Donald Trump no longer loves WikiLeaks. In fact, the president so expressively does not love the organization that he endorsed the idea of arresting founder Julian Assange on Friday. Which is weird because Trump literally announced, “I love WikiLeaks” at a rally in October. Trump now swears the world misunderstood him.
Filmmaker Laura Poitras has been documenting Julian Assange’s exploits for six years. In that time, the Wikileaks founder has gone from liberal darling to Sarah Palin’s favorite rootin’-tootin’-techy-guy. Now, Poitras has reached a point that she feels the story can be told and she’s released a trailer for her new…
On Tuesday March 14th, a group of former and inactive Mormons—who have leaked dozens of internal documents exposing the inner workings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—sent a legal letter to the LDS Church warning that MormonLeaks has no intention of ending their crusade for transparency.
It’s easy to call Julian Assange a big, bratty man-baby. Much to the world’s dismay, however, the WikiLeaks founder is doing things a little bit differently with his recent disclosure of CIA hacking documents. Assange is actually being kind of helpful.
There isn’t much funny about the CIA’s covert hacking operations or the WikiLeaks dump that put thousands of documents about them on the internet on Tuesday. Some of the secret code names for these operations are pretty funny, though. Those spooks at Langley must have a sense of humor.
Here we go again, gumshoes. WikiLeaks (read: Julian Assange) says it acquired a massive cache of CIA documents related to the agency’s cyberwar efforts. The information therein, WikiLeaks claims, reveals covert CIA hacking tools that can take over iPhones, Android phones, TVs, and pretty much any type of computer.…
Ecuador’s foremost pain in the ass can finally stop tweeting in the third person as @Wikileaks, as he’s been doing since 2008. Lets give a hearty (if perplexed) congrats to Julian Assange for “joining” Twitter.
Ecuador is extremely ready for its adult son and growing annoyance, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, to move of out of the country’s London embassy—like as soon as possible.
Julian Assange has shown himself to be a huge fucking idiot over and over again. But he really outdid himself this time, all while screaming “I’m not an idiot!” on Australian TV today.
Early this morning, WikiLeaks tweeted and then deleted a strange message that appeared to be a mistake. But the bizarre tweet wasn’t about secret government documents or even a link to hardcore porn. It was something much weirder: A link to an ad for the Ford Raptor pickup truck.
After Wikileaks spent most of the election focusing on revealing emails from Hillary Clinton and her constituents, the organization has taken a sudden interest in the guy who now sits in the oval office. On Sunday, the Julian Assange-led organization invited its followers to leak Trump’s tax returns to them—which…
As Gizmodo reported last night, Julian Assange appeared ready to make good on a promise to extradite himself to the United States—a country which has not publicly charged him with any crimes—following clemency for Chelsea Manning. Less than 24 hours later, Wikileaks’s bullshitter-in-chief is weaseling out of a deal no…
The news that President Obama has commuted Chelsea Manning’s sentence—with her release slated for May of this year instead of 2045—is a huge relief to many. A major exception to that is Julian Assange, who managed to trip on his own dick in a big way.
In a characteristically desperate move, the Wikileaks Task Force tweeted out that the organization nobly devoted to making private documents public is looking to create “an online database with all ‘verified’ twitter accounts & their family/job/financial/housing relationships.” This feels desperate.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange released a statement about the US election on Tuesday, defending his organization’s decision to post thousands of emails from the Democratic National Party’s senior officials during the height of the US presidential election season.
Ecuador is officially fed up with Julian Assange.
On Sunday, the New York Times published a seemingly routine report about Obama’s cyber offensive strategy. Hiding halfway down the page, however, there are some fascinating details about the decision-making process behind a potential US cyber retaliation against Russia.
Here’s the latest gem from the Wikileaks dump of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s private correspondence. According a newly leaked email, one close Clinton ally was so alarmed by the revelation that the former Secretary of State used a private email server, she characterized the situation as “fucking…
