Julian Assange sent the wrong Sean Hannity a message offering damaging information on a top intel Dem

Published

on

In the aftermath of Fox News host Sean Hannity’s Twitter account being compromised, one of his copycats — the convincingly-named @SeanHannity__ — began receiving direct messages from WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange.

As The Daily Beast reported, Assange was apparently duped by the fake account, and told Dell Gilliam, a Texas-based technical writer posing as the Fox News host, that he wanted to set up “other channels” to provide information on a Democratic senator investigating Russia’s election meddling.

“You can send me messages on other channels,” Assange said to the person he believed to be Hannity via DM. He said he had “some news on Warner,” apparently referencing Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“I felt bad,” Gillam, who instigated the exchange, told the Beast. “He really thought he was talking to Sean Hannity.”

Assange mentioned “other channels” to the false Hannity account twice, and it doesn’t appear that he provided the information to the person behind it.

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good.
