What a night, we have seen what was regarded by the MSM as a impossible situation and we have Trump as President.. It was called on social media and this site for what now feels like ages now. There is a lot of hurt within the USA due to copious failings and I feel the vote for Trump was a massive FU to the establishment, now if this momentum is going to continue what is the general consensus towards what the future holds for the whistle blowers that could be argued started the momentum towards opening up just how corrupted the US Government is.

Manning is in jail with a sentence of 35 years, this situation from what I can gather is very unpopular, Assange who although stating he is neutral was a massive help for Trump with the way the emails where released and who is currently in exile. You could very well say the same about Snowden. Will Trump favor a pardon for these people???..

I also feel that Brexit gave a boost to the average person (worldwide) in that it showed that just maybe a difference can be made and you do not have to put up with the current system that many see as broken.

Will this vote now give momentum for other countries within Europe to go their separate ways knowing full well that trade deals can still be had and that slowly the strangle hold of the elite is starting to fade quickly.

So many questions and avenues with what we have seen in 2016....

Can't be any worse than what Hillary was asking about. As she asked about droning Assange. In fact he should be lenient to the whistle blowers, who helped him win, in helping many voters to see the corruption.

French elections are next.

As far as pardons, the charge against Assange is from Sweden, iirc.

Snowden has a chance, as well as Manning. One was exiled the other in solitary custody with two suicide attempts.

Obama's the one who should pardon them, it was within his presidency.

As a group, they pose more of a threat to US from the outside, than as free persons.

I hope Trump has good advice on this stuff. I would look to what Gen.Flynn has said about their situation.

The American people owe Julian Assange a debt of ENORMOUS gratitude for Trump's victory, which had to have helped by alerting so many who weren't already looking like so many of us here already, of the massive levels of arrogant corruption happening in our government, and all those leaking information exposing atrocities and corruption should now be made free from any future reprisals, which if Hillary had won the election never would have.

Since the people exposing all the things they have exposed, also exposed her and our current administration, who hide behind the illegal use of the classification system to keep their corrupt activities hidden from the American people. They who are using government for their own enrichment at the detriment to the rest of us must be stopped.

I have to state for the record, that I am against the fascism that Trumps presidency will no doubt reveal itself to be.

However, if he truly wants to be anything other than the downfall of his own nation, then he ought to consider outright pardons for Assange, Manning, and a damned parade for Snowden, who ought by any reasonable definition be considered a hero by a freedom loving, liberty enjoying people.

I very much doubt that any of that will happen, because Mr Trump has stated that he is all in for blowing things up, continuing policies that have damaged Americas people, and its reputation globally for decades. These policies are made visibly weaker when people release the truth, despite the efforts of those who support these actions to keep the truth hidden. For this reason, it is unlikely that any of the people who have promoted actual truth and transparency in the last fifteen years, will receive any support from his office.
