WikiLeaks Founder Charged in Computer Hacking Conspiracy

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.  He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison if convicted.  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.

Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger for the Eastern District of Virginia and Assistant Director in Charge Nancy McNamara 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.
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.

This article has the full timeline of events since Assange's arrest yesterday.

Quote:LONDON (AP) — The Latest on the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London (all times local):

5 a.m.
Friends of a Swedish software developer arrested in Ecuador as part of a probe into Julian Assange’s alleged efforts to stave off his eviction from the country’s embassy are describing him as a soft-spoken geek being unfairly accused of plotting to destabilize the government.

A senior Ecuadorian official said Ola Bini was arrested Thursday at Quito’s airport as he was preparing to board a flight for Japan. Authorities haven’t presented any charges against Bini but the official said they are looking into whether he was part of a possible effort by Assange and Wikileaks to blackmail President Lenin Moreno.

Vijay Prashad runs a Marxist publishing house based in India and considers himself a close friend of Bini. He said Bini is “the last person who would ever be involved in an attempt overthrow a government.”

Prashad said he last saw Bini a few months ago in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He said he didn’t know if Bini had any links to Wikileaks or Assange, adding that his work as a privacy advocate are being unfairly equated by the Ecuadorians with criminal activity.
The arrest came after British police dragged Assange out of Ecuador’s embassy when his seven-year asylum was revoked.

4:30 a.m.
Foreign Minister Marise Payne says Australia remains “completely opposed” to the death penalty amid fears that Australian native Julian Assange could be exposed to such punishment if he is extradited to the United States.
Australian consular officials plan to visit the WikiLeaks founder in a London jail on Friday a day after he was arrested at the Ecuadorian Embassy where he’d been holed up nearly seven years. For now, he faces a single computer conspiracy charge in the U.S. that does not carry the death penalty, but his supporters fear more serious charges may be brought later.
Payne said Friday the U.K. had sought assurances from the U.S. that Assange would not be exposed to the death penalty.
Assange plans to fight extradition, but Australian leaders have indicated they wouldn’t intervene.
___
2:30 a.m.
A senior Ecuadorian official says a Swedish software developer living in Quito and who is allegedly close to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested as authorities attempt to dismantle a blackmail ring that in recent days had threatened to retaliate against President Lenin Moreno.

The official said Ola Bini was arrested Thursday at Quito’s airport as he was preparing to board a flight for Japan.
The official spoke on the condition of anonymity and didn’t provide any additional details about Bini.
On a blog, a Swedish man by the same name describes himself as a software developer working in Quito for the Center for Digital Autonomy, a group based in Ecuador and Spain focused on privacy, security and cryptography issues. It makes no mention of any affiliation with Wikileaks.

On Twitter earlier Thursday, Bini called claims by the Interior Minister that Russian hackers and someone close to Wikileaks were working inside Ecuador “very worrisome” news. “This seems like a witch hunt to me,” Bini wrote. 
The arrest came after British police dragged Assange out of Ecuador’s embassy when his seven-year asylum was revoked.

Hillary Clinton says newly arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange needs to “answer for what he has done.”

I hope they keep him safe from the wicked witch of the world, Killary. I'm sure she wants him to answer for what he's done before he spills even more of her crimes with the evidence.

The wrong reasons?  I'm picking up a little bit of MSM brainwashing here. 
Assange was/is a news reporter. He reported what was brought to him by highly credible sources. He was nominated for the peace prize every year since 2010 for his reports.  He let the world see the corruption and lies about wars going on at that time, he revealed Hillary's corruption in the 2016 election, which I feel was a great service to the U.S.  Without that release I think the U.S. would be in a different place right now. Without his reports and the Vault 7 release, the world would still be asleep regarding highly important issues that affect our daily lives.
I won't go on and on about Assange, but he has done a big favor for the world. If he is harmed by the U.S. government, I promise you President Trump will lose a large part of his base. We love Julian here.
I think he is a "part of the plan" to take down the rest of the deep state.  He had to be arrested so he could be extradited to the U.S.
Once that occurs, all the "discovery" that comes out in his trial will lead the way to investigate and prosecute more swamp creatures.
I think President Trump will exonerate him if he shares what he knows.  I could be wrong, but Q has hinted "we have the source" when speaking about Assange in Q posts. Q has never said anything negative regarding Assange, so I'm trusting he is a part of "the plan". 
Snowden, on the other hand...   tinysure


Just look at this face. Does that look like a worried man to you?  I think he's signaling to someone "in the know".

From what I'm reading, he is charged with helping C. Manning to hack into a government computer by getting the password.  The full sentence carries a 5 year term in prison, but the full term is hardly ever given. As long as he has been held already, I think he will get off for what he gives us, or a very low prison stay here in the U.S.

I hope I'm right.

I believe this man has narcissistic personality disorder, in other words every thing he did was for him and not for the best of others


Quote:Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

Your source is from the Mayo Clinic?  They have plenty of their own deep state plants there, but I'm sure they have good people too. Not saying Julian is not a narcissist, but you have to wonder why he cared so much about Seth Rich being murdered (his source), enough to offer a large $ reward for information on his killer if he has no empathy? 

I'm curious where you got your information that he is a Narcissist?  Could it be a smear campaign on him, just like "they're" doing on President Trump and Q?

He and President Trump should get along quite well, wouldn't you say?   tinylaughing

Styx says it so much better than I did.   tinylaughing   I agree with all he said except the part about QAnon. Although Q never said he would be safe, so if he isn't, it's not like Q lied. It's just that certain things shared in the Q posts have led us to believe he is a valuable asset. President Trump won't allow harsh treatment to our assets.

Came across this chat log between Julian Assange and C. Manning, if anyone is interested.

With the UK Parliament on a two-week holiday -hence the 12th April deadline that they failed to
adhere to regarding leaving the EU, the MSM are speculating on what might be done with
Julian Assange.

That's the guy who supposedly leaked the documents known as Wikileaks that only CNN
journalists are allowed to read, yer know... genuine news producers!!

Julian Assange 'must face Swedish justice' if country asks, say MPs.

It's just a letter from the Labour Party siding with Assange and surprisingly, the BBC article gets
close to what the accusations are really about. Of course, it won't mention the STD -which is the
crux of the complaint nor will tell it's readers about the $4.2 billion loan Ecuador acquired from
the IMF recently.

Quote:'...Assange sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over
allegations of sexual assault, which he has denied.

At the time, the Australian-born 47-year-old said he had had entirely consensual sex with two women
while on a trip to Stockholm, and that the Swedish claims against him were part of a smear campaign...'

There really is a much bigger picture than just his arrest.
