Wikileaks boss Julian Assange promised to give up and to let the American authorities catch him if Barack Obama keeps the promise to set free the transgender whistleblower. Wikileaks confirmed: “If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DOJ [Department of Justice] case”. Despite the suggestion that he will agree to “US extradition”, the only outstanding warrant for Assange’s arrest is from Sweden, where he is wanted in connection with a rape allegation. President-elect Donald Trump has previously praised Assange and Wikileaks for publishing illegally hacked emails from the Democratic National Convention – casting doubt over the future of any case against the Wikileaks founder for hacking-related charges in the US. Assange has not left London’s Ecuadoran embassy since 2012. An investigation recently suggested that Wikileaks data dumps endangered gay men in Saudi Arabia.
