That could work! Trump can put him on the 2020 campaign, and we will lift the tariffs on crumpet.

Last Tuesday a top lawyer for the New York Times named David McCraw warned a room full of judges that the prosecution of Julian Assange for WikiLeaks publications would set a very dangerous precedent which would end up hurting mainstream news media outlets like NYT, the Washington Post, and other outlets which publish secret government documents.

“I think the prosecution of him would be a very, very bad precedent for publishers,” McCraw said. “From that incident, from everything I know, he’s sort of in a classic publisher’s position and I think the law would have a very hard time drawing a distinction between The New York Times and WikiLeaks.”

Do you know where I read about this? Not in the New York Times.

BBC accused of ‘breaching code’ by putting Assange critic in charge of special on WikiLeaks founder
Published time: 1 Aug, 2018 17:20

BBC’s Newsnight will air a special on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange hosted by journalist John Sweeney, despite what the #FreeAssange campaign say are tweets in “clear breach” of the BBC objectivity standards by the journalist.

Julian Assange is the Prisoner of Knightsbridge. It's a yet to be made film about a Russian agent holed up in London's fancy area @abbydees

He should pack a small ruck sack, go and stand on the embassy doorstep, point suddenly and dramatically at the sky in one direction and then quickly leg it in the other direction. That'll work.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
