The Founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, just shocked the world with a huge announcement. He wants to make a deal with the devil. The 46-year-old Australian computer programmer and publisher have agreed to accept extradition to the US, saying he will leave the Ecuadorian Embassy where he has been under diplomatic asylum for almost five years, but only if Obama will grant him one huge favor.
Assange may be the most hated man on earth among liberals. Many credit Assange and WikiLeaks with exposing the rampant corruption in Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, so they’d love nothing more than to see him extradited. However, they’re sure to be shocked by the deal Assange is willing to strike to give them their wish.
Wikileaks sent out a tweet on Thursday providing the details of the proposed deal:
According to a report by The Gateway Pundit, Assange wants Obama to grant a presidential pardon to Chelsea Manning, who is currently serving a 35-year sentence in solitary confinement for giving WikiLeaks over 700,000 highly sensitive documents related to US intelligence and military operations.
Fox News reports that the ACLU and several LGBT groups are lobbying for Chelsea Manning’s release from prison at Forth Leavenworth, Kansas. Many are hoping that President Obama will grant clemency to the 29-year old transgender individual before he leaves office this month. Manning has reportedly attempted suicide twice while in prison.
The White House has released a statement saying it does not plan on granting Manning clemency although numerous other news outlets claim that Manning is on President Obama’s “short list” for a pardon.
Assange’s lawyer, Barry Pollack, attached a message to the tweet addressed to US Attorney General Loretta Lynch who said that the DoJ lacks any legitimate basis for continuing the investigation into his client.
Only time will tell if Assange is successful in making his deal with the devil. After exposing the DNC, the Clinton Campaign, and the corrupt Washington, DC establishment, he has too many enemies to count.
In contrast, Assange has millions of anti-establishment Americans who think he deserves a presidential pardon and the full dismissal of the ongoing investigation against him and WikiLeaks. Popular social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Gab are buzzing with speculation as to whether or not this controversial hero will triumph over his adversaries or possibly face the death penalty if extradited to the United States.
