No. The "funny" part will be if he surrenders to the Brits, who hand him over to the USG rather than Sweden. Thus proving the rape allegations were a farce, a mere pretext to get him arrested and extradited to the United States.

Maybe you missed it the first time: there is no US extradition request for Julian Assange.

Your Assange fanfic could be a little more believable. Keep working on it.

and the vagina "pops out" becoming the penis

Listen, I'm not a meteorologist or anything, but I'm pretty sure that a penis is not an inside-out vagina. I'm pretty sure it's more analogous to the clitoris, and that the little seam that runs down the nutsack and taint (excuse the medical terminology) is the result of the labia closing and sealing.

Are you aware that what you stated is false?

After reading all the replies, yep, I sure am.

Go (back?) to law school and re-read (or perhaps read for the first time?) the material on what can and cannot be subject to a presidential pardon.

No thanks. Not only am I not an attorney, but I don't have any desire to be one. I was responding to this quote:

"I can't pardon somebody who hasn't gone before a court and presented themselves, so that's not something that I would comment on at this point," Obama told the German newspaper Der Spiegel.

I interpreted that as meaning that he was not able to do that, rather than just being unwilling.

Some more quotes:

"At the point at which Mr. Snowden wants to present himself before the legal authorities and make his arguments or have his lawyers make his arguments, then I think those issues come into play," Obama said.

More than a million supporters of Edward Snowden have petitioned President Barack Obama to pardon him, but the former National Security Agency contractor hasn't submitted the required documents for clemency, according to the White House.

"Mr. Snowden has not filed paperwork to seek clemency from this administration," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said on Tuesday.

"Earlier this month, WikiLeaks said it would agree to a US extradition request for the site's founder, Julian Assange, if Obama granted clemency to Manning. It was not immediately clear if WikiLeaks would make good on its promise."

The funny part is that there has been no US extradition request for Julian Assange. So basically, he didn't offer anything. It was just a way to keep his name in the news.

Snowden cannot be pardoned, because he has not been convicted of any crime. There is no conviction to pardon or commute. He has to surrender and be charged in order for that to happen. Obama already commented on that, he said that regardless of how he feels about Snowden, you can't pardon someone who hasn't been convicted of anything.
