Lawyer: if Clinton wins the election, the threat to Assange will increase

MOSCOW, October 24 — RIA Novosti. The lawyer for Julian Assange Melinda Taylor believes that if the candidate in US presidents from Democrats Hillary Clinton wins the election, the threat to the security of her client will increase significantly.

The True Pundit, citing sources in the US state Department has told about a situation which allegedly took place in 2010 during one of the meetings on how to stop the publication of WikiLeaks. Then, Clinton, who served as Secretary of state, allegedly asked the audience: “Why can’t we get this guy (Assange) with a drone?”. Clinton later said he did not remember that it was proposed to remove WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

“Probably a threat to the security of my client will significantly increase if the US President will be Hillary Clinton… Very anxious to hear the words that someone wants to kill someone with a drone, even said in jest. It would be tantamount to extrajudicial executions, which, no doubt, illegal. And the fact that former U.S. Secretary of state has made such an offer… only emphasizes that the risk to the life of Mr. Assange is growing,” — said Taylor “news”.

The lawyer believes that “there is a danger that recent posts can influence the judicial process” against Assange, referring to WikiLeaks published emails from the democratic party of the United States.

Portal WikiLeaks was founded by Assange 10 years ago. Over the years he published thousands of secret documents exposing including activities of the U.S. government. Assange was arrested in London in December 2010 on request of the Swedish police, insisting on his extradition to Sweden. In Sweden in the summer of 2010 in his attitude began investigations on the application of two women of sexual harassment. The suspect is in the Embassy of Ecuador in London since 2012 — he then appealed to the Ecuadorian authorities with a request for political asylum due to fears his extradition by the Swedish authorities in the United States in connection with his activities in WikiLeaks.
