Former president made the remarks during an interview with Tim Pool over the weekend.

Former President Donald Trump said he’s giving “very serious consideration” to pardoning WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and prosecuting Dr. Anthony Fauci if elected for a second term in November.

“We’re going to give it very serious consideration,” Trump said of an Assange pardon in an interview with Tim Pool over the weekend preceding his speech at the Libertarian National Convention.

Assange is facing 18 charges related to espionage and classified documents through WikiLeaks in 2010 and is set to be extradited to the U.S. from Belmarsh prison in London.

If he’s extradited he’ll likely spend life in prison at the infamous ADX Florence supermax prison in Colorado.

Alex Jones last month claimed that Trump pardoning Assange would secure political victory over Biden because the embattled WikiLeaks founder’s 14-year-long legal drama represents a major assault on the First Amendment and journalism.

Pool also asked Trump if Fauci will be held accountable “for the lying to Congress” and if he intends to appoint an Attorney General who will prosecute Fauci.

“Yeah, and we’ll take a look at statute of limitations, because you know, the statute of limitations are quite long,” Trump said in the interview. “We’ll be taking a look at that very seriously.”

Trump went on to downplay Fauci’s role in his White House Covid response and claimed Joe Biden has empowered him much more since taking office.

“Fauci wasn’t a big player in my administration like he was after I left,” Trump said in the interview. “I mean, Biden made him the king of everything.”

Fauci testified to Congress that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was never involved in gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

But NIH principal deputy director Lawrence Tabak testified earlier this month that US taxpayers did fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in the months and years before the COVID-19 pandemic.
