“The View” co-hosts weigh in on charges made against the WikiLeaks founder in the wake of his arrest Thursday morning.
MEGHAN MCCAIN: The politics of this have always been completely hypocritical on both sides. Eric Holder under Obama decided against prosecution of Assange over concerns that WikiLeaks was a “journalistic organization that would raise First Amendment Issues.” Chelsea Manning was granted clemency. Chelsea Manning in 2010 released 750,000 classified and sensitive military documents that put our national security at risk. Under the Obama administration, she was given clemency. This is something that a lot of people who put national security first — I put myself in this category — have been warning about, and warning about, and warning about. The only time the Democrats started caring was when it started affecting them politically, and Hillary Clinton’s emails were released and John Podesta’s emails were released.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: What is going to happen to him? That’s my question.
MCCAIN: I hope he rots in Hell!
