Assange to Ask President Elect Trump for Pardon After ‘Helping’ During Election
For his assistance in the election outcome, Julian Assange is expected to ask president elect Donald Trump to drop the US criminal investigation into him as a way of dodging the jail time he would receive.
Jennifer Robinson, attorney for Assange, told the media that it is their hope Trump would reverse President Obama’s stance on classified information and materials. Robinson claims that the investigation into her client should be closed “on the grounds it violates the first amendment and places a chill on freedom of speech and reporting.”
However Assange’s request shows his gross misunderstanding of the legal process in America. There are elected officials and separation of powers that prohibits a president from being able to simply halt a criminal investigation into Assange.
Matt Bennett, political strategist, commented: “It’s a little like asking Nixon to pardon the Watergate burglars. Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have revealed some of the most important secrets the U.S. government has got, so this would be a travesty of justice if he were to somehow pardon Assange. Democrats would go ballistic — and they should.”
Assange was integral to the election win of Trump through documents provided to him by the Russian government. In fact, Moscow directly provided information and was “directly responsible for the leaks that cast a negative shadow over democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
For Russia, Assange’s assistance with public perception paid off and the candidate best suited for Vladimir Putin’s future aspirations won the US election.
For Putin continued occupation in former USSR territories is paramount and advancing on rebels fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria must continue unabated. With Trump leading America, the Russian president’s goals are much easier to reach.
For the duration of Russia’s involvement in Syria, all Russian air strikes have targeted anti-Assad forces and not the infamous ISIS. Both Aleppo and Idib are cities Assad has been trying to gain control over against those who oppose him.
As for Assange, thanks to his help getting the emails Russia hacked out to the public, Trump will enjoy the benefits of being a US president. And in exchange, Assange is also hoping, not only for a pardon, but for assistance in getting out of charges of rape and molestation.
Since 2010, Assange has been hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy, evading allegations of sexual deviancy and assault while maintaining his innocence.
