President-elect Donald Trump made it clear on Thursday that he does not particularly agree with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, but rather he simply wants to inform American citizens of the deep seeded corruption throughout their federal government.  

"The dishonest media likes saying that I am in Agreement with Julian Assange - wrong," Trump wrote.  "I simply state what he states, it is for the people ... to make up their own minds as to the truth. The media lies to make it look like I am against 'Intelligence' when in fact I am a big fan!"

On Wednesday, Trump quoted Julian Assange from an interview on Tuesday.  "Julian Assange said 'a 14 year old could have hacked Podesta' - why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!" Trump tweeted.
