Wall Street Journal just dropped an article about the “legal drama” that they call Julian Assange. Take a look at what they are saying below.

Julian Assange’s case addressed by WSJ

The US Department of Justice is considering on whether to allow WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to plead guilty to a lesser charge of the mishandling of classified material to potentially end the legal proceedings, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Their article begins by stating that “the U.S. Justice Department is considering whether to allow Julian Assange to plead guilty to a reduced charge of mishandling classified information, according to people familiar with the matter, opening up the possibility of a deal that could eventually result in his release from a British jail.”

The piece continues and states the following:

“Assange, the divisive WikiLeaks founder, is fighting a drawn-out legal battle with the British government to avoid being extradited to the U.S. to face trial for publishing thousands of confidential U.S. military records and diplomatic cables around 2010. A U.K. court is currently considering whether to allow a last-ditch appeal by the 52-year-old. After U.S. prosecutors charged him in 2019, U.K. law-enforcement officials apprehended him, and he has been in a London prison ever since.”

Calling for Julian Assange’s freedom

Recently, it was reported that Paul Gosar, a Republican Party representative from Arizona, has introduced a resolution in the U.S. government.

The resolution asserts that the First Amendment safeguards “regular journalistic activities” and calls on the government to halt its prosecution of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. Assange has been accused of publishing classified documents from the U.S. military.

The bipartisan resolution introduced Wednesday was co-sponsored by Reps. James McGovern, D-Mass.; Thomas Massie, R-Ky.; Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga.; Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla.; Eric Burlison, R-Mo.; Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Clay Higgins, R-La. Check out my previous article about the matter, as I kept addressing the case of Assange which is crucial to his freedom, the freedom of the press, but most importantly – the freedom of us all.
