I see your point, but he has to have some leverage to win his release, right?

I think he was going to release a lot on November 9, 2016, but then Trump won. I want to know how he found out. He probably did not believe it, and thought it was a joke.

I’d like to think that. However, again, that just indicates that the guy is acting out of self-interest and not some greater sense of altruism or doing the right thing. Of course you can’t fault a person for that, but at the same time, wouldn’t offering proof of some international politician pedophile ring be worth risking your life for?

Yeah, I am not disagreeing with you or anything. It is hard to say what is going through his mind.

I know that he had several falling outs with people before he ended up at the embassy. It seems like he was not easy to get along with and always wanted to be in the limelight. Could be several reasons for that, including what you say.

If you were Assange, wouldn't you use your position to get some? I mean, you would be world famous with all that power. No wonder Pamela Anderson made a visit or two...

I agree.
