The trial of Julian Assange continues apace in Woolwich Crown Court, where Monday the Trump administration was accused of extortion.

If extradited, Assange faces 18 charges and up to 175 years in prison.

A lot more interesting facts and theories are going to come out in this trial, of that you may be certain.

Strange case. But with such strange people, what more can you expect?

Apparently Rohrabacher was the envoy with the pardon offer.

I have no pity for this fool. The problem with being a fanatic with the conviction that you’re the smartest guy in the room is that your prejudices and ego make you easy to play. And Assange got played the way Jimi Hendrix used to play the electric guitar, including being lit on fire and smashed up onstage.

For a clearer view (less of Assange’s side, more of reality), go read emptywheel’s post.

Maybe Assange is afraid of getting a visit from Barr and then getting Epsteined if he ends up in an American jail.

Hell, yaya, he’s been worried about that treatment from various parties for years now.

It was just a quid pro quo at a perfect meeting. There was no extortion involved!
