Gutfeld: ‘Wrong’ For Conservatives To Rely On and Cheer For Assange, ‘Six Years Ago, Conservatives Were Calling For His Head’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” FNC host Greg Gutfeld argued it was “wrong” for conservatives to rely on and praise WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and asked, “What if Assange actually had Trump’s medical records, or had Trump’s tax returns, do you think that there would be conservative leaders sitting there cheering him on? I think not.”

Gutfeld said, [relevant remarks begin around 8:00] after blasting Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email conduct and the timing of the FBI’s release of its report into Clinton’s emails, that it was “wrong” to rely on Assange.

He continued, “Six years ago, conservatives were calling for his head, for his arrest, for the government to do something about WikiLeaks, and now they’re cheering him on, because why? He’s trying to manipulate the election to hurt the Democrats. But what if were — the shoe were on the other foot? What if Assange actually had Trump’s medical records, or had Trump’s tax returns, do you think that there would be conservative leaders sitting there cheering him on? I think not.”
