    If the government has proof that "the Russians" stole the DNC emails and released them through Wikileaks, why haven't they indicted Assange for "collusion" to interfere in the 2016 election?

    Do you suppose the government's case against "Russia" is based on supposition and not on any hard evidence? That's my guess. They have proof the Russians hacked the network, and were on it when the emails were stolen, but none that they actually downloaded the emails and/or that they sent them to Assange. Considering that the NSA has archived all internet traffic logs, that part should be easy, right? So what's the hold up?

    Will the dimwitted ever learn that there is no such crime as “collusion”?

    Doubtful.

    Crikey. You also think there is a crime of “collusion”?

    Just some wingers, gathering around to yap about why Assange wasn’t charged for a crime that doesn’t exist. Makes sense to the Fox Noise crowd.

    ;-)

    Nope. I have been pointing it out for two years - there is no such crime as “collusion.”

    But where’s your analysis of why Assange was not charged with a crime that doesn’t exist?

    Except that "conspiring to influence the election" IS a federal crime:

    "The report further explains that a primary consideration for the Special Counsel's investigation was whether any Americans – including individuals associated with the Trump campaign – joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election, which would be a federal crime. The Special Counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. "

    So why has Assange not been indicted again? Poor low IQ Bugsy McDickless. Left wing moron. Lulz

    I did a whole thread about the actual legal issue, which is not “collusion.” Weigh in if you wish...

    Collusion is not a legal term. But collusion can undoubtedly fall under criminal conspiracy which IS a legal term. That's what Mueller was searching for. Per the Barr letter it is clear that efforts to work with the Russians to impact the election would be considered a federal crime. Did Assange do that or not? If he did, why has no one charged him?

    Just answer the questions for once you Goddamn gimp. Lulz.

    I obviously don’t know why Assange has not been charged, as we have not yet seen the Mueller report. Hopefully, Trump’s stooge Barr will release enough of the report for Americans to get the answers.

    But it is important to actually read the Mueller sentence fragment that is in Barr’s letter. It is very narrow language. Certainly not a declaration of “no collusion.” I did a thread on that topic...

    Extradition is under way. You don't know yet what Trump's DOJ may charge him with. They may avoid that charge to keep him from testifying about things Trump wants to avoid.

    All bets are off now that we have a Trump stooge in charge of the DOJ.

    Really? You think it completely unlikely that Trump's DOJ would avoid bringing up the whole conspiracy thing again? Trump has said it may be the Chinese, may be some guy in his mom's basement....He might not want to have Putin's part in this proven.
