Though the death was ruled a suicide, WikiLeaks protests that it was foul play.
Approximately a month after Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, released a batch of incriminating Hillary Clinton emails, his reputable lawyer, John Jones, was found dead.
BeforeItsNews reports that Jones, 48, was killed on August 15, 2016, when he was run over a by a commuter train in Britain. Police arrived at the West Hampstead train station in North London at 7:07 AM and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Though authorities were quick to rule the lawyer’s death a suicide, WikiLeaks has countered that claim, stating it was foul play.
Jones was a top human rights lawyer who worked on the same team as Amal Clooney, wife of George Clooney. His specialty was extradition, war crimes, and counter-terrorism. Many of the cases he took concerned former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Lebanon and Cambodia.
To say that his presence and activism will be missed in the world is an understatement. The lawyer leaves behind a wife, two children, and a law consultancy.
It is important to relay that shortly before the Jones’ death, Democratic Strategist and CNN host, Bob Beckel, called for Assange’s assassination on TV. His exact words were “Just kill the sonofabitch!” Considering that at least 33 anti-Clinton campaigners have been found dead under mysterious circumstances, it’d likely be wise for the lawyer’s death to be investigated further.
Little else is known about the situation. However, it has been confirmed that Assange is preparing to release a strategic “October Surprise” to further derail Clinton’s campaign. Though he has said it before, Julian affirms that the newly-leaked information will definitely put her behind bars.
