According to Glenn Greenwald, the report that those discussions did more than touch on the matter of handing Assange over to UK authorities “appears to be true”. This might trigger an indictment from US authorities and possible extradition proceedings, a point made acute by the promise of US Attorney-General Jeff Sessions back in April to “seek to put some people in jail”, with Assange’s “arrest” being a priority. “Can’t wait to see,” quipped Greenwald, “how many fake press freedom defenders support that.”

I don't want to accuse anyone of being a shill, but if there were one, it would look very similar to a few posters of left wing fame around here. Your other post was dead on, everyone knows who the blabbering partisan is.

I've never been silent on this issue.
Assange, Snowden, Binney, etc are American heroes/patriots. They exposed some of the most corrupt and insidious (not to mention insulated from review/accountability/need-determination) government programs and greatly tied/forced the government's hands. Anything that harms government's lies and false narratives or causes it to have less options (ie: not permitting them to default to secrecy) is good
I've never stopped supporting Assange. Nor will I. I've always opposed the administration's back-peddling in RE: to the above.
As long as Trump doesn't try to extradite him, he should be free to go. If he's held by any other nation, and if the US Marines aren't sent in to kill them/free him then I may have to reconsider my vote.
But as long as the United States doesn't attempt extradition (the reasons are invented/patently false) and as long as we don't tolerate any other country attempting the same then I have no complaints. Of course I'd still never vote for Democrats, but going third party/libertarian? Very real possibility. Unless our country does the right thing and takes any action necessary to secure Assange.
........I guess on the bright side, if Assange goes down, there is a massive insurance file out there waiting for keys to unlock it.
