Julian Assange, the co-founder of WikiLeaks, has apparently cut a deal with the Biden administration to plead guilty to a felony in connection to one of the biggest leaks of classified U.S. government material ever. 

CNN reports that the Biden DOJ will ask for 62 months in jail – the exact time Assange spent locked up in a U.K. prison while contesting extradition. Under the terms of a separate plea agreement, the time he has already spent in prison in Britain would count towards his U.S. sentence, meaning he will not be required to serve time again in the United States.

Prosecutors said Assange recruited hackers to “commit computer intrusions and data theft of classified information.”

One of his most famous recruits, U.S. Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning – now transgender and going by Chelsea – has served three years of a 35-year sentence after being convicted in 2010 of leaking hundreds of thousands of U. S.military records to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to more than three decades in prison, but President Barack Obama commuted her sentence only seven years into an original 35-year term.

According to prosecutors, Assange is accused of conspiring with Chelsea Manning to steal and release materials aimed at CLASSIFIED information “up to the SECRET level,” which refers to classified information whose unauthorized disclosure “could be expected to cause serious damage to the national security.”

Biden’s deal with Assange has since been slammed by Rebeccah Heinrichs, senior fellow at Hudson Institute.

Heinrichs told The Daily Wire: “We don’t know the extent of the damage Assange and Manning’s massive breach caused,” Heinrichs told The Daily Wire. “We do know they shared national secrets that jeopardized the lives of Afghans and Iraqis who were helping the U.S. military locate and destroy Taliban and Al Qaeda. Letting off Assange is another act of betrayal of those who aided the U.S. in destroying terrorists and it’s another blow to U.S. credibility and trustworthiness.”
