Bipartisan Letter Calls Urges Biden Regime To Liberate Journalist Julian Assange

Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have forged an unlikely alliance in order to have the Biden regime drop all charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. 

14 other members of the United States Congress joined this bipartisan duo calling on President Joe Biden to immediately stop the US’s extradition and prosecution plans against Assange. 

The group of representatives argue that if Assange’s prosecution continues, US-Australian bilateral relations will likely deteriorate. 

Christine Maas of Reclaim the Net highlighted signatories of this letter, which is made up of the most unlikely coalition of representatives:  

“The letter has been signed by Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Greg Casar (D-Texas), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Eric Burlison (R-Mo.), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Paul Gosar (R-Az.), Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.), Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Matthew Rosendale (R-Mont.), and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).”

The letter directed to Biden, emphatically declares that “it is the duty of journalists to seek out sources, including documentary evidence, in order to report to the public on the activities of the government.” The group argues that this highly-politicized prosecution could make regular journalistic practices illegal, thus putting free speech rights in jeopardy. The letter demands that Assange’s case be wrapped up.

Assange is still imprisoned in the Belmarsh prison in London, where he is opposing the US’s extradition efforts designed to charge him under the Espionage Act in addition to separate charges. 

Assange gained notoriety for publishing hundreds of thousands of confidential documents connected to the US’s military escapades in Afghanistan and Iraq. He has been a major target of the national security states in Western nations across the globe for his move to expose the excesses of the Anglo-American military axis. 

Let’s hope that America First populists continue making noise about Assange’s case. Should he be fully charged by the US government, free speech rights will be in constant state of danger from here on out.
