He has the "technical" Constitutional right to do what he did. That said, he is a total scumbag and an ABUSER of the First Amendment …. as is ANYBODY who uses free speech to undermine the United States! The use of a freedom guaranteed by our Constitution to UNDERMINE that Constitution is one of the WORST tools of a TRAITOR!

Lol. Sorry Alfie. I upvoted you but I had to take it back. I thought you were talking about Trump!

Assange is not even American.

That said, I do agree with you that he's a piece of shit. Assange used a personal vendetta he had against Hillary to unbalance the outcome of the US election. As far as I am concerned he should be jailed. Assange would have lost nothing by withholding those emails until the election was over, especially since they did not contain proof of any serious crime. They were just a negative publicity tool obviously sent to him by people working for the opposition.

You honestly have to gape in incredulity at why Assange made the decision that he did.

I WILL upvote YOU, because I agree with you. I also agree that the same words fit Trump.

Regardless if Assange is an American citizen, he STILL took advantage of an American freedom .. you don't have to be a citizen to have freedom of speech in America, and he abused that freedom.

Cool. I don't remember you whining about him going after Bush. I don't remember me whining either.

He's neither. He's a hero framed for rape that has absolutely nothing to do with his credibility as an anarchic blogger. He's actually the real hero, Snowden is a fucking rat.

Retard is such a nasty, nasty word. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Assange didn't betray people to do what he did. He is the actual epitome of what a truth-seeking rebel is.
