US Gave Verbal Pledge of No Death Penalty for Assange

But of course.

There are fates worse than death.

Basically he will be thrown into a deep dark hole where he will take showers with Bubba who will ask him to pick up the soap.... maybe he will come to enjoy it after a while?

I am with you Danni - Death Penalty? Seriously? A "verbal" pledge? LMAO - In writing please because he certainly didn't do anything to warrant that. Based on what I am hearing the charges are, I would say no Super Max lockup. Tremain - Super Max is a fate worse than death and your bubba.

Death Penalty? Well, if they find that Assange WAS somehow responsible for green-lighting the Iraq invasion in 2003, then I would say, yes definitely.

McCain says Taliban 'murdered' people because of Chelsea Manning and WikiLeaks
www.politifact.com

"In the several years since WikiLeaks released hundreds of thousands of government documents leaked by Manning, the government has not publicly identified a single example of the Taliban killing someone because that person was named in the leaks. If someone had died as a result, it seems logical that the incident would have become public knowledge, either through Manning's trial or in media reports."

They'll just put him in a solitary 3X3X6 drawer 23/7. No one is ever supposed to scoop the NYT or WaPo, look what happened to Gary Webb for exposing a CIA cocaine smuggling ring.

Baloney. Colluding with Putin is not petty. Telling Russians before he was elected that he would take away the sanctions on Russians was not petty. He committed real crimes and now Barr is trying to cover up those crimes. Barr should end up in prison.

Did the US press get the death penalty for publishing the pentagon papers?
