Absolutely. If the bums were embarrassed it was their own actions that were the ultimate cause of that embarrassment.

Social Distancing is an Oxymoron. The correct term is Social Demonization or Social Repression. Bandits, thieves and politically correct thugs hide behind masks.

I hear a recently release phone call in which Assange warns the US State department that a major release of US information is potentially imminent, as he does not control the source. He warns them to protect anybody who may potentially be exposed by it. Not your typical anarchist.

In Snowden's case, people suggest he should have presented the information to someone in government or law enforcement before considering releasing it. Seriously? How quickly do you want that information buried?

Completely agree on Snowden. As much as I'd like to have faith in Assange, something rubs me the wrong way, but it's probably paranoia on my part.

I think had Snowden tried that he would have been buried along with the information.

As to Assange the Democrypts have a blatant vendetta towards him, believing he cost Hiliary the 16 election. For that reason alone Trump should pardon him. Once freed he will hopefully find a place to live where the Arkanciders can't get to him.

Govt abuses need to be exposed. Full stop. After all, taxpayers are funding them without any transparency. I wonder how many ehMac voters in this poll are Yanks & how many Canucks. It's also rhetorical. Old Joe doesn't have the stones to pardon, either.
