After Criticizing WikiLeaks, Ben Sasse Reports Hacking Attempts

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The coolest man in the Senate, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) hit at WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, hard this past week.

After the organization released classified documents, describing CIA cyber operations, Sasse called them out.

“[Wikileaks head] Julian Assange should spend the rest of his life wearing an orange jumpsuit,” Sasse said in a statement on Thursday. “He’s an enemy of the American people and an ally to Vladimir Putin.”

Sasse also sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions questioning whether the Trump administration was “aggressively” pursuing Assange’s detention and prosecution.

“Frankly, it is amazing that I even have to ask this question of the Administration in light of the Intelligence Community’s formal assessment that Mr. Assange’s website is a known outlet for foreign propaganda and in light of Mr. Assange’s history of recklessly endangering the lives of Americans through his illegal disclosures,” Sasse wrote.

So federal officials have opened a criminal probe into the activities and Vice President Pence has said that the U.S. would pursue those involved in the incident.

Let’s not forget that WikiLeaks and Assange released information on troop movements in the Middle East, alerting the enemy to their whereabouts.

WikiLeaks and Assange, no matter how much Sean Hannity praises them, now, are not friends of the U.S.

Well, after Sasse’s strong statements from Thursday, he began having computer troubles on Saturday, and took to Twitter to let people know.


I’m going to say no.
