United States prosecutors charge Wikileaks’ Julian Assange, reveals court document

An Oct. 1 2016 text message from Randy Credico to Roger Stone

Dwyer also told the judge that the charges would "need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested", the paper said. "That was not the intended name for this filing", Joshua Stueve wrote.

The US Justice Department inadvertently named Julian Assange in an unrelated case, suggesting prosecutors have prepared charges against the WikiLeaks founder.

Assange, who has been holed up in Ecuador's embassy in London since seeking asylum in 2012, is considered a wanted man by USA law enforcement agencies after his controversial publication of classified diplomatic cables and other secret United States government documents.

WikiLeaks is also connected to Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, with the investigation trying to determine whether associates of US President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of the hackers' plans to leak materials, including emails belonging to former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. USA intelligence agencies concluded that the emails were taken by Russian government hackers as part of an operation aimed at helping the campaign of Donald Trump. The reports did not indicate what charges Assange will face.

The filing was discovered by Seamus Hughes, a terrorism expert at the Program on Extremism at George Washington University in Washington DC, who posted it on Twitter hours after The Wall Street Journal reported that the Justice Department was preparing to prosecute Assange and said, "To be clear, seems Freudian, it's for a different completely unrelated case, every other page is not related to him, EDVA just appears to have assange [sic] on the mind when filing motions to seal and used his name".

"Prosecuting someone for publishing truthful information would set a bad and unsafe precedent", Pollack said.

The filing in the Eastern District of Virginia came on August 22, in a case that combines national security and sex trafficking.

Wikileaks tweeted the revelation was an "apparent cut-and-paste error".

The 47-year-old has always denied the allegations, and his supporters claim the accusations were an attempt to possibly extradite him to the USA, where he could face charges over WikiLeaks' publication of classified military and diplomatic documents.

But he was detained in part, according to the court filing, because he "has a substantial interest in terrorist acts".

USA prosecutors are gearing up for what they hope will be Julian Assange's day in an American court, according to a new report. Since June 2012, Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy, afraid that if he steps outside he will be arrested. Assange's defence team subsequently sued Ecuador over the conditions of his stay in the embassy, which, according to them, violate the WikiLeaks founder's rights.
