? Now the Republican President Donald Trump tries to put this guy away, and Democrats are suddenly in an uproar, not calling Assange a spy, but a reporter. I’m all kinds of confused 🤷‍♀️

  13. All these news outlets act as if their power is unlimited. The First Amendment does not cover espionage. The First Amendment covers the Right to protest.

  14. MSNBC SUCKS

  15. Is MSNBC utterly incapable of telling the truth? https://freedom.press/news/obama-used-espionage-act-put-record-number-reporters-sources-jail-and-trump-could-be-even-worse/

    “Since I’ve been in office, my attitude has been zero tolerance for these kinds of leaks and speculation,” Obama said in June 2012. “Now we have mechanisms in place where, if we can root out folks who have leaked, they will suffer consequences. In some case, it’s criminal. These are criminal acts when they release information like this. And we will conduct thorough investigations, as we have in the past.”

  16. its NOT "free press" its LEFTIST Propaganda hew is cracking down on, which needs to be done with severe consequences because the degenerate left is a cancer.

  17. And how many times did the Obama Administration call for his extradition. He also has been targeted by politicians during the Obama Administration, calling that he should be assassinated while in a foreign embassy on foreign soil.

  18. That's because previous presidents didn't want to take on the press. There should be laws against making charges as though they were a fact – MSNBC & a few others do that constantly. Statements such as "Trump should be indicted." are an example – Indicted for WHAT? Saying mean things? MSNBC & some other Fake News media Act as though they are above the law. (They'd better get their ACT together or they'll go the same way as CNN. ) Re "press freedom" – Not even "the press" is free to tell lies. Assange has not told lies – If so, NAME THEM.

  19. Well, MSNBC, when you LIE like you do, as much as CBS and ABC, which you do, don't deny it, we the people have evidence, what do you think is going to happen.

  20. As for the fake news comment, that was directed at CNN, CBS, MSNBC, etc. And likely he will just pardon Assange after he gets done and here in America Assange can get better medical treatment for his chronic health issues, so this might actually work out in the positive for Assange.

  21. HOW DOES THIS PAY MY BILLS ? WHEN DO I GET A WAGE THAT PAYS THEM. RICH BABIES FIGHTING WITH RICH BABIES.

  22. HOW DOES THIS PAY MY BILLS ? WHEN DO I GET A WAGE THAT PAYS THEM. RICH BABIES FIGHTING WITH RICH BABIES.

  23. If he had not charged him MSNBC would have said it was further evidence of collusion. He can't win with these people.

  24. well at least it was for something good unlike Obama who did this https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/opinion/the-conversation/sd-before-trump-obama-prosecuted-leaks-20170804-htmlstory.html

  25. Trump is the enemy of the American people. Trump wants state run TV and the end of the free press. Fox propaganda fake news.

  26. Speaking of Indictments, I can't help but recall how Lawrence O'Donnell fawned over Michael Aveniti like a school girl, and now Avenatti has been indicted for being the low-life criminal that he is. Lawrence O'Donnell had already made t-shirts up saying "Avenatti For President." LMAO
    If any Journalist (so-called) had to be indicted, it should have been one of the many talking-heads on MSNBC. Just take your pick. They're all FAKE NEWS. Who actually listens to those liars? They have destroyed any faith the public had in the media. There should be indictments for sure.

  27. This is the first time the United States mainstream media has referred to wikileaks as "press"

  28. So basically Democrats support everything Trump opposes.

    Trump should come out against himself then every Democrat would vote Trump!👍

  29. Anyone that releases classified documents needs to be put in prison no matter what news station it is.

    Freedom of the press doesn't give you the right to violate the law.

    Remember all these Democrats hollering that nobody is above the law not even the president however they think they are.

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  30. Freedom of speech isn't spying, it isn't revealing secret government documents which undermines our nation. Freedom of speech isn't a license to commit treason. #TDS you folks are sick in the head and desperate.

  31. Scandal: Trump Administration first presidency to indict press for espionage.

    Stop calling everything a scandal. Mueller said no collusion.
    And is this premise true? Unfamiliar with the history of espionage indictments.

  32. If getting the truth involves guessing passwords, or stealing classified info, no thank you. Not doing a crime to report a crime. And the reliable source networks were unaware the info was stolen.

  33. So yeah, fake new is an enemy of the people. Indeed, and that makes FOX News an enemy of the people. Just saying…

  34. Whatever the merits of the case against him, you are really pushing it to suggest that Assange is a member of the press… Was, maybe but he has clearly done nothing which can be identified as Journalism for many years…

    Was the original conspiracy the get him above board? Probably not. Has he committed far more troubling crimes in relation to Russian espionage since? Arguably.

