Pamela Anderson Defends Julian Assange to Tucker Carlson: He Wasn’t Trying to ‘Get Trump Elected’

Pamela Anderson sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight to defend Julian Assange.

Anderson’s connection to Assange has been known for a while now, and as she told Carlson, Hollywood hasn’t given him much support because they’re “big Clinton supporters.”

“His intention,” she argued, “was not to get Trump elected, it was to give true information so people could make educated decision about the person they wanted to vote for. So people want to blame somebody, and so they blame him.”

Carlson somewhat bewilderedly asked her about her connection to Vladimir Putin and the idea he and Assange “were working together.”

“It’s crazy,” she said. “Everyone likes to blame Russia when anything goes wrong in America.”

She talked about how she’s “spoken at the Kremlin many times” before going back to talking about Assange:

“Assange is just an incredible person… He’s always been like this, since a child. He’s wanted to––he’s been worried about doing the right thing. And I think he’s very brave, and he’s really in deep trouble, I think, for his health… He’s never been in the sunlight for six years, that’s already harmful, and now he’s been cut off––no internet, no phone calls, no visitors, and they’re trying to squeeze him, I think, out of there.”
