A report that Hillary Clinton wanted to drone Wikileaks founder Julian Assange could be the reason that he cancelled his live press conference scheduled for Tuesday.
On Sunday, it was reported by MSNBC that due to “security concerns” Assange cancelled the appearance, where he was allegedly going to reveal damaging information about Clinton.
Wikileaks itself did not mention any reveal of documents pertaining to Clinton, despite MSNBC’s insistence since Sunday that those documents would be the subject of the announcement.
“On the opening day of Wikileaks’ ten year anniversary period this press conference will announce new initiatives and provide updates on publishing and legal events. Looking over the decade long body of work staff and experts will speak of lessons learnt and future plans,” Wikileaks said in its announcement of the conference.
Assange has stated recently that he has more damaging information on Clinton that he plans to release at the appropriate moment.
On Monday, Wikileaks revealed how big Assange’s security concerns could be when it promoted the theory that Clinton wanted to have Assange killed during her time as secretary of state, according to an article from True Pundit.
“Can’t we just drone this guy?” Clinton openly inquired, offering a simple remedy to silence Assange and smother Wikileaks via a planned military drone strike, according to State Department sources. The statement drew laughter from the room which quickly died off when the Secretary kept talking in a terse manner, sources said. Clinton said Assange, after all, was a relatively soft target, “walking around” freely and thumbing his nose without any fear of reprisals from the United States. Clinton was upset about Assange’s previous 2010 records releases, divulging secret U.S. documents about the war in Afghanistan in July and the war in Iraq just a month earlier in October, sources said. At that time in 2010, Assange was relatively free and not living cloistered in the embassy of Ecuador in London. Prior to 2010, Assange focused Wikileaks’ efforts on countries outside the United States but now under Clinton and Obama, Assange was hammering America with an unparalleled third sweeping Wikileaks document dump in five months. Clinton was fuming, sources said, as each State Department cable dispatched during the Obama administration was signed by her.

Assange will not be appearing on the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Tuesday but he will make an announcement via a video appearance at a Berlin press conference on Tuesday morning.

Former Trump aide Roger Stone believes the Tuesday announcement will involve Clinton documents and thinks it will mean the end of the Democrat presidential nominee’s campaign.
When confronted about an alleged remark on using a drone strike to take out Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Hillary Clinton responded with a non-answer.
In fact, she shook her head and said she did not recall any such remark as she attempted to get around the question at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

During a short press conference held in the Zembo Shrine in Harrisburg, the Democratic presidential nominee fielded a question about whether she had once suggested assassinating Assange.
“Did you ever joke about droning Assange?” a reporter asked.
“Well, I don’t know anything about what he’s talking about, and I don’t recall any joke. It would’ve been a joke if it had been said, but I don’t recall that,” Clinton responded.
