Trump Once Called for Death Penalty for WikiLeaks

President-elect Donald Trump is using Julian Assange’s remarks to question Russian hacking allegations, but in 2010 he called WikiLeaks “disgraceful” and suggested there be a “death penalty” for their actions, CNN reports.

Said Trump then: “I think it’s disgraceful, I think there should be like death penalty or something.”
