Exposed: CIA used Sheldon Adelson’s firm to spy on Julian Assange

Pushback with Aaron Maté

In his latest Grayzone exposé, Max Blumenthal reveals new details on the CIA spying and sabotage operation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The US surveilled Assange inside Ecuador’s London embassy, all while working with Trump mega-donor and casino magnate Sheldon Adelson’s security team and a Spanish company that had initially been hired to protect the embassy.

Drawing on court testimony and internal documents, Blumenthal reports on how the CIA sabotaged an asylum plan for Assange; installed software that allowed it to directly monitor him; and harassed and monitored Assange’s attorneys, friends, family, and journalist colleagues. 

Guest: Max Blumenthal, Editor of The Grayzone and author of The Management of Savagery.

  1. Strange bedfellows when Trump supporters & progressives both agree that the CIA & FBI are out of control & that we are living in an intelligence state.

  2. Wrong, he is in prison because he was accused of rape in Sweden – and don't give us that crap about CIA had 2 female agents working at Wikileaks who said "we can have sex with Assange and accuse him of rape" and let him go to England before he is imprisoned and abducted by the CIA ? Come on, you guys are worse than the Russiagate people.

  4. Pompaeo should be accountable for illegal operations and abuse of power by a CIA director targeting Julian Assange free speech within a Democracy.

  5. You guys need to interview Aaron Glantz. You're missing a HUGE story: the American economy has been SET UP for failure. And the people who did that are the SAME people who created the economic devastation of 2008. IOW: Not only was the Trump administration full of CIA bad actors. It is NOW filled with greedy pro-oligarchy bad actors attempting to permanently destroy the middle class.

  6. It seems self evident to me that CNN and all the other mainstream propaganda outlets work directly with the CIA, FBI, NSA and all the other evil SOBs to hoodwink the American masses. Lets face it, fake news, false flags and evasive coverups are what corporate news do best. That's why informed people tune into The Grey Zone, Jimmy Dore, RT and other independent news outlets. Talk to some befuddled fool in a bar and you can be certain he got his gibberish from some talking head lier, pulling a mega salary from CNN or another CIA funded, so called, news outlet.

  7. Noooooo!. Imagine that. One of the biggest donor to the Republican Party tie into the CIA…please say it ain't true. Please tell me Mr. Soros and Mr. Gates isn't tie into them, also. How much truth can a country handle at a time?
    Oh….. me ole mine, got carried away. Main Stream Media will keep this hush, hush.

  8. Mike Pompeo makes me think …..the Tony Soprano of politics……he is a pure evil warmonger the greatest threat to National and global security since John Bolton was neutralized.

  9. UN CIA AGENDA 21 DESTROY THE WORLD. Love Julian Assange, David Icke and your awesome channel. Social distance from Bill GATES and Jeffery Ebstein. They are highly paid criminals by third parties beware. NAZI GERMANY'S JEWS WERE SAFE AT HOME TOO. THEY WERE BRUTALLY TORTURED & MURDERED AS WELL. The USA military industrial complex and so called intelligence community have had this death agenda against honest people for over 50 years which changes to different forms time and again. THE FBI FUSION CENTERS ARE COORDINATING AND TARGETING AMERICAN CITIZENS USING PYCHOLIGICAL NO TOUCH TORTURE BY LAND, SEA AND AIR. They label us as terrorists and create a profile on us loaded with fake Intel. Lucifer is their GOD and they happily admit it. Trust no one except your inner circle. The REAL God Bless's You. 10 Criminal cartel families try to run the show by wineing and dining heads of states along Satan rituals which Jeffery Ebstein oversaw. Our so called leaders are highly paid actors believing they are the called and chosen ones and we are enemies and terrorists of the state. Slightly twisted and very perverted. It's actually a Spiritual war first and a physical war second. Consider yourself a real called and chosen one. Happy hunting… When your enemy drinks baby blood and eats human flesh you may want to consider these people are all in. I am all in for the GOD of Abraham Issac and Jacob. I hate no one and judge no one. Yet a quality dose of self defence and discernment is on the menu for today. May I recommend desert? Eternal life and rightousness is on top of the list. Have fun and it's OK to enjoy yourself. Unfortunately all wars are political. This world is chaos and order. Clean your room and kick ass diplomatically if possible. Losing everything is actually quite enjoyable. Now your a minimalist same as a soldier in the battle field. Keep smiling… I do not hate the government or law enforcement. I just love God and am trying to live a simple life while being attacked by idiots who can't run a business or be an reasonably ethical person. You are just fine as you are. God is not that picky. Your enemy sleeps with children and drinks baby blood so don't let them judge you. Their rightousness is fake, all you and I have to do is be human and we win. Dream, envision and execute. Change the world and change yourself. Don't forget your made in the image of God. The enemy is to but they don't know that. Advantage. You.Social distance from Bill GATES and Jeffery Ebstein.

