Julian Assange arrestedAn expert on terrorism says justice is now being served for Julian Assange.

Assange's lawyers are attempting to block his extradition from Britain to the United States, where he has been charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion in aiding former Army analyst Bradley Manning (now known as "Chelsea" Manning) with cracking a password to a classified U.S. government computer in 2010.

Justice Department officials say Manning transmitted troves of classified government files to Assange, whose Wikileaks website posted the materials to a worldwide audience. Assange was arrested last Thursday when the Ecuadorian government withdrew his asylum after he had stayed in its embassy in London for nearly seven years.

"Justice is served," says Brigitte Gabriel, founder and chairman of ACT for America, the largest national security grassroots organization in the U.S. "He is somebody who committed treason against the United States. That will destroy our country, and we cannot allow this to happen…

"Therefore, I think what has happened with the arrest of Julian Assange should be made as an example to any future person who may be even considering exposing or selling secrets of the United States to realize that you may escape for a while, but sooner or later, justice will be served. The United States will bring you back here to serve your justice."

Gabriel commends President Trump for bringing Assange to justice after his predecessor, Barack Obama, pardoned Manning.
