The journalist Julian Assange, who is facing 175 years in the US in prison, could be pardoned if he reveals the name of the one who hacked the Democrats’ e-mail.
Assange is known for revealing to the public extremely inconvenient for the United States facts about military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, about the conditions of detention of prisoners in the secret Guantanamo prison. For a long time he was hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, but last year he was deprived of his asylum. Now the court is deciding the issue of his extradition to the United States, where the journalist faces life imprisonment. In addition, human rights activists fear that Assange’s states will face reprisals.
However, according to the journalist’s lawyer Edward Fitzgerald, Trump offered the founder of WikiLeaks a deal. Assange needs to be told who hacked the e-mail of the Democratic National Committee. In return, he will be pardoned.
