|Ecuador embassy in London has confirmed that it temporarily cut off Internet access to the founder of WikiLeaks over fears that Assange was using the Internet to interfere in the US presidential election.
This decision was taken after the publication of leaked emails by the whistleblowing site, including some from the DNC and a cache of emails from the account of Hillary Clinton campaign adviser. At the same time, Ecuador’s statement reaffirmed the asylum granted to Julian Assange and reiterated its intention to safeguard his life and physical integrity.
When Assange went offline a few days ago, it was not clear who was responsible, but a tweet from the website’s official account claimed that it had been “intentionally severed” by a “state party”.
In the meantime, it is unknown who perpetrated the hacks that brought the emails to the whistleblowing service, which claims not to do or encourage any hacking itself. However, the US cybersecurity experts have linked the hack to the Russian government, alleging that Russia was using both hackers and Assange to help rig the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump.
WikiLeaks released 3 transcripts of Clinton’s paid Goldman Sachs speeches showing how she bantered with the bank’s executives. The transcripts are likely to fuel fears among liberal Democrats that Clinton is too cosy with Wall Street. The whistleblowing service also helped release an explosive set of documents leaked by US army private Chelsea Manning, including a video showing a US air crew killing Iraqi civilians.
Julian Assange is currently wanted for questioning in Sweden over an allegation of rape in August 2010, which he denies, and has been confined to the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the last 4 years, when he sought and was granted asylum. Assange fears he could be transferred to the United States to face potential espionage charges arising from WikiLeaks’ whistleblowing activities. Swedish prosecutors were supposed to question Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy a few days ago, but Ecuador’s attorney general claimed the long-awaited questioning would be delayed to ensure that WikiLeaks’ founder’s legal team could attend. The questioning will be conducted by an Ecuadorian prosecutor reading from the list compiled by the Swedish chief prosecutor and a police investigator.

|"the US cybersecurity experts". Now there is a group that I would not trust as far as I could throw them! And they have linked the hack to the Russian Government? How about looking at the contents of the "hack" instead of diverting attention. They haven't dumded down the whole world, yet!|
|I'd trust anything the NSA dsyd more than Putin, alleged rapist Assange and Trump (the trifecta of evil). They just want Hillary to lose so Russia can continue their conquest of eastern Europe without interference from NATO. Not going to happen. Wikileaks lost all credibility when they decided to be partisan this election. Where's the hack on Trumps emails? I hope Ecuador throws Assange out and he rots in a CIA black site.|

|I would not trust either of the US candidates. The US is governed by oligarchy, not democracy.|
|@b2ux She was a lawyer- a lawyer's job is to defend their client, no matter what they have done. Under our constitution every one has a right to a lawyer even child molesters, and Hillary was just doing her JOB. She's worked all her life, wasn't born on 3rd bsdr like Drumpf just walked into teenage beauty pageant dressing rooms. He's the pedophile. Pointy is Assange is not a US citizen; he needs to butt out of our election. He doesn't understand "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." Hillary is going to win and she will get him. Wikileaks is done. They just don't know it yet.|
|Remember people, US Presidents are SELECTED not ELECTED and NATO is just a FRONT, the same way all illegal organizations have!|
|What a strange world we live in, People now more concerned with where the information comes from and how it was obtained (On pirate sites too) than the contents, so what if it points the finger at Clinton etc? Or is it ok because its Clinton etc? If so its because you have been told who is ok and who is not, (election by media) Truth is truth is it not?.. Be very careful what you wish for.|

|Only social media/internet has allowed such a smoke screen between the two looney parties. We now have no choice but to choose between to idiots who have enough money not to care about America or if they win.|
|Trump has my vote 100% period, Hillary is a criminal, liar, theif, and many more things. To the comment above. It show her morals getting a child rapist off and then laughing about it client or not. To defend that shows your character through as well. Dont bother replying as I have nothing further to discuss the likes of you.|

|The debates seemed more about two people bashing each other rather than talking about real issues. Their personal lives are their own!|
|it does matter, u been around as long as me ud know it. ill take Trump over that bought and payed for bag of ^&(^ any day .. shes already showed you how she sees things. look at the mid east ,lol 6 months and she destroyed it. anything that was beneficial to us is gone ,in its place our enemies.. At least trump knows how to run Business,the US gov is just that .. if u cant differentiate between her and him as far as running our affairs then you shouldnt vote pls|
|The "professional" politickers have been doing it for long time. When Obama ran against McCain change,change. 8 years later I cant tell the 2 apart.|
Has Trump ever held public office?
He cant do any worse than the rest of the "pro's"
|she was a lawyer so defending the scum was her job, BUT years latee during an interview she bragged amd laughed It was no longer her job and she chose to bring up the case. Obviously the leaks aren't fake otheriwse the Us woyld have no case or reason for extradition. You all do realize both parties want to take us and sites like this down. Hackitvists work to protect freedoms like this. free Assange|

|Good Lord....did you reprint this "propaganda" verbatum from CNN ???|
It has already been proven that the Ecuador officials had nothing to do with Assange being stopped. But the "outside sources" were responsible.
And the Project Veritas videos about vote rigging and hiring goons to riot at TRUMP rallies, where even police were injured, are far more damning to hitlery anyway.
Even if hitlery can steal the election through voting fraud, she's going to be removed from office before she even has a chance to get sworn in. And her next 4 years will be in a prison cell.
