'The Daily Show' recaps WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's embarrassing arrest

The WikiLeaks co-founder was dramatically arrested on Thursday at the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he had been holed up for nearly seven years. Press freedom in Russian Federation is extremely limited, and the country ranked 148 out of 180 nations in the Reporters Without Borders 2018 Press Freedom Index.

"Though the Secretary of State does have very limited powers to interfere, I don't see that discretion being used", she said.

James O'Brien revealed where he stands on whether or not the United Kingdom should extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the U.S. to face charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion. The allegations by two women have not been tested in court and Assange has denied wrongdoing.

Assange has been living at Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012 when he sought refuge there after being accused of sexual assault in Sweden. But the line there is a little too close for comfort for me, and many others. Assange ultimately requested more information related to the password, telling Manning that while he had tried to crack it, he "had no luck so far". "They each had sex with me willingly and were happy to hang out with me afterwards".

Julian Assange gestures to the media from a police vehicle on his arrival at Westminster Magistrates Court.

In a grueling 18-month legal case, during which he was under partial house arrest, Assange's team called upon Swedish legal experts who suggested that Ny had mishandled the case and that she had a bias against men. He had previously fumed about Assange's alleged involvement in leaking documents connecting Moreno and figures in his family and government to various corruption schemes. "And that court has final say in whether or not he will be extradited".

Why did he enter Ecuador's London embassy?

Eight weeks later, he was granted asylum.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Assange would get no special treatment from his native country or consular offices.

The Hackney North MP tweeted: "In this country we have protections for whistle-blowers, those who take personal risk to disclose wrongdoing in the public interest". Though prosecutors dropped this investigation, Assange still faced British charges of failing to appear in front of a court when ordered to.

This week may change that.

"We will now examine the case in order to determine how to proceed".

The actual left in the UK, US, Latin America & Europe has largely denounced US Govt's indictment & attempted extradition of Assange.

He tweeted: "The extradition of Julian Assange to the United States for exposing evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan should be opposed by the British government".

Britain is bound by law not to extradite a suspect to a country where he or she could face execution for the crime, but that's not the case here.
