The most used term online when discussing politics in October was the word WikiLeaks, but now the election is over, they’re far from done.
WikiLeaks was on the side of truth during the election, but that also benefited Donald Trump.
Now that Trump has won, thanks to Assange and his team constantly releasing damming emails from Hillary’s campaign, what can we expect next?
With a coming Trump presidency, it looks like Assange’s freedom could be restored.
On Monday, Sweedish officials are interviewing Assange in London, and taking his statement on the alleged crimes. Swedish officials have not given Assange the opportunity to give a statement in six years. Finally they are listening.
A live feed was available from outside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London where Assange has been living for the last four years.
A large crowd gathered outside the embassy and held signs that said FREE ASSANGE.
Julian Assange has become a “people’s” hero for releasing private documents from politicians and exposing corruption.
World leaders think of him a little differently.
Right now Trump is thanking his lucky stars for Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, but that could be different if WikiLeaks receives emails on Trump.
Thankfully WikiLeaks is not beholden to any party, just the truth and that is something we need in journalism.
Do you think authorities should release Julian Assange? Let us know in the comments below.
