From Scheerpost

One of the biggest moments in Julian Assange's trial is slated to happen next month, when the embattled and imprisoned WikiLeaks founder's final extradition hearing is held in Great Britain. And as host Lee Camp points out before introducing his guest in this clip from "Redacted Tonight," there have been some stunning developments recently in Assange's storynamely, the revelation that the U.S. government and a certain three-letter intelligence agency were ginning up possible plans to assassinate Assange.

If ever there were an expert on Julian Assange, it would surely be Camp's guest, John Shipton -- Assange's father -- who calls the assassination plot considered by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other U.S. officials "pretty scandalous," if not entirely surprising. Shipton also holds forth on the American government's big quandary if Assange were to be brought onto U.S. soil to face charges, the man who perjured himself to implicate Assange, and why he thinks his son's work has been a "great success" despite his plight. Have a look at the clip above to watch the whole interview.

Yes, I would like to see Julian have a fair trail. Nobody wants to comment because probably they feel they might be put on some Govt. Wacko List. Once you are on the list, your gonads could be subject to digital assimilation, which I have no idea what that means. We are in a state of voluntary paranoid compliance, possibly of the Third World Type. Ok, your move.
