There may not be two members of Congress further away from each other on the ideological spectrum than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
But there is a temporary truce between the two.
Marjorie Taylor Greene and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cut one deal that no one saw coming.
Greene and Ocasio-Cortez agree on next to nothing.
However, the pro-Trump, America First conservative and the socialist radical did find an area of common ground on opposing extraditing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States to stand trial on Espionage Act charges.
The Espionage Act is the same law Biden prosecutor Jack Smith used to indict Trump on in the Mar-a-Lago document hoax.
Attorney General Bill Barr began this process – Donald Trump backed off pardoning Assange during his final days in office for fear it would provoke GOP senators to vote to convict him in the January 6 impeachment hoax – and the Biden administration is pushing full steam ahead to jail Assange for the simple crime of performing basic journalism by exposing the Deep State’s secrets.
The letter Greene and Ocasio-Cortez signed warned that Communist China cited the Assange case to bash the United States as hypocritical and that it represented the most serious attack on the free press in recent history.
“We are aware that the Assange case has been cited by officials of the People’s Republic of China to claim that the U.S. is ‘hypocritical’ when it comes to purported support for media freedom. We are also well aware that should the U.S. extradition and prosecution go forward, there is a significant risk that our bilateral relationship with Australia will be badly damaged,” the letter stated.
“It is the duty of journalists to seek out sources, including documentary evidence, in order to report to the public on the activities of government. The United States must not pursue an unnecessary prosecution that risks criminalizing common journalistic practices and thus chilling the work of the free press. We urge you to ensure that this case be brought to a close in as timely a manner as possible,” the letter added.
Assange used to be a folk hero on the left for publishing secrets about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq which showed the government lied to the American people.
But in 2016 Assange became public enemy number one after WikiLeaks published Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails.
Democrats and the media baselessly claimed the Russians handed Assange the emails and one spoke on the Russia collusion hoax wheel was born.
Assange repeatedly denied that the Russians were his source but that was no matter.
Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump and the D.C. swamp needed a scapegoat.
And that’s where the push to jail Assange gained momentum.
