Julian Assange has agreed to be extradited to the US if the US releases Chelsea Manning.
Manning was arrested for leaking sensitive military documents to Assange and is currently in military detention.
Manning has been claimed to be on Obama's shortlist for commutation.
It is a savvy move for Assange given his current popularity with the incoming Trump team. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy ever since the US requested the UK to extradite him.
