Surprise! The October Surprise Has Been Postponed

Pretty sure Donald Trump is crying into his taco bowl this morning as Julian Assange and his Russian pals at WikiLeaks aren't ready to quite deliver that "Clinton-destroying bombshell" that Roger Stone promised yet.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said on Tuesday the organization would publish around one million documents related to three governments and the U.S. election before the end of the year.

Assange denied that the release of documents related to the U.S. election was specifically geared to damage Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and said he had been misquoted in that regard.

Assange also signaled changes in the way Wikileaks is organized and funded, saying the group would soon open itself to membership. He said the group was looking to expand its work beyond the 100 media outlets it already works with.

About all that Assange has left is his "credibility" in delivering doctored leaks fed to him through Moscow and even that's starting to look pretty threadbare at this point.  If he can't deliver the October Surprise in October, it's not going to be much good to Assange, Trump, or Putin if whatever it is drops in the lame duck session while President-elect Clinton is taking over from President Obama.

Vladimir can't be very happy with Assange or Trump right now.  He's got a White House to try to pressure over Syria and you know, he's working hard to put a Moscow-friendly Republican in the Oval Office, really hard you guys.  It's exhausting being a mastermind.

Maybe this time he's finally outsmarted himself.
