Assange was arrested in London on a US warrant over his alleged role in a massive leak of military and intelligence documents in 2010, according to the US Justice Department.
While the narrow charge against Assange of violating computer hacking laws was not widely in dispute, academics and advocacy groups were alarmed by the justice department's accusatory tone toward journalistic activities that include protecting the anonymity of sources and sharing government information and records in the public interest.
"Well I think the President always, as you in the media do, always welcomes information".
Judge Andrew Napolitano said WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, will be protected by the first amendment if he is brought to the U.S.
Ecuador accused WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of "putting feces" on the walls of the country's London embassy during his asylum there. In 2018, CPJ published a blog arguing that conspiracy charges against Assange could set a risky precedent.
"The extradition of Julian Assange to the US for exposing evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan should be opposed by the British government, "tweeted Jeremy Corbyn, the opposition party's leader". And we can hope that turns out to be good news. After being dragged away by police in handcuffs, it was later revealed by Scotland Yard that he had been arrested on behalf of the U.S.
It's also likely to trigger a debate over press freedom and call attention to unresolved questions about Assange's role in the release of stolen Democratic emails leading up to the 2016 presidential election, part of special counsel Robert Mueller's recently concluded investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Suppose a source says she has information on huge government abuses and could get proof of more if she can guess one password. Julian Assange is not being pursued to protect US national security.
Foreign Minister José Valencia and Interior Minister María Paula Romo accused Assange of riding scooters around the cramped embassy hallways, insulting staff and smearing feces on the walls. But the line there is a little too close for comfort for me, and many others.
Assange is accused of working with Chelsea Manning, then a U.S. army intelligence analyst, to break into the defense department network in March 2010 to obtain classified documents.
Assange was finally questioned for two days in November 2016, after a change in tactics from Swedish authorities who had previously argued that he had to travel to Sweden to be interviewed.
The indictment does not explicitly charge Assange for publication, a move that would have wide-ranging press freedom implications, but it does construe his interactions with Manning as part of a criminal conspiracy.
Two members of Raniere's inner circle have pleaded guilty, while Mack and two other co-defendants are seeking separate trials. Along with Raniere, Seagram's heiress Clare Bronfman still faces racketeering charges related ot the operation of NXIVM.
In a tweet , WikiLeaks claims it has been told by two senior Ecuadorian officials that Mr Assange is to be expelled imminently. Sweden dropped the charges against Assange late 2017, and the Australian became and Ecuadorean citizen in December that year.

Musicians including Pharell Williams and Aerosmith have also complained about Trump using their music for political purposes. The president's tweet, indistinguishable from a Reddit bro's, said "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!" followed by the sizzle reel.
