After Mike Flynn, Donald Trump Besieged With Requests To Pardon Julian Assange And Tiger King Joe Exotic
The world is on edge, waiting to see how President Donald Trump spends his final weeks in the White House and now that he’s pardoned Mike Flynn, speculation is running high regarding who will be the next to receive a presidential, federal pardon. There are two people whose supporters have been working overtime trying to get their cases heard before the president — Julian Assange and Tiger King, Joe Exotic.
Julian Assange’s and WikiLeaks’ supporters have been petitioning President Trump on the jailed whistleblower’s behalf, asking for him to receive a pardon. Many were shocked to learn that not only did Julian Assange have a lover while he was holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy, but he also fathered two children while in there. Now, his partner, Stella Morris, is asking Donald Trump to give Julian a pardon thereby paving the way for his freedom and his eventual return to his family.
Stella Morris tweeted at President Donald Trump on Thanksgiving and shared a photo of Julian Assange’s two sons: Max and Gabriel and asked him to pardon the journalist and let him return to his family by Christmas.
At this time, President Donald Trump hasn’t revealed if he will pardon Julian Assange or not. You may see a report by the Associated Press below.
When the story of Joe Exotic (real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage) became headlines due to Netflix’s series Tiger King, Donald Trump Jr., stated that he would ask his father to give the zookeeper a presidential pardon. Now, countless fans are asking President Trump to give Joe the pardon and let him return to society.
