The battle between Assange and the USA government was always going to be epic, involving concepts like free speech, journalists' rights, national interests, even treason.
On March 25, WikiLeaks posted a tweet bringing attention to a corruption probe that Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno is facing. The Wikileaks founder continued his operation with little interruption throughout his stay there until Correa's vice president, Lenin Moreno, took power in 2017 shortly after the 2016 USA presidential election, during which Wikileaks published damaging emails from the DNC showing that the organization colluded with the media to rig the primary election against Bernie Sanders to secure Hillary Clinton's presidential nomination.
Julian Assange's arrest on Thursday in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London opens the next chapter in the saga of the WikiLeaks founder: An expected extradition fight over a pending criminal prosecution in the United States.

Assange denied those accusations and argued that arrest in Sweden or the United Kingdom would lead to his extradition to the USA where he would face prosecution for his publishing activities.

In line with standard operating procedure in Swedish courtrooms, he was not formally charged. According to the indictment, Assange allegedly offered to help Manning break a password to a secure government database.
USA prosecutors say Assange was part of a criminal conspiracy to hack and steal information harmful to the United States. The two women who accused him said they had brief affairs with him while he was visiting the country, but that he later acted in a nonconsensual way - including having unwanted and unprotected sex with one of the women while she was asleep.
