Julian Assange Arrested

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/11/world/europe/julian-assange-wikileaks-ecuador-embassy.html?emc=edit_na_20190411&nl=breaking-news&nlid=48279265ing-news&ref=headline


The WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2017 on the balcony of the Ecuadorean Embassy in London. The Ecuadorean government said this March that it had cut off his internet access.

Mr. Assange faces a British charge of skipping bail and is wanted in the United States on charges of releasing secret documents.

The Metropolitan Police said that Mr. Assange had been detained partly in connection with an ext...on warrant filed by the authorities in the United States, raising the possibility that Mr. Assange, 47, could be sent there for trial on charges related to the publication of the documents.

President Lenín Moreno o...on Twitter that his country had decided to stop sheltering Mr. Assange after “his repeated violations to international conventions and daily-life protocols,” a decision that cleared the way for the British authorities to detain him.

The relationship between Mr. Assange and Ecuador has been a rocky one, even as it offered him refuge and even citizenship, and WikiLeaks said last Friday that Ecuador “already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest” and predicted that Mr. Assange would be expelled from the embassy “within ‘hours to days.’ ”



hmmm Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

If calling some journalists "fake news" threatens journalism and freedom of the press, then what does prosecuting a journalist do for journalism and freedom of the press?

Ross Perot was right!!

If he broke the law, then it doesn't do a damn thing to journalism and freedom of the press, does it?

WHAT??? lol! The timing of it after the Mueller report. I think another wave is coming and investigations. It will all go down. End of this year and 2020. It all goes down.

FOOLISH. How did Assange get the docs? From the DNC! Not hacked through internet. It doesn't happen that way. Someone in fact was pissed and handed over docs.

Assange got them from hackers. We don't know who. He says they were not Russian. Assange can be arrogant but he has done great things like exposing the war and how corrupt Dems are

You make the erroneous assumption that I am saying he broke the law. I am not. In order to provide assistance, I will use more words to help your comprehension of the situation:

Whether or not he broke the law is yet to be determined and if it is determined that he did in fact break the law, the neither journalism nor freedom of speech has been harmed in any way.

Hope that helps.

I always have been and always will be on the side of whistleblowers, regardless of the political affiliation of those that are exposed.

Some people have to wait and see if it helps or hurts "their side" before making a judgement.

I actually think this is for the best. How awful it must be to be constantly looking over your shoulder and hididing. Instead of hiding he prossibly could have gone to court and settled things. My only concern is hoping he gets a fair trail in open court. We should all demand that.

I made no assumptions. I merely used your own "logic" against you. Read it all again. lol

They were trying to arrest him moments after the release of the Mueller investigation. Fact. You all remember that being reported!

I don't anything significant will come out of him being extradicted to the U.S. Especially not with this current Adminstration. Remember, trump said, "Wikileaks, I love wikileaks."

Remember this Obama Administration could have had Assange arrested and moved to USA at anytime. They wanted him moments after they got the Mueller report. Hmm this is from the top. Trump ordered this in my best estimation and probably due to Mueller report.

Fake news.

The fact is that the Ecudorian government turned over and the new leaders are much more friendly to the USA than the old ones were.

If Obama could have had Assange arrested, he would have.

If the reports of the police presence was fake news they certainly arrested him oh so soon after. All done and point to Mueller report was the trigger.

Wasn't it always rumored he would unleash more docs if arrested? Could have been bs on Assange end but he always threatened to have damaging docs on various politicians.

Funny how someone who loves wikileaks doesn't want to release the Mueller Report. Selective releasing, huh?