  10. Thank you Max and Aaron, Adelson needs to be exposed for all corruption. We lived in Vegas 23 years. back in 2011 we joined " Occupy Las Vegas' we knew of CIA affiliation and spent many a day in front of Venetian protesting Adelson..so much cannot recall all.. The moment Trump announced he was running for president I knew Sheldon most likely behind this.. Trump, was he forced to run? Who knows?..explains so much . Embassy in Jerusalem, Adelson sitting in front row during Inauguration. This man is the most corrupt human. Crimes against humanity..Palestinians.. Free Julian! My heart breaks for him. We need WIKILEAKS and Assange! Thank you..love, Peace

  11. So according to Mike, Free speech is only good until the government is being exposed for wrong and illigal actions or behaviors? Once they became the target of corruption, free speech becomes a crime. Julian, an Australian citizen was not under any US laws or constitution and as such, how did he broke any laws?

  12. "The Attack on Assange is firmly bi-partisan". The issue not mentioned here is that the CIA is above US, Australian and international law. The fact that the American Servicemen Protection Act even exists is a reflection of this exceptionalism and it is part of the reason why the US can with impunity, murder 100,000s of people in illegal wars

  13. Thank you Grey Zone for the excellent work your doing for us humans to be given a better understanding of such grave issues against humanity.
    Thank you Max for your excellent work to also bring forward the TRUTH to humanity. God Bless and protect you both

  14. Grey Zone and Max shud be given an award for their dual EXCELLENCE in coordinating this amazing video of proof of tge total satanic evil doing if Satan's work to destroy innocent humans. God may your hands of JUSTICE bring down the hammer of these evil Satan's team. Mike Pompeo your included in this evil Satan's hand in this movement. U shud be ashamed of yourself. God will finally reward you Mike and Adelson and his team.

  15. Who in this World would be "Proud" to be a Thief a LIAR and a CHEAT????? CIA Director…….lol…….so they're all SCUMBAGS?????? Change it to CentralScumbagAgency…….lol……..Really??? Did you notice not everyone was laughing but FatBoy and two or three more Morons. Sheisters to the Left of me and Scumbags to the Right!!!

  16. That’s why Julian is not dead.He is a thorn in the side of the establishment but not a direct threat because thy think they can contain the fallout.

  17. Free Julian Assange, this is one of those American and British weapons of mass destruction thing, which is pure bullshit. People around the world should be able to do evil things to British people.

  18. Surprise, surprise, surprise! Assange facilitates spying on the US government, then the US government spies on Assange! Poor, poor Julian Assange. May he rot in jail for the rest of his pathetic, misdirected life!

  19. Great report. Fruit of the poisonous tree is a legal doctine which means that if any of the illegal surveillance led to other evidence, even if it was legally obtained, can't be used against Assange. Or anyone else spied on in the embassy.

    So whatever evidence is used, let's say in the extradition hearing but also at trial, Assange should make the government prove that it wasn't derived from illegal CIA surveillance. Even indirectly, as the fruit of the poisonous tree. In practical terms I think it means that they wouldn't be able to use any evidence after the time Assange was in the embassy.

  20. No wonder Russia and China invest a pretty penny in their own styles of counter-intelligence. All of these "intelligence services" are a bunch of criminals.. dysfunctional people with zero morals.

  21. Well, if we had a real media culture… LOL, well, that's what the whole epstein-maxwell-CIA parteneship was for…DUH! To blackmail the corporate media executives
