Assange arrested What will WikiLeaks do

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested by British police inside the Ecuadorean embassy. Reports indicate law enforcement was invited into the embassy after Assange’s asylum status was revoked by the Ecuadorean government.

The free press organization infamous for leaking sensitive documents about governments around the world claim the revocation of his asylum status breaks international law.

Assange has been holed up in the embassy since 2012 and despite a handful of complaints about strange habits and lack of personal hygiene, the relationship has been strong. That changed recently when Ecuador accused him of leaking information about President Lenin Moreno’s personal life. Both WikiLeaks and Assange deny involvement with the relevant leak.

Opinion

Whether you believe Assange is a hero or a threat, one should consider this a step towards finding the truth. After all, he’s wanted by both the Swedish and American governments for various crimes. The Swedish crime in particular is interesting because it’s for sexual assault and has nothing to do with his activities at WikiLeaks.

The Trump administration has actively pursued Assange, though many may not have heard about it because doing so breaks with the leftist narrative that his campaign worked with the Russians and WikiLeak proxies during the 2016 election.

Now, the question is what will WikiLeaks do in response. Will they go after the Brits? The Ecuadorians? The Trump administration? Do they have something up their sleeve already? So far, there haven’t been any threats leveled via Twitter. Instead, it seems like they’re using this as a fundraising opportunity.

Quote

“Every time we witness an injustice and do not act, we train our character to be passive in its presence and thereby eventually lose all ability to defend ourselves and those we love. In a modern economy it is impossible to seal oneself off from injustice.” – Julian Assange

Final Thoughts

If WikiLeaks has been holding anything back as a contingency, now is the time when that contingency will be used. Then again, they’ve never been shy about sharing, so it’s possible there’s nothing left for them to leak at the moment.

Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
