Julian Assange’s lawyers are making headlines around the world —- and this time for an extraordinary claim made against Donald Trump and the widely known fact he conspired with the Russians in 2016.
According to the claimant document, lawyers for Assange made the extraordinary claim that Trump offered a full pardon if he was willing to go on the record that the Russians didn’t play a part in the DNC-email-back that brought down Hillary Clinton in the election that same year.
Assange is currently wanted in the US on 18 state related charges related to the exposing of stunning American secrets that exposed decades worth of illegal crimes and espionage.
Assange is set to undergo a four week extradition hearing on 24 February. That hearing will determine whether or not Assange is handed over to the Americans, something that has largely been seen as a death sentence.
