WikiLeaks' Julian Assange's arrest draws fiery responses from U.S. lawmakers

WikiLeaks' Julian Assange's arrest draws fiery responses from U.S. lawmakers The arrest of Julian Assange in London drew a mixture of reactions from U.S. lawmakers early Thursday — particularly after the Justice Department charged the WikiLeaks mastermind with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion. Assange, 47, is being accused of working with whistleblower Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning, a former U.S. intelligence analyst, in 2010 to crack a password stored on a U.S. Defense Department computer to obtain classified Pentagon documents. If convicted, Assange faces up to five years in prison.

The Ecuadorean embassy in London did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Assange's relations with his hosts have chilled since Ecuador accused him of leaking information about President Lenin Moreno’s personal life. Moreno has said Assange has violated the terms of his asylum.

To some, Assange is a hero for exposing what supporters cast as abuse of power by modern states and for championing free speech. But to others, he is a dangerous rebel who has undermined the security of the United States.

Hrafnsson said attempts to evict Assange from the embassy had been escalating and that WikiLeaks received information last week that it could happen within hours or days.

He did not immediately give evidence for his assertions. Reuters was unable to independently verify the allegations.

Hrafnsson said that the surveillance at the embassy was part of an escalation designed to achieve the result of having Assange extradited to the United States.
