In a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Russia was not the source of the hacked Democratic emails the non-profit released during the 2016 election. Assange's claim contradicts reports from 17 intelligence agencies and general political consensus that the Russian government purposely interfered with the presidential election to get Donald Trump electedand many accuse him of being Putin's puppet. Can we trust Julian Assange?

The Obama administration says it is "100 percent certain" about Russia's involvement in the hacks. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (representing 17 intelligence agencies) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) jointly stated that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and leaked its documents to WikiLeaks

If the entire intelligence community is lying, that's a pretty vast conspiracy.

"We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party," Assange said. 

Assange is accusing the Obama administration of attempting to delegitimize the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump with claims of Russian hacking. And Assange's defenders say they would trust him over the U.S. government any day of the week.

Nobody loathed Hillary Clinton more than the late Christopher Hitchens, but he found Assange's motives and goals deeply suspect in 2010: "Objective is not the word one would select for either the aims or methods of WikiLeaks," Hitchens wrote.

Assange's allies claim the WikiLeaks editor has done so much to expose the secretive dealings of the U.S. government that officials will stop at nothing to smear, blame, and otherwise destroy him.

Assange's warm relationship with the Kremlin gives many pause. Why is someone who stated goal is transparency so close with a repressive dictatorship?
