PARIS (AP) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange retreated from his pledge to accept extradition to the U.S. if Chelsea Manning was granted clemency, arguing Wednesday via his lawyers that what he was really asking for was an immediate pardon for the ex-Army analyst.

I, for one , will give him a pass on this. Sort of like promising to go to Canada if Trump is elected. Besides, Julian is a type of the guys who tossed Jezebel out the window to her death, figuratively speaking. ;-)
It’s a travesty.
I say he should wait until at least June, well after that traitor is released from prison. He can use it as an excuse, but staying far away from Obama’s DOJ is likely paramount for his own safety.
She wins with her hands down. Jezebel...what about
This loser has served its purpose. You don’t love the used toilet paper just because it was once really useful.
COMMUTATION is not a pardon.
He’s going back on NOTHING.
Well looks like Assange played Obama...just like every foreign despot for the last 8 years.
Assange is a coward.
If Assange just release what the governments were doing behind their peoples back I would think that he was doing something good, but he released classified info that most likely got innocent people murdered. He’s SCUM!
So is Manning. The Potus we have the next day and in a half is the coldest, coldest human we have ever elected. His actions have lead to the death of thousands and thousands of innocent lifes.
I had to deal with Progtard slime on Twitter all through the election whose go-to label on O'Keefe was "felon".
This more of the same: "Assange is a liar", by misreporting what was said.
I use the New #FakeStreamMedia translator, invented by President Trump:
"Everything the Media says is a lie."
Don’t blame him.
So are you suggesting Assange is going ahead with the extradition?
Smart unless he wants to spend the rest of his life in prison for the same thing the NYT has done numerous times.
The crazy repub SOBs running our nation would love to lock him up for life as revenge for Manning. The crazy dems hate him for exposing Hillary’s crime syndicate.
He needs to escape to Russia and stay put until sanity returns. Hopefully very soon.
Or is this all about them simply dumping on him for not going along?
Assange is a very brave man and a hero. He has exposed massive wrongdoing at great personal cost. Are you one of those types that thinks he is only “brave” if he faces a some kangaroo court?
With that bitch receiving a pardon today, he has been given the green light to continue his work.
I thought he said pardon
