The Creator of the site WikiLeaks Julian Assange is ready to surrender to US authorities and to stand trial under one condition: if the President will pardon Chelsea manning, former analyst of U.S. intelligence Bradley manning and Assange have provided classified information.
Offer Assange appeared on the WikiLeaks Twitter feed: “If Obama will pardon manning, Assange will agree in exchange for a prison sentence in the United States, despite its obvious illegality,” written there.
Also the record is attached to another tweet — a request from Assange lawyer Barry Pollack for U.S. attorney General Loretta Lynch. Pollack asked him to give him information on the progress of the investigation and to stop the persecution of his client.
We will remind that since 2012, Assange has to be in isolation in London, in the Embassy of Ecuador. This is due to the fact that in Sweden, Assange charged with rape, and from there it can be issued in the United States.
Read how Assange got himself a kitten.
Bradley (now Chelsea) manning at the time gave WikiLeaks more than 700 thousand different documents of the U.S. government, for which the result in 2013 was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
If Obama grants clemency to Manning, Assange will agree to a US prison in exchange — despite its clear unlawfulness https://t.co/MZU30S3Eia
