Michael Morell
I cannot be part of an organization – The Kennedy School – that honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information. Ms. Manning was found guilty of 17 serious crimes, including six counts of espionage, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, an entity that CIA Director Mike Pompeo says operates like an adversarial foreign intelligence service.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

[I have been] detained for seven years without charge while my children grew up and my name was slandered. I do not forgive or forget. My legal staff have contacted the UK authorities, and we hope to engage in a dialogue on what is the best way forward. To some extent Britain has been exploited by the process it entered into with the EU, where it agreed to extradite people without charge.feedback

Evan Greer

I personally would love for Chelsea to sit on a beach for a month and sip whatever drinks she likes to sip and relax.feedback

Gregory Angelo

I think that it is great that Chelsea Manning is going to be able to live her life authentically and she should most definitely be allowed to do so, but that does not excuse past behaviors that put lives at risk and put her into prison in the first place. There are far better representatives of the LGBT community.feedback

Chase Strangio

Chelsea is someone who has taken on a great personal risk and tremendous personal cost to do something she thought was in the best interest of the public.feedback

Jamie Shupe

I don't agree with Manning being released this early. Why? Outside of all the WikiLeaks stuff, because Manning punched a female superior during wartime, in a combat zone. As a former senior enlisted leader, who has been threatened with death and violence for forcing soldiers – bad apples like Manning – to carry out the Army's marching orders, I perfectly understand how dangerous this is.feedback

Brad Smith

This attack provides yet another example of why the stockpiling of vulnerabilities by governments is such a problem. (...) We have seen vulnerabilities stored by the CIA show up on WikiLeaks, and now this vulnerability stolen from the NSA has affected customers around the world. Repeatedly, exploits in the hands of governments have leaked into the public domain and caused widespread damage. An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the U.S. military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen.feedback

Brad Smith

We have seen vulnerabilities stored by the CIA show up on WikiLeaks, and now this vulnerability stolen from the US military intelligence organisation National Security Agency (NSA) has affected customers around the world. An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the US military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen. The governments of the world should treat this attack as a wake-up call.feedback

Brad Smith

This is an emerging pattern in 2017. We have seen vulnerabilities stored by the CIA show up on WikiLeaks, and now this vulnerability stolen from the NSA has affected customers around the world. [Governments] need to take a different approach and adhere in cyberspace to the same rules applied to weapons in the physical world.feedback

Mike Pompeo

It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.feedback

Laura Poitras

I think it's really funny and surreal and the sort of disconnect is great. And I also think it's revealing about him. When she is asking who is after him, you feel like this list could keep going on and on and on. And, the truth is, is that all of those organizations, agencies, countries do have investigations into Wikileaks and Julian.feedback

Hillary Clinton

But I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russia WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. We overcame a lot in the campaign, we overcame a barrage of negativity, of false equivalency, but as Nate Silver…has concluded, if the election had been on October 27 I would be your president. But it wasn't.feedback

Jeff Sessions

We've already begun to step up our efforts and whenever a case can be made, we will seek to put some people in jail.feedback

Hillary Clinton

It wasn't a perfect campaign - there is no such thing - but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off.feedback

Hillary Clinton

If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your president. It's a painful process reliving the campaign. Within an hour or two of the Hollywood Access tape being made public, the Russian theft of John Podesta's emails hit WikiLeaks. What a coincidence! So, I mean, you just can't make this stuff up. So did we make mistakes? Of course we did. Did I make mistakes? Oh my gosh, yes. You know, you'll read my confession and my request for absolution. If all [the bombing] was a one-off, I expect it's not going to have much of an effect.feedback

Sam Hassan

I find it very ironic that he asked them to do some sort of hacking into Hillary Clinton's email and then WikiLeaks leaks out all sorts of her email.feedback

Jimmy Wales

The news is broken, but we've figured out how to fix it. This is a problem because ads are cheap, competition for clicks is fierce and low-quality news sources are everywhere. As the facts are updated, the news becomes a living, evolving artifact, which is what the Internet was made for.feedback

Mike Pompeo

(Wikileaks) directed Chelsea Manning to intercept specific secret information, and it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States. It's time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.feedback

Barry Pollack

The Department of Justice should not be treating the publication of truthful information as a reason for a criminal investigation of the publisher. Democracy has always depended on journalists being able to inform the public of what their government is doing.feedback

Mike Pompeo

They have pretended that America's First Amendment freedoms shield them from justice. They may have believed that, but they are wrong.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

If they follow those rules, if they follow the First Amendment, they shouldn't be pursuing a prosecution.feedback

Trevor Timm

Every newspaper worth its salt has published classified information, and who believes the Trump administration, with its press hatred, would stop there?In an unprecedented and dangerous move that threatens the press freedom rights of all journalists, the US Justice Department has indicated it is preparing to charge WikiLeaks with a crime and may attempt to arrest its founder Julian Assange. The charges may stem from the publication of US State Department cables in 2010 and their more recent of disclosure of CIA hacking tools.feedback

Mike Pompeo

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. It has encouraged its followers to find jobs at CIA in order to obtain intelligence... And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations. It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is -- a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The media has a long history of speaking truth to power with purloined or leaked material - Jack Anderson's reporting on the CIA's enlistment of the Mafia to kill Fidel Castro; the Providence Journal-Bulletin's release of President Richard Nixon's stolen tax returns; the New York Times' publication of the stolen 'Pentagon Papers'; and The Post's tenacious reporting of Watergate leaks, to name a few. I hope historians place WikiLeaks' publications in this pantheon. Yet there are widespread calls to prosecute me.feedback

