Congresswoman and former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard introduced House Resolution 1175 that calls for all charges against Julian Assange and Edward Snowden be dropped.

Tulsi Gabbard Bipartisan Support?

The resolution introduced claims the prosecution against Assange is a hit to America’s constitutional right of freedom of the press, “newsgathering activities and news organizations ability to acquire and publish information are protected under the First Amendment.”

Edward Snowden has been unfairly villainized and persecuted for disclosing the true scope of illegal government surveillance. This is unjust, charges against Snowden should be dropped.,

Gabbard has received support from the other side of the aisle from Republican congressmen Matt Gaetz of Florida and Thom Massie of Kentucky who have advocated that the government drop their extradition case to prosecute Julian Assange and Edward Snowden as it will create a slippery slope.

A government targeting people for what they don’t want exposed to the masses is dictator like and inhumane, when it’s the government who committed crimes not the men who brought the governments crimes to light.

The ongoing attempts to prosecute Julian Assange threaten our First Amendment rights, and should be opposed by all who wish to safeguard our constitutional rights now and in the years to come, I join my colleague, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, in calling for an immediate end to all charges against Mr. Assange.

There has been zero support from congresswoman AOC who has primarily focused on the green new deal and climate change overall, I guess that’s what happens when the left refuse to speak about the U.S. military industrial complex.

The decision to extradite Assange will come after the election the judge has said.
