Strange that the reason to reopen charges is the availability of the person and not new facts in a case....
That shows that even this is apparently not a matter of serving justice but probably rahter more political.
Otherwise it wouldnt make sense. Charges get dropped due to lack of evidence or such.

It means no such thing. It means he broke the law, and must answer for his crime.

Assange holds key information on the death of Seth Rich. Wonder what other information he might have that would have so many scared and angry over this extradition?

I’m not making excuses for the US’s mistakes. But, if you and others needed a leaked video/documents etc to let you know that terrible things happen in war and countries lie to cover them up, I’m not sure what to tell you guys.

Again, where are the classified cables/videos from Assange/Wikileaks hacked from China/Russia etc. Oh that’s right there isn’t is there?

The rape charge isn’t the only questionable things about Assange.

Have you guys looked up why they dropped the charges? Sweden isn’t a huge fan of the US involvement in any of this and I’d be very surprised if they were helping the US in this fashion.

There's that word hacked. As Silent has shown, he was a hacker back in his coding days but no hacking since he formed Wikileaks.
Find one legitimate link proving he/Wikileaks hacked for information and I'll gladly read it.
I'm not condoning everything he's done but he was a publisher at Wikileaks.
Imo, 'they' are trying to send a message. DON'T DO THIS.
Is it right? Meh.

The love hate is everywhere today. That Judge Napolitano at Fox called him a hero earlier. Republican and Democratic Senators want him to rot.
Wadda ya do

PS.
Don't believe everything the world leaders tell you.

It isnít a new theory. And yes Putin would like to at least influence the world to bend to his will if not outright rule it.

If it makes you feel better Iíd say the same about Trump, but he isnít nearly as crafty or savvy as Putin is at it.

It's not about what people know what happens or what people think what happens.
Its about proof what happens.

The fact that the US wants Assange so badly is because they don't want to take responsibilty for their actions. As a government they dont want to man up and held accountable for their mistakes.
That is a trait that is akin to most governments despite their goal not to be that way. It shows their hypocracy, and that is about the only way governments can be convinced to stop and change their attitude and their policy what is written in between the lines.
If the US government (or any other government) did nothing wrong, guys like Assange would have nothing to report. Its as simple as that.
Cheering for Assange to get caught is a vote for the us government to do things that are not allowed and not follow their policy and plans that got them elected.

How is this going help the US hide their misdeeds? And Assange isn’t the only one that blew the whistle or released the coverups during the Iraq/Afghanistan wars. If all he did was publish things he has a chance to fight his case in court soon enough. So let’s see what the evidence is on both sides.

Again, why just against the West and the US in particular? Russia hasn’t done any war crimes in shooting down an airliner, Ukraine or Syria to just name a few? China and their dissidents etc?

At least he has a chance to argue his case in court. Russia/China would’ve just killed him.

Not to mention the guys well known narcissism/ego. Wikileaks is better off without him and I’m sure many were not happy with a lot of his actions.

You're writing as if Wikileaks chooses.
They don't choose to GO GET certain information, they RECEIVE information.
I'd like to see Chinese secrets but them letting someone get out with something is slim to none. Paranoid Patrol 24/7

Iirc, they had a mess of Russian information but it was basically useless drivel or they couldn't confirm its authenticity. Can't remember which.
