Published

Wikileaks publisher and whistleblower Julian Assange has been arrested by police in the United Kingdom, who removed him from his residence at the Ecuadorian embassy on Thursday morning.

Assange was led out of the embassy in the custody of officers. The arrest, which has been seen as increasingly likely in recent days, was caught on camera.

Assange had resided at the Embassy of Ecuador in the UK since 2012, having facing prosecution for sexual assault allegations in Sweden. The charges have since been dropped, but it’s possible the Australian journalist could face extradition to the United States to face charges related to his activities publishing documents leaked by whistleblowers.

The government of Ecuador seems to have revoked the grant of political asylum it originally gave Assange in 2012. UK government officials have thanked Ecuador for allowing them to arrest Assange, on the basis of his failure to appear in court after the 2012 sexual assault allegation.

Should Assange go on to face prosecution in the United States due to his activities with Wikileaks, he could represent one of the most high-profile individuals to face charges related to exposing sensitive information as a journalist. The Australian publisher, having once been popular on the political left for publishing materials critical of the Iraq War, became a target of animosity from the Deep State and American liberals for his exposure of the Democratic National Committee’s hacked emails, which revealed the national party rigged its 2016 Presidential Primary for Hillary Clinton.

Assange should appear in court within the coming days, and Big League Politics will continue to monitor the situation.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