Barry Pollack

We've had no communication with the Department of Justice, and they have not indicated to me that they have brought any charges against Mr. Assange. They've been unwilling to have any discussion at all, despite our repeated requests, that they let us know what Mr. Assange's status is in any pending investigations. There's no reason why Wikileaks should be treated differently from any other publisher.feedback

Barry Pollack

The fact of the matter is – however frustrating it might be to whoever looks bad when information is published – WikiLeaks is a publisher, and they are publishing truthful information that is in the public's interest. Democracy thrives because there are independent journalists reporting on what it is that the government is doing.feedback

Mike Pompeo

It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is … a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia. In January of this year, our Intelligence Community determined that Russian military intelligence – the GRU – had used WikiLeaks to release data of U.S. victims that the GRU had obtained through cyber operations against the Democratic National Committee. And the report also found that Russia's primary propaganda outlet, RT, has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks.feedback

Mike Pompeo

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. But I assure you that this man knows nothing of America and our ideals. We know this because Assange and his ilk make common cause with dictators today. Yes, they try unsuccessfully to cloak themselves and their actions in the language of liberty and privacy; in reality, however, they champion nothing but their own celebrity.feedback

Mike Pompeo

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. In Kansas, we know something about false wizards. No, don't laugh. I mean that.feedback

Mike Pompeo

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. They are voracious consumers of the product we develop. They ask really hard questions. While we do our best to quietly collect information on those who present very real threats to our country, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden seek to use that information to make a name for themselves. As long as they make a splash they care nothing about the lives they put at risk or the damage they cause to national security.feedback

Mike Pompeo

It directed Chelsea Manning in her theft of specific secret information. And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations. It's time to call our WikiLeaks for what it really is, a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.feedback

Mike Pompeo

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. Assange is a narcissist who has created nothing of value. He relies on the dirty work of other to make himself famous. He is a fraud – a coward hiding behind a screen.feedback

Mike Pompeo

Russia is now on their sixth or seventh story, none of which has an ounce of truth to it.feedback

Mike Pompeo

WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. In Kansas, we know something about false wizards. They cling to this fiction, even though their disclosures often inflict irreparable harm. It's time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia. Russian military intelligence, the GRU, had used WikiLeaks to release data of US victims that the GRU had obtained through cyberoperations against the Democratic National Committee.feedback

Mike Pompeo

No one has the right to engage in the theft of secrets from America. They'll run their course. The president also is completely prepared to hear things that run counter to the hypothesis.feedback

Mike Pompeo

Need further proof that the fix was in from Pres. Obama on down? BUSTED: 19,252 Emails from DNC Leaked by WikiLeaks.

Mike Pompeo

It's time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia. It overwhelmingly focuses on the United States while seeking support from anti-democratic countries and organizations. That Assange is nothing short of a hero to … terrorists is reprehensible. Frankly, our government has not done enough looking at this new risk. As long as they make a splash, they care nothing about the lives they put at risk or the damage they cause to national security.feedback

Mike Pompeo

I am quite confident that had Assange been around in the 1930s and 40s and 50s, he would have found himself on the wrong side of history. We know this because Assange and his ilk make common cause with dictators today. Yes, they try unsuccessfully to cloak themselves and their actions in the language of liberty and privacy; in reality, however, they champion nothing but their own celebrity. Their currency is clickbait; their moral compass, nonexistent. Their mission: personal self-aggrandizement through the destruction of Western values.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The truths we publish are inconvenient for those who seek to avoid one of the magnificent hallmarks of American life – public debate. We publish truths regarding overreaches and abuses conducted in secret by the powerful. The media has a long history of speaking truth to power. I hope historians place WikiLeaks' publications in this pantheon.feedback

Julianne Smith

We should be watching eastern Ukraine, we should be watching for a cyberattack, another drip-drip-drip of WikiLeaks. There's all sorts of things they can do.feedback

John Podesta

One thing I can say is, when the Wikileaks came out, at least people found out I wasn't lying.feedback

Dean Boyd

Dictators and terrorists have no better friend in the world than [WikiLeaks founder] Julian Assange, as theirs is the only privacy he protects. The American public should be deeply troubled by any WikiLeaks disclosure designed to damage the intelligence community's ability to protect America against terrorists and other adversaries.feedback

Jake Williams

It's one thing to say, I got hacked.' It's another thing to say, I got hacked by the CIA. I suspect this could cause some foreign policy issues down the road. If you're trying to false flag an operation as Chinese, you wouldn't want to hide those code strings, you'd want everyone to see them.feedback

Dean Boyd

Dictators and terrorists have no better friend in the world than Julian Assange, as theirs is the only privacy he protects.feedback

Patrick Eddington - Cato Institute

It would just reinforce the martyr image Assange tries to project. One other thing that may deter or at least give potential prosecutors pause is the virtual certainty that an indictment and extradition attempt would result in massive acts of online retaliation by WikiLeaks and its hacktivist supporters. Would the personal lives of the prosecutors, FBI agents, and other involved in any anti-Assange action be seen as fair game? I'm betting the answer is yes.feedback

