Senator Rand Paul Thinks Julian Assange Should Be Granted Immunity

Rand Paul believes that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be given immunity in exchange for him testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Do you think Julian Assange needs immunity, a bulletproof vest, a gas mask and a food taster?

But let’s face it this is never going to happen because Assange knows where the deep state bones are buried.

Speaking to the Gateway Pundit, Senator Paul asserted that Assange likely has important information about the hack and that it’s unlikely he would agree to testify without immunity.

“I think that he should be given immunity from prosecution in exchange for coming to the United States and testifying,” Senator Paul told the Gateway Pundit. “I think he’s been someone who has released a lot of information, and you can debate whether or not any of that has caused harm, but I think really he has information that is probably pertinent to the hacking of the Democratic emails that would be nice to hear.”

“It’s probably unlikely to happen unless he is given some type of immunity from prosecution,” Senator Paul added.

In a letter delivered to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where Assange has resided for the past six years, Committee Chairman Senator Richard Burr requested that he make himself available for a closed hearing at a “mutually agreeable time and place.”

The committee has requested for him to appear in person, but Assange, in theory, could testify through the use of a video livestream. The only technical hinderance would be the fact that the Ecuadorian government cut off Assange’s internet and communications in March, under pressure from the US government.

“The inquiry has asked for him to appear in person at a mutually agreeable time and place. We are seriously considering the offer but must ensure Mr. Assange’s protection is guaranteed,” Jennifer Robinson, a member of Assange’s legal team, told CNN. More

Bring him in and let him tell what he knows. I’m absolutely certain it won’t hurt President Trump but will do tremendous damage to the corrupt Deep State. He will need immunity, and 24/7 armed security before, during and after his testimony.
