Julian Assange is ready for US extradition, says lawyer

In a tweet released by Wikileaks, Julian Assange’s lawyer, Melinda Taylor, is quoted as saying “Everything that he has said he’s standing by,” in regards to the Assange-Manning extradition ‘deal’.

On January 12, Julian Assange agreed to face extradition to the US if President Barack Obama granted Chelsea Manning clemency. Today, Obama took many by surprise when he did just that, reducing Manning’s sentence from 35 years to 7 and setting the new release date to May 17 of this year.