Nicholas Weaver

This appears to be one of the most technically damaging leaks ever done by WikiLeaks, as it seems designed to directly disrupt ongoing CIA operations and attribute previous operations.feedback

Rich Mogull - Securosis

The most notable part of this latest WikiLeaks release is that it shows the CIA doing exactly what we pay them to – exploit specific targets with limited attacks to support our national interests.feedback

Tim Shorrock

When WikiLeaks released more than 8,000 files about the CIA’s global hacking programs this month, it dropped a tantalizing clue: The leak came from private contractors. Federal investigators quickly confirmed this, calling contractors the likeliest sources. As a result of the breach, WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange said, the CIA had “lost control of its entire [].feedback

Stephen Colbert

If WikiLeaks is to be believed, the latest dump from WikiLeaks says that the CIA is looking at me and listening to me through my TV. Uh, is the CIA listening to me through my microwave oven and through my TV and through my cellphone? Are they doing that, sir? I can tell you that these tools would not be used against an American.feedback

Nathan White

The NSA leaks were shocking because they revealed mass surveillance that impacted all of us. We're not seeing that here – at least not yet.feedback

Stuart Madnick

How dangerous is it to you if the vulnerabilities persist, or how valuable are the vulnerabilities if the CIA can use them? We need to decide as a nation.feedback

James Lewis

The insider story has some odd bits: this sort of information is supposed to be compartmentalized, meaning that one person shouldn't have access to all of it. The agency has extensive new safeguard to detect such a leak after the Snowden incident.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

This is a historic act of devastating incompetence, to have created such an arsenal and stored it all in one place and not secured it. WikiLeaks discovered the material as a result of it being passed around a number of different members of the US intelligence community, out of control and in unauthorised fashion.feedback

Andrew Komarov

It is professionally written, which may demonstrate a pretty serious level of malware development.feedback

Paul Lipman - BullGuard

I don't think WikiLeaks is the first stop for tech companies looking to solve vulnerabilities.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We have decided to work with them, to give them some exclusive access to some of the technical details we have, so that fixes can be pushed out. There's absolutely nothing to stop a random CIA officer. The technology is being designed to be unnaccountable, untraceable; it's designed to remove traces of its activity.feedback

Jonathan Liu - Central Intelligence Agency

As we've said previously, Julian Assange is not exactly a bastion of truth and integrity. Despite the efforts of Assange and his ilk, CIA continues to aggressively collect foreign intelligence overseas to protect America from terrorist, hostile nation states and other adversaries.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We have decided to work with them, to give them some exclusive access to the additional technical details we have, so that fixes can be developed and pushed out.feedback

Stewart Baker - National Security Agency

The unauthorized release of classified documents does not mean it's unclassified. Doing business with WikiLeaks and reviewing classified documents poses a real risk for at least their government contracting arms and their cleared employees.feedback

Robert Cattanach - Department of Justice

They don't want to be seen as endorsing or supporting an organization with a tainted reputation and an unclear agenda.feedback

Heather Fritz Horniak

Julian Assange is not exactly a bastion of truth and integrity.feedback

Cindy Cohn - Electronic Frontier Foundation

I am not a fan of WikiLeaks, but I don't think it is fair to throw rocks at everything they do. What WikiLeaks is demonstrating is that the CIA does not have the best interests of these companies at heart. We all should have better security, and certainly at this point, not trying to fixing them makes no sense.feedback

Stewart Baker - National Security Agency

The unauthorized release of classified documents does not mean it's unclassified.feedback

Jonathan Liu - Central Intelligence Agency

And CIA does not do so. The American public should be deeply troubled by any WikiLeaks disclosure designed to damage the intelligence community's ability to protect America against terrorists and other adversaries. Such disclosures not only jeopardize U.S. personnel and operations, but also equip our adversaries with tools and information to do us harm.feedback

Alex Rice - HackerOne

This is a critical step that WikiLeaks should have taken immediately upon receipt of such information.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

To give them some exclusive access to the additional technical details we have so that fixes can be developed and pushed out, so that people can be secured.feedback

Joseph Lorenzo Hall

I think a number of companies will welcome this gesture and work hard to develop updates or at least mitigations that may make some of these flaws harder to exploit. If WikiLeaks gives you a gift, you probably want to be careful with it!feedback

Heather Fritz Horniak

As we've said previously, Julian Assange is not exactly a bastion of truth and integrity.feedback

Adriel T. Desautels

When vendors receive information about a vulnerability, they look at it from a political perspective. Especially with highly complex ones, they can sit in the hands of a vendor for years, two to three years, until they receive external pressure to move on something.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We have quite a lot of exploits that we want to disarm before publishing.feedback

Dean Boyd

As we've said previously, Julian Assange is not exactly a bastion of truth and integrity. Despite the efforts of Assange and his ilk, CIA continues to aggressively collect foreign intelligence overseas to protect America from terrorists, hostile nation states, and other adversaries.feedback

Sean Spicer

And make no mistake about it I think the president has talked before that anybody who leaked classified information will be held to the highest degree of law. We will go after people who leak classified information. we'll prosecute them to the full extent of the law. This is playing with our nation's national security is not something that should be taken lightly under this administration.feedback

