WIKILEAKS: Julian Assange Agrees To US Extradition On One Condition

Assange

WikiLeaks announced Thursday that its founder Julian Assange has agreed to be extradited to the United States if President Barack Obama grants clemency to incarcerated former U.S. Army soldier Chelsea Manning.

Manning — then known as “Bradley” — was court-martialed in 2013 for passing nearly 1 million classified documents to WikiLeaks in 2012.

“If Obama grants Manning clemency, Assange will agree to U.S. extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ [Department of Justice] case,” the Internet transparency group tweeted.

Rumors that Manning was on the sort list to receive a commuted sentence from President Obama first broke on Wednesday.

Assange has lived in asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012.

The Obama administration opened an investigation into Assange and WikiLeaks in relation to purported violations of the Espionage Act of 1917.

    The minute his feet would touch American soil, he’d be dead. Even if it was after Obama, he would still be done in. You do anything against the Clintons, you’re going to commit suicide, even if you didn’t. I would just love to see him able to go home to his family.

    Manning got the sentence he deserves. There should be no pardon or clemency for this guy who thinks he is a gal.

    I doubt that Julian Assange is going to get anywhere near the United States.

    If he comes here and is charged, cleared, or sentenced, will Sweden put an extradite hold on him then?? That could be problematic for him.

    Assange won’t do any such thing. His site still going strong and America tried to have him arrested during this election, someone climbed his balcony and tried to kill him, most likely with a shot to the back of the head so it would be called a suicide and they shut his site down here. Assange is no fool.

    Assange, are you nuts? Trusting the Liar-in-Chief to forgive you?

      Not so dumb. Any actions against him would occur AFTER 20 Jan, 2017. No more Obama or Lynch. And the SCOTUS would have a new majority.

      Naw his site still going strong and you might be interested in this link concerning the 100 most damning leaks on the DNC.
