WikiLeaks Founder Arrested in London, Charged in Computer Hacking Conspiracy

Alexandria, VA...Julian P. Assange, 47, the founder of WikiLeaks, was arrested today in the United Kingdom pursuant to the U.S./UK Extradition Treaty, in connection with a federal charge of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to break a password to a classified U.S. government computer. According to court documents unsealed today, the charge relates to Assange’s alleged role in one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the United States.





The indictment alleges that in March 2010, Assange engaged in a conspiracy with Chelsea Manning, a former intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army, to assist Manning in cracking a password stored on U.S. Department of Defense computers connected to the Secret Internet Protocol Network (SIPRNet), a U.S. government network used for classified documents and communications. Manning, who had access to the computers in connection with her duties as an intelligence analyst, was using the computers to download classified records to transmit to WikiLeaks. Cracking the password would have allowed Manning to log on to the computers under a username that did not belong to her. Such a deceptive measure would have made it more difficult for investigators to determine the source of the illegal disclosures.

During the conspiracy, Manning and Assange engaged in real-time discussions regarding Manning’s transmission of classified records to Assange. The discussions also reflect Assange actively encouraging Manning to provide more information. During an exchange, Manning told Assange that “after this upload, that’s all I really have got left.” To which Assange replied, “curious eyes never run dry in my experience.”

Assange is charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion and is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, John C. Demers, Assistant Attorney General for National Security, and Nancy McNamara, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, made the announcement after the charges were unsealed. First Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Doherty-McCormick, Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kellen S. Dwyer, Thomas W. Traxler and Gordon D. Kromberg, and Trial Attorneys Matthew R. Walczewski and Nicholas O. Hunter of the Justice Department’s National Security Division are prosecuting the case.

The extradition will be handled by the Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs.

A copy of this press release is located on the website of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia. Related court documents and information are located on the website of the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia or on PACER by searching for Case No. 1:18-cr-111.

An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent until and unless proven guilty in court.

          tRump denies anything about Wikileaks, after he said 1n 2016 "I love Wikileaks".

          Rodger Stone working for tRump met with Assange in 2016.

          Just more lies from tRump, why some forget all the daily lies, claiming deep state, and fake news shows they either have amnesia, or selective memory.

          All the known facts show collusion with Russia, this is but one.

          We know most of it already, the collusion is right out in the open- the metings with the Russians in the WH and tRump tower, The Stone meeting with Assange, and Assange in contact with the Russians.

          The cons will just forget , deny this this first tRump denied it, then he admitted it, all part of the gas lighting he has used. The sad part is so many don't realize he's playing you. Sad.

              BS the election was stolen:
              10 million legal voters purged using Interstate Crosscheck, voter ID, and other purge lists targeting democratic voters, also broken /hacked voting machines in minority precincts. All documented facts.

              Clinton won the popular vote by 3-6 Million, yet with the electoral college, tRump was said to win, which as illegitimate, as it the SCOTUS.

              bush also lost according to 3 in dependent audits of the 2000 election.
              In 2004 there was the server switch from Oh to Ky. Kerry was ahead, After the server switch, a miracle , bush ahead, another stolen election.

              The only way the Repubs "win " is by theft, fraud. 2016 another stolen election.

              What are the results?

              9-11
              Iraq /Afghanistan wars
              Subprime recession.

              What will the Repubs do to America in the last 2 years?
              Our Democracy is under extreme stress due to the autocrat tRump orders.
              The 8,000 lies, and constant gas lighting.
              America is on it's way to a fascist state with the Republicans ignoring all the attacks on law and the Constitution.

              Wake Up!

            BTW, Trump has personally commended me on my conserving fossil fuels etc by utilizing all the wood from our fallen peach tree that has been cut up into BBQ grill sized pieces. All it takes is to roll up my shirtsleeves and a liitle blood (I always knick myself), sweat, and tears-which I imagine some of your Dem/libtards don't know anything about that. You're all too busy wrapped up with your little "weed" parties or whatever the H you do with your idle time besides not working! Oh that's right that REAL NAZI LOVER George Soros is supporting all you pot smoking AntiFa folks! So please stay away from my wood shed and get your own wood!
