When Manning provided classified documents and information to Assange in 2010, it seemed he was hailed as a hero by the left and a traitor by the right. The same could be said of Wikileaks and Assange during that same time.
But now, Assange is being linked to Trump. I don’t know how accurate this is. Assange provided Clinton emails to the world in 2016. Some say this helped Trump to win the presidency. Speaking for myself, the Wikileaks of Clinton’s emails had absolutely no influence on my decision to vote for Trump. I had made that decision back in 2015.
Anyway, Manning is a critic of Trump. Yet Assange it seems was a critic of Clinton. Why is it that in 2010 when all of this was happening the right and the left chose their sides? Now, the sides seem to be blurred.
If Assange is a Trump supporter and Manning probably would’ve been a Clinton supporter, how did their stances suddenly change?
How come Manning is not supporting Assange, like the way Assange supported Manning from 2010-2017?
Why doesn’t Manning speak of Assange anymore?
