Assange Plight Continues as Sweden Looks to Complicate Whistleblower’s Situation

Sweden’s latest claims to Assange could complicate the whistleblower’s otherwise likely extradition to the United States.

Julian Assange

The case of Julian Assange is not only a strange one, but a controversial one as well.

As a whistleblower at the head of Wikileaks, Assange has ostensibly changed the world for the better.  His pursuit of the truth, the whole truth, has uncovered a great many scandals, scumbags, and schemes aimed at taking advantage of folks like you and I.

At the same time, Assange was undeniably creating some danger for those affected – a fact that has to be tempered along the lines of the anecdote about the end justifying the means.

The whistleblower extraordinaire is in some serious trouble now, however, as his recent arrest has opened a legal can of worms for both Assange and those looking to get a litigious piece of him.

Not only is the United States after Julian, but now Sweden is reopening their case against him.

Sweden reopened an investigation into a rape allegation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Monday and will seek to extradite him from Britain, a potential setback to efforts by the United States to put him on trial over a huge release of secret documents.

Deputy Chief Prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson told a news conference in Stockholm she would continue a preliminary investigation that was dropped in 2017 without charges being brought after Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

Assange, who denies the accusation, was arrested in Britain last month after spending seven years hiding inside the embassy.

The Swedish prosecutor said she would request Assange be detained in his absence on probable cause for an allegation of rape and that her office would issue a European arrest warrant – the start of the extradition process.

The case against Assange form the US point of view is directly related to his work with Wikileaks, and his exposure of thousands of secret government documents.

It is far too early in the process to tell where and when Assange will be tried.

HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Well, this isn’t good. The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached. The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased. Check it out… From Politico: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings. His tweets: Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831615952236546 I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831618712100864 In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831619869728771 Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831620838662145 Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates…

CONFIRMED: Reporters From Big Name Liberal Outlets Found to Have Working Ties With Antifa

Oh, is that RIGHT!?

John Salvatore

Published

Antifa is back in the news. Not good. If members of the mainstream media were honest with the American people – or themselves – they’d report this story. But they aren’t. And they won’t. From Red State: After mapping the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa accounts on the social network Twitter, Dr. Eoin Lenihan found that many journalists from major publications such as The Guardian, Vox, and more had a direct working relationship with the Antifa members. Lenihan posted his findings to Twitter where he put up a chart showing Antifa area accounts with their related members. We mapped the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa affiliated accounts on Twitter based on an initial seed of 16 self-identifying and verifiable Antifa accounts (and Mark Bray who chose not to confirm if he is a member of Antifa but whose book makes a solid case for inclusion). https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128731412180426752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128731412180426752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F He then shortened that dataset to only 1.65 percent of the total, leaving them with the accounts that are the most connected to the various official Antifa accounts with a minimum of eight connections or more. According to Lenihan, some had far more than just eight. As the data came out, Lenihan found more than a few journalists with a multitude of connections to Antifa. https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128734136640966656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128734136640966656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128746750586564614?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128746750586564614&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128761714445570049?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128761714445570049&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128740972702183425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128740972702183425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F “Antifa” has to single-handedly be the most ironic group in America today. The “anti-fascists” do nothing but promote fascism by refusing to let the other side speak. Former Vice President Joe Biden officially kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign by praising the uninformed group. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbOU2fTg6cI Radical protesters apparently held a protest outside the home of a prominent Fox News host. Yes, outside his private residence.
