Hillary Clinton has said she approved of Julian Assange’s arrest because ‘he has to answer for what he’s done’.
The former Democratic Presidential candidate said that the founder of WikiLeaks, who she blames for her losing the 2016 election, deserves whatever punishment is coming his way.
Hillary also launched a barb at Donald Trump and said it is ‘a little ironic that he will be the only foreigner this administration welcomes into the United States’.
The comments are the first time that Hillary has addressed the arrest of Assange who was taken from the Ecuadorian embassy in London by British police where he had been hiding out for more than six years.
His Wikileaks colleagues have expressed fear that Assange could face decades behind bars or even the death penalty if he is extradited to the US.
Americans have taken to social media to blast the 2016 POTUS hopeful with some calling her names like “corrupt”, “witch” and evil, “YEs he should have to answer for exposing your lies and dealings and personal financial gain , for once I actually agree with Hillary” someone wrote.
