Flashback: Hillary Clinton Proposed Killing Assange with ‘Drone Strike’

Two-time failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at one time proposed using a military drone strike to extrajudicially assassinate Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

During a Nov. 23, 2010, meeting with State Dept. officials strategizing a response to Wikileaks’ imminent “CableGate” document dump, Clinton – then serving as US Secretary of State to President Barack Obama – reportedly asked, “Can’t we just drone this guy?”

News of Clinton’s “drone strike” remark, whether made in jest or not, came on Oct. 2016, mere weeks before she was set to face off against Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

The comment plagued the final days of Clinton’s doomed second presidential bid, with reporters on the campaign trail asking if she “ever joked about droning Assange?”

Clinton responded she couldn’t recall making the comments.

Of course, Assange’s media organization later proved to be the gift that keeps on giving after it released damning Clinton campaign emails shortly before the 2016 election.

One Wikileaks email showed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta being invited to a “spirit cooking dinner” by performance artist Marina Abramovic, to take part in an occult ritual.

“Dear Tony, I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining? All my love, Marina,” read an email to Podesta’s brother, Tony.

With the Biden administration assisting in freeing Assange from prison, will Wikileaks strike or hold back against Democrats this election cycle?
