(ConservativeUnit.com)- Remember Pamela Anderson? She’s the Baywatch babe who in recent years has developed a friendship with Julian Assange. This week, she posted photographs of herself wearing a bikini, urging President Donald Trump to pardon the activist and publisher who founded the controversial WikiLeaks website in 2006.
Anderson tweeted the photograph on Monday, with one sign reading “I Am Julian Assange” and another reading, “Bring Julian Assange Home Australia.”
Assange is currently fighting extradition to the United States over charges of espionage. Should be ultimately be extradited, he could face a maximum prison sentence of 175 years…meaning he would never see the light of day again.

“@POTUS please #pardonjulianassange,” she wrote.
Anderson has been known for defending Assange for several years and was even photographed paying him a visit when he was living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Assange was eventually kicked out of the embassy in April 2019, but Anderson continued to visit him in prison.
Rumors have even circulated that the pair are dating, though exactly how a relationship would work under these circumstances remains unclear.
Anderson also retweeted a New York Post about her plea, with the title, “Pam Anderson lobbies Donald Trump to free Julian Assange,” in case the world didn’t get the message.

Anderson’s call for Assange to be pardoned comes after the president used his power to pardon his former National Security Adviser, retired General Michael Flynn, who became a target during the Russiagate hoax. Flynn initially pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI under a plea deal, though later withdrew his plea after evidence came to light that FBI agents were trying to set him up under a plot devised by the Democrats to smear the Trump campaign.
Whether the president makes the drastic decision, however, remains unclear. As it stands, the president is still fighting for his political life, with lawsuits challenging the results of the election based on evidence of widespread election fraud.
If the president fails, he faces a fresh battle to take back the White House in 2024, pardoning Assange could cause him trouble with many Republican voters.
Perhaps this is something Anderson would be wise to pick up again at the end of the president’s second term…whenever that will be.
