Don't you have to be found guilty of a crime in a court of law , before you can be granted a pardon ?

Will Trump Pardon Julian Assange?
President to side with his base or the deep state?
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com - April 11, 2019

According to his lawyer, Julian Assange was arrested on a US extradition request, diminishing the chances that he will receive a presidential pardon.

But why is the Trump administration seeking to prosecute the Wikileaks founder?

Assange exposed war crimes committed at the behest of neo-con warmongers.

It was the war crimes that harmed America’s reputation, not Wikileaks.


This is perfectly in line with the non-interventionist, America first platform Trump ran on.

In 2016, Trump literally said, “I love Wikileaks,” so why does Julian Assange now face the possibility of disappearing into a black hole, never to be heard from again?

Will Trump Pardon Julian Assange?
Cryptic tweets suggest Assange extradition to Switzerland
Jerome Corsi | Infowars.com - January 2, 2018

https://www.infowars.com/will-trump-pardon-julian-assange/

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Is Julian Assange about to be set free?

A QAnon post on the Internet bulletin board 8chan on Christmas Day and a series of messages posted on Twitter by Julian Assange on New Year’s Day appear to deliver a coordinated message that an extradition for Assange from his sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London is imminent.

While interpreting posts intended to be cryptic is not a science, those following QAnon understand he has predicted several important developments in code, in an effort to mobilize internet-aware Trump loyalists.

Ultimately, the question QAnon is raising is this: Will President Trump pardon Julian Assange?

While CIA Director Mike Pompeo and Attorney General Sessions have argued that arresting Julian Assange is a priority, it is not clear that Assange has violated national security laws. Even if it can be shown he published classified U.S. national security documents.

Technically, Assange has not yet been indicted for any criminal offense in the United States, nor is it clear he has committed any crime.  Under the Supreme Court Decisions New York Times v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964), and in the Pentagon Papers case, New York Times v. U.S. 403 U.S. 713 (1971), a journalist is allowed to accept and publish classified documents provided by other sources.

Mysteriously vanished Dutch WikiLeaks partner ‘likely’ lost in kayaking accident – Norway police
http://www.rt.com/news/467163-wikileaks-associate-kayaking-accident/





'A WikiLeaks associate, who mysteriously vanished last year while on a visit to Norway, was probably the victim of a kayaking accident, Norwegian police say. The man’s body remains missing, however, leaving a mystery unsolved.

In a statement on Friday, police said they believe Arjen Kamphuis – a missing cybersecurity expert and WikiLeaks affiliate who was last seen in the Norweigan town of Bodo in the summer of 2018 – was likely “lost at sea” after a kayaking trip went awry.

“The police have concluded that Mr Kamphuis most likely suffered an accident on the evening of August 20, 2018, while kayaking in … northern Norway, and was subsequently lost at sea,” the police statement said.

Kamphuis’s disappearance has generated conspiracy theories, particularly due to his connection to WikiLeaks and suspicions were stoked further last year when a phone belonging to Kamphuis was briefly activated in a location nearly 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) from Bodo.

However, in their Friday statement, police said the phone was picked up by a pair of truck drivers who stopped to fish near the spot Kamphuis’s kayak and other belongings were discovered, and that they “have no reason to believe that the truck drivers were involved in the disappearance of Mr Kamphuis in any other way.”

WikiLeaks referred to the cyber engineer’s disappearance as “strange” back then, but has yet to comment on the latest police statement.'

In the "rebuilding Russia" brochure, written in 1990, when the USSR was still in existence, I said that private ownership of the land was essential. It's obvious why. For self-interest. One is interested in his job when he has his own stake in it.
Now the situation regarding private land ownership is so complicated that a few pages of text would be required for my answer. You can't even imagine what's going on there! What is coming up is simply a sell-out ... into nothingness. Nothing will remain of Russia. Not even the land. Nothing ! There will be no farmers - just a wage earner. And a cheater who will own the land ...

Generally speaking, respecting the adoption of foreign models, each country has its own tradition, which cannot be ignore "

Edward Snowden - versus - Julian Assange

Edward Snowden’s Julian Assange is an Unfamiliar Julian Assange






'NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks’ former editor Julian Assange have a complicated relationship. On the one hand, they share important similarities: both are perceived as dangerous enemies by the United States government, and both have been <a href="https://www.truthdig.com/articles/from-edward-snowden-to-julian-assange-filmmaker-laura-poitras-takes-on-another-renegade-in-risk/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">documentary subjects[/url] of filmmaker Laura Poitras. On the other hand, they clearly disagree when it comes to the means of achieving government transparency and accountability. After all, if Snowden had agreed with Assange about publishing practices, it is likely that he would have followed Chelsea Manning’s example and sent the NSA documents he collected and disclosed in 2013 to WikiLeaks.

