The case against ASSANGE is Russian collision? That is hilarious ASSANGE's WIKILEAKS gave us the truth about Podesta, the Clintons and so much more. ASSANGE is a global TREASURE and a HERO. He is protected under the 1st Amendment

Accidental indictment? Assange is guilty of nothing. He has a right to publish and did what your news outlet and all others should have done, tell the truth.
S W:
Trump needs to pardon Assange

Why? What has he done?, except telling the truth. Get that evidence and arrest all Democrats.

Another reason why Canada should never merge with the U.S.A. The Yanks are going to destroy Assange. America is not a nation that I will ever live in.

Philip Northfield:
He did what a journalist should do published information to the public he didn’t steal or hack anything. When did the BBC and US corporate media become so lacking in impartiality? Those journalists that don’t get off their lazy smug spoiled arses and start supporting him and stop smearing him should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. If the have an ounce of integrity or journalistic ambition to serve the public and society at large then they should be screaming from the rooftops, because remember when he gone he is one less loud voice to defend them when those in power come for them.

April 4 2019—a date which will live in infamy— Jullian Assange was suddenly and deliberately kidnapped by the dark forces of the American Empire. Shame on the UK!.

Bring him to America safely. We LOVE HIM XOXOXOXOX
Still trying to cover up the fact that they killed Seth Rich for handing over the emails to wikileaks. At the same time, they are covering up the fact that Hillary was tied to the sale of 20% of our uranium. And also, the reason they keep going after Trump is to keep the Clintons out of the spotlight of their multiple felonies.

The real criminals are in power. The people(demos) have no power(cratos), we the people do not have democracy, we have divide-and-conquer theater left/right party politics in which the people are lied to by media propanganda and false flag operations, decisions made behind closed doors.

What we need is real Democracy, open transparent and participative. With a constitution by the people, direct vote on laws and referendums on all matters, transparent and revokable governance with random selection of citizen groups to oversee/whisleblow/etc.

This requires for people of various opinions to set asside polarizing non-critical disagreements and seek consensus on a transparent democratic framework.

And BTW, the very fact we need whistleblower protection and wikileaks is an aberation, governance by the people should not be secret from the people in the first place nor rely on non-democratic opaque hierarchic organisations, it certainly is not a by- the-people situation. The people who usurp power and foster oligarchic fake-democracies work behind closed doors and want people to be scared of a real democracy and foster division.
facing arrest for what ? exposing and letting the world know who was murdering innocent children and civilians , their the ones that should be behind bars , not this truth teller

Wow the desperation is clear as day, the muller delusion collusion is dead and this is all they have. Dead men tell no tails (WRONG) HRC must be quaking in her boots, if he dies she has to go to jail. Why is no one seeing what is going on here, anyone with a voice anyone who is standing up for what is right is being silenced. Don't believe it look at briton a whole nation being told No you will not get what the people want. You will get what we allow you to have.
I really wonder why Trump hasn't pardoned him.

10 years ago a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
Assange, Russian agent, will be dead within' 24 hours after release...Trumpite.

Julian is a victim and like Skripak and Snowden was being used by fake judges and fake lawyers, and selfish / ignorant politicians who were only using him to get fame! The world should stop cyber criminals, and have people like Julian Assange for avoiding a cyber nuclear World War III, which will be the last one for sure☢️🆘🚸⚠️🧠🧐🤔🗽🚒🚓🚐🚑🇳🇱🇷🇺🇪🇺🇺🇸🤝etc.💪👍👏😄😇🤡
