One of the tactics the Ruling Class used in its attempt to “prove” that President Trump was a Russian asset was to try to tie him, or anyone even remotely associated with him, to WikiLeaks. For instance, recall how it targeted Roger Stone.
That tactic failed even as the Ruling Class continues advancing the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory.
Meanwhile, in early April, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY, 14) voiced her support for Espionage Act convict Bradley Manning—who literally gave WikiLeaks the classified information he stole from the U.S.
“Related: Chelsea Manning has been trapped in solitary confinement for refusing to answer questions before a Grand Jury,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Solitary confinement is torture. Chelsea is being tortured for whistleblowing, she [sic] should be released on bail, and we should ban extended solitary in the US.”
No hysteria has ensued. No one (to my knowledge) has condemned her defense of Manning.
In fact, Ocasio-Cortez’s support for Manning barely made the news.
