Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese on Wednesday said that he has personally asked the US government to drop its case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is an Australian citizen.

Albanese, who previously rejected public pressure to push for Assange’s release, said that he raised the issue with US officials in recent meetings. “The government will continue to act in a diplomatic way, but can I assure the member … that I have raised this personally with representatives of the United States government,” Albanese said.

“My position is clear and has been made clear to the US administration – that it is time that this matter be brought to a close,” the Australian leader added.

They will forgive Assange, I take it, for being somewhat less than thrilled for his home country's consideration. At this point, Assange may prefer trial on the small chance of an acquittal so he could sue for a civil damage award.

Wonder why this is happening alla sudden. "Because ‘Publishing Is Not a Crime,’ Major Newspapers Push US to Drop Assange Charges"


USA! USA! USA! Bringing you democracy, or else! there were strains of VD that were incurable, and they were first found in the Philippines and then transmitted to the Korean working girls via US military. The 'incurables' we were told were first taken back to a military hospital in the Philippines to quietly die. – 4um

Chances of acquittal in federal court are small indeed. Note that some Oath Keepers were just convicted of sedition when they weren't even present on 1/6. And who would he sue? The US fedgov?

Good question. Nothing has changed over the past 12 years.
