Hannity to Julian Assange: "America owes you a debt of gratitude"

“You’ve done us a favor,” Hannity gushed on-air. Thanks to Assange and WikiLeaks’s work, Hannity said, “we can now fix the problem” of our gaps in U.S. cybersecurity. (The DNC and Podesta emails were a wake-up call, in a sense.) Assange also “exposed the corruption in our government” for all to see.

“I have so many questions for you,” Hannity said, before reminding his audience of WikiLeaks’s “perfect” record: “You have not been proven wrong, not one single time,” he reiterated…

The conservative host continued to make the case that the so-called mainstream media was “trying to scapegoat” Assange, and that “if [Hillary] were a Republican they’d be singing your praises day and night.”

“America owes you a debt of gratitude,” Hannity said, concluding their friendly chat. “We hope you come on [my TV show] soon.”
