I don't know where to post it, let's say it's an off topic.

PS:
U.S. President Donald Trump offered to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange if he said that Russia had nothing to do with WikiLeaks' publication of Democratic Party emails in 2016,
I think that Wikileaks shouldn't reveal its information sources.

Assange was moved from solitary confinement in the medical wing to a different part of the prison with 40 other inmates.

Jailed Wikileaks founder Assange no longer in solitary, health improving :clap:
Jailed Wikileaks founder Assange no longer in solitary, health improving

February 18, 2020 - Jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is no longer being kept in solitary confinement and his health is improving, his spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson told reporters on Tuesday.

His supporters had expressed concern about the state of his health after he appeared confused during a court hearing in October, struggling to recall his age and name and saying he was unable to think properly.

“I saw him about 10 days ago — he has improved thanks to the pressure from his legal team, the general public, and amazingly, actually from other inmates in Belmarsh Prison to get him out of isolation,” Hrafnsson said ahead of an extradition hearing that starts next week.

Earlier, a group of doctors representing 117 physicians and psychologists from 18 nations called in a letter for an end to what they described as “the psychological torture and medical neglect of Julian Assange.”

His father, John Shipton, said Assange’s long confinement indoors had damaged his health and feared that sending his son to the US would be akin to a “death sentence.” “His situation is dire, he has had nine years of ceaseless psychological torture where false accusations are constantly being made,” he told reporters.

Julian Assange has never been anti-American, says John Shipton, father of WikiLeaks’ founder. In an interview with RTD, Shipton offers a look at Assange’s political views and formative years in an underground hacking community. He then goes on to explain where the idea behind WikiLeaks came from and how creating the whistleblowing site led to bombshell revelations. Julian’s father also weighs in on the Swedish rape allegations that trapped the journalist in the Ecuadorian Embassy for almost eight years, as well as claims that he had Russia ties.
