    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says Hillary Clinton lied when she told the FBI she did not know what "C" stood for on government documents.

    "Hillary Clinton says that she can't remember what a 'C' in brackets stands for," Assange told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday.

    "Everyone in positions of government and at WikiLeaks knows it stands for 'classified confidential,’ ” he added.

    “We have already released thousands of cables by Hillary Clinton ... thousands of examples where she herself has used the 'C' in brackets and signed it off, and more than 22,000 times that she has received cables from others with this 'C' in brackets."

    Assange then took out a printed copy of an email and pointed to Clinton's signature on the bottom and then the classified mark at the top.

    Here she is. Clinton. See, thats her signature, with a 'C' in brackets right there,” he said.

    "So it’s absolutely incredible for Clinton to lie. She is lying about not knowing what that is. But it’s a bit disturbing that [FBI Director] James Comey goes along with that game."

    The FBI on Friday released their summary of the investigation into Clinton’s private email server. It notes that the former secretary of State thought that the letter “C” atop documents "was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order.”

    Clinton on Tuesday apologized for her mishandling of classified information, adding that she takes the issue "seriously."

    Of course she lied. I don't like Hillary Clinton but nobody, especially in her position, is that stupid.

    Assange's guide to classified information:

    C: Run of the mill documents. Only interesting when published in bulk
    S: Slightly more interesting documents. Probably worthy of a tweet.
    TS: The real stuff. Worthy of a banner headline on Wikileaks.

    Hill-bot: “Hillary didn’t lie, she just didn’t tell the truth. There is a difference. BTW: Trump.”

    The whole point of a classification system is to control distribution of truth. Sometimes that involves lying.

    Wow! I guess one thread about Hannity blowing Assange wasn't enough.

    Nice thread resurrection. On the topic of the OP I'll start to take Assange more seriously again when he starts leakinfo the documents from Russia that were supposed to come out a few years ago instead of him selectively leaking stuff to damage anti Putin people/organizations.

    Oh the irony. It's a bit disturbing for Assange to ignore Putin and Trump lies. You know....the people who are actually leaders of two of the biggest power players on Earth.

    Why do they call them cables? That's probably the biggest problem I have with this whole mess.
