Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Renews Push to Get Pardons for Edward Snowden and Julian Assange
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is renewing her push to get pardons for Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.
Greene wanted the iconic whistleblowers and information liberators to be pardoned by Trump before he left office. Trump failed to do so, but Greene is still pushing for these heroes to be given their much-deserved freedom.
“As far as pardons are concerned, I think we should pardon Julian Assange and I think we should pardon Edward Snowden. Those people deserve pardons,” she said while being questioned by the media, adding that the members of the press “should care about what I just said” because “it really matters.”

Greene referenced Snowden and Assange while being questioned over the Jan. 6 show trials currently taking place in Washington D.C. Greene has been one of the few lawmakers to place the Jan. 6 riot in its proper contact, raise awareness of federal influence that may have initiated the violence that day, and fight for justice for the patriots whose lives are being destroyed by the overreaching probe.
Big League Politics has reported on Greene’s crusade to get answers and justice for what happened on Jan. 6:
“Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is saying that Jan. 6 patriots “are being treated like political prisoners of war” by a Biden regime that is launching a war on terror against its own people.
Greene appeared on NewsMax TV to address the torture that is being endured by the protesters who showed up to a lawful protest at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 to oppose blatant election fraud.
“I think it’s outrageous and I have no problem saying that these January 6th defendants are being treated like political prisoners of war,” Greene said.
“One of the things I did last week in California is I toured the border, and I also got to see one of the detention facilities that ICE and our U.S. Marshalls use, and I can tell you for a fact illegals that break our laws…are treated far better than the Jan. 6 defendants,” she added.
Greene believes that the Jan. 6 protesters deserve their due process rights regardless of whether or not they are guilty of any criminal acts, and the fact that they are treated like enemy combatants is anti-American.
“We should be a nation that has laws, law and order, and justice in our courts, but not a nation that treats people so badly just because we disagree with their political stance,” she said.
“This is what the Democrats are doing. They want to humiliate all people that support President Trump and are not satisfied with the election outcome and are not happy with the Biden regime that is ruling in Washington D.C.,” Greene added.”
Greene is correct. If the media really cared about safeguarding democracy, they would be advocating for the pardoning of Assange and Snowden, rather than fearmongering about Jan. 6.
