The FBI was undaunted and went to Denmark instead.

In 2011, the Obama administration sent a planeload of FBI agents to Iceland to frame Julian Assange for a crime he didn't commit. The move was intended to shut down WikiLeaks. The operation failed when Iceland learned of the FBI's plans.

Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson kicked the FBI out of Iceland when he learned they were on a mission to frame Julian Assange.

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) -- According to the former Icelandic Interior Minister, Ogmundur Jonasson, the FBI sent a planeload of agents to his country to frame Julian Assange in 2011. Fortunately, he intervened and kicked the agents out of the country. The agents then went to Denmark to continue their mission.

The remarks from the Interior Minister are the first official, public acknowledgement that this event occurred. It reveals the depravity and desperation of the U.S. government to cover up its own crimes against humanity. It reveals how corrupt the Obama administration has been.

Rather than deserving Nobel prizes and accolades, Obama and his team deserve to go to prison for trying to frame a foreign citizen for a crime he did not commit.

Assange has sense taken refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he remains today in a state of virtual house arrest. He continues to enjoy asylum on behalf of the Ecuadorian embassy. Swedish authorities want Assange for questioning. He is accused of sexual assault in that country.

It is possible he is guilty, but it is also possible he could have been framed for the crime. It is impossible to tell because few facts are known as the FBI, which is very powerful, has attempted to frame him for a crime he did not commit. Many governments certainly have motives to shut down WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks is enjoying much of the credit for the failure of the Clinton presidential campaign. Clinton's ratings dropped following a series of leaks from her own campaign staff. Those leaks involved emails from her top aides which revealed a pattern of corruption and disdain for ordinary citizens. The impact was likely decisive, with Clinton losing by narrow margins in key states. Without WikiLeaks to dissuade her potential voters, she might have won.

The fact is, until the election of Donald Trump the United States has been in the hands of corrupt, globalist elites whose primary goal has been to enrich themselves. The rest of the world sees this, but Americans do not, blinded by ersatz patriotism, distracting and fake news, and pop culture.

You are "the minister" who refused to cooperate with the FBI because you suspected their agents on mission in Iceland were of trying to frame Julian Assange. Do you confirm this?

"Yes. What happened was that in June 2011, US authorities made some approaches to us indicating they had knowledge of hackers wanting to destroy software systems in Iceland. I was a minister at the time. They offered help. I was suspicious, well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand!

"Later in the summer, in August, they sent a planeload of FBI agents to Iceland seeking our cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

"Since they had not been authorised by the Icelandic authorities to carry out police work in Iceland and since a crack-down on WikiLeaks was not on my agenda, to say the least, I ordered that all cooperation with them be promptly terminated and I also made it clear that they should cease all activities in Iceland immediately.

"It was also made clear to them that they were to leave the country. They were unable to get permission to operate in Iceland as police agents, but I believe they went to other countries, at least to Denmark. I also made it clear at the time that if I had to take sides with either WikiLeaks or the FBI or CIA, I would have no difficulty in choosing: I would be on the side of WikiLeaks."

Do you think that whistleblowers should be protected?

"Yes, I think that it is very important. The role played by whistleblowers could be seen as public service. We owe a lot to Chelsea Manning. We owe a lot to Edward Snowden. We owe a lot to Assange. We owe a lot to WikiLeaks. It's not only about the Iraqi war and other illegal military aggression and immoral power-political manoeuvres, but also the recent international trade agreements TISA, TTIP and CETA."
