CIA Director Pompeo Now Says WikiLeaks a "Hostile Intelligence Service"

Washington, April 15 (RHC),-- In the United States, CIA chief Mike Pompeo blasted WikiLeaks Thursday as a "hostile intelligence service," in a stark reversal from his previous praise for the group.  Pompeo made the remarks at a Washington, D.C., think tank in his first public address as director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

The CIA director called WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a "narcissist" and a "fraud" who would have sided with dictators in the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. 

Last July, then-Congressmember Pompeo praised WikiLeaks for publishing e-mails hacked from the servers of the Democratic National Committee, writing in a tweet that has since been deleted, "Need further proof that the fix was in from Pres. Obama on down?  BUSTED: 19,252 e-mails from DNC Leaked by Wikileaks."