The recent publication of Permanent Record, Snowden’s 336-page memoir, takes the Snowden-Assange dynamic to new—and problematic—heights. When Assange was forcibly dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in early 2019, Snowden was among <a href="https://www.truthdig.com/articles/edward-snowden-leads-chorus-condemning-assanges-arrest/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">the leading voices condemning the arrest[/url] of the WikiLeaks founder, calling it a dangerous assault on journalism. But in his memoir, Snowden uses rhetorical tricks to present Assange and WikiLeaks as his deceitful and irresponsible foils in a blatant and seemingly self-serving effort to highlight his own trustworthiness and accountability. Indeed, reviewers at the Washington Post and New Yorkerhave <a href="https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/edward-snowden-explains-how-he-pulled-off-one-of-the-largest-leaks-in-us-history/2019/09/13/eb64e4a0-d62c-11e9-9343-40db57cf6abd_story.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">already[/url] <a href="https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/09/23/edward-snowden-and-the-rise-of-whistle-blower-culture" target="_blank" rel="noopener">seized[/url] upon Snowden’s anti-Assange rhetoric to serve their own anti-Assange agendas.

Proponents of press freedom have become accustomed to Pentagon and national security state attacks on Assange, but Snowden’s puzzling claims about the white-haired Australian and his transparency organization are exceptionally dangerous because they come from an otherwise highly respectable and trustworthy source, and at a time when there is otherwise a virtual media blackout on WikiLeaks. To be sure, Snowden deserves recognition as a courageous whistleblower and as a global champion of privacy rights, but in Permanent Record, Snowden appears willing to use a political prisoner for personal gain, deliberately distorting the truth and perpetuating the imperialistic propaganda that threatens not only Assange’s health but also his very life—just like the corporate media and national security state he exposed in 2013.'

Assange subjected to torture & violations of due process rights – UN envoy






Two medical experts accompanied Melzer when he visited Assange at Belmarsh prison in the UK, he said on Tuesday.

Quote
We came to the conclusion that he had been exposed to psychological torture for a prolonged period of time. That's a medical assessment.


Melzer’s message fell largely on deaf ears, as only a handful of reporters attended Tuesday’s press conference at the UN headquarters in New York.'

‘I can’t think properly’: Assange disoriented as court rejects delay for extradition proceedings






Cleanly shaven and dressed in a navy suit, Assange appeared before Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday to seek the postponement of an extradition hearing scheduled for February.

His lawyer argued that the US government had attempted to kidnap and cause harm to his client, and that he would need more time to compile evidence for the case.

Although Assange raised his fist to supporters in the public gallery, the imprisoned journalist did not appear to be in good form. The WikiLeaks founder reportedly struggled to say his own name and date of birth, and held back tears as he told the court that he couldn’t “think properly.”

Deep State Is Assassinating Julian Assange

The Deep State Is Assassinating Julian Assange






'WikiLeaks founder and journalist Julian Assange appeared in court to fight his extradition to the United States, sluggishly reciting his name and date of birth in a zombie-like state — displaying signs of either sleep deprivation, torture or poisoning — but quickly recovered to state the rigged case against him to the judge when he was asked if he understood what he was facing.

Assange responded, appearing to fight back tears at his case management hearing, “I can’t think properly, I don’t understand how this is equitable. This superpower had 10 years to prepare for this case and I can’t access my writings. It’s very difficult where I am to do anything but these people have unlimited resources.” The WikiLeaks Founder added, “They are saying journalists and whistleblowers are enemies of the people. They have unfair advantages dealing with documents. They know the interior of my life with my psychologist. They steal my children’s DNA. This is not equitable what is happening here?”

Assange was also denied a 90-day extension to prepare his defense as governments rig yet another case against the WikiLeaks journalist, proving the death of real justice and right to a fair trial in the UK is corroborated with the death of journalism and ethics. In other words, the cards are stacked against Assange; the state has committed numerous illegal moves, yet the man’s defense can’t do anything because the state isn’t playing by the rules by showing a total bias, court action after court action.

Westminster Magistrates’ Court district judge Vanessa Baraitser further highlighted that rigging by adhering to the behest of government prosecutor James Lewis QC who was firmly against the judge giving Assange any extra time to prepare his case, as The Guardian reported.

