WATCH: Palin calls for Assange to be Pardoned “He deserves all of us to understand more about what he has done in the name of real journalism”

In a new video, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin joined those who are calling for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to be pardoned by President Trump.

Others who have called for Assange to be pardoned include Rep Matt Gaetz, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Rep. Thomas Massie.

Palin said in her video posted online “I made a mistake some years ago, not supporting Julian Assange, thinking that he was a bad guy. I’ve learned a lot since then.”

“He deserves a pardon,” she added “He deserves all of us to understand more about what he has done in the name of real journalism, and that’s getting to the bottom of issues that the public really needs to hear about and benefit from.”
