Assange is becoming more prominent in the Trump campaign. Tonight he received a heroes welcome on the Sean Hannity show. Meanwhile it should be assumed that Putin's security agents are preparing more documents for Assange to dump at a strategic time.

our elections? Surely, Putin and Assange should be permitted to express their support for Trump, but should the American electorate have to put up with purposeful distortions of reality designed to deprive voters of the truth?
Russian Hackers Altered Emails Before Release to Wikileaks:

Clinton's campaign manager (Robby Mooks) suggested today that some of the emails may have been doctored. If any have been doctored, there will be a cloud over every one of them until whoever dumped a document can come forward to prove that it is authentic.

People should not just roll over and be destroyed by unauthenticated documents emerging from dark and suspicious sources. We should all demand some proof. Let these dumpers come forward and prove their case.
