Great news! Julian Assange is free at last!

This is something to celebrate!

Heroic journalist/publisher Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, has done such courageous and magnificent work exposing criminality, including that of the Hildebeast—one of the “crimes” he was ostensibly forced to pay for, along with exposing our military’s heinous doings in Iraq and Afghanistan—that he should have received multiple Pulitzer Prizes by now.

Instead, he spent 7 years in a cramped room in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden on a bogus rape charge that was later dropped. Then a change in the Ecuadorian government led to revocation of his asylum status, after which he was promptly arrested by the Brits, resulting in 5 years in London’s high security Belmarsh Prison.

In other words, he’s been more or less imprisoned for 12 years, from age 41 to 53. As the saying goes: No good deed goes unpunished.

Looks like Julian was safer in prison than in the Embassy, since we now know that Hillary once said, “Can’t we just drone this guy?” Considering the Clinton Body Count’s very long list, it’s doubtful Madame Hillary DeFarge meant it as a “joke”—especially as Killary blamed Assange for costing her the 2016 election.

And she was not alone. According to Tucker Carlson, Mike Pompeo, Trump’s CIA Director at the time, contemplated having Assange assassinated! Yahoo News reported:

The CIA’s fury at WikiLeaks led Pompeo to publicly describe the group in 2017 as a “non-state hostile intelligence service.” More than just a provocative talking point, the designation opened the door for agency operatives to take far more aggressive actions…

Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed and Pompeo never acted on his vengeful plot against Assange for leaking the CIA’s infamous Vault 7.

In the end, Julian did have to agree to plead guilty to a single felony charge—otherwise the DOJ would have lost face. But the court considered he’s already served his 5-year sentence and is now a free man.

Of course he should never have been arrested let alone imprisoned for five long years for engaging in investigative journalism, but all’s well that ends well, as they say.
