That implies he's got a kill switch... and I'm inclined to believe that insteadOr maybe Trump already knows what Assange has and is threatening to pardon him would mean the release of documents. If they didn´t kill Assange after all this time. It´s probably something big.
Snowden is a deep state operative? Pretty sure he’s forced to stay in exile in Russia...It's highly unlikely that Assange has anything that the deep state and its quarter billion dollar intelligence budget doesn't know, this is not 1980 where you could hide secrets on a microfilm and no one could get to them. Every email, phone call, monetary transaction is monitored, as well an organization like Wikileaks probably has some informant plants. That's how they've managed to nab Assange, they've used a deep state leftie Swedish operative to honeypot him.
Assange himself is somewhat compromised, though not as much as Snowden, who is a limited hangout, if not an outright deep state operative. Assange for example has stated last year about 9/11 that he is "constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud." He's probably gatekeeping out of self-preservation at this point.
Can you direct myself and other interested readers to your most substantive evidence that (a) Snowden and (b) Assange are compromised? Thanks.[snipped]