Chris Wysopal - Veracode

The clear move is to notify vendors. If WikiLeaks has this data then it's likely others have this data, too. The binaries and source code that contain zero days should be shared with people who build detection and signatures for a living.feedback

Adriel T. Desautels

That's a huge problem. Our capabilities are now diminished.feedback

Geng Shuang

We urge the U.S. side to stop listening in, monitoring, stealing secrets and internet hacking against China and other countries.feedback

Sean Spicer

It is our policy as a government not to confirm the authenticity of any kind of disclosure or hack.feedback

Heather Adkins - Google

As we've reviewed the documents, we're confident that security updates and protections in both Chrome and Android (operating systems) already shield users from many of these alleged vulnerabilities. Our analysis is ongoing and we will implement any further necessary protections.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks has a lot more information about what has been going on with the cyberweapons program. After considering what we think is the best way to proceed and hearing these calls from some of the manufacturers, we have decided to work with them to give them some exclusive access to the additional technical details that we have so that fixes can be developed and pushed out, so people can be secure.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We have decided to work with [manufacturers] to give them exclusive access to the additional technological details we have so that fixes can be developed and pushed out. Once this material is effectively disarmed by us we will publish additional details. This is an historic act of devastating incompetence to have created such an arsenal and stored it all in one place and not secured it.feedback

Michael Costello - Cisco Systems

Between the time that we notified them and the release date, it was approximately one line of code per week.feedback

Ewen MacAskill

The reporting of the latest Wikileaks material shows the media have now grasped the surveillance threat. But tougher official oversight is what’s really needed. A glance at Wednesday’s newspaper headlines about the hacking capabilities of security services in Britain and the US would have cheered privacy advocates. “Spy in your TV” was the splash in the Sun. The Mirror, also on the front page, had “MI5 bugging smart TVs”. The Times, again on the front, had: “Thousands of CIA spy files posted on internet: British intelligence helped hack TVs and phones”. And the Mail: “How our spooks helped the CIA create ‘spy TVs’”.feedback

Sean Spicer

Playing with our nation's national security is not something that should be taken lightly under this administration. It's interesting that we're hearing not as much outrage now when it comes to some of our issues of national security.feedback

Daniel Prieto

This is the double-edged sword of the digitization of everything. Think back to the James Bond movies with a guy in the backroom with a camera that looks like a cigarette lighter taking 20 pictures of a weapons design system. Nowadays, one thumb drive can contain hundreds of thousands of pages.feedback

Varun Badhwar

Yes, I think anything connected to the internet is hackable, is something that can be compromised and ultimately you've got to be mindful of where you want your devices placed inside of your homes, offices and across your personal life.feedback

Will Donaldson

They're tapping into cars. They're tapping into home TVs. They're tapping into every device that you would carry that has a battery in it basically. Because of that, it's so prevalent. There's just so many holes. We're just getting started looking at them. I think Samsung was one of them that they listed, that they could turn it on remotely but it wouldn't put the power light on. So anybody in that room would then be discussing or talking and being monitored without their knowledge or consent.feedback

Konstantin von Notz

The matter has to be investigated immediately. These are all very significant criminal activities.feedback

Michael Hayden

I can tell you that these tools would not be used against an American. But there are people out there that you want us to spy on. You want us to have the ability to actually turn on that listening device inside the TV, to learn that person's intentions.feedback

Michael Hayden

I can tell you that these tools would not be used against an American. But there are people out there that you want us to spy on. You want us to have the ability to actually turn on that listening device inside the TV, to learn that person's intentions. This is a wonderful capability. You give the intelligence community $53 billion a year. You've got to get something for your money.feedback

Sean Spicer

This is the kind of disclosure that undermines our security, our country and our well-being. This alleged leak should concern every single American.feedback

Sean Spicer

There is a big difference between disclosing John Podesta's gmail accounts about a back-and-forth, and his undermining of Hillary Clinton and his thoughts on her of a personal nature, and the leaking of classified information. There is a massive, massive difference between those two things. And I think the interest and the outrage that occurred last year by a lot of Democrats, when it came to leaks, it's interesting that we're hearing not as much outrage now when it comes to some of our issues of national security.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

In isolation, this would come and go without problems, but now it's another reason for Samsung to be in the headlines.feedback

Avivah Litan - Gartner

Basically the 'Internet of things' is vulnerable and has been deployed without thinking of security first.feedback

Matt Holden

At this point, I am so used to reading stories about accounts getting hacked that it is to be expected. So long as I conduct myself in a way that would mean I have nothing to hide, then I'm not worried about the government taking a look.feedback

Avivah Litan - Gartner

We don't know about the CIA role, but we do know anything with a chip in it that is connected to the Internet is vulnerable to hacking.feedback

Andrew Marshello

Today's leaks definitely concern me, but at this point I have accepted that security risks are an inherent part of our modern technology. Since that tech is so integrated into our society, it's hard to take the reasonable step – cutting out smart devices, messaging apps, etc. – without sacrificing a part of social life.feedback

Ed Mierzwinski

You shouldn't be too concerned about the CIA hacking you unless you're doing something illegal. But this should be a wakeup call for the average consumer.feedback

Scott Vernick

What everybody should be asking is whether any of this was shared with local law enforcement.feedback

