I think it's an EU thing although I can't say for sure about pre-existing ones. It is just something that crossed my mind when Brexit became a reality.

I see nothing wrong in this move at all.... He asked for unconditional pardon of Manning and only commutation was given. NOT AT ALL THE SAME THING.

I am so pleased that Assange chose to stay put!! Don't let those #ers try to trick you around. Keep up the good work.

My question (replying to another poster) was about extradition between Britain and Sweden.
However, I strongly suspect that this is another individual treaty, like the ones you mention.

The US has individual treaties with countries.

List of extradition treaties of the USA


The US hasn't asked for Assange's extradition from anywhere.

I edited it to add about the UK. I think the Brexit wont affect the treaty though, I'm not sure.

I would prefer to see Chelsea as a free person, 100% free - of legal recourse. I would consider that clemency.

I'm disgusted by her treatment thus far whilst incarcerated. Its simply unacceptable and a gross depvitation of Liberty.

Once that is forthcoming and its past this coming Monday morning, I would think that options are on the table for Assange.

Assange was just "testing the waters" to see how Trump would respond - and give him an idea of whether he's going to stay in that Embassy or whether Trump will categorically say that he will not pursue any charges should Assange leave.

It is part two of the EU extradition act that might be relevant. As it stands, if we leave the EU our government will no doubt keep that controversial (part 2) agreement with the US that says we must extradite to any country that the US has a treaty with. So it would still be binding.

He shouldn't. Trump needs to pardon him. Then he doesnt have to fear extradition. He is instrumental to the truth coming out and the movement to get rid of the neocons. He needs to be pardoned.

Trump can't pardon him as he hasn't been found guilty of anything yet. The US has made no moves regards Assange but I think that the silence might be ominous.

There is no extradition order for Assange from the USA.
America has no charges pending for Assange.

I never thought he meant it. They called his bluff and now they can use this to discredit him and the work wikileaks does


He discredited himself and his organization when he got in bed with Putin.

twitter.com...

Perhaps that question will be brought up...

It won't matter if he comes. Remember these people not even accept election results.

That's why he should wait.

Correct me if im wrong, but i do believe the charges in Sweden have been dropped. Anyone? No time to look it up now, but i will check in later.
I believe that was his claim during a recent interview

For what it's worth, my advice would be to keep your powder dry on this topic until more facts become known.

There's an awful lot of speculation & innuendo flying around right now. I'm going to wait until the dust clears a little before deciding anything related to this topic.

Good post though - and one worth sharing with us.

Thanks.

That was my understanding as well. That he met with some people of the case.

Really if he wants to get out of his case all he has to do is claim he was a muslim when he was in sweden.
isn't the charge something like not wearing a condom when he agreed to.

i dont know how the fook you came to that leap of " logic " - but hey thats your problem - not mine

i would not make a deal with assange - because i dont trust him - simples

just FYI i would be even less inclined to make a deal with obama , or any of the clintons

although - if it involved chelsea and various acts of concesual depravity - then i might relent
[ but i digrees ]

I dont even think a personal choice thing to wear a condom, but some kind of state law. Which sounds ridiculous, yet i think thats the way it goes if you are not married or something. Im not positive about this tho. Also the women didnt want to press charges but instead were forced by the state. Total witch hunt.
