An Open Letter To President Trump Regarding the Gagging of Julian Assange

Dear Mr President:

First, I would like to thank you for bringing back jobs to the US and for all you have already done for the citizens of this great country.  I am proud to have you as my President.

However, a month ago, a great man was gagged by Ecuador after receiving his citizenship in that country.  Julian Assange has been put in solitary confinement in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.  President Lenin Moreno removed his internet access, his ability to make phone calls and his rights to receive visitors other than his lawyers.  This is a clear violation of Free Speech and Free Press as it was done to silence the voice of a publisher and journalist.  As you are an advocate and protector of the Constitution of the United States of America and vowed to uphold this great piece of our history, I know you understand the ramifications of this unconstitutional act.

Mr. President, according to the United Nations Nelson Mandela Act, solitary confinement over 15 days is considered torture.  According to this PBS article seen here (PBS article on torture ) and my article that I researched thoroughly (the effects of solitary confinement ), this gag order will leave permanent irreversible damage to Julian Assange.  Mr. President, Assange saved us from Hillary by exposing her corruption, it is very possible, she would have won if not for the DNC emails and Podesta emails that Wikileaks released prior to the election.  Please read the above articles on torture and ask yourself, “does this man really deserve this?”  He has been detained for almost 8 years without proper medical care, sunlight or fresh air as well as being unable to see his own family. Is that not punishment enough for a man who simply published documents given to him by Daniel Manning aka Chelsea Manning?

President Obama gave clemency to Manning before he left office Mr. President, to a man many consider a traitor due to his taking of documents that he gave to Wikileaks and yet he walks free and even is running for Senate.  Why should an innocent publisher and journalist suffer for doing what is simply releasing the truth to the public as any good journalist does?

Mainstream Media and the DNC have targeted Wikileaks, Julian Assange and you in an attempt to remove you from office and have gone so far in recent days as to try and sue all of you for the loss of the election.  This witch hunt must end now!  Wikileaks and Julian Assange are being targeted just as you have been.  Perhaps, you don’t agree with their ideas or their beliefs, but isn’t that the great part of America? That we can disagree and even discuss our ideas without punishment?  Our Constitution protects our right to think for ourselves and speak those thoughts.  Why should it be any different for an outside publisher?

Mr. President, on behalf of Wikileaks supporters worldwide, I ask you to free this man and see to it that he is reconnected to the world and his family.  Stand up for what is right and good and free the very person who helped you win the Presidency and Make America Great Again.  Be the President who is known for upholding the Constitution and fighting for our rights! I thank you and the world thanks you!
