Assange's father calls on Australia to bring him home

John Shipton has said he was aware of a meeting involving Department of Foreign Affairs about extraditing Julian Assange to Australia.

"I saw him, the way they dragged him down the steps, the coppers (police), he didn't look good. I'm 74 and I look better than him and he's 47. It's such a shock," he said.

Assange's mother appeals to UK authorities

The mother of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, who is fighting a bid to extradite him from Britain to the United States, appealed to British authorities to be "patient, gentle and kind" to her son.

He’s a criminal. What do you expect?

He exposed the US wrongdoings. That’s something.

He’s a journalist publishing information he received. Won’t bode well for free journalism and journalists in general

He appears to be an insane megalomaniac more concerned about notoriety than the pursuit of truth. That being said, I have often wondered about the rape accusations, they just seemed so... timely.

R6 Manning hacked the Pentagon on his own. Assange printed the documents that Manning stole. Publication of documents is not illegal.

I thought the same thing. He looked like some deranged crazy shut-in who had been neglecting basic personal care and hygiene.

I know we say this a lot on DL, but he really looked like he smelled bad.

by Anonymousreply 3404/14/2019

The question is: “Is he a journalist or is he just a whistle blower?”.

He once was quite a successful journalist in Australia. Now? The jury’s still out.

But he definitely does look like Carey Mulligan.

Now we know why they have different last names. There's going to be a yuge effort on the part of the Russiapublicans to make sure he never testifies. I look for him to be "suicided":

Julian Assange wins EU journalism award

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been given an award established in honour of an assassinated journalist.

by Anonymousreply 4804/16/2019

Oh blimey this gets complicated.

So he'll serve time here. During that he'll have to face US extradition proceedings. They could either succeed or fail. The Swedes may or may not raise a European Arrest Warrant for him too. If all of those fail, then once he finishes his UK sentence then he could be deported to Ecuador or Australia. If the UK don't extradite him, and deport him, then the US could request his extradition from either of those two countries.

WikiLeaks isn't a journalistic site. It just posts the PDF files of documents written by third parties. A public Google Drive could do the same.

Journalists use WikiLeaks, but that doesn't make what they do journalism. Journalists use libraries, but libraries aren't engaging in journalism either.

Conspiracy requires:

1. An agreement between two or more people to commit a crime

2. Intent to enter into that agreement

3. Intent to commit the target crime or pursue the unlawful objective

4. An overt act in furtherance of the crime

The text messages suffice for the first three elements. All that's needed is the tiniest act in furtherance of breaking into the computer, like trying to submit a password.

the pos dad excuses a treasonous son who has helped Putin unleash violence and death, pleading his 47 year old baby needs huggies, kisses, and cookies.

Perhaps, if he hadn't fled Sweden to avoid a rape trial, he wouldn't have ended up in the Equadorian embassy in the first place.
