It's not Trump that will probably go down. Remember how the DNC claimed "The Russians hacked their email server"? Yet no law enforcement agency has been allowed to have physical access to the server, only an image provided by CrowdStrike. The one piece of information that leaked out about the downloading of the data shows by the rate of the download it had to have been a local transfer (a USB drive plugged into the server or a file copy through the network to another machine), as a remote download (through the Internet) would have been significantly slower.
I bring this up because Assange has repeatedly said, "The Russians didn't hack the DNC server." I would give him the benefit of the doubt because he probably knows who provided his organization with those hacked emails. The Dems stand far more to lose when Assange starts to talk. I would not be surprised if Assange chokes on a crowbar while eating pate in his cell.
What better topic for my first post. Assange should be released immediately. But he won't be, even though he must know enough to completely destroy Trump if he starts talking. Comments?
I am not sure he's Trump's enemy more than Democrats.
It's completely obvious, Assange was such a high-level Nostradamus and 3-D chess player, that he committed all these crimes (including the rapes) and put himself into a self-exile for 7 years because he knew Trump would be POTUS at the exact moment he was taken into custody, so he could expose him for fuck-knows-what.

Correct, he won't be released.
If he possessed such knowledge he's had three years to release it.
Assange has real legal problems. It's a potential rape charge in Sweden, who knows what in the UK, and in the United States possible espionage charges.
Right now Assange's main consideration is that he better be able to convince US authorities that:
He is by legal standards a legitimate journalist. He did not conspire with Chelsea Manning or otherwise come into possession of the Manning classified files or any other classified documents through any illegal act by Assange or Wikileaks.
