If proven guilty, I should say he should be extradited.
What are your thoughts about this?

He didn't hack anybody. Manning did. What he did is called journalism. Ever heard of it?

To copy and paste is journalism now?

If you use it to hold the powerful to account for their mistakes, then yes. It is.

If a leak does happen this outcome is probably better for the US than the secrets being sold to an adversary secretly, which is probably the most likely alternative.
law is something separate from justice. If someone protects a minority in a racist country, he breaks the law. Yet, he follows a superior sense of justice. So did people like Assange and Snowden, who broke the law unveiling unjust actions made by their country.
The deep question can be: shall I always follow the law or shall I break it if it is against my deepest values?
No whistleblower who provides accurate information should ever be prosecuted!
The media scapegoating campaign is in full effect I see. Before you know it there will be reports that Assange was not just a rapist but also a pedophile, a fraud, an international arms trafficker and has bad breath. Anything to smear an individual that had the courage and the ability to speak out about major injustices. I am sure he is a flawed person like anyone else and I didn't particularly like the aid Assange seems to have given the Trump campaign but to claim he should be extradited for hacking crimes completely glosses over the specific context in which he committed these crimes and the great service he did for the International community in exposing dubious if not outright illegal and immoral acts by various Western states.

The great services he did have no relevance at this point.
