Inside the CIA’s plot to murder Julian Assange (EN)

Bob Beckel once huffed of Julian Assange on a Fox News panel.

“A dead man can’t leak stuff,”

“This guy’s a traitor, he’s treasonous and… and… he has broken every law of the United States. And I’m not for the death penalty, so … there’s only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch.”

Bob Beckel was a democrat, a political analyst and a host of Fox News

This was in 2011, when Beckel, a Democrat, appeared on a handful of Fox shows to suggest balance on a station dedicated to defining, patrolling and enforcing the Republican Party’s ideological line. (Though how Assange, the Australian founder of WikiLeaks, could be considered traitorous or treasonous to the US is anyone’s guess.) […as well as that he’d have broken every law of the United States…] – from: The Sidney Morning Herald

Why was Bob Beckel himself not put in jail? For incitement, for example…

In criminal law, incitement is the encouragement of another person to commit a crime. Depending on the jurisdiction, some or all types of incitement may be illegal. Where illegal, it is known as an inchoate offense, where harm is intended but may or may not have actually occurred.

And what about Mike Pompeo, head of the CIA under Trump?
