The US prosecution of Julian Assange has been dealt another blow following revelations that the CIA plotted the kidnap and rendition or murder of the WikiLeaks founder. The revelations also directly implicate Mike Pompeo, former CIA director and secretary of state, and US president Donald Trump.

Separately, there’s evidence of how cyber activists foiled a 2012 attempt by British police to break into and enter the Ecuadorian embassy where Assange had sought asylum.

Politically motivated
Meanwhile, Assange is still held in Belmarsh Prison, even though UK tribunal judge Vanessa Baraitser blocked his extradition to the US on health and safety grounds – meaning risk of suicide. But her ruling regarding the charges raised equated to a “ringing endorsement of the US prosecution case”.

The latest revelations provide further proof that the US case against Assange is political, and therefore the prosecution should cease.
