Nobody’s perfect, though former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin comes pretty close just for her honesty and openness, which was on display again on Saturday in a video she posted online claiming to be “wrong” about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
“Hey, this is Sarah Palin up in Alaska and I am the first one to admit when I make a mistake,” she said. “I made a mistake some years ago, not supporting Julian Assange — thinking that he was a bad guy, that he leaked material that perhaps he shouldn’t — and I’ve learned a lot since then.”
It should be noted that emails from Palin that were obtained from her email account and published by Wikileaks when she was the late senator and GOP nominee John McCain’s running mate.
Then again, that wasn’t half as bad as being thrown to the wolves by alleged ‘Republicans’ like current MSNBC host Nicole Wallace.
“I think Julian did the right thing, and Julian did us all a favor in America, did the world a favor by fighting for what he believed was right — and ultimately he’s been proven to be right,” Palin continued. “He deserves a pardon. 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.”
She noted further that she has “learned a lot” from her “mistake” and called on people to “speak out” on Assange’s behalf.
“I know it’s coming down to the wire on whether he’s going to be pardoned or not,” she explained. “I want more Americans to speak out on his behalf and to understand what it is that he has done — and what has been done to him.”
“[Assange] was working on the people’s behalf to allow information to get to us so that we could make up our minds about different issues, about different people. He did the right thing,” Palin concluded. “I support him, and I hope that more and more people, especially as it comes down to the wire, will speak up in support of pardoning Julian.”
Palin’s appeal comes amid reports and speculation last week that President Donald Trump may pardon the Wikileaks founder, but it’s not clear that’s going to happen. Still, if Trump believes it’ll be a burn that’ll leave a scar on the contemptible deep staters in the intelligence community who finally successfully deposed him with this year’s election theft, he may just do it.
“I want more Americans to speak out on his behalf and to understand what it is that he has done and what has been done to him as he was working on the people’s behalf to allow information to get to us so that we could make up our minds about different issues,” Palin continued.
“He did the right thing. I support him. And I hope that more and more people, especially as it comes down to the wire, will speak up in support of pardoning Julian,” she added. “God bless him.”
