On Sunday the group tweeted: “Trump’s breach of promise over the release of his tax returns is even more gratuitous than Clinton concealing her Goldman Sachs transcripts.”The organization then asked for someone to give it the tax returns, in order they could be published.

WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Hillary Clinton emails | Daily Mail Online

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange, told the Dailymail.com he flew to Washington, D.C. for emails. He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources. The leakers’ motivation was ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the ’tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders’Murray says: ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks’

Some of the hackers had been lurking in the systems since at least last summer, well before Trump sealed the Republican nomination, but only recently exfiltrated the Democratic party’s cache of files on Trump’s business dealings and past political statements, investigators said.

In New Video, Congressman Explains Why His Fellow Lawmakers Couldn't Be Trusted with NSA Oversight – The Intercept

Congressmen who asked about oversight of NSA mass surveillance and domestic spying in 2013 could have “compromise[d] security” and were denied the records they sought because of concerns they lacked formal government security clearance, a former member of the House Intelligence Committee says in a newly-released video.

The footage, from an August 29, 2013 town hall meeting, sheds new light on why lawmakers were denied key rulings and reports from the secret courts overseeing the National Security Agency — even as the Obama administration and intelligence officials claimed that all NSA programs were subject to strict congressional oversight and therefore could be held accountable.

In the video, Rep. Jim Langevin, D-R.I., then a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, discusses why Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., and Rep. Morgan Griffith, R-Va., should not and did not receive information they sought from the committee. The committee had previously declined to explain why the information was withheld, going so far as to tell Grayson that even its discussion of his request was classified. Because the committee, like its Senate counterpart, tends to be particularly sympathetic to the intelligence community, getting information to non-committee members like Grayson and Griffith is potentially crucial to reforming U.S. spy agencies. And in late 2013, following revelations of mass surveillance by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, there were any number of reform bills pending.

De Wikileaks a Mexicoleaks – horizontal.

La aparición de la plataforma Mexicoleaks plantea algunas preguntas acerca de su éxito como instrumento político. La experiencia de Wikileaks nos indica que los retos serán mayúsculos y que la coalición presentada deberá sortear la presión de sus enemigos.

Después de la filtración de cientos de miles de cables diplomáticos del Departamento de Estado de los Estados Unidos, Wikileaks llegó a la cúspide de su éxito. El modelo fue imaginado por Julian Assange en un oscuro ensayo escrito en el año 2006, en el que postula una suerte de teoría crítica del Estado y una solución al problema de dicha organización: el Estado es una conspiración sostenida por la comunicación secreta entre sus partes y para terminar con esta basta con exhibir el contenido de la conjura. Ocho años después de su puesta en operaciones, Wikileaks no puede declararse triunfador si la unidad de medida es la consecución de sus fines. Su éxito ha estado definido por oposición.

As the NSA revelations have shown, whistleblowing is now an essential art. It is our means of keeping ‘public reason’ alive

 

 

We all remember President Obama’s smiling face, full of hope and trust, in his first campaign: “Yes, we can!” – we can get rid of the cynicism of the Bush era and bring justice and welfare to the American people. Now that the US continues its covert operations and expands its intelligence network, spying even on its allies, we can imagine protesters shouting at Obama: “How can you use drones for killing? How can you spy even on our allies?” Obama murmurs with a mockingly evil smile: “Yes, we can.”

But simple personalisation misses the point: the threat to freedom disclosed by whistleblowers has deeper, systemic roots. Edward Snowden should be defended not only because his acts annoyed and embarrassed US secret services; what he revealed is something that not only the US but also all great (and not so great) powers – from China to Russia, Germany to Israel – are doing (to the extent they are technologically able to do it).

His acts provided a factual foundation to our suspicions of being monitored and controlled – their lesson is global, reaching far beyond the standard US-bashing. We didn’t really learn from Snowden (or Manning) anything we didn’t already presume to be true. But it is one thing to know it in general, another to get concrete data. It is a little like knowing that one’s sexual partner is playing around – one can accept the abstract knowledge, but pain arises when one gets the steamy details, pictures of what they were doing …

El exmagistrado de la Audiencia Nacional, Baltasar Garzón, ha sostenido que la situación del fundador de Wikileaks, Julian Assange, “no es la mejor”, dado que “hay una clara intencionalidad política detrás de todo el asunto que le tiene en la situación actual”. El exjuez ha añadido que “el uso político” del proceso a Assange se realiza “en virtud de la gran labor que ha hecho con su organización a la hora de denunciar el abuso de las corrupciones”. La causa no atañe tanto a la investigación de unos hechos que califica como “inconsistentes”, como a la persecución motivada por intereses gubernamentales. Garzón ha hecho estas declaraciones a la Cadena SER, en el marco de los cursos de verano de la Universidad de Jaén en Torres (Jaén) que él mismo dirige.
