Donald Trump has stated “it’s OK with me” if the Justice Department attempts to charge Julian Assange.

America’s Attorney General has specified that the arrest of WikiLeaks founded Julian Assange is “Priority” for the United States.
Prosecutors are believed to be readying charges of conspiracy, theft of government property and violating the Espionage Act against WikiLeaks and its founder.
President Donald Trump has previously claimed to “love WikiLeaks” after the leak of Hilary Clinton’s emails.
“I have never seen anything like it. You have never seen anything like it, 33,000 emails – she deletes them.” He said before being elected.
He had, however, called Chelsea Manning (previously Bradley Manning) and “ungrateful traitor” for speaking out against Obama. He said Chelsea should never have been released from prison.
Despite the U.S. preparing these charges, it’s going to be difficult to build a case against Assange without first having to take legal action against other parties involved in the leaks.
The United Nations had previously necessitated that Julian Assange would need to be freed and allowed to defend himself without retaliation by the U.S. government.
