US special ops should be used to assassinate Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, liberal Democrat strategist Bob Beckel once said during an interview on Fox.

“A dead man can’t leak stuff,” Beckel told Fox Business’ Eric Bolling in a 2010 interview. “This guy’s a traitor, he’s treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I’m not for the death penalty, so… there’s only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch.”
The remarks were highlighted by the media organization Wednesday amid a media meltdown over the source of the Democrat National Committee leaks which have led to the resignation of four DNC employees.
On Tuesday, Assange suggested on a Dutch television program that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich could possibly be behind the devastating leaks exposing how Democrat operatives loyal to Hillary Clinton rigged the nomination against opponent Bernie Sanders.
Beckel was later fired from Fox and hired as a CNN election commentator in October 2015.
Wikileaks also compiled a video showing how Beckel’s not the only one who’s publicly called for the extrajudicial murder of Assange.
