Re: Mr J. Assange, apparantly.
"Nope - lost all sympathy for the man the moment he jumped bail."
He published Chelsea Manning leaks, as did most US press. They put him on an "arrest this man for something" man-hunting list. We know this from the leaks from Snowden published by others.
Various bullshit charges followed that were later dropped.
Chelsea Manning is lauded as a hero these days, exposing a bunch of lies and deceptions and war crimes. But it took some guilt for them to admit Manning was right. The prosecution of Assange is as a proxy for the "crimes" of Manning.
"Conspiracy to" hack, is not hacking. "Publishing leaked secrets from others" is not "disclosing secrets".
He has no case to answer.
I get that he toadied up to Trump for a pardon, and that makes him a figure of hate for some, but that's not a reason to go along with this extra-judicial crap. If you don't like Trump, prosecute *Trump*, not Assange as a proxy for Trump, or Assange as a proxy for Manning.
