Julian Assange Expects The United States to Charge Him With Espionage (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 17th 2010 6:50PM
Appearing on 'Today' (weekdays 7 AM ET NBC) WikiLeaks President Julian Assange told Matt Lauer that he believes "there is something like an espionage indictment being made secretly against me in the United States."

Lauer then suggested the indictment may be related to allegations that Assange didn't just receive stolen information from Bradley Manning -- the American soldier who has been arrested for passing on classified material to WikiLeaks -- but that Assange also gave Manning software which aided in his theft.

"I have no information about what you are referring to. We don't know what the grounds of that investigation is. In fact, like the Swedish investigation (for sexual assault of two women), the whole damn thing is kept secret."

Hearing Assange complain about being kept in the dark must surely have amused the world leaders and government officials whose secrets Assange has brought into the light.
