WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday threatened to sue former Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., on “day one” if he is chosen to replace James Comey as director of the FBI.
There were multiple reports Thursday saying Rogers, a former FBI official and former head of the House Intelligence Committee, is in consideration to be chosen as the Trump administration’s nominee to head the FBI.
Assange responded to a tweet from WikiLeaks, which links to an article about a January interview Rogers gave on CNN in which he said Assange is “wanted for the rape of a minor.” WikiLeaks said that Rogers “slandered” Assange.
During that interview, Rogers said in response to then-President-elect Trump’s support of WikiLeaks that he needs “someone to explain to him who Julian Assange is.”
