We can all rest assured that Mr. Assange will more than likely get his comeuppance on election day, and be buried in the news heap of the day.
People with hard evidence, as opposed to circumstantial evidence, need to be dealt with. Those with rumor and hearsay evidence are harmless pests, easily dismissed as quacks.
There is such a thing as "Order", as in law and order. Order is above the law. Let there be no doubt, Order is above the law.
Those who are selected as guardians of the order are above the law as well.
Your rulers don't rule, the Order Makers do. Just as Law Makers rule with the law, so do the Order Maker rule with Order.
The common man is familiar with the term "law and order", but they rarely consider the Order part of that terminology.
Mr. Assange has become more than a pest, he steps over the line when he gives his hard evidence to enemies of the Order.
There is a saying "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". Mr. Assange tries to play both sides of the fence and sticks his nose where it doesn't belong.
There is a "hidden hand", a "shadow power". They rule with Order, and they won't be challenged by a flea.