Eva Velasquez

People have fatigue in this area, especially when talking about data breaches, and to a degree, hacking. People love their fun toys and devices.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Uh, is the CIA listening to me through my microwave oven and through my TV and through my cellphone? Are they doing that, sir? If they were, would you say yes? Is that a true answer? I don't believe you. I can't wait for the tapes to come out.feedback

Andy Yen - Central Intelligence Agency

The exploitation of user endpoints (mobile phones, personal computers, etc) is actually not a new technique, but one that has existed since the first malware was created. This unfortunately is not something that cryptography is designed to defend against, as encryption by itself cannot guarantee the security of end-user devices.feedback

Andy Yen - Central Intelligence Agency

The core cryptographic algorithms and techniques used by ProtonMail and other encrypted services remain secure.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

There is an extreme proliferation risk in the development of cyber 'weapons'. Comparisons can be drawn between the uncontrolled proliferation of such 'weapons', which results from the inability to contain them combined with their high market value, and the global arms trade. But the significance of 'Year Zero' goes well beyond the choice between cyberwar and cyberpeace. The disclosure is also exceptional from a political, legal and forensic perspective.feedback

Avivah Litan - Gartner

We don't know about the CIA role, but we do know anything with a chip in it that is connected to the Internet is vulnerable to hacking. Basically the 'Internet of things' is vulnerable and has been deployed without thinking of security first.feedback

Oren Falkowitz - Area 1 Security

We expect governments to be involved in espionage. What we don't expect is that the people within these organizations would create vulnerabilities by disclosing them.feedback

Joel Brenner

If something is shared with hundreds or thousands of people, there's a sense in which it's already no longer a secret.feedback

Dan Guido - Trail of Bits

The difference between wholesale surveillance and targeted surveillance is huge. Instead of sifting through a sea of information, they're forced to look at devices one at a time. They're using standard tools, reading the same tech sites and blogs that I read. The holes have been plugged.feedback

Malcolm Nance - NBC News

I don't think this came from software. I think this came from screen grabs that were done on a non-secure computer – thats why I think it was a low level guy. It appears to be a hit operation on the CIA by Julian Assange [the WikiLeaks founder]. Why would it come out in such a precision release? Wikileaks have done many releases like this in Donald Trump's favour during the election campaign.feedback

Malcolm Nance - NBC News

WikiLeaks came out with this 48 hours after Donald Trump was ranting about Barack Obama was wiretapping him.feedback

Sinan Eren - Avast Software

We can prevent attacks in real time if we were given the hooks into the mobile operating system. If we can drive a paradigm shift where mobile platforms don't shut off access, we'll be better able to detect when hackers are hiding in a mobile (phone).feedback

Robert Graham

One anti-virus researcher has told me that a virus they once suspected came from the Russians or Chinese can now be attributed to the CIA, as it matches the description perfectly to something in the leak.feedback

Mary Dejevsky

Revelations by the whistleblowing publisher seems to confirm worst fears that our every move is being monitored by intelligence services, through everyday devices in the home. Most people who have ever used a company computer and called IT will remember the unease they felt the first time the tech people “took control” of their computer and they had to watch as the cursor meandered around the screen, guided remotely by someone else. It turns out that the “someone else” may not always be the guys in your own back office. Until now, the very suspicion would have been regarded as an early sign of paranoia. No longer.feedback

Sean Spicer

You're seeing the leaks happen over and over again that come out throughout the administration, throughout government and undermine national security.feedback

Jennifer Palmieri - Clintons

He was playing with fire all during the campaign, and he's started to get burned. When you bring leaks and investigations into the political realm, you're playing with fire.feedback

Robby Mook

The problem at its core is that a country that our own Joint Chiefs of Staff said was our greatest enemy and greatest threat to our security stole information from one of our national political parties and used it against one of the candidates. Do I believe that this is going to come back to haunt the Republicans? Absolutely, I do.feedback

John McCain

I'd like to see a greater emphasis, to tell you the truth. I really would. I'd like to see a greater emphasis.feedback

Jake Williams

There's no question that there's a fire drill going on right now. It wouldn't surprise me that there are people changing careers -- and ending careers -- as we speak. I can't fathom anyone fabricated that amount of operational security concern. It rings true to me. The only people who are having that conversation are people who are engaging in nation-state-level hacking.feedback

Bob Ayers

The damage right now is relatively high-level. (But) the potential for really detailed damage will come in the following releases.feedback

Jake Williams

I can't fathom anyone fabricated that amount of operational security concern. It rings true to me.feedback

Jason Healey

If the CIA has this many, we would expect the NSA to have several times more.feedback

Edward Snowden

Why is this dangerous? Because until closed, any hacker can use the security hole the CIA left open to break into any iPhone in the world.feedback

Susan Hennessey

There is a lot of circumstantial evidence of the links between Assange and Russia. It's certainly not a coincidence that Russian military intelligence selected WikiLeaks as a distribution platform for its Democrats hack.feedback

James Lewis

This might be one explanation for the leaks – it's data to build a case that the Russian interference and connections are a secret 'deep state' plot, as the false flag bits in WikiLeaks 'shows'. Mr Trump, who last year angrily dismissed the conclusion of intelligence officials that the Russians interfered in the presidential election to boost his candidacy, has now asked both his staff and a congressional committee investigating Moscow's influence on the election to turn up evidence that Mr Obama led an effort to spy on him.feedback

