PressTV: US will use full force of law’on WikiLeaks

Yet WikiLeaks is still withholding Trump's tax returns. Is this why Pence isn't pushing for extradition of Assange for espionage?

US Vice President Pence has said  the Trump administration will “use the full force of the law” to go after those involved in WikiLeaks’ latest episode after the whistleblower website released thousands of documents that reveal the CIA’s hacking and spying secrets.

“Trafficking in national security information, as is alleged WikiLeaks has done here, is a very serious offense,” Pence said during an interview on Thursday.  “It represents a compromise of the security of the American people.”

“This president and this administration will take that very seriously and use the full force of the law and resources of the United States to hold all of those to account that were involved,” he added.

“If proven to be true and confirmed publicly, I can assure you that no resource will be spared in holding those [to] account that have leaked information that could well constitute a compromise of methods and a compromise of national security,” he added.

Meanwhile, the White House said on Thursday that President Donald Trump believes that the CIA’s systems are outdated.

“He believes that the systems at the CIA are outdated and need to be updated,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.

In addition, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange denounced the CIA over its “devastating incompetence” for failing to protect its hacking secrets.

On Tuesday, WikiLeaks published nearly 9,000 documents it said were part of a huge trove leaked from the CIA.

The explosive documents exposed by WikiLeaks showed that hackers of the US intelligence apparatus can turn a TV into a listening device, bypass popular encryption apps, and possibly control one’s car.

They also revealed that the agency has routinely used techniques that enable its hackers to disguise themselves as hacking groups based in Russia and other countries.

    Hey Pence: Government secrecy is the root of all our problems. It is enforced by the full military force and power of government. Its only true purpose is to cover up government lies and crimes against citizens and humanity. End secrecy now. Abolish all secret agencies like the CIA, NSA and all the rest. Otherwise we are a totalitarian state. Shame on you. Tell us the truth about Sandy Hook Hoax or the 9/11 false flag by Israel to get us into another war for them. We are now illegally invading Syria. How about sending your family to get killed over there? Or Trump’s?

    Isn’t National security the biggest threat to the POTUS themselves Mr. Pence?
