"Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host and vocal proponent of freeing Assange, offered something of an explanation: apparently, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has sent word to the White House that if Trump were to pardon Assange, then they would be much more likely to convict the president in a second impeachment trial. Carlson speculated whether backhanded threats like this were even legal, but "we're not lawyers, we don't know. It's certainly wrong. But more than that, it tells you everything about their priorities."
was hs last chance of walking away with a middle finger to the establishment and the deep state and he blew it. But there are talks of Mitch McFaggel holding the impeachment trial over his head if he pardoned especially snowden and assange. Cause nobody walks away exposing the establishment/deep state.
