I don’t know enough about the charges to voice an opinion. My preference would be try him.

Manning certainly should not have had his sentence commuted.

And NO for Snowden.

OK.

What are his credentials?

Donald Trump’s Assistant Attorney General John Demers defended the prosecution of Assange in a statement, saying that Assange is “no journalist.”

you are correct, we should charge Jeff Bezos because he owns the Washington Post that has published illegally leaked government secrets, like phone calls between head of states.

he is not a journalist, but a publisher

Again...YOU made the point that journalists should not be prosecuted. When I pointed to the fact that Trump’s own justice department challenged Assange’s credentials you obfuscate with an unrelated argument. And just now you did it again with Bezos.

Please try to stay on topic.

As long as he didn't personally break the law, "inconvenient truth tellers" that expose the corruption in government and media should be given medals and not be in any kind of prison.

I heard McConnell threatened to have him convicted if he pardons Assange.

In a world run by dishonest politicians...the public can only rely on the whistleblowers in order to find out the "truth" about the conditions under which we all live. Only in a corrupt world could the truth-tellers get prosecuted...while the liars assume the positions of judge and jury.

Yes

Some whistleblowers are protected ad nauseum and some are prosecuted or murdered