As The Canary reports:

Quote
Clearly, the full weight of the British and US state apparatus is bearing down on the WikiLeaks founder in this extradition case. That was made explicitly clear in a statement by Nils Melzer, the UN special rapporteur on torture, in May. He <a href="https://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=24665&LangID=E" rel="noopener noreferrer external" data-wpel-link="external">urged[/url] the UK not to extradite Assange to the US, saying:

In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political persecution I have never seen a group of democratic States ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law.


Assange’s legal team also accused the U.S. of attempting to “kidnap and harm” the WikiLeaks founder and used that as reasoning for delaying the trial, Sky News reported.

Mark Summers, one of Assange’s lawyers, described the extradition bid as “a political attempt” by Donald Trump’s administration to “signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information.”

“It is legally unprecedented,” he told the court.

Summers further claimed the U.S. had “intruded” on conversations between Assange and his lawyers while he was in the Ecuadorian embassy, and the intrusions included “hooded men breaking into offices.”

Sweden drops Assange rape investigation – prosecution authority






It was determined that the evidence was simply not strong enough to file an indictment, and that interviewing Julian Assange regarding the case would not change this assessment.

The Swedish Prosecution Authority made the announcement during a press conference in Stockholm on Tuesday.

Assange is currently being held in a UK prison and is in the middle of a court battle to avoid extradition to the United States. Swedish authorities reopened the rape investigation following his arrest at the Ecuadorian Embassy last April.

The Prosecution Authority said that its decision could be appealed. Announcing the decision, Deputy Chief Prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson told members of the press that “time” had played a significant role in discontinuing the sexual assault probe.

The Australian journalist has repeatedly denied the allegation against him, which were first made in 2010.'

The Swedish government has realized that Assange will be condemned by the Empire, so if anyone asks them why you have accused him? The Swedes will "wash their hands" - "so we withdrew the charge against Assange. We are good."

‘I’m slowly dying here’: ‘Sedated’ Assange tells friend during Christmas Eve call from UK prison as health concerns mount
31 Dec, 2019 00:37 / Updated 19 hours ago

Julian Assange sounded like a shell of the man he once was during a Christmas Eve phone call, British journalist Vaughan Smith told RT, noting the WikiLeaks founder had trouble speaking and appeared to be drugged.

Assange was allowed to make just a single call from the maximum security Belmarsh prison in southeast London for the Christmas holiday, hoping for a reminder of the world beyond his drab confines of steel and concrete.

“I think he simply wanted a few minutes of escape” and to revive “happy memories,” Smith told RT, adding that Assange had spent the holiday at his home in 2010. The brief conversation was far from cheerful, however, with Assange’s deteriorating condition increasingly apparent throughout the call.

<p id="1aea" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">So what caused this shift in Assange’s treatment? Did the powerful empire-like alliance loosely centralized around the United States suddenly come to its senses and realize that torturing journalists for telling the truth is the sort of tyrannical abuse that it accuses other governments of perpetrating? Did officials in the British government bow to public pressure from the pro-Assange demonstrations which have been taking place in London month after month and have some faint flickerings of conscience? Did Belmarsh Prison authorities come to their senses after <a class="ax cj hy hz ia ib" href="https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/12/16/100-doctors-demand-julian-assange-receive-safe-passage-australian-hospital-it-too" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">more than a hundred doctors warned[/url] that their cruelty was killing the award-winning publisher?</p>
<p id="9631" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">Why no. As it turns out, Assange was in fact rescued from the cruelty of this globe-sprawling empire by the concerted protests of high-security prison inmates.</p>
<p id="bc9b" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">“In a dramatic climbdown, authorities at Belmarsh Prison have moved Julian Assange from solitary confinement in the medical wing and relocated him to an area with other inmates,” <a class="ax cj hy hz ia ib" href="https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/01/julian-assange-moved-out-of-solitary-confinement-after-fellow-prisoners-revolt-against-his-mistreatment/" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">said[/url] WikiLeaks Ambassador Joseph Farrell in a statement today. “The move is a huge victory for Assange’s legal team and for campaigners who have been insisting for weeks that the prison authorities must end the punitive treatment of Assange.”</p>
<p id="b835" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">“But the decision to relocate Assange is also a massive victory of prisoners in Belmarsh,” Farrell added. “A group of inmates have petitioned the prison governor on three occasions, insisting that the treatment of Assange was unjust and unfair. After meetings between prisoners, lawyers and the Belmarsh authorities, Assange was moved to a different prison wing — albeit one with only 40 inmates.”</p>
<p id="f389" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">Belmarsh is a <a class="ax cj hy hz ia ib" href="https://consortiumnews.com/2019/04/15/julian-assanges-nightmarish-future/" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">notoriously harsh maximum-security prison[/url] full of violent offenders and prisoners convicted under anti-terrorism laws, one of many reasons that Assange supporters have so vigorously opposed his confinement there. What does it tell you about the society you are living in that this population has a superior moral compass to the people who are actually running things?</p>
<p id="7344" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">For years I’ve been arguing with Democratic Party-aligned liberals on one side saying that Assange is a Russian agent who deserves to be tortured, and a bunch of Trump-aligned right wingers on the other side saying their president is extraditing Assange for the good of the world. These are the two mainstream views on Assange within the western empire today. And a group of Belmarsh prisoners just proved themselves infinitely more ethical than any of them. They have a better sense of right and wrong than those running the empire, and they have a better sense of right and wrong than the propagandized apologists for that empire.</p>
<p id="602f" class="hk hl db bo hm b hn ly hp lz ma mb mc md me mf hx fw" data-selectable-paragraph="">Not that this should surprise us; the US-centralized empire is spectacularly evil, and this this group of Belmarsh prisoners had a unique vantage point on Assange’s plight. The prisoners demonstrated their moral superiority to the mainstream public not because prison inmates are on average inherently better people than those on the outside, but because they were confronted with the reality of Assange’s situation instead of mainlining mass media propaganda about Assange.