Matthew D. Green

The real scandal and damaging thing is not knowing these things exist, but that the C.I.A. could be so careless with them that they leaked out.feedback

Denelle Dixon - Mozilla

The C.I.A. seems to be stockpiling vulnerabilities, and WikiLeaks seems to be using that trove for shock value rather than coordinating disclosure to the affected companies to give them a chance to fix it and protect users. Although today's disclosures are jarring, we hope this raises awareness of the severity of these issues and the urgency of collaborating on reforms.feedback

David Gutelius - Motiva

After the Snowden disclosures, the Obama administration worked hard to re-establish relationships and government-industry partnerships. This leak will challenge those ties to some extent. But I don't see companies simply walking away from the table as a result of this. Government and industry still need one another.feedback

Scott Shane - The Times

Every major publication, including The Times, published multiple stories citing the D.N.C. and [Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John] Podesta emails posted by WikiLeaks, becoming a de facto instrument of Russian intelligence.feedback

Erik Wemple

In the aftermath of the 2016 election, WikiLeaks enjoyed bragging about the impact of its repeated dumps of emails targeting Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and the Democratic National Committee.feedback

Jennifer Robinson

We are preparing potential legal remedies should the opposition come to power in Ecuador. You don't change asylum protections just because a change of government. His health is deteriorating. It's obviously far from ideal but given the difficult circumstances he is doing incredibly well, but the situation has to end and it is in the hands of the U.S. administration to end that situation.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We look forward to having a conversation with the DoJ (Department of Justice) about what the correct way forward is. I've always been willing to go to the United States provided my rights are respected because this is a case that should never have occurred.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

I stand by everything I said including the offer to go to the United States if Chelsea Manning's sentence was commuted. It's not going to be commuted (until) May. We can have many discussions to that point.feedback

Barry Pollack

There's no question that what President Obama did is not what Assange was seeking. Mr. Assange was saying that Chelsea should never have been prosecuted, never have been sentenced to decades in prison, and should have been released immediately.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

As we have already stated, WikiLeaks' sources with relation to the John Podesta and DNC leaks are not state parties. They do not come from the Russian government.feedback

Chuck Schumer

I'd say to the president-elect that this is serious, serious stuff – people's health is at stake and people's lives are a stake. This is not a time for calling names – it's a time for them to step up to the plate if they want to repeal and show us what they want us to replace it with.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

He [also] receives regular briefings from his security team, from outside sources, and he ... has agreed to receive this top-level intelligence briefing from the nation's top, top intelligence officials.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

This was the information that [Assange] put forward. I think that's a bombshell. [Trump] receives any number of different intelligence pieces of information from a number of different sources, including the ... presidential daily briefing.feedback

Barack Obama

In early September when I saw President Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that did not happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out, there were going to be some serious consequences if he did not. And in fact, we did not see further tampering of the election process. But the leaks through Wikileaks had already occurred.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

This is not due to a personal desire to influence the outcome of the election. The Democratic and Republican candidates have both expressed hostility towards whistleblowers.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

Wikileaks remains committed to publishing information that informs the public, even if many, especially those in power, would prefer not to see it. WikiLeaks must publish. It must publish and be damned.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

In recent months, WikiLeaks and I personally have come under enormous pressure to stop publishing what the Clinton campaign says about itself to itself. This is not due to a personal desire to influence the outcome of the election.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

As a result of publishing Clinton's cables and indexing her emails we are seen as domain experts on Clinton archives. So it is natural that Clinton sources come to us.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We had information that fit our editorial criteria which related to the Sanders and Clinton campaign (DNC Leaks) and the Clinton political campaign and Foundation (Podesta Emails). No-one disputes the public importance of these publications. It would be unconscionable for WikiLeaks to withhold such an archive from the public during an election.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The real victor is the US public which is better informed as a result of our work. No one disputes the public importance of these publications. It would be unconscionable for WikiLeaks to withhold such an archive from the public during an election. We cannot publish what we do not have. The campaign was unable to invoke evidence about our publications – because none exists.feedback

Marianne Ny - WikiLeaks

I welcome the fact that the investigation can now move forward via an interview with the suspect.feedback

Kelly McBride

The side that is working against a candidate has targeted a certain group of voters and is pushing a specific message to these voters. As a journalist, you want to speak to these voters in a way that is informed and reasonable.feedback

Lauren Pratapas - CNN

When preparing for interviews, we are regularly sent suggestions from rival campaigns and political parties, both solicited and unsolicited. Casting a wide net to ensure a tough and fair interview isn't just common media practice, it's smart.feedback

Adam Collins

After the mayor's election in 2011, the campaign fund set up a new email to ensure the mayor was not using government email for private or political use, which could violate city ordinance or state law. A dedicated Gmail domain allowed for better security given the growing threat of cyberattacks.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks' sources for the Podesta emails currently being published are not state parties. We have independently authenticated the emails. WikiLeaks has a decade-long, perfect record in the accurate authentication of leaked documents. The original sources of the Podesta emails are Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and his correspondents.feedback

Jason Chaffetz

Even before we get to Day One, we've got two years' worth of material already lined up.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

Meanwhile Hillary Clinton is fending off the fallout of bad headlines from Obama's health care law and of the daily WikiLeaks dump. So far the hacked emails have rather been embarrassing than damaging. But who knows what's coming next – there are still 13 days to go.feedback

