Former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin apologized via Facebook to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, after watching his interview with Sean Hannity Tuesday night.
She expressed regret for her comments made to Assange in 2008 when he published emails from her own email account.
“To Julian Assange: I apologize,” Palin wrote. “This important information that finally opened people’s eyes to democrat candidates and operatives would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange.”
In the Fox News interview Tuesday, Assange told Hannity that President Obama has not been honest with Americans and, in so doing, has deliberately tried to “delegitimize” Donald Trump’s win.
In the post, Palin went on to say that she was sorry for condemning Assange when he published emails from her account in 2008. But, Palin added, there must be a line drawn.
“As I said at the time of being targeted and my subsequent condemnation, though,” she wrote. “The line must be drawn before our troops or innocent lives deserving protection would be put at risk as a result of published emails.”
