HEROIC Assange Agrees to Extradition if US Releases Chelsea Manning

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will agree to be extradited to the United States if President Barack Obama grants clemency to the former US soldier Chelsea Manning, jailed for leaking documents, Wikileaks says.

"If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ (US Department of Justice) case," WikiLeaks wrote on Twitter.

Manning is currently serving a 35-year sentence in solitary confinement for handing over the 700,000 sensitive documents from the US State Department.

  1. As miserable as life might be in the Ecuadorian Embassy, Assange would be a fool to be extradited to the U.S.

    I don't know what charges he'd be facing. But having gone through the federal legal system myself, I can say he won't get anywhere near a fair hearing of his case.

    Assange is doing far more good where he is.

  2. It's an empty offer. The empire doesn't do business that way. We are the intended audience but why is it important to Assange, and by association, the Wikileaks brand, that we feel he's sincere?

    1. What reason has he given you to think he isn't sincere? If it is a deception from assange or wikileaks it would be the 1st. I will take him at his word until there is some evidence to suggest otherwise.

    2. Because anyone with the knowledge of how this government operates, which he certainly has, would know better. C'mon, you mean I really need to tell a regular EPJ reader this?

  3. Will he make it to the US alive? Does he have that must confidence in Trump not to sell him out? I would not trust the UNITED STATES CORP (or any of it's affiliates) for one second with my life and well being.