‘Doctors for Assange’ worry he may die in UK prison having ‘effectively been tortured to death’






WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may die in a UK prison, having "effectively been tortured to death," claim Doctors for Assange, a group of 117 doctors from 18 countries, in a recent letter <a href="https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30383-4/fulltext" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">published[/url] in The Lancet, a leading medical journal.

The letter says that Assange requires urgent medical care, and has been exposed to “prolonged psychological torture”. The group once again asks for him to be moved to a university teaching hospital for medical assessment and treatment.

WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson on the other hand has claimed that Assange’s health is improving and he is no longer being held in solitary confinement. Hrafnsson spoke to journalists ahead of next week’s court hearing on the US extradition request.

Assange’s health has been worrying his supporters for a while now.

Nils Melzer, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, visited Assange in prison in May 2019, and <a href="https://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=25249" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">reported[/url] that the journalist showed “all the symptoms typical of prolonged exposure to psychological torture”.

By that point, Assange <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/apr/11/how-ecuador-lost-patience-with-houseguest-julian-assange" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">had spent[/url] seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London living in a converted office under constant surveillance, before being detained in Belmarsh maximum security prison. Soon after Melzer’s visit, the public saw Assange at his case management hearing on October 21, 2019. “Doctors for Assange” says that he appeared “pale, underweight, aged, and limping, and he had visibly struggled to recall basic information, focus on his thoughts, or articulate his words”. By the end of the proceedings, the journalist <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/nov/25/julian-assanges-health-is-so-bad-he-could-die-in-prison-say-60-doctors" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">told[/url] the judge “he had not understood what had happened in court”.

Musicians, politicians lead London rally for Julian Assange
February 22, 2020

LONDON — Celebrities, musicians and politicians led thousands of supporters of imprisoned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in a march in central London on Saturday to oppose his extradition to the United States.

Assange’s father, John Shipton, and couturier Vivian Westwood spoke at the event, and singer Chrissie Hynde and Pink Floyd musician Roger Waters performed. Other high-profile attendees included former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, producer Brian Eno and rapper MIA.

The march culminated close to the Houses of Parliament.

...

Tim Dawson of the National Union of Journalists said it was “troubling” that Assange’s case had not raised more concern from the British media and warned that a successful deportation could have profound implications for media freedom.

The U.S. Justice Department said it charged Assange with conspiring with former U.S. military intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to leak a trove of classified material in 2010.

Assange’s Extradition Hearing Begins: Truth-Telling Journalism on Trial






Imprisoned in London at the behest of the Trump regime,<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

Assange’s extradition hearing is all about wanting truth-telling journalism the way it should be silenced.

What’s going on affects all truth-telling journalists. We’re all Julian Assange on trial. His fate is ours. Who’s next on the US/UK hit list to silence?<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

In an Orwellian age, speech, media and academic freedoms are threatened on the phony pretext of protecting national security — at a time when alleged threats are invented, not real.

Censorship in the West already is the new normal. Extraditing Assange to the US for kangaroo court proceedings to convict is all about criminalizing journalism its ruling regime finds objectionable — the hallmark of totalitarian rule.

