"he's under investigation and could face a 45-year jail term, so he deliberately helped Trump in order to win a presidential pardon."

I heard he originally released those emails to imprison Hillary. Should have known he also had his own agenda.

Well, he definitely contributed in helping Trump win the election by releasing emails that would lose Hilary votes. So I think that Trump will definitely pardon, or at least do something to benefit, Julian Assange.

WikiLeaks is a platform in which journalists do their job and release the things that those in power did not want the public to see. They expose everything to the people, whether it will benefit them personally, or not. However, I do see the convenient timing of releasing Hilary's emails, and I hope that it was for the people and not for Julian Assange's personal gain. That would destroy everything that WikiLeaks stands for and what they represent.

Wikileaks has now become a part of the successful, powerful, greedy and dishonest 20% that they initially promised and proved to expose to the people.

Exposing Hilary was never about informing the people. It was simply to get into Trump's good books as, even if he lost the election, Trump has far more power and influence than Hilary ever did.
