Liberal activist and comedian subpoenaed by House Intel Committee for contacts with Julian Assange

Published

on

The House Intelligence Committee is preparing to subpoena New York City radio host Randy Credico, who is known as both a leftist advocate for the rights of people imprisoned under draconian drug laws and also an acquaintance to Roger Stone and Julian Assange.

According to Alternet, Credico, who hosted a comedic political radio show on New York’s WBAI, has become a strange bedfellow in the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation due to three meetings he had with Assange this fall.

As Credico told Alternet, he and Assange met thrice in London: on September 6, and again on November 13 and 16. The comedian activist claimed he was there for a hearing regarding a Freedom of Information Act filed by Stefania Maurizi, an Italian journalist associated with Assange and The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald.

“I was just there to support [Assange] as a wing man,” Credico said. “I don’t agree with him on everything — it’s the fact that he’s a journalist and a publisher and has not put anything out that’s false. I don’t know anything about technology and he didn’t give me any secrets.”

Though Stone claimed in 2016 that Credico started a “Sanders supporters for Trump” group, the satirist told Alternet that he hates President Donald Trump, and that he believes his imminent subpoena (which came after he denied the committee’s request for an interview) is about “looking for a way to do in Assange.”

Trump is endangering the US by governing like he’s directing a reality TV show: officials

President Donald Trump seems to be waffling on whether or not he wants a war in Iran. As it stands, he seems to be against it, pulling back on a military strike that would have killed 150 people and most certainly begun another Middle Eastern war.

In a report from the Washington Post, leaders from policy to politics are telling the president to get it together. The "freewheeling" style of politics may have been a quirky style, but now it's putting the United States in a difficult position.

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.