  35. This is not a press issue.  It is manipulating the press for Trump and Putin issue.  Wake up liberalism fools in your cult.  The free press is owned by the rich oligarchs, now it is by the Putin ones.  It's all about rich property owners against the American people.  People don't matter compared to property ownership.

  36. DICTATORSHIP ALL OVER by 2020 it will be IN FULL SWING ALL RIGHTS
    WILL BE GONE JUST WISH THE NEWS WOULD TELL IT LIKE IT IS and WHAT IS
    GOING DOWN and PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE EYES WIDE PEOPLE HAVE TO TUNE IN
    TO WHAT IS GOING DOWN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Look BACK IN TIME!!!!!! In 3/5 years YOU ALL will feel littlefingers cutting INTO YOUR FLESH, YOUR HOME, WORK What YOU BUY, HOW YOU LIVE, WHEN YOU have CHILDREN and What YOUR CHILDREN DO and HOW THEY LIVE YOU might SAY it can't HAPPEN LOOK INTO HISTORY OF how many TIMES THIS HAS COME INTO PLAY EYES WIDE PEOPLE TIME TO WORRY BIG TIME !!!!!!!!!!!!!! If YOU don't want to live LIKE this STAND-UP NOW THIS IS GOING ON NOT JUST IN THE USA BUT AROUND THE WORLD DUMP trump and HIS HUGGING BUDDIES OUT AND JAIL

  37. Yep Yep Yep… America is now a dictatorship / Banana Republic / Rogue state. Trump is planning to have people killed for Treason and now he is cracking down on the press. He has thrown out the constitution and is acting autonomously with now checks and balances allowed from the Dems, with the blessing of the GOP who will accept anything as long as they retain power. hmmm hmmmm I wonder if he has to leave the White House before his term is up or doesn't win the next election if Cohen's warning will come through…????

  38. why are MORE Media not talking about how Julian Assange Case are being used to
    TAKE AWAY THE 1st AMENDMENT??????????????????????

    Bow Down – ©2019 MFG – song one 2m31s @Qd6s

    – – Religion was founded in the ‘Glory of Wealth.’
    Bow down – Bow Down Everyone – Everyone must learn to bow.
    – – Money Changers – Speculators, tearing up the country
    Bow down – Bow Down Everyone – Everyone must learn to bow.
    – – Golden Calf on a 747
    Bow down – Bow Down Everyone – Everyone must learn to bow

  39. Lincoln also arrested journalists for espionage. This headline is fake news. Click bait. Also, Julian will be fine, I'm sure.

  40. Assange is just a self taught computer nerd, not someone trained as an editor or reporter. What do you expect? He won't think like a great editor or news paper man. He looks at it like a computer nerd: this is true, we are going to tell the truth.

  41. Julian Assange is a far-right extremists as Alex Jones that want to undermine democracy
    He maybe started with good intentions but when working with Trumps goons he show the World what hes intention was: Support Mr Trump!

  42. I wonder how much info Assang has on trump. Now is the time to disclose. Trump has pointed Assang as a criminal/enemy.

  43. Guy on the far left is wrong… Journalists don't just casually teach people how to hack into government databases to steal documents. Asking for info and teaching someone how to steal it is different.

  44. In real pain. They dont have 5th Ammendments in Every Nation. England or Sweden the child molestation arises. Barr is going to cause us severe problems I hope this does not flip all the way to their side. From the News today I see delusion only Joe is aware what Barrs declassification can mean, we have dirt, if course they have tons more

  45. Trump doj is trying to reduce the likelihood of someone leaking his taxes or the unredacted Mueller report, ECT. It's a saber rattle.

  46. I say Savage and NYT should in fact be seen as the same as Wikileaks after what I just heard him say. As journalists, do we get a pass to use cutouts and contractors to break in and steal, like maybe from the police and even DOJ? Why not DOD? How much are they asking to do a job?

  47. I wouldn't worry about assange, he has bargaining chips. nyt, msnbc, cnn et all have nothing to offer. Rachel and Chris tried and convicted for espionage? why yes. their social media handlers too.

  48. Does that mean Trump can be charged with espionage? When he promoted / requested the Russians to release the missing emails???

  49. Probably the only MSNBC video I've ever left a Like on. Finally they're starting to realize that this applies to ALL journalists in the free press especially while our country is under the Trump administration.

  50. It is ironic that the US government is charging a non-US citizen for breaking US laws when he took part in exposing horrific war crimes committed by the US military. The war crimes are apparently not a problem problem, but exposing them is. All that is separate from the fact that Trump LOVED Assange when the leaks supposedly helped him win the 2016 election.
