There is a bipartisan hatred of uncomfortable Truth in America and the UK, according to George Galloway, former United Kingdom member of Parliament.
The factual bases for Julian Asange’s arrest has collapsed,” Galloway says, noting that the star witness admitted to telling lies about Asange due to plea deal struck with the FBI.
Both Republicans and Democratic administrations have continued to persecute Julian Asange, founder of Wikileaks, which broke multiple stories on corruption, human rights abuses mostly perpetrated by top level government officials.
Curiously, mainstream media ignores his travails under the department of justice-led persecution for reporting truth that former president Barack Obama deemed uncomfortable. But the reports were in the public interest.
Whistleblowers have also been persecuted in the US, including Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning.
Galloway said there is no longer any “scintila of justification for continuing to hold Asange in maximum prison” amidst covid ravages.
Three US administrations have pursued Asange since June 2011 when his newspaper revealed dirty acts of President Obama’s administration.
Obama pursued him, Trump administration arrested him and President Joe Biden continued the persecution.
“Julian is guilty of nothing other than telling the truth,” Galloway told RT America. “Not a single word he ever reported has turned out to not be true. I wish the rest of our media could say the same. Yet he is on trial for speaking the truth.”
There’s a bipartisan hatred of the truth in US and the UK.
The case long discredited has collapsed. Star witness bereft of credibility. Admitted to lying about asange.
Julian Paul Assange is an Australian editor, publisher, and activist who founded WikiLeaks in 2006.
WikiLeaks came to international attention in 2010 when it published a series of leaks provided by U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning.
