Assange hit with new charges for violating Espionage Act

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday was slapped with new criminal charges of allegedly violating the Espionage Act by conspiring with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, the US DOJ announced. The feds allege in the 18-count superseding indictment that Assange had worked with Manning since 2009 to publish the classified information with the intent to harm the US.

Free Assange. He acted as a publisher, he didn't do anything wrong. He's suffered enough being in the embassy for years.

Killary will find a way to make him look like a suicide. There is NO WAY she’s going to let him testify.

poor julian :( be a hero to the 99% and suffer with severe revenge by the 1%. journalism & the 1st amendment is on life support... Then again the U.S. Gov has assassinated or imprisoned nearly everyone who opposes the corruption and evils of the ruling class 1%ers. MLK Jr? Murdered. Black Panthers? Murdered or Imprisoned. Malcolm X? Murdered. JFK? Murdered. RFK? Murdered. Water Protectors? Violently resisted & imprisoned. Wounded permanently. Hospitalized. ANTIFA? Imprisoned leaders. Murdered. (surprised no one reports on the mysterious deaths of so many in leadership) Occupy Wallstreet? Destroyed from the inside. Too pathetic to matter. Easily defeated by preventing power. No need for murder. Bernie 2016? Rigged into obsolescence. If Anti-War-Machine Tulsi became POTUS? They'd just murder her too, likely before she even won. When Bernie runs for POTUS? Better be careful, the U.S. government won't like you winning the primary and won't like you becoming POTUS. Plz be careful. Hire extra security. Monitor yourself 24/7. VP needs to be Tulsi so they fear her more than you Bernie. 1%er owned U.S. Gov / War Machine is incredibly violent towards the 99% it is suppose to represent and protect. Surprised they didnt just murder Assange years ago, but I guess they didn't need to bc they can imprison him as an example that the 1st amendment is dead. scare all other journalists. "If you report the truth like you're suppose to, we will imprison or kill you."

Disgusting. It should be the CNN and Fox bosses charged with crimes for lying to the public, covering up war crimes, and being propaganda mouthpieces.

I wonder if "journalists" in the US will actually fight for press freedom. Particularly looking in the direction of "democracy dies in darkness" crowd.

It'll be many years before a verdict is given in a court room. They just want him out of the wild, where he can't influence wikileaks' activity.
