Sweden has dropped their investigation of Assange for two (weak) rape assertions, but the U.S. government is stepping up its plans to prosecute him for espionage.  A new book about him sounds worth a read.
Quote :
The Secret Life is timely now, as WikiLeaks and Assange — essentially one and the same thing — are prominent in the headlines. This week, Assange tweeted support of an alleged NSA whistleblower who leaked documents to the Intercept. And Assange himself could be charged by the US government for publishing leaked documents.

And then there are the sexual assault charges that Assange has been facing since 2010: Sweden recently announced that it is dropping its investigation. “I can conclude, based on the evidence, that probable cause for this crime still exists,” Marianne Ny, the lead prosecutor in Sweden, told reporters. But because Assange has refused to cooperate with the investigation for seven years — and continues to hide in the Ecuadorian Embassy — they can’t continue investigating.

Well now, after SIX YEARS of living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, Ecuador is talking about allowing Assange to be extradicted.

Although the bogus rape charges were dismissed in absentia Assange still faces Swedish charges for skipping bail.

And of course, if London wants to curry favor with Washington, they'll turn him over to the Republicans so Assange can take all the heat in Mueller's Russia probe.  Instant villain!

But wait.  If they admit that Wikileaks published classified documents and e-mails stolen by the Russians, won't that be admitting that the Russians stole documents????  Hmmm.   This could get interesting. The alternate facts narrative is about to collide with reality.

That is an interesting Catch 22 for them.
