I was surprised that you’d pose the question in you opening (or second) paragraph as the answer is so obvious. Further down the page I saw you were being rhetorical, yes of course “The Resistance” (i.e. the deep state supporters) hate Assange because he and his campaign did so much to not only torpedo hillary’s campaign, but to expose what an utterly corrupt and self interested person she is.
But would step around blaming “The Trump Administration” when the same policy was followed by the administration of the peacemaker and joybringer Obama. Neither of these administrations was responsible for formulating the policy of course, shutting down free speech and throwing a screen of secercy around government operations are long term deep state / MIC goals.
