Looks like the indictment is conspiracy with Manning. Manning was pardoned[1] by the Obama admin. Does that have any bearing on Assange’s case?

[1] I’ve been corrected; her sentence was commuted.

Obama commuted the sentence. Pardon would have wiped the charges. Commuting just shortened the penalty.

Even had Manning been pardoned it would have no bearing whatsoever.

the real question is, will his sentence be less, equal, or more?
