His entire cabinet is made up of the neocon hacks who wanted to kill Assange way back when. John Bolton is his fucking National Security Adviser. The Chief Spook, Mike Pompeo, is Secretary of State. Trump has literally nothing to gain by pardoning Assange and a whole lot to lose in terms of fueling the Russian Conspiracy meme. There's a reason when Assange got arrested he suddenly switched to "I don't know anything about WikiLeaks. It's not my thing". when in October 2016 he kept repeating WIkiLeaks like a tic.
Those neocon hacks aren't puppeteering him, however. If they don't like the idea of a pardon, he'll invite them to walk or fire them himself.

"whole lot to lose"

Like what? No one cares about the Russia conspiracy. The media and the FBI keep a vain hope alive because they would lose a major talking point if they didn't. The electoral college in particular did not care during the 2016 election about these unproven allegations.

Trump's embarrassing love of both Israel and Saudi Arabia and his desperation to point to low fuel prices as a reason to ignore the Saudis literally murdering a journalist in their embassy suggests otherwise. Please tell me more about how the man who spent most of 2017 ranting on twitter about leakers, anonymous sources, and shitty journalism is totally going to pardon the most infamous leak publisher on the planet.

People forget, or don't know because they have never visited the site, that Wikileaks published anything and everything. That old hacker ethos of "information wants to be free" is the foundation of the whole thing. Obviously there are things that get massive attention in the media that people then associate with Wikileaks, like Collateral Murder and the Dem e-mail leaks, but there's tons of shit there if you dig around the site, even the most minor of things sent to them gets published(unless they've changed that).

That's why it was foolish for people to think that Assange/WL was on "their" side with the Collateral Murder and cable stuff, then felt shocked and betrayed when they put out the Podesta e-mails. Now other people feel that he's on "their" side but that can/will change because there are no sides to them.

I'm not a fan of Assange, as previous posts have shown and that stretches way back before 2010, but what I wrote above is the truth. He/WL actually have integrity. Did they choose not to publish damning Republican information and help Trump get elected? Fuck if I know, but it's not their thing to act that way, @GethN7 is pretty much spot-on about the make up of the organization and if they had the chance to burn both parties to the ground I think they would have jumped on that.
Agreed. Wikileaks has embarrassed both sides of an argument before, just because they've leaked crap more damaging to one side as opposed to the other at times doesn't means the polarity of their loyalties shifted, they just had more dirt from one side at the time.

It's the same misconception we get from certain circles. We shit on TERFs and troons equally, we are loyal to neither, but if we focus on one because they make the most cowish nonsense at the time, some of their opposition white knight our asses till they discover we mock them too.

A British judge sentenced WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Wednesday to 50 weeks in prison for skipping bail seven years ago and holing up in the Ecuadorian embassy.

Judge Deborah Taylor said it was hard to imagine a more serious version of the offence as she gave the 47-year-old hacker a sentence close to the maximum of a year in custody.

She said Assange’s seven years in the embassy had cost British taxpayers 16 million pounds ($21 million), and said he sought asylum as a “deliberate attempt to delay justice.”

Assange stood impassively with his hands clasped while the sentence was read. His supporters in the public gallery at Southwark Crown Court cheered for him as he left and chanted “Shame on you” at the judge as Assange was led away.

With his white hair freshly coiffed and wearing a black sports jacket and grey sweater, Assange looked much more youthful and healthier than when he was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy by British police on April 11th.

At the time, sporting an unkempt beard and long hair, he seemed wild-eyed and angry. This time he was composed and for the most part polite, although he did interrupt the judge to challenge her on her characterisation of the sexual misconduct allegations he faced in Sweden.

His lawyer read out a brief letter from Assange to the judge in which he apologised “unreservedly” to anyone who felt his actions had been disrespectful.

“I found myself struggling with terrifying circumstances for which neither I nor those from whom I sought advice could work out any remedy,” he said in the letter. “I did what I thought at the time was the best and perhaps the only thing that could be done.”

The Australian secret-spiller sought asylum in the South American country’s London embassy in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he was wanted for questioning over rape and sexual assault allegations made by two women.

Sweden suspended its investigation into possible sexual misconduct against Assange two years ago because he was beyond their reach while he was living in the embassy. Prosecutors have said that investigation could be revived if his situation changed.

Assange’s lawyer Mark Summers told a courtroom packed with journalists and WikiLeaks supporters that his client sought refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy because “he was living with overwhelming fear of being rendered to the U.S.” because of his WikiLeaks activities.

He said Assange had a “well-founded” fear that he would be mistreated and possibly sent to the U.S. detention camp for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay.

Assange was arrested by British police April 11 after Ecuador revoked his political asylum, accusing him of everything from meddling in the nation’s foreign affairs to poor hygiene.

He faces a separate court hearing Thursday on a U.S. extradition request. American authorities have charged Assange with conspiring to break into a Pentagon computer system.

It's funny to see the media jockeying to post the worst possible photo of him. This one by Sky News seems to have raised a trio of skin tags that are nearly invisibile in every other photo of him:

These useless cunts are certainly eager for revenge against a guy for doing their own job better than they did for years. String 'em all up.

Only 50 weeks in prison, or just under a year?

I expect Julian to be (relatively) fine.

The whole "why didn't they wikileak the Trump then??" argument is so stupid. No one has to go to an anonymous mailer to leak info about Trump. People hold press conferences to openly offer up confidential or classified information on Trump, or they sell it for huge sums.

Apparently, John Oliver has come out in defense of Assange.

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/john-oliver-defends-assange-this-story-is-worrying-for-a-number-of-reasons/

This whole story only gets stranger.
Not really, he hopes Assange has some dirt on Trump obviously. Some dirt the CIA, FBI, the DOJ and the year of investigations and raids were somehow unable to get, there's got to be something, right? Everyone has a dead hooker in their past just like me right?

I can't get a straight answer out of the lefties I know & encounter IRL as to why they're suddenly in favor of Assange's incarceration.
"He's just a useless shit stirrer" is the only thing I've heard that's even close to a reason.

He's an alt-right MAGA chud that helped Trump win the election, also wikileaks is a Russian intelligence agency, and he smeared pee pee poo poo on the walls. (This is what they literally believe)

I think it's now safe to say that the vaunted Assange dead man's switch is nevermore. How likely is it that he has anything on anyone anymore? What if those insurance archives have always been duds? Really disappointing no Wikileaks explosion over this. Sad times.
