US politicians demand Assange trial on espionage charge 09 Dec 2010 The likelihood of the founder of WikiLeaks facing possible extradition to the US has strengthened with a number of senior American politicians declaring that he has breached the Espionage Act. Supporters of Julian Assange say they fear that his extradition to Sweden for alleged sex crimes will pave the way for a future appearance in an American court. Joe Lieberman (‘R’-Sociopath), the head of the Senate’s Homeland Security Committee, claimed yesterday that the leaks organised by Julian Assange and his associates were “serious violations of the Espionage Act”.

Assange could face espionage trial in US –Washington sees chance as WikiLeaks founder is jailed as battle begins to prevent extradition over sex charges 08 Dec 2010 Informal discussions have already taken place between US and Swedish officials over the possibility of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange being delivered into American custody, according to diplomatic sources. Mr Assange is in a British jail awaiting extradition proceedings to Sweden after being refused bail at Westminster Magistrates’ Court despite a number of prominent public figures offering to stand as surety. His arrest in north London yesterday was described by the US Defence Secretary Robert Gates as “good news”, and may pave the way for extradition to America and a possible lengthy jail sentence.

  • Gee wonder why he wasn’t up in arms about revealing intelligence assets when the Bushies (Rove and Libby) outed the cia operative ?