WikiLeaks presented an overview of USA v. Julian Assange at his extradition hearing.

Part 1 is scheduled from Feb. 24 – 28, Part 2 from May 18 – June 5.

Proceedings are at Woolwich Crown Court/Belmarsh Magistrate’s Court — adjacent to the high-security Belmarsh prison where Assange is held.

Attorneys representing him include Gareth Peirce, Edward Fitzgerald, and Mark Summers. Magistrate Vanessa Baraitser is presiding.

The Trump regime wants Assange extradited to the US, tried, convicted, and imprisoned for exposing Bush/Cheney state terrorism, specifically the following:

Collateral Murder video and Iraq Rules of Engagement, authorizing the murder of all military-aged Iraqis, the Afghan War Diaries, the Iraq War Logs, Cablegate (referring to State Department cables), and the Guantanamo Files.

Assange faces a spurious 18-count indictment under the long ago outdated 1917 Espionage Act, relating to WW I, what should have been rescinded at war’s end.

After he was brutally dragged from Ecuador’s London embassy last April and imprisoned, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) called what happened to him “an attack on press freedom,” a flagrant First Amendment breach, leaving all independent journalists vulnerable to similar actions against them.

At the time, ACLU speech, privacy, and technology project director Ben Wizner said the following:

“For the first time in the history of our country, the government has brought criminal charges against a publisher for the publication of truthful information,” adding:<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“This is an extraordinary escalation of the Trump (regime’s) attacks on journalism, and a direct assault on the First Amendment.”

“It establishes a dangerous precedent that can be used to target all news organizations that hold the government accountable by publishing its secrets.”

Each charge against Assange carries a potential 10-year sentence.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

Trump regime hardliners want him either imprisoned longterm or eliminated by slow torture before arrival.

WikiLeaks called his indictment “madness”…representing “the end of national security journalism and the first amendment.”<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

USA v. Assange is the first time that the Espionage Act is being used to indict a publisher and journalist for doing his job — in his case, applying the law extraterritorially.

If extradited to the US, he’ll be held under harsh Special Administrative Measures (SAMs) in solitary confinement with no outside contacts other than his lawyers who’ll be prohibited from transmitting messages from him to others.

There’s virtually no possibility that he’ll be afforded due process and judicial fairness in US kangaroo court proceedings, considered guilty by accusation pre-trial.

If convicted, other truth-telling investigative journalists will be at risk — unprotected by First Amendment rights without which all others are threatened.

Former UK ambassador, historian, and human rights activist Craig Murray explained that proceedings against Assange will “impose the power of state” to assure the planned outcome.

“Woolwich is a ‘counter-terrorism court’ to limit public access and to impose the fear of the power of the state,” said Murray, adding:

Denied permission to sit beside his legal team, “Assange is confined at the back of the court…in a massive bulletproof glass box…designed to restrain extremely physically violent terrorists.”

Magistrate Baraitser is a Boris Johnson regime “puppet,” proceedings against Assange “corrupt(ed).”

Murray witnessed Monday’s proceedings inside a modern version of a centuries earlier UK Star Chamber, convened to convict, not acquit, saying:

“I followed the arguments very clearly every minute of the day, and not a single one of the most important facts and arguments today has been reported anywhere in the mainstream media,” adding:

“The mere act of being an honest witness is suddenly extremely important, when the entire media has abandoned that role.”

What happened on Monday and will continue ahead “is a political show trial…Baraitser is complicit” in proceedings no legitimate tribunal would tolerate.

She made “zero pretense of being anything other than in thrall to the Crown, and by extension to the” Trump regime.

If Assange survives his ordeal in Britain, which is very much in doubt, extradition to the US is virtually certain unless the ruling against him in London is overturned on appeal to the European Court of Human Rights or European Court of Justice, the highest EU court.

The alternative is imprisonment and torture in the US similar to what Chelsea Manning endured for nearly seven years.

More of the same continues now, imprisoned indefinitely in the US for invoking her constitutional right to remain silent.

Refusing to be part of unconstitutional proceedings against Assange, she declined to give testimony that could be used against him.

At great personal cost, she made clear that her honor, principles, and soul aren’t for sale.

The US has a history of honoring its worst and punishing its best, Manning clearly in the latter category.

So is Assange for truth-telling journalism the way it’s supposed to be — what establishment media long ago abandoned.

Note: UK law prohibits extradition of individuals to other countries for political reasons.

That’s clearly what Trump regime charges are all about, along with wanting truth-telling journalism on sensitive issues silenced.
