Of course. That's because only republicans are dishonest.



I specifically said Trump

Get an honest Republican in office and I am fine

Get a dishonest democrat in office and I am for treatment the same as I advocate for Trump

I read the indictment. If he was involved in stealing documents and braking into our computer systems, he should be prosecuted fully. Not just for him, but every time it happens. Stealing files is not a "Freedom of the Press" issue.

He just spent seven years in a box. Time served.

Sure.

I may not support him or his policies but if he was to win and was honest I am fine with that

There is a difference between wanting your party in power to support your beliefs vs wanting anyone in your party to be president no matter how bad he is

So a murderer on the run who eludes punishment by hiding at their girlfriends house did time served for living in a box

The original rape charge was a trumped-up private prosecution in Sweden, dropped quite some time ago.

WikiLeaks was a good idea but people forget that dumping humungous numbers of documents there allows for hundreds of forgeries to go unscrutinized.

Putin's Pals essentially used WikiLeaks as a tool by dumping so much data and Assange had no way of knowing this. the seven year police/military presence outside the embassy was funded by the USA.

Conflicting reports are out on that...

--the embassy gave it to a shelter because Assange would not clean the box

--Assange gave it away so that it could live a normal life

The issue, as I understand the actual charge, is that Assange actively helped Chelsea Manning hack the govt computer in order to get the documents he then published.



Thatís Bradley Manning you are talking about, not Chelsea.
