With less than two days left in President Trump’s term, barring a miracle, many have been calling for him to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Tucker Carlson threw his perspective into the mix on the eve of what is expected to a slew of pardons coming from the President.
Assange has been locked up in London for nearly a decade, first at the Ecuador Embassy and now in actual jail. His crime, according to Carlson, was not espionage. He didn’t hack the U.S. military servers that revealed information they did not want getting out to the public. He reported on them. This, more than anything else, is why Carlson and many others have championed for the President to pardon Assange.
