Talk about perfect timing.
As we mentioned earlier, shocking audio of a phone call between Julian Assange and Hillary’s State Department was obtained by Project Veritas.
Julian Assange to Hillary Clinton's State Department following the theft of 250,000 diplomatic cables from @Wikileaks:

This development proves that Assange sent dire warnings to U.S. State Department officials about the publication of stolen unredacted documents.
3 facts about WikiLeaks which those who want Assange to rot in jail have buried:
1) WL redacted documents when publishing Iraq & Afghanistan War Logs & diplomatic cables to protect the innocent; 2) WL requested Hillary's State Dept to help in redacting: they refused; 3) This: https://t.co/IDoHyKeHEM

We’ve now learned that Julian Assange has formally requested a pardon from President Trump.
The calls for Trump to pardon Assange continue to grow stronger and stronger by the day.

"If it weren't for Assange I wouldn't know about the war crimes that our country has committed…these are things we should all know. We just need to get Assange out of jail. We need to get the U.S. to drop the indictment." Ben Cohen on Julian Assange #FreeAssange #PardonAssange pic.twitter.com/IFaiG1cerQ

Even radical AOC realizes Assange deserves to be pardoned:
Ocasio-Cortez says Snowden & Assange should be considered for presidential pardons
"I think do believe that who have been…prosecuted under these unjust laws should be pardoned."https://t.co/gfjo8h3j9B

Our friends at Gateway Pundit went into further detail about the pardon request:
Assange’s fiancé Stella Morris, the mother of his two young children, has previously called for a pardon — but a formal request was not filed with the White House until this week.
Assange is imprisoned in the United Kingdom pending a decision about his extradition to the United States where he faces charges under the Espionage Act for his publication of the Iraq and Afghan War Logs. If convicted he could face a maximum sentence of 175 years for the “crime” of publishing material that the US government did not want the population to know.
In 2018, President Trump’s attorneys quietly made a case in defense of WikiLeaks throughout legal filings responding to a lawsuit filed by Democrat Party donors who alleged that the campaign and former advisor Roger Stone conspired with Russians to publish the leaked Democratic National Committee emails.
The article continues to state:
The formal pardon request comes on the heels of a viral claim from a Trump ally that the president would be pardoning the publisher. While he ended up retracting his statement, claiming he had faulty sources, it was clear that it was a move that people from both sides of the political spectrum support. The tweet gained over 75,000 “likes” on Twitter in about an hour, before being retracted.
National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden weighed in on the news saying that “I very much hope this is true. The case against Assange is based on a legal theory that would criminalize the work of every journalist, both at home and abroad.”
Snowden has previously lobbied for a pardon for Assange, even before one for himself.
“Mr. President, if you grant only one act of clemency during your time in office, please: free Julian Assange. You alone can save his life,” Snowden tweeted earlier this month.
Could we finally see a pardon for Assange this week?
