SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Okay, so, the charges against Julian Assange have to do with his work with Chelsea Manning, who has already been pardoned by Barack Obama.
I think Greenwald is onto something here as well, as like -- the press doesn't care because that hurt Democrats, it's political. Okay, but, looks like there's a precedence here. The question is, why didn't they ever look into -- if they think all this came from Russia, why didn't they ever go to the Ecuadorian Embassy and talk to Assange?
From what we know, they never did that. Maybe they didn't want the forensics. You know, maybe there were other sources.
Now, most people tell me, my sources say yeah, probably it was connected to Russia in some way. Maybe a third party, some outlet, whatever. I have other people -- smart, smart people telling me "nope." I had it come from a couple of sources. Some of them might have even been Bernie supporters. Who knows? I don't know the answer to that. I only know the answer he gave me.
But I wonder -- I would assume, based on the past actions of WikiLeaks and Assange, that there's probably -- I don't think everything he owned is in the Ecuadorian Embassy at that point. A lot of people would come and go, like Pam Anderson, for example.
My guess would be -- I'd be interested to find out what they know, what the forensics show, where did it come from?
