Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks and the ever-constant thorn in Hillary’s campaign, is alive and well, but he is not out of the woods.
Last week, there were suspected threats to Julian Assange’s life, and then all of a sudden his Internet was cut off.
Julian has never been charged with a crime, but yet he must remain inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London or he will be arrested and extradited to the United States.
Freedom eludes the elusive whistleblower, but now he is losing his ability to connect to the outside world.
The Embassy has cut off the use of his Internet and it will remain off until the election is over in the United States.
With Assange offline, the largest mouthpiece for the organization of WikiLeaks is gone. The greatest asset for marketing has been silenced. Assange knows his stuff and has been and investigative journalist and whistleblower for a decade.
He has a large following, and announces all the major leaks, but without him promoting the new releases, then it is up to the press in America to uncover all the truths in the almost daily releases.
The Editorial Board for WikiLeaks responded with a message that seemed to really exclude Ecuador from any blame in this matter. After all, Ecuador is the county that has given Assange asylum and is protecting him. They have housed Assange for over four years.
The statement is more of a plea for Assange’s freedom by announcing his innocence.

There is no doubt that Assange is being targeted because of his releases and if Clinton wins the White House, then he might really be in danger.
Do you think Assange is a hero or a criminal? Let us know in the comments below.
