Am I in a world where people take Louise Mensch for anything other than an insane, uber privileged gobshite?
Which just further illustrates how nuanced discussion is not tolerated here, where a POC is banned for "defending racism" if he deviates slightly from the accepted views of the echo chamber.Why are people engaging with Clipjoint? He just came back from a ban for defending Bernie Sander's racist statements...
You already tried playing the victim last time and got banned.
Yeah some vague notion that Manafort met with Assange is pretty damn minor when the dude is already found guilty of a array of crimes; it's the type of evidence you use to show a pattern and all that but on it's own it's nothing compared to Roger Stone literally directing someone to get the leak from Assange.
Yeah I mean I saw the derail but still. This story is exactly what I would want from the story in the OP.Yeah some vague notion that Manafort met with Assange is pretty damn minor when the dude is already found guilty of a array of crimes; it's the type of evidence you use to show a pattern and all that but on it's own it's nothing compared to Roger Stone literally directing someone to get the leak from Assange.
If the Manafort thing came along with "and they have a transcript of the meeting!" or some other indication that they have evidence of why he met him, it would be huge.. beyond that I don't really get the excitement. The Stone thing on the other hand..
U.S. officials spoke with officials from Ecuador’s British embassy on Friday about an alleged meeting there between President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, an Ecuadorean government source said.
The Guardian newspaper reported the meeting in November, alleging the two met at least three times, including in 2016, just before WikiLeaks released damaging emails about Trump’s rival in the 2016 presidential elections, Hillary Clinton.
Manafort and Assange have both previously denied meeting each other at the embassy.

The source said the embassy officials, at the request of the U.S. Justice Department, provided testimony in Quito at facilities provided by Ecuadorean authorities.
