The other order, The United States of America (Extradition) (Amendment) Order 1987
Finally, British District Judge Nicholas Evans has announced that Mr. McKinnon—[snip]“will not be extradited to the US if guarantees about his safety cannot be made.” Addressing the prosecution, Judge Evans said “All you have to do is satisfy the court he is not at risk, … [a]nd if you cannot, then there is a problem.” The “risk” involved is the potential for Mr. McKinnon to be sent to Guantanamo Bay.

The Loyalists and Tories were the ones that maintained ties to the Crowne, before, during, and after the revolution, not the Federalists. Which Federalists can you tie to the Tories???
You refering to the United Loyalists of the Empire, m'dear?
...his Britannic Majesty and the United States of America, in order to carry into full effect the Provisional Articles above mentioned, according to the tenor thereof, have constituted and appointed, that is to say his Britannic Majesty on his part, David Hartley, Esqr., member of the Parliament of Great Britain, and the said United States on their part, John Adams, Esqr., late a commissioner of the United States of America at the court of Versailles, late delegate in Congress from the state of Massachusetts, and chief justice of the said state, and minister plenipotentiary of the said United States to their high mightinesses the States General of the United Netherlands; Benjamin Franklin, Esqr., late delegate in Congress from the state of Pennsylvania, president of the convention of the said state, and minister plenipotentiary from the United States of America at the court of Versailles; John Jay, Esqr., late president of Congress and chief justice of the state of New York, and minister plenipotentiary from the said United States at the court of Madrid; to be plenipotentiaries for the concluding and signing the present definitive treaty; who after having reciprocally communicated their respective full powers have agreed upon and confirmed the following articles.-- Treaty of Paris (1783)
"Esquires by virtue of their offices; as justices of the peace, and others who bear any office of trust under the crown....for whosoever studieth the laws of the realm, who studieth in the universities, who professeth the liberal sciences, and who can live idly, and without manual labor, and will bear the port, charge, and countenance of a gentleman, he shall be called master, and shall be taken for a gentleman." Blackstone Commentaries p.561-562.
“The Constitution is swollen with dangerous doctrine; doctrine that will be taken advantage of by the Federalists, a faction of monarchy men, military men, aristocrats and drones whose noise, impudence and zeal exceeds all belief."Richard Henry Lee, letter to George Mason, 1 October 1787
The Constitution was the formative document for a new Crown colony, placed in the united States on a piece of ground ceded by Virginia. This gives the United States the same status under International Law as Canada. This was done by men who had no desire to see the "colonies" separate from Britain. Men who deeply felt the need for a "king".-- David Gould

The United States is a Republic. The US constutition was based on the British Bill of rights and the Magna Carta 1216. But so are most of the constutitions in the World.
