In Part 2 of her multi-part investigative series, ‘Freeing Julian Assange’, Suzie delves into where the smear comes from that Wikileaks has been a tool or collaborator with the government of Russia in its release of documents damaging to the Clinton presidential campaign in 2016.
This is knotty stuff, but listen closely and you won’t have too much trouble tracking the serpentine path between U.S. and U.K. intelligence agencies and those who wittingly or unwittingly cooperate with them. Here, we’re talking about folks in the global mainstream media, NGOs, think tanks, and other sectors of the elite who soberly tell us plebes what to think.

As always, thanks for listening.
P.S. The response I’ve gotten from doing these recordings has been significant and vocal. It seems like folks are getting value from this effort, so I’m going to continue recording myself reading Suzie’s work, as well as recent work from other journalists and essayists that I believe will benefit from being heard aloud. Please do reach out to me in the comments section here on The Ghion Journal or on Twitter if you have specific writers or outlets you’d like to hear represented. I would absolutely welcome your feedback.
