According to a newly released Foreign Policy report, leaked communications show Wikileaks declined to release a cache of hacked Russian documents in the winter of 2016, dismissing the only partially published records as "already public". While there will be plenty of talk about this being proof of founder Julian Assange's loyalties to Russia, it most prominently displays his general hypocrisy and self-interest.

Attempting to figure out what's going on in Julian Assange's head is a daily struggle. After moving into the Ecuadorean embassy in London seven years ago to avoid extradition to Sweden on since-dropped sexual assault allegations, the 46-year-old has remained holed up there with Twitter as his main means of communication. From the embassy's confines, he's kept himself busy leaking a slew of hacked DNC emails, CIA exploits, and generally inserting himself into world events in which he plays no part.

Now, it looks like Assange is doubling down on his attempt to join the Trump clan.

Thanks to Wikileaks, you may have seen a quote from President Kennedy recently about his desire to "splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds". Wikileaks used the quote as the password to decrypt its latest release about CIA spy tools. And the quote can be found in news stories around the world, including in some from The Intercept. The only problem? The origin of the quote is a bit dubious.

Here we go again, gumshoes. WikiLeaks (read: Julian Assange) says it acquired a massive cache of CIA documents related to the agency's cyberwar efforts. The information therein, WikiLeaks claims, reveals covert CIA hacking tools that can take over iPhones, Android phones, TVs and pretty much any type of computer. It's scary stuff -- if you believe what WikiLeaks is saying is true.
