“In the process of issuing another not-really-a-denial about a Yahoo News report that the CIA plotted to kidnap, extradite and assassinate WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2017, former CIA director Mike Pompeo said that the 30 former government officials the report was based on ‘should all be prosecuted for speaking about classified activity inside the Central Intelligence Agency.’ … Pompeo called Wikileaks a ‘non-state hostile intelligence service’ that is ‘actively seeking to steal American classified information.’ ‘You deny the report?’ asked [Megyn] Kelly. ‘There’s pieces of it that are true,’ said Pompeo.” (09/30/21)