Lisa Lynch

If Trump had a political career, he'd be more available for WikiLeaking.feedback

Brian Fallon

Wouldn't it be good reading to see internal discussions (about) Trump's taxes? Wikileaks isn't targeting Trump. That tells you something.feedback

Finn Brunton

He tends not to think about people, he thinks about systems. What he wants to do is interfere with the machinery of government regardless of who is in charge.feedback

John Podesta

I don't want to bug you today. The memo pasted below concerns a possible invitation to the G-20 meeting on November 15.feedback

John Podesta

Barack, Good meeting yesterday. When we got off on the idea of creating an emergency national economic council, we left unresolved two questions that were contained in my 2 page cover memo.feedback

James Clapper

Two weeks ago DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and I released a joint statement saying that the recent compromise of emails was directed by the Russian Government. The emails released on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. Going after the U.S. political organizations is a new and aggressive spin on the political cycle.feedback

Hillary Clinton

You are very clearly quoting from WikiLeaks. What is really important about WikiLeaks is that the Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans. They have hacked American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions. Then they have given that information to WikiLeaks for the purpose of putting it on the internet. This has come from the highest levels of the Russian government.feedback

Hillary Clinton

They have hacked American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions. Then they have given that information to WikiLeaks for the purpose of putting it on the Internet.feedback

John Kirby

While our concerns about WikiLeaks are longstanding, any suggestion that Secretary Kerry or the State Department were involved in shutting down WikiLeaks is false. Reports that Secretary Kerry had conversations with Ecuadorian officials about this are simply untrue. Period.feedback

Mandy Grunwald

Maybe you think the Deutsche Bank speech takes the sting out of the Goldman report – but I am concerned that the passage below will exacerbate not improve the situation.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I think that's a message worth recalling today when so many hardworking American families, and I add European families feel like they're falling further and further behind, while they see, in their view, the playing field becoming more unlevel, and feeling as though it doesn't matter how hard they work because the game is rigged against them.feedback

Dan Schwerin

It's definitely not as tough or pointed as we would write it now, but it's more more than most people would assume she was saying in paid speeches.feedback

Mandy Grunwald

First, the remarks below make it sound like HRC DOESNT think the game is rigged – only that she recognizes that the public thinks so. They are angry. She isn't.feedback

Hillary Clinton

And if there are issues, if there's wrongdoing, people have to be held accountable and we have to try to deter future bad behavior, because the public trust is at the core of both a free market economy and a democracy.feedback

Hillary Clinton

So even if it may not be 100 percent true, if the perception is that somehow the game is rigged, that should be a problem for all of us, and we have to be willing to make that absolutely clear. And if there are issues, if there's wrongdoing, people have to be held accountable and we have to try to deter future bad behavior, because the public trust is at the core of both a free market economy and a democracy.feedback

Stephen Miller

Hillary Clinton has only contempt for the working people of this country.feedback

Mary Podesta

[T]his show is receiving uniquely scathing reviews – on one hand would be interesting to see what the controversy is about, but on other it may not be worth the money for all of us?feedback

Russ Feingold

He did some executive orders with the aspects of waiting periods. But what we all need is to win the Senate, have her there, and then put pressure on the House. And we might win the House.feedback

Jennifer Palmieri - Clintons

I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn't understand if they become evangelical.feedback

John Halpin

It's an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I think we have to have a concerted plan to increase trade already under the current circumstances ... and we have to resist, protectionism, other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade. My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Running for office in our country takes a lot of money, and candidates have to go out and raise it. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody's watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.feedback

Sean McGarvey

These types of decisions made by this administration get dumped in the presidential race and it's kind of unfair. We don't like all of Clinton's energy policies but we think it's reasonable.feedback

Nikki Budzinski

Could we mention that ... as we transition HRC wants to create more careers within the new energy economy? Careers is their buzz word.feedback

Walter Isaacson

We don't have one big national election system, so it's going to be a mess if the Russians keep hacking in [and] leaking material through WikiLeaks or other places.feedback

Juanita Broaddrick

Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported. I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me, I am now 73….it never goes away.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We're going to need ... an army to defend us from the pressure that is already starting to arrive.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

As Wikileaks stands under threat so does the freedom of expression and the health of all our societies.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

Whistleblowers often take very significant efforts to bring us material and often at very significant risks.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The real story is what these emails contain and they show collusion. We have not disclosed our source, and of course, this is a diversion that's being pushed by the Hillary Clinton campaign.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

Would Hillary Clinton have won anyway? Maybe, maybe not. I think that it's completely up in the air now, and so the result of the nomination process has no political legitimacy.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The emails that we have released are different sets of documents to the documents of those [that] people have analyzed.feedback

Olga Gerovassili

The Greek government is demanding explanations from the IMF over whether seeking to create default conditions in Greece, shortly ahead of the referendum in Britain, is the fund's official position.feedback

Christophe Peschoux

A detention can be legal, all the existing legal procedure may have been implemented, and still be arbitrary. And in this case the Working Group has decided that the detention may be legal, but it is arbitrary.feedback

Poul M. Thomsen - International Monetary Fund

Look you, Mrs. Merkel, you face a question: you have to think about what is more costly, to go ahead without the IMF–would the Bundestag say 'The IMF is not on board?', or [to] pick the debt relief that we think that Greece needs in order to keep us on board?feedback

