RFK Jr. On Julian Assange

Independent Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. released a video on Monday on the Julian Assange situation.

London judges will decide on Tuesday if the WikiLeaks founder has exhausted all of his appeals in British courts and will be extradited to the United States.

This would mean that Assange could spend the rest of his life in prison. The newspaper publisher has spent 13 years in jail for revealing crimes committed by the United States government. He has exposed torture at Guantanamo Bay and anti-democratic actions taken by the DNC, and civilian casualties inflicted by the U.S. military in the War on Terror.

Kennedy has demanded his immediate release and pardon, and said, "Attacking the messenger is never good policy. The government's war against whistleblowers  has turned heroes into criminals. Only if we stand together can we protect free speech, which is why I am encouraging every American to sign our petition to demand the immediate pardon and release of Julian Assange."

If President Biden does not pardon Assange, Kennedy promised that on "my first day in office, I will pardon Julian Assange and investigate the corruption and crimes he exposed."

In addition, Kennedy "will issue an executive order to end all attempts by federal agents and federal agencies to censor the political speech of Americans."
