Assange: Obama administration destroying records ‘now’; offers reward for whistleblowers

If true, this is a major violation of public records statutes

(NationalSentinel) The founder of WikiLeaks just dropped another bombshell that, had it pertained to a Republican administration, would have been front-page news.

Julian Assange says he has information that the Obama administration is furiously destroying public records–a major violation of open records laws–and has offered $30,000 to anyone with intimate knowledge of the operation to come forward publicly.

“Past administrations of both Republican and Democratic players have engaged in mass destruction of records as they left office,” he said during a Periscope press conference on Monday, adding that the most important thing is for Americans to ensure such records do not get destroyed.

“We are told that destruction of records is occurring now in different parts of the Obama administration in different departments or agencies.

“That’s what happens when an administration leaves office,” Assange said, as reported by The American Mirror.

“Our philosophy is that such information is a part of history. It belongs, legally and philosophically, to the American people and more broadly, insofar as the United States interacts with the world, it belongs to the people of the world.

“It is part of human history and the destruction of major archives of human history, frankly, should be formally listed as a crime against humanity because those archives belong to humanity,” he said.

He added that those records are what we use to understand the world around us and to form new observations.

“To destroy them is absolutely and egregious act. One understands the political motivation for it,” Assange said, noting further that it is done to “eliminate small political risks by destroying major elements of history.”

Regarding his organization’s $30,000 reward offer,

Our request to system administrators in the Obama administration goes for other administrations around the world as well, is take the data now.

“Just take it now. Keep it under your bed, or with your mother and then you can give that to Wikileaks or other journalists at your leisure,” he said.
