The report begins: "Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, today pledged to make public the confidential tax details of 2,000 wealthy and prominent individuals, after being passed the data by a Swiss banker who claims the information potentially reveals instances of money-laundering and large-scale illegal tax evasion."

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Oh dear! Oh dear! What shall I do? Am I on the list? I have to make up a real good story on how I made the money, or Ill go to jail. I'll tell them I found it! Even if I'm not on the list, where can I hide my millions from the tax man? I can't trust those Swiss bankers on the Cayman Islands anymore. Where can I go? Who can I bribe? Oh dear, oh dear!

Singapore, Caymans, al and we have relations with them when they profit from people stealing money from us. We should cut off all trade until any American who keeps money in those countries has their numbers reported. We must stop the thieving rich!

Oh! Wait! They are ruling us! We can't do anything because our Gov. works for them!

Pray for Julian Assange and this good banker. They have to be in serious danger. Bless them both!

One would think that now Julian Assange is on the same side as the US gov't. in that they have a great deal to gain in tax income. Of course, that is unless there are a few US politicians on the list.

These tax evaders should be stripped of all their money stashed overseas, and it should be the first step in redistributing wealth fairly. Equally important, we should end our sickening plutocracy by making it illegal for candidates for office to receive private gifts or to use their own money. This will clean up our elections process. - G. Beres

I hope Assange manages to disrupt and shut down his 'critics' in the USA political system and those phonies who trumped up phony rape charges against him while he's at it. Tip the cart over!
