To President Biden

Dear President Biden,
I write to you at this time to express my grave dismay at your administration’s willingness to continue pursuing the extradition of Julian Assange, just cleared today by the British High Court to move forward. This occurred  just two days after Anthony Blinken  announced at the Summit for Democracy United States efforts to support independent journalists and reporters targeted for their work. Unfortunately, the hypocrisy of that statement is made clear by the obvious fact that you are continuing to prosecute an individual whose only crime is telling the truth, regardless of how unpleasant that truth is to our country. Therefore, I am respectfully calling on you and your Justice Department to immediately and unconditionally drop all charges pending against Julian Assange and release him. I wish to remind you that the Obama administration, where you served as Vice-President, dropped these charges due to the “New York Times Problem”. If Mr Assange is successfully prosecuted on the charges as they now stand there it will set a precedent that puts all journalists in jeopardy and will provide cover for oppressive regimes around the world to do the very same thing. Release Julian Assange NOW
