Assange Granted Appeal Chance as Biden Faces Pressure to Drop Charges

Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, has been given the chance to appeal his extradition case in the United Kingdom’s High Court. This news comes after Assange was arrested in 2019 outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. He has been held in prison since then. Some believe President Joe Biden should drop the case against Assange.

The High Court in London decided that Assange can continue to fight against being sent to the United States. Supporters of Assange gathered outside the court to show their support. They believe the case should be dropped and even had signs saying, “Let him go Joe,” referring to President Biden.

Assange’s legal team argued that he may not receive fair treatment and could be targeted because he is not a US citizen. The judges agreed that there are important legal issues regarding freedom of speech and nationality to consider in this case.

It is not yet known when the next hearing will take place. Assange is facing serious charges related to leaking confidential information about the US military in 2010 and 2011. Some people argue that Assange’s actions were protected by the First Amendment, while others believe he endangered lives.

President Biden has said he is thinking about a request from Australia to drop the charges against Assange. Australia, Assange’s home country, has also called for his return. The situation surrounding Assange is far from over, and the outcome of the appeal could determine what lies ahead for the Wikileaks founder.

In the opinion of many conservative Republicans, Assange’s actions were not protected under the First Amendment. Instead, they endangered American lives and compromised national security. President Biden should not give in to calls to drop the charges against Assange. National security should always come first, and individuals who endanger it must be held accountable for their actions. Assange’s appeal should not distract from the serious consequences of his actions, and he should face the full extent of the law for the harm he has caused.
