Wikileaks chief Julian Assange also had an opinion on James Comey, telling his followers on Twitter that he wanted to hire the deposed FBI leader, adding that working for Wikileaks was “fulfilling.”
Mr. Comey knows where many bodies are buried. Working for WikiLeaks is fulfilling. James–don’t become another lobbyist for Glock or Donkin.

WikiLeaks would be happy to consider hiring James Comey to help lead its DC office should he like to properly investigate the US government.

The Wikileaks founder remains something of a folk hero to elements of the activist left and right in the United States. He achieved widespread notoriety for his role in leaking classified U.S. government data and for his participation in the hacking of Hillary Clinton’s emails. As a candidate, Donald Trump once spoke fondly of Assange, but as President, he has taken a tougher line. His Justice Department is now actively looking for ways to indict him.
For the last several years, Assange has been holed up in London at the Ecuadorian Embassy where he is on the run from rape charges in Sweden.
