Moore & Assange Both Don’t Want to Hear Real Allegations

19 Dec

[Trigger warning for description of sexual violence.]

Here is a clip from an ABC interview with Julian Assange from a couple days ago. Someone on Twitter requested a transcript, so here it is as well.

Jim Sciutto (interviewer): Speaking specifically, and I have to ask you about this… the allegations [pause] in Sweden. You said many times “smear campaign”. Are you saying in particularly that there’s been undue influence on the women who have made these accusations, or is it undue influence on the prosecutor? Because the women themselves — I was in the courtroom all these times, and there was talk of forcibly spreading her legs, uh holding her down so that she couldn’t move —

Julian Assange: [interrupting] Oh, come on, come on.

Sciutto: These — these —

Assange: [turning and walking away] I’m sorry. Come on, come on.

Sciutto: [starting to say something again, stops as Assange walks over to his group of folks]

*Someone helps Assange remove his microphone, Sciutto walks over to Assange.*

Sciutto: I — I meant no insult by it. Its just a —

Assange: Oh, come on, come on. [inaudible] Tabloid schmuck.


Assange has walked off another interview with a CNN corespondent when she brought up the rape allegations as well. Video put under the fold, since I’m guessing some of you are tired of seeing his face too. Relevant part starts at 2:45.

    Wow, that sure says a lot about him and a lot about the case. Even he does not want to deal with it. Disgusting. Thank you for sharing this.
