Julian Assange arrested

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested on a 7-year-old warrant early Thursday at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, and is currently being held in a police station.

“Julian Assange, 47, has today, Thursday 11 April, been arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) at the Embassy of Ecuador, Hans Crescent, SW1 on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. “He has been taken into custody at a central London police station where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster Magistrates’ Court as soon as is possible.”

    ‘In other news, AG Barr announced he will begin an investigation of possible spying on the Trump 2016 campaign by the FBI.’

    Hmmm.

    Wonder if there’s a connection?

    I smell a very strong CIA/FBI/NSA/DemoClintonObama stench!

    I hope Assange has a chance to speak,may get the truth(?) about Seth Rich.

    I will say if he has a “accident”hope there are dead man switches and millions hackers let loose.

    At moment only faces one charge of conspiracy to hack.

    The embassy instead of kicking him out let authorities in to arrest him,so much for embassy asylum!

    He needs to let the powers-that-be know “If anything untoward happens to me, there will be a core dump of every document I’ve got”.

      Which, of course, would serve to entice all sorts of people to kill him. It’s never a good idea to put a bounty on your own head.

  6. Don in Oregon says:

    “The Metropolitan Police had a warrant for Assange’s arrest … and were invited into the Ecuadorian Embassy by Ambassador Carlos Abad Ortiz after the Ecuadorian government withdrew the WikiLeaks founder’s asylum status.”

      Time to start checking the bank accounts of the ambassador and his associates.

    Is Arkancide on the Horizon for Julian?

  8. The Jannie says:

    He allegedly released private emails from the Ecuadorean president and his missus. Talk about shitting on your own doorstep!

  9. Djamer says:

    Did you all here what he was saying? Resist!

  10. Sanders says:

    His mistake was crapping on his hosts. So they booted his happy ass out.

  11. Bad_Brad says:

    Ironic they arrest him the day after AG Barr announces he’s investigating the deep state for spying on Trump. There are no coincidences. If nothing else they’ve changed the news cycle. Trump should get some hand picked Justice Department people and hide Julian. Really well.

    It was going to happen and was a matter of time until the squeeze was enough; though disappointing regardless of when it was to happen.

    Free Julian Assange!

    I have some sodium pentathol that wants to his leetle friend.

  15. Sigproshooter says:

    I’ll bet he develops a very malignant, fast moving cancer soon. Seems to happen in situations like this. It’ll be reported a couple of days, he’ll pass, and the world will forget him. And the DS will be safer and stronger. Just a theory. I hope not, personally hoping he burns the fucking house down. But I’m not holding my breath.

      GMTA. I wrote elsewhere:

      <

      blockquote>I can visualize the story now:

      “Sadly, it was discovered too late that Assange had developed severe diabetes. Because of his self-imposed internal exile (remember, he was free to walk out of the Ecuadoran Embassy any time he wanted) his diabetes was untreated for years. The stress of his leaving the embassy pushed his system into diabetic ketoacidosis. Severe electrolyte imbalance led to fatal cardiac dysrythmia, and he died in the early hours of the night.”

    Wonder what the Vegas odds are on him surviving long enough to stand trial/testify. He know a LOT about a LOT of people. I have little doubt the Clinton Crime Cabal has a contract out on him already.

    Fellow seems to have moved to the top of the Dead Pool.

Play nice.
