Portraying the great sculptor, Auguste Rodin, Gerard Depardieu, in the 1988 movie, Camille Claudel, said to his paramour, a remarkable artist in her own right, ”Never think of surfaces, only of depths.” This insight merits broad application. In considering the genesis of the Russian-collusion narrative, we must not be so entranced with the day-to-day revelations concerning this scandal that we give short shrift to what lies beneath.
If Julian Assange’s asylum were to be revoked in any way, dangerously inept intelligence agencies, especially the CIA, would continue to operate outside the purview of public vision. We would have lost an important public voice and all pretenses of free press.

The Guardian recently published a patently disingenuous article which described WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange hacking into the communications at the Ecuadorian embassy where he has been arbitrarily confined since 2012, and was cut off from the outside world since late March of this year.
Reports casting Mifsud as a Russian intelligence asset do not object to the concept that Mifsud worked as a spy. Their claim simply depicts him as working for the wrong master, and in so-doing, rests the beating heart of the Trump-Russia-collusion scandal on a single inaccurate premise.
Thanks to corporate press’ overzealous attempts to paint Mifsud at the center of the Trump-Russia scandal, the revelation that he was nothing of the sort removes yet another central tenant from the Trump-Russia debacle.
No one can say when Julian Assange’s basic human right to freedom of speech will be returned to him. However, we can confidently predict that the continued support of a small but intrepid group of activists standing in solidarity with Julian outside the embassy will not waiver any time soon.
