Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton became visibly irritated during an interview with Australian TV when she was asked about Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange.
In the interview with 4corners, she appeared tired with bags under her eyes, and her bitterness over losing the election to Donald Trump clearly remained.
“I think Assange has become a nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator,” Clinton said, apparently referring to Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
When the interviewer noted many people in Australia view Assange as a “martyr for free speech and freedom of information.”
“I mean, he’s a tool of Russian intelligence,” she responded. “If he’s such a martyr for free speech, why doesn’t WikiLeaks ever publish anything coming out of Russia?”
The interviewer pushed back on Clinton’s claims.
