Methinks that the connections between Roger Stone, Wikileaks, and Russia are about to be revealed.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been charged under seal, prosecutors inadvertently revealed in a recently unsealed court filing — a development that could significantly advance the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and have major implications for those who publish government secrets.
The disclosure came in a filing in a case unrelated to Assange. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kellen S. Dwyer, urging a judge to keep the matter sealed, wrote that “due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged.” Later, Dwyer wrote the charges would “need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested.”
Dwyer is also assigned to the WikiLeaks case. People familiar with the matter said what Dwyer was disclosing was true, but unintentional.
Joshua Stueve, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of Virginia, said, “The court filing was made in error. That was not the intended name for this filing.”
An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment.
This news comes on the heels of news that Roger Stone pal Jerome Corsi is about to be indicted, as well as Stone himself, and quite possibly Donald Trump Jr.
Now that the midterms are over the consensus is that Robert Mueller is about to go full steam ahead, and we could see the threads being tied together to make the Russia collusion case in real time.
There is a lot of talk on Twitter about what a terrible precedent it would set for the Justice Department to arrest Julian Assange for disseminating information, even stolen information, and on one hand, I get that, but the facts are that Assange worked with a foreign government determined to do harm to American democracy, and that seems to warrant an indictment.
I personally think that Assange has been an agent for the Kremlin for quite some time now, at least since 2013, and I have every confidence that if Mueller is able to extradite him to the United States that he will sing like a bird and we will learn all kinds of fascinating tidbits about the 2016 election.
