Will Amal Clooney Suggest Maria Ressa’s Appointment As White House Press Secretary To Avoid Jail?

LONDON, The United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Did you know that Amal Clooney was, at one point, lawyering for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange?  Yes, that same more deserving Julian Assange whom Maria Ressa deprived of the Nobel Peace Prize!

Back in 2013, Amal suggested Assange could be made Ecuador’s technology minister, giving him diplomatic immunity, according to documents seen by the Daily Mail.

Amal reportedly wrote: “It may be legally possible for Assange to be appointed to an Ecuadorian ministerial or diplomatic post.”

This could give him immunity from arrest and right of passage out of the UK.”

At the time, Assange was holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after claiming political asylum since 2012.

Fast forward to 2022. Will Clooney also suggest that her “client” Ressa be appointed White House Press Secretary to obtain immunity from arrest over her cyber libel conviction and other criminal charges in the Philippines?

EXCLUSIVE: Maria Ressa’s One Wish Before She Rots In Jail

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She’s been named ”Sexiest Woman Alive,” ”Person of the Year.” “Nobel Peace Prize Winner,” among the dozens of other insignificant awards and honors she received in the Philippines and abroad.

So, at this stage of her colorful career, what is Rappler CEO Maria Ressa’s remaining wish before she begins jail time for her cyber libel conviction as recently affirmed by her country’s Court of Appeals?

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Ressa intimated her one last wish before becoming a jail inmate: the Pulitzer Prize.

She hopes to bag this prestigious writing award with the upcoming release of a new book she just wrote, titled “How To Stand Up To A Dictator.”

Ressa said it doesn’t matter whether the book sells or not, as long as she clinches the award she’s been dreaming about.
