As said, to me I'd absolutely align with stating "I believe" just not saying it like a fact. There was a way to phrase it that wasn't basically "I know for a fact it wasn't the Russians, the intelligence agencies are absolutely wrong." If there's more going on here - you're wikileaks, you can reveal that without revealing the source that the agencies are operating on pure conjecture. He can discredit them by discrediting their methods, if he has anything concrete to discredit them with. It thus far doesn't look like he does (since he'd probably leak that), rather basing it on what he thinks he knows to be true about the middle man versus what they're saying. It was that it wasn't "I believe this or that, based on what I know" it was "I'm right, the FBI/CIA/NHS is wrong- the end." While similar, it's stating two different things. If there's flaws in the investigation, he doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who would keep the flaws of the investigation secret.

So, CIA Director Pompeo has called Wikileaks an tool for Russia, due to collaboration between Russian military intelligence and Russian television.

And remember, that is a Trump appointee.

He's backflipping. He said things differently about them months ago. Must be trying to look less guilty I'd imagine.

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, as he wasn't head of the CIA then. That sort gives him new info.

Maybe but given that he's part of Trump's inner circle, the possibilities of this being his attempt to mislead is quite possible, I'd say.

U.S. prepares charges to seek arrest of Wikileaks' Julian Assange, per CNN.

So they think WikiLeaks will just stay quiet if they run up on Assange?

Nope. Plus they're going to have a hard time getting Assange out of that Ecuadorian embassy.

So, Assange is attacking Comey as a leaker.

Yeah, Wikileaks is just a Russian tool now.

The Sophist, credulous psychopaths in in the comments section make me realize how much damage the Internet has done to our country as a whole in terms of politics and culture.

If you don't have your head in the sand, you know what Assange really is at this point.

Wikileaks is a Russian controlled group at this point. I think we all know this.
