Is this the October surprise?
MSNBC’s Jesse Rodriguez posted what could be interpreted as an ominous reemark on social media last week regarding Julian Assange.
Assange, planned to drop the “October surprise” Tues evening in New York time.
Assange was set to make an announcement from his balcony in London on Wednesday Morning UK time.
It would have been very bad news for Hillary Clinton. Basically handing the election over to Donald Trump. It is very bad news that will absolutely shock the public.
Some reports say Obama has negotiated on Clintons’ behalf with Wikileaks to not expose the “October Surprise” in exchange for Assange’s eventual release, as he has been hiding in a Ecuadorian Embassy. He has been holed up for two years to avoid extradition. Police have been stationed at the compound since Mr Assange requested political asylum from Ecuador in June 2012, ready to arrest him if he sets foot outside.
Wikileaks abruptly canceled the much-anticipated announcement on Tuesday, according to NBC News. The announcement had been expected to be founder Julian Assange’s long-promised document dump on Hillary Clinton.
NBC’s Jesse Rodriguez reported that the Tuesday announcement — which was to come from the balcony of London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange has sought sanctuary for years – was canceled due to “security concerns”.
Due to security concerns at the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange's balcony announcement on Tues has been cancelled, per @wikileaks

Assange and his supporters have long claimed that his personal safety is at risk due to the danger he represents to Clinton’s presidential ambitions. In August, liberal commentator Bob Beckel suggested in a TV appearance that Assange be murdered, proclaiming that someone should “shoot the son of a bitch!”

Assange himself has also recently hinted publicly that a DNC staffer Seth Rich, who was murdered this summer in Washington DC, had been the source for Wikileaks’ document dump on the DNC. And that Rich’s role in the leaks was linked to his death. The media has called it a “botched robbery” , obviously that’s a false narrative. Nothing was taken off him and it appeared to be a hit-job with no leads to date.
Last month it was reported that a would-be assassin entered the embassy to assassinate Assange. Fortunately, security guards scared off the attacker. It looks like whoever was behind that Assassination attempt has made it clear they do not like what Wikileaks is about to release.
Wikileaks has said it will hold off its “announcement” indefinitely.