Poul M. Thomsen - International Monetary Fund

What is going to bring it all to a decision point? In the past there has been only one time when the decision has been made and then that was when [the Greeks] were about to run out of money seriously and to default. […] And possibly this is what is going to happen again. In that case, it drags on until July, and clearly the Europeans are not going to have any discussions for a month before the Brexit….feedback

Kristinn Hrafnsson - WikiLeaks

The warrant is still in place. If he leaves the embassy we will make every effort to arrest him.feedback

Philip Lynch

There seems to me a real risk that if he left the embassy that he may expose himself to arrest or questioning.feedback

Melinda Taylor

An allegation of rape is still outstanding and a European arrest warrant in place, so the UK continues to have a legal obligation to extradite Mr Assange to Sweden. We have been consistently clear that Mr Assange has never been arbitrarily detained by the UK but is, in fact, voluntarily avoiding lawful arrest by choosing to remain in the Ecuadorean embassy.feedback

François Bonnet

While the US wants to protect itself with incredibly sophisticated surveillance systems, the first lesson is that these systems can't truly protect them. The second lesson is that these systems are destroying America's reputation as a democratic power.feedback

François Bonnet

Alas no (we haven't published everything). These are important documents which I think tell very different stories of surveillance and espionage. We are going to publish them in several parts so that we can have enough time – each time – to analyse the exact scope of these documents.feedback

François Bonnet

What it tells us is that suspicion is at the heart of relations with their allies.feedback

François Bonnet

It's not new but all the same – on this scale -we need to understand the National Security Agency and the CIA's errors which have undermined the image of the United States as a truly democratic country.feedback

François Bonnet

More and more people are suggesting France because these people are fighting for our liberty. And for that reason, I think it's essential that France and other European countries grant political asylum to Assange and Snowden.feedback

François Bonnet

We have been a longstanding partner of Wikileaks and we were one of the first French media outlets to support the whistleblower Julian Assange. So what happened (this time)? Well while completely ignoring international treaties, the US massively spied on governments and foreign powers including one of their best allies, in this case the French government.feedback

François Bonnet

Julian Assange is still very active. At the same time, I want to highlight the unbearable situation that he has found himself in over the past 3 years. He lives as a recluse in a small room in the Equador embassy in London and he can't leave without the threat of immediate arrest. Meanwhile Edward Snowden lives as a recluse in Russia. So I think that a country the size of France should grant both Assange and Snowden asylum.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The French people have a right to know their elected government is subject to hostile surveillance.feedback

Per Samuelson

The bottom line is, after the autumn of 2010, the prosecutor did nothing for more than four years – that's clear breach of Swedish law. That has hurt Mr Assange severely and it has also hurt both of the women who have not had their case tried for over four years and it hurts the court because witnesses forget, time passes on and all the evidence is much worse now than it was back in 2010.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

Its not easy being a party leader at a distance with a 9 hour time delay… I went to sleep last night, during the night this whole kerfuffle broke out in Australia, I wasn't aware of it until this morning. Leslie didn't speak to me to address any issues or concerns.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

I ask President Obama to do the right thing. The United States must renounce its witch-hunt against WikiLeaks. The United States must dissolve its FBI investigation.feedback

Nicholas Phillips

The majority has concluded that the Swedish public prosecutor was a judicial authority, within both the framework decision and the extradition act.feedback

Ricardo Patino

The government of Ecuador is evaluating the request from Julian Assange and whatever decision it takes regarding him will take into account respect for the norms and principles of international law, just as Ecuador's traditional policies are sensitive to human rights.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We have had more legal threats and attempted lawsuits by banks than any other organisations. None have been successful and I do not expect them to be successful in the future.feedback

Phil Shiner

US and UK forces cannot turn a blind eye on the basis that it wasn't their soldiers doing the torturing and that's what has happened and is revealed in these logs. Both states have the clearest of international obligations to take definite and effective action to stop the torture by the Iraqis. That they did not makes them complicit.feedback

Alex Gibney

Well there's a wonderful David and Goliath quality about WikiLeaks. The idea that a few guys with laptops in their backpacks can make a huge difference, can suddenly collect these secrets and then publish them to the world I think it's a fantastic idea.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

We hope to correct some of that attack on the truth that occurred before the war, during the war and which has continued since the war officially ended.feedback

Antonio Tajani

He said he believed in Galileo, and then after this incident he sent a letter saying so. You know, WikiLeaks isn't the Bible.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

There is no stopping the publishing process at this stage. Great care has been taken to make sure that Mr Snowden can't be pressured by any state to stop the publications process. The United States, by cancelling his passport has left him for the moment marooned in Russia.feedback

Dmitry Medvedev

These leaks show the whole world the cynicism of the assessments and at times the judgments that prevail in the foreign policy of various states – in this case the US.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

Our work with WikiLeaks continues unabated. We are stepping up publishing for Cablegate and other materials. They will be shortly appearing with the help of our newspaper partners.feedback

P.J. Crowley

The people in Afghanistan and Pakistan will be do exactly what people in the United States and other countries are doing.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

I call on Eric Holder today to immediately drop the ongoing national security investigation against WikiLeaks or resign.feedback
