Hillary Clinton "should resign"
Okay, you can stop laughing at this point. No, really. Come on, stop.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange attracted more attention to himself today, but for something he did. Rather, it was for something he said:
"...she should resign if it can be shown that she was responsible for ordering U.S. diplomatic figures to engage in espionage in the United Nations, in violation of the international covenants to which the U.S. has signed up. Yes, she should resign over that."
Assange made his comments to TIME, and you can read more of what he said here.
Whether he intended to, Assange has turned the story about WikiLeaks into one about him. That arrogance could undermine his quest (if that's what it is) to force governments (and businesses) to come clean about their activities. He would be wise to retain as low a profile as possible, recognizing of course that he cannot hide for long.
