I've been reading parts of the government's files on #WikiLeaks lately, and if I'm reading them right then FBI has evidence against #Assange that's unrelated to WL's publications, and for which no First Amendment defense exists.
<something, somewhere goes wrong>

Half the people working w/ Julian: "Welp, better go to the FBI."
Pro tip: Go to your lawyer before you go to the FBI.

The West Is Failing Julian Assange

While the media focused on #Assange's cat rather than his continuing arbitrary detention,evidence shows that Britain has worked hard to force his extradition to Sweden where he feared he could then be turned over to US.

consortiumnews.com/2018/11/06/the…
There you have a man who is at serious risk of being arrested by UK, extradited to US & prosecuted for his publications.

A man who's been cut off from any human contact, with the exception of his lawyers & whose health is seriously declining due to prolonged confinement.
#Assange told me that when the cat was small, it had in fact made some efforts to escape, but as it has grown it had become so accustomed to confinement that whenever he tried to give the cat to someone else it, so it could enjoy its freedom, it showed fear of wide open spaces.

Shutting down Alex Jones was bad enough but shutting down Gab is silencing ALL the ppl having conversations. This should scare the hell out of everyone. This is the continuation of #Assange and really isn’t surprising. It’s only going to get worse as well.
REAL liberals would be outraged over silencing @getongab btw. Agreeing with the content is irrelevant. A REAL liberal would be freaking out over an entire platform being silenced over the views of a few in free speech. My, how they have changed.
@getongab In the 80’s George Carlin had a bit about “turning the knobs” on a radio show you didn’t agree with. It was directed at conservatives and censorship. Ironic in 2018, it is the conservatives fighting for free speech.

contrariamente a quanto fatto da #CrownProsecutionService, #ScotlandYard NON si presenterà in aula a Londra per mio #FOIA su staff #WikiLeaks: Sarah #Harrison, @khrafnsson @SwaziJAF
non presentandosi in aula,i miei legali NON potranno interrogare #ScotlandYard su perché mi negano accesso ai documenti su Sarah #Harrison, @khrafnsson @SwaziJAF
ho ricevuto molti "consigli" di chiudere mia azione legale basata su #FOIA per difendere diritto stampa di accedere a tutti i documenti del caso Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks. Molti mi hanno "consigliato" di lasciar perdere se non voglio veder distrutta mia professione

OK so here's what really happened to @JulianAssange today: #Ecuador court gave him a crap Internet link & even worse translator, but the judge pretended it was all because Australians can't understand English. #FreeASSANGE elcomercio.com/actualidad/aud…
(ht @LaFleurDelSur for link).
#ASSANGE even "tested out the translator to see how his remarks would be translated. He made several statements in English and then declared that the level of translation was insufficient. The judge then decided to suspend the hearing."
#ASSANGE lawyer Carlos Poveda said: "One of his concerns was that if he made a statement, it could be interpreted as a transgression of his special conditions. What a contradiction!"

#Assange's PR man (and convicted fraudster) Richard Hillgrove:

Foreign minister José Valencia said that Ecuador’s only responsibility was looking after #Assange’s wellbeing.

“Ecuador has no responsibility to take any further steps... This is a matter to be resolved between Assange and Great Britain” Valencia said. theguardian.com/media/2018/oct…
Valencia said he was “frustrated” by #Assange’s decision to sue over terms of his asylum requiring him to pay medical and telephone bills and to clean up after his cat.

“There is no obligation in international agreements for Ecuador to pay for things like Mr Assange’s laundry.”
Important point: "[Foreign minister José ] Valencia said on Tuesday that he has not discussed Assange’s situation with the United States’ government."

1. Rispondo a chi mi chiede del “piano russo” per far uscire Julian #Assange dal l’ambasciata dell’Ecuador. NON mi risulta che le cose siano andate come racconta il Guardian.lo dico da giornalista che nel dicembre 2017 fu allertata da #WikiLeaks che JA si stava preparando
2. Wikileaks mi avvertì,ma io non ero sicura di aver capito bene perché nessuno parlava via comunicazioni elettroniche. Io NON detti la notizia su Repubblica perché avevo paura di aver capito male.Chiesi alla direzione di volare subito a Londea
3. Volai subito a Londra, seppi del piano dello status diplomatico. La storia è completamente diversa

1. Vorrei precisare una cosa importante: Julian #Assange NON è antiamericano. È contro gli ABUSI di quello stato nello stato che è il national security state americano, NON è contro “l’America”. Se non si capisce questo, non si capisce NULLA
2. Dopo l’11 settembre, ci sono 2 stati negli USA: quello ufficiale,delle garanzie costituzionali frutto di ideali di libertà, diritti.E un secondo stato:il national security state,quello che ti può far sparire nel cuore della notte,con le sue rendition,i suoi black sites
3. Il national security state non risponde a nessuno, fa un vero baffo alle commissioni parlamentari che indagano sulle torture della Cia: per il national security state il Congresso e tutti i suoi meccanismi di accountability sono un circolo Pickwick

Documents on the secret process used to give #Assange Ecuadorian citizenship will be available soon, and should address allegations of irregularities in the process.
Politicians in Ecuador are moving to strip #Assange of his citizenship. Senior officials have also confirmed his attempted appointment to a diplomatic post in Moscow. And we may still see those documents soon. #InterestingTimes.
Pop over to @razhael's TL for more on this and some related issues.

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

"How can we view the ongoing silence from within the confines of the Ecuadorian embassy as anything other than a political, enforced disappearance in the middle of a so-called free, liberal society?"

#Unity4J #ReconnectJulian #FreeAssange #Auspol

Although #Assange is isolated by the Ecuadorian government, it is overwhelmingly clear that as per the definition, #Ecuador is "acquiescing" to the desire of the US & UK governments.

To the tune of $500 million.

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

I welcome Kristinn #Hrafnsson’s (@khrafnsson) appointment as @WikiLeaks’ Editor-in-Chief. The @USAgov’s campaign of dezinfomatsia, lawfare, & extortionate tactics — as well as the @govUK’s flagrant violations of international #HumanRights law — will clearly not impede WL’s work.
#Hrafnsson’s appointment sends a CLEAR SIGNAL to @TheJusticeDept: #WikiLeaks (& its fans) won’t back down, nor will WL’s mission be nullified by @CPSUK continuing to hold #Assange hostage. These terrorist tactics are beyond the scope of acceptable state behavior. #FreeAssange.
… moreover, this dumb & counterproductive campaign against #WikiLeaks — for daring to expose widespread, systemic corruption in the #DNC, inc. flagrant campaign finance violations — sets an anti-press precedent when we should be pressing #China on #FreeSpeech & #PressFreedoms.

"In view of the more recent work published by the #Forensicator regarding potential media collusion with #Guccifer2.0, we are inclined to revisit an interview given by #WikiLeaks Editor-In-Chief #JulianAssange in August of 2016.."

"The significance of revisiting #Assange’s statements is the degree to which his most significant claim is corroborated or paralleled by the #Forensicator’s analysis."

I made a presentation at the forum on the issue of Julian Assange's freedom. Here are the slides that I used to explore what #WikiLeaks is and its significance. nozomihayase.com/wp-content/upl… #FreeJulianAssange
#WikiLeaks is excellent journalism. It published over 10 million documents with pristine record of accuracy, more classified information than all media combined, exposing human right abuses, government spying and war crimes on a scale that was unprecedented.
But WikiLeaks is much more than just journalism. It is best viewed as an invention of new journalism built on the platform of the Internet. Just like the invention of the printing press, it has radically changed the world and solved many problems.
