Rove Might Be Trying To “Pull A Siegelman” With Julian Assange
Fredrik Reinfeldt and George W. Bush
Is Karl Rove helping to export American-style political prosecutions to Scandinavia? Is “Bush’s brain” trying to fashion a bogus criminal case in Sweden against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, much like the one he helped build against former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman?
The answer to both questions appears to be yes, based on arecent report by Andrew Kreig at Huffington Post. On top of that, we have information from Rove’s own Web site that confirms his close ties to Sweden, the subject of an earlier Legal Schnauzer post. And we have unearthed a video from Rove’s 2008 visit to Timbro, a “free market” think tank in Sweden.
Circumstantial evidence continues to build that Rove is behind, at least in part, the Assange case. If so, why? We will address that question in a moment.
