Rumors are flying across social media that President Donald Trump will be pardoning WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
The rumors appear to have been started by Pastor Mark Burns, who tweeted it as breaking news.
The tweet gained over 46,000 “likes” in less than an hour, a testament to the wide support for a pardon.

National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden weighed in on the news saying that “I very much hope this is true. The case against Assange is based on a legal theory that would criminalize the work of every journalist, both at home and abroad.”

Snowden has previously lobbied for a pardon for Assange, even before one for himself.
“Mr. President, if you grant only one act of clemency during your time in office, please: free Julian Assange. You alone can save his life,” Snowden tweeted earlier this month.
Even if the story turns out to have been fake, perhaps President Trump will see how happy the news made his base, and even a large portion of the left, and make it happen.
