Clinton foundation received money from ISIS funders: Assange
While the hustle-bustle of US Presidential Elections nears the end and vital days, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has claimed that the wealthy people from Qatar and Saudi Arabia who donated money to Hillary Clinton’s charitable foundation also provided financial support to Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
He was talking to documentary maker John Pilger for RT at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, when he pointed to an email exchange between US Democrat Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager John Podesta – leaked by his organisation in October.
“There’s an early 2014 email from Hillary Clinton, not so long after she was Secretary of State, to her campaign manager John Podesta. That email states that ISIS, ISIL is funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. I think this is the most significant email in the whole collection,” Assange told Pilger.
He also emphasized that the US’ biggest ever arms deal with Saudi Arabia was made during Clinton’s tenure as the Secretary of State.
“Under Hillary Clinton – and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it – the biggest ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: More than $80 billion,” Assange added.
It is to be noted that he replied in affirmative to the question that ISIL or ISIS is created largely with money from people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation.
However, Assange also dismissed Republican candidate Donald Trump’s chances of winning the election. “My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment,” said Assange.
“Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc, are all united behind Hillary Clinton; the media as well… media owners, and the journalists themselves,” Assange said.
