Nick Davies' Deep Throat
Kindergarten leaks - oh so trustworthy.
LONDON (Rixstep) — Nick Davies of the Guardian claims to have been given 'unauthorised access' to a number of authentic documents in the Marianne Ny case file against Julian Assange.
This follows closely on the announcement the day before by Assange and others that there would be a new 'smear' starting within 24 hours.
The documents sent to Davies add little to existing knowledge of the case but they seem to have been accompanied by an explanatory letter written by someone outside the legal process.
And the most extraordinary: important parts of the case files seem to have been deliberately withheld - namely those parts previously cited by James Catlin and Björn Hurtig as decisive to the realisation that there in fact is no case at all.
What's Not There
The documents Nick Davies' 'deep throat' sent paint a cohesive picture of a 'cad' rather than a rapist. As if someone went through a lot of time and trouble to revise the testimony of the girls to make it less contradictory and more convincing.
The main flaw - and it's a huge flaw - is that this new version of events ('Story Two') is completely at odds with the first one ('Story One'). It further contradicts the testimony given by Anna Ardin to the tabloid Aftonbladet on 21 August.
Who's Claes Borgström and how did he get involved in this case? Why would a politician become involved as legal counsel on the plaintiff side in a rape case when the plaintiff already has the assistance of a state prosecutor? Why would a legal counsel represent two plaintiffs at once? Something's never been right there.
But Borgström - who insists he doesn't want to talk about the case beforehand - was ostensibly miffed by Björn Hurtig who said he could prove Assange is innocent and could make extradition a 'moot point'. Borgström then contacted the tabloid media to boast that he too had access to secrets about the case Hurtig didn't know about. Good for him.
And then the following day an early Xmas gift lands in the inbox of Nick Davies. Coincidental as well with Julian Assange's release on bail - something known today to be strongly opposed by Borgström's friend Marianne Ny, regardless of her earlier denials.
If the bad guys fail first time around in smearing and harming Julian Assange so the Stockholm prosecutor has to dismiss all charges, if they're so intent on evil that they refuse to give up, if they're prepared to fabricate stories to get at him again, then they should remember the first rule of smears: don't contradict yourselves.
If I am able to reveal what I know, everyone will realise this is all a charade. If I could tell the British courts, I suspect it would make extradition a moot point.
