It appears that the military-worshiping drone-murder-in-chief Donald Trump wants to pardon some military personnel who are either accused or convicted of murdering innocent civilians.
Meanwhile, Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning, is being held in prison, as is Julian Assange, for their having revealed to the American people and to the world the various war crimes that the U.S. military had committed in Afghanistan and Iraq and other places where U.S. bureaucrats have no moral or constitutional authority to be, as well as revealing the diplomatic corruption of U.S. and other government officials.
An important, extensive new article details the Iraq War part of the WikiLeaks releases for which the U.S. and U.K. governments want to persecute the aforementioned truth-tellers.
So, the moral degenerate Trump believes that murderers of innocent people must get away with their crimes, but those who shine the light on them are to be tortured, imprisoned, and killed. (Trump being the authoritarian fascist was apparent for years, so no surprise there.)
