Julian Assange is an obnoxious twerp, but Britain was more fun when it used Universal Jurisdiction to go after Pinochet and Israeli war criminals.

Also, I don’t suppose we can expect the arrests of senior editors at The Guardian and New York Times? Of course not… because Trump’s DoJ now claims that Assange “engaged in a conspiracy” with Chelsea Manning to release classified information—which is almost certainly false, but also the only thing keeping this from slipping into First Amendment territory. Meanwhile, will these newspapers defend Assange?
