The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could suffer the same fate as pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who died under highly suspicious circumstances if he is extradited to the United States to stand trial for publishing diplomatic cables in 2012, his brother predicted in an interview with Tucker Carlson.
On Monday, Dec. 14, Gabriel Shipton, Julian Assange’s brother, spoke with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who asked him if he believed his brother would survive if he were to be extradited to the United States.
“No, I don’t. Prisoners here can’t be kept safe. Even the most high-profile visitors like Jeffrey Epstein couldn’t be kept safe in prison so what hope will Julian have here? I think if he gets extradited, he will most likely die,” Shipton responded.
Carlson opined that Assange is a journalist who did not hack into anyone’s computer; he just published information that is undoubtedly embarrassing to the establishment and its foreign policy, something that, for example, the New York Times has done for over 100 years he said.
For Carlson, a harsh critic of the Biden administration, Assange’s case is blown out of proportion, given that there are so many problems plaguing the United States, real criminals not being convicted, etc. So he asked Shipton why he thought U.S. justice was so focused on his brother.
“People who run our democracies would like to rule them with impunity. Don’t want people to know what’s been done in their names, they don’t want the public to be informed,” replied Shipton, who warned that they are using Assange as an example to scare anyone who tries to challenge the system.
“If you tell the truth about our secrets, if you tell the truth about the security of the state… this is going to happen to you,” Shipton assured. “You are going to be locked in a prison for the rest of your life. Your reputation will be destroyed, you will be taken away from your family.”
On Dec. 10, the U.K. High Court overturned a lower court ruling and authorized Assange’s extradition to the United States, where the judiciary accuses him of espionage.
Assange could be sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for the 18 charges against him.
Although his lawyer has assured that she would appeal the decision, the grounds for keeping the Wikileaks founder in the United Kingdom, his physical integrity, were dismissed by the High Court because the U.S. government gave assurances that he would not be subjected to ill-treatment or locked up in a maximum-security prison.
However, similar assurances were justly given to the pedophile Epstein who said he would never commit suicide, yet turned up dead under highly suspicious circumstances days before testifying about the powerful characters to whom he provided underage girls for sexual purposes.
According to an opinion piece by Breitbart journalist Allum Bokhari, Assange’s case is one of ‘anarcho-tyranny,’ which refers to a state in which the deserving do not face law enforcement, while the undeserving face the full force of state tyranny, giving examples, like Carlson, of the thousands of criminals the state fails to prosecute and allows to go free under lenient law enforcement.
Bokohari states, “In the eyes of the political establishment, the primary crime of Assange and the organization he founded, WikiLeaks, is that he embarrassed them and their mission of world domination.”
