Ocasio-Cortez, Greene among lawmakers urging Biden to drop Assange extradition, prosecution

  • A group of lawmakers, including Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Congressperson Marjorie Taylor Greene, are urging President Biden to withdraw the U.S. Extradition request against Julian Assange and halt all prosecutorial proceedings against him. The lawmakers emphasize their commitment to free speech and freedom of the press.
  • Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, was arrested in the U.K. In 2019 and has been fighting extradition to the U.S. To face charges. The group of lawmakers believes that the charges against Assange pose a significant threat to journalistic activity protected by the First Amendment.
  • This isn't the first time that lawmakers have called for Assange's charges to be dropped. In April, a similar letter was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland by a group of lawmakers, including Ocasio-Cortez, Greene, and others.
