On todays episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker Carlson revealed that his sources inform him soon-to-be Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has informed President Donald Trump that he will be much more likely to convict President Trump on the baseless impeachment rushed through by the U.S. House of Representatives if he chooses to pardon Wikileaks whistleblower Julian Assange.
After discussing the cases of both Assange and John Kiriakou, who have been arrested and in one case convicted for the crime of exposing the truth about the United States government, Carlson revealed that neither man is expected to receive a presidential pardon.
Carlson explained that, while President Trump may personally wish to pardon one or both men, he is being blackmailed by McConnell in the U.S. Senate. According to Carlson, McConnell informed President Trump that if either man is pardoned, he will instruct Republican senators to join the Democrats in convicting President Trump in the likely-upcoming Senate impeachment trial.
Were hearing tonight that neither man, particularly Julian Assange, and we dont know if this is true, is likely to get a pardon, said Carlson. Why? Apparently because Republicans in the Senate, and by Republicans in the Senate we mean Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the leader of Republicans in the Senate, has sent word over to the White House: If you pardon Julian Assange, we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial.
