WikiLeaks would like to believe that nothing happened after 2013 that would change DOJ's understanding of those earlier exposures of US (and British) assets.
But the very same Mike Pompeo speech that they've all been citing explained precisely what changed. The US government had a different understanding of WikiLeaks' facilitation of the exposure of its assets identities.

For some reason, Julian Assange's lawyer thought it would help his case to testify about just one of the four pardon pitches -- all involving Russia -- made for Julian Assange since he helped authoritarian Donald Trump become President.

Yeah, she was that and everything. RBG became a thing, not just in hip hop, but popular culture.
And she earned every ounce of it.

While Barr didn't say it explicitly, the logic of his complaint, in a screen about the Mueller investigation, that prosecutors are applying hyper-aggressive theories of law is a defense of Yevgeniy Prigozhin.

Paul Manafort probably lied about discussing with Roger Stone how to cover up their activities from July and August 2016. That's why I find it so interesting that Manafort didn't offer up the most damning conversation, where Stone pitched how they would save Trump's ass.

DOJ IG Michael Horowitz has a habit of finding error or lies from Trump critics, even when given abundant evidence that DOJ has been politicized beyond belief. And particularly given restrictions on what he can investigate, there's little change his investigation into the Roger Stone sentencing will be any different.
In his book, Peter Strzok offers a fairly compelling account of how the Crossfire Hurricane investigation got opened and why it then included four of Trump's flunkies. That may make it harder -- for both Republican propagandists and John Durham's investigators -- to continue chasing the same questions.

The latest fake scandal that Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson are unleashing has to do with the Mueller team's attempt -- not entirely successful but far beyond DOJ requirements -- to document every personal text sent from team members' Mueller-issued phones.

WikiLeaks supporters say that extradition of Julian Assange to the United States threatens journalism. That is true.
They also say that his extradition would be unprecedented. I believe that's true too, with respect to the Espionage Act.
