I can’t imagine why he is still being denied internet access. Obama, Kerry or whoever is responsible needs to step up and end the insanity and FREE Julian Assange!
The Wikileaks staff participated in the Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) today and released the following statement.
We are the WikiLeaks staff, including Sarah Harrison. Over the last months we have published over 25,000 emails from the DNC, over 30,000 emails from Hillary Clinton, over 50,000 emails from Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta and many chapters of the secret controversial Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA).
The Clinton campaign unsuccessfully tried to claim that our publications are inaccurate. WikiLeaks’ decade-long pristine record for authentication remains. As Julian said: “Our key publications this round have even been proven through the cryptographic signatures of the companies they passed through, such as Google. It is not every day you can mathematically prove that your publications are perfect but this day is one of them.”
We have been very excited to see all the great citizen journalism taking place here at Reddit on these publications, especially on the DNC email archive and the Podesta emails.
Recently, the White House, in an effort to silence its most critical publisher during an election period, pressured for our editor Julian Assange’s publications to be stopped. The government of Ecuador then issued a statement saying that it had “temporarily” severed Mr. Assange’s internet link over the US election. As of the 10th his internet connection has not been restored. There has been no explanation, which is concerning.
WikiLeaks has the necessary contingency plans in place to keep publishing. WikiLeaks staff, continue to monitor the situation closely.
