Did Someone Just Try To Assassinate Julian Assange?

Julian Assange, founder of the free speech organization Wikileaks, had a close call recently when an intruder attempted to break-in at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Security scrambled to find the intruder, but the person fled after being discovered.

Wikileaks released a statement shortly after the incident to their millions of followers.

“16 mins ago at 2:47am a “cat burglar” scaled the side wall + window of the Ecuadorian embassy in London; fled after being caught by security.”

Assange has lived in the Ecuadorian embassy in political asylum for over four years for fear of being detained by U.S. authorities if he sets foot outside the building.

It’s a dicey situation for Julian Assange, who has become the target of a hostile and deadly rhetoric.

Just recently, Bob Beckel, a CNN contributor and Hillary Clinton strategist, publicly called for the illegal assassination of Julian Assange on national TV.

The remarks have sparked international concern for the well-being and livelihood of Assange.

Before the beginning of the Democrat National Convention, where Hillary Clinton delivered her acceptance speech to officially become the presidential nominee, Assange published leaked emails from the DNC showing how the Clinton campaign and DNC had rigged the primary against the Bernie Sanders campaign.

The leaks sparked a controversy that surrounded Clinton at a pivotal moment in her campaign, and shined the spotlight on what many Sanders supporters say is just a glimpse of her history of corruption.

Assange has also publicly pledged to release more emails proving how Hillary Clinton shipped weapons and military-grade armaments to Jihadists as well as ISIS in Libya and Syria.

The founder of Wikileaks claims the emails show that Hillary Clinton directly oversaw and spearheaded the effort to arm the Jihadists, some of whom are the same people U.S. soldiers have fought against for over a decade.

The international free speech community and fans of Julian Assange fear he might be in danger in the embassy, especially when a top political pundit and Democrat Party strategist has called for his assassination.

With Assange being one of Hillary Clinton’s most hated enemies, those concerns for his safety could be legitimate since an intruder did try to break into his living quarters.

Beckel’s comments calling for the killing of Assange came after the Wikileaks founder implied that the mysteriously murdered DNC staffer, Seth Rich, was the source who provided Assange with the leaked DNC emails which exposed Hillary’s campaign corruption in the primary.

Many fans of Wikileaks have taken to Twitter to express their concern for Assange.

One Twitter user said: “Here we go. I hope Mr. Assange knows what he’s doing. Hope he leaves his information with others in case of an accident.”

Another said: “Somebody is definitely out for Assange. I really do hope Assange has some great intel for us once he’s done redacting.”

Some suspected American involvement.

One user wrote: “@wikileaks Maybe one of Hillary’s assassins? #saudimoney #neverhillary”

Another said: “@wikileaks attempted assassination you think?”

Who do you think tried to break into Julian Assange’s living quarters?  Do you think it was at the direction of Hillary Clinton? Were they attempting to assassinate Julian Assange?
