Hillary Clinton: Julian Assange Must ‘Answer for What He Has Done’

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Julian Assange must “answer for what he has done” after the WikiLeaks founder was arrested on Thursday. At an event in New York, Clinton reportedly said that the charges against Assange make it clear that he is being punished for hacking into a “military computer to steal information from the United States government,” rather than for being a journalist. The Guardian reports Clinton also noted that Assange faces other criminal charges. “Look, I’ll wait and see what happens with the charges and how it proceeds, but he skipped bail in the UK,” she said. “The bottom line is he has to answer for what he has done, at least as it’s been charged.”

Yesterday, Paul Begala stepped into the lion cage at the circus called CPAC facing off with ring-leader and noted Hillary-hater Tucker Carlson.  Responding to a question just about everyone who has ever met Hillary is asked lately (you know the question) Begala was speculating as to some activities she might be enjoying at the moment when an audience member offered that she might be getting a facelift.  Begala had a quick response.

“No, not get a facelift.  She’s not a Republican society lady, she’s a real woman.”

His reply ruffled a few sisterly feathers, but I am willing to cut him some slack. She is real, and beautiful, and no surgical tools need be anywhere near that face.  Paul, after all, was in the lion cage.  Of course he brought his pistol with him.  The retort was reflexive and effective.   It was a product of  physical context.  Better  that he responded quickly and nipped it in the bud than had he sat there contemplating an answer that would have pleased everybody.  You can never please everyone.


Today it was Mitch McConnell’s turn at the CPAC mike.  Here was his witty contribution to the kill Hill sarcasm sweepstakes.

“Don’t tell me Democrats are the party of the future when their presidential ticket looks like a rerun of the Golden Girls….  They got Hillary and Joe Biden.”

Just wondering – is Joe Dorothy? Is Hillary Blanche?  Not to belabor a point,  Mitch, but she has not said she is on any ticket. One thing we do know is that she is golden, and their smart-mouth attempts at comedy, rather than tarnishing her image, keep her in the headers even while she hides out behind her keyboard turning out her next book.
