According to RT:




WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange would leave his Ecuadorian embassy refuge and accept extradition to the US if whistleblower Chelsea Manning was granted clemency, the media organization has suggested.


I thought Obama was already considering this. That is a bold move!



I'd love to say more, but a bit speechless.

I'm still wrapping my head around it. On one hand you have a man putting his life on the line to free another person. Very heroic! And I agree, Manning should be let go.

On the other hand.....The line between Wikileaks, Russia and Trump is growing ever so thin.

It appears that Wikileaks tweeted the same...could be true.

I wonder if Assange is willing to play ball against Russia now and get immunity himself after he's extradited.

He has a laundry list of sources that I'm sure America would be interested in.

Exactly, this isn't the first time he's said this. I like the guy but he knows he can say that and it not happen because its not even part of the circumstances.

Sweden doesn't give a # about Snowden, they are acting on the behest of the US.

Anyways....

Some fabricated rape charges wasn't it? Or something like that.

But more than one high ranking US official has said they would request extradition if they could get it from Ecuador, which they had said no anyway, so why bother with the warrant?

They damn well knew he wouldn't set foot in the US until some kind of agreement was made.

Sweden wants him for questioning on sexual impropriety. The US wants to drone strike him. Know your enemy.

oh FFS - why do you believe that the rape charges are " fabricated " ??

i wikll spell it out for you

the entire ecuador embassy farce is because assange is despersate to avoid being sent to sweden

assange claims that this is because the swedes will turn him over to the US

the UK is more likley than sweden to process a US extraditiion request

now the farcical part - assange " offeres " to turn himself over to ther US authrorities - which is the EXACT outcome he sought to avoid by precipitsating the embassy farce

assange turning himself overr to the US directly - avoids sweden altogether

ergo - assange is more afraid of sweden than america

- thus assange is talking bollox

He's just bored. And he knows the US will never give Manning clemency. Just grandstanding because he doesn't have anything better to do.

The charges Assange is facing in Sweden were invented by Sweden to have a legal means to detain him, so that the US could get him extradited.

Assange doesn't play games. He's got a perfect track record so far.

Therefor, I'm inclined to take him seriously.

They can't extradite him because he's technically in Ecuador. The UK didn't have anything to charge him with in order to extradite him.

I think he's ignoring the Swedish connection in all this because it's inconsequential. At least from the evidence I've seen, which isn't much, I don't see them being legitimate.

This is a conspiracy website after all.

You could be entirely correct. I just don't buy it.

a reply to: tothetenthpower

he was NOT under ecuadorian < sp ? > prrotection when he was trying every legal trick to avoid extradition to sweden

the UK authorities siezed his passport - so his ability to skip the country was limited

again i ask - why not DIRECT extradition UK >> USA ????

sweden = un-nessecary additional layer of complexity
