Come Saturday Morning: The WikiLeaks Conspiracy Theory That Wasn’t

A number of people who should know better but just have massive hate-ons for Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are all freaked out because WL tweeted that Hastings had contacted a WL attorney shortly before his accident to tell of his suspicions that the FBI was investigating him:

Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him.

Some people have taken that tweet as an indication that WikiLeaks is starting an ohmigod-the-Feebs-killed-Hastings rumor, when all it seems to be is just “hey, Michael Hastings, who’s chatted with us before, chatted with us recently WRT his FBI suspicions”.

Chillax, please.
