A few days after former President Donald Trump promised to release Silk Road Marketplace founder Ross Ulbricht, the former president has now considered pardoning Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

In addition, Trump has hinted at holding Dr Anthony Fauci, former Director of the National Institute of Health, accountable if re-elected.

In an interview with Tim Pool on the TimcastIRL podcast before his speech at the Libertarian National Convention, the former president was asked about Assange.

“Well, I’m going to talk about that day today, and we are going to give it a very serious consideration,” Trump replied. “And we will have a couple of other things to say in the speech that I think you’ll love.”

Assange, who is currently being held in Belmarsh Prison in the U.K., is facing 18 charges related to espionage and classified documents through WikiLeaks. He is awaiting a hearing in London’s high court, where he is appealing his extradition to the U.S.

In the same interview, Trump commented briefly on holding Fauci accountable for lying in Congress and if he intends to appoint an Attorney General to prosecute Fauci.

“Yeah, and we’ll take a look at the statute of limitations because, you know, the statute of limitations is quite long,” Trump said. “We’ll be taking a look at that very seriously.”

Fauci, the former chief medical adviser under President Joe Biden, came under fire for mishandling the COVID-19 pandemic and his agency’s research funding at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. During congressional testimony, Fauci denied that his agency funded the research.

In 2020, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Fauci served under Trump as one of the key members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

Meanwhile, Trump called out the Biden administration for supporting Fauci while claiming that he was the one who stopped the funding.

“Fauci wasn’t a big player in my administration like he was after I left,” Trump said. “I mean, Biden made him the king of everything.”
