A judge in New York ruled that a case against the CIA for spying on associates of Julian Assange can go forward. This means that the CIA will have to defend itself for spying on lawyers who met with Julian Assange while he was in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
The CIA tried to have this case dismissed and the judge ruled that there is “sufficient allegations that the CIA…violated [the plaintiffs’] reasonable expectation of privacy.” The CIA will now have to defend its campaign against Assange, led by Mike Pompeo who was CIA director at the time.
Another update on the Assange case: A date for his next and possibly final appeal to the UK court to fight against extradition to the United States has been set for February 20. This may be his Hail Mary.
He has been fighting extradition to the United States, claiming that he will NOT get a fair trail or be treated with any dignity. Because to be sure, he has NOT thus far since his persecution began in 2010.
Julian Assange has been indicted by the U.S. government using the Espionage Act for the simple act of journalism after he published documents showing that the U.S. and the U.K. wage war, commit war crimes and profit from it.
A bipartisan resolution in Congress supports freeing Julian Assange. It is not a law. It is a plea to the Biden administration to protect the First Amendment and “drop all charges against and attempts to extradite Julian Assange.”
If you are a UK voter, you can contact your MP or petition the House of Commons. Go to freeassange.org to learn more. If you are a U.S. voter, you can demand that your representatives support House Resolution 934. DEMAND it! If Julian Assange is not free, none of us are.
