Sooooo basically that headline says it all.
This morning, a disheveled and heavily bearded WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he had been granted refuge since 2012 while on bail over sexual assault allegations against him in Sweden.
via CBS News:
The arrest came after Ecuador dropped Assange’s asylum status, effectively evicting him from their embassy.
Assange hadn’t left the embassy since August 2012, fearing that if he stepped off Ecuador’s diplomatic soil he would be arrested and extradited to the U.S. for publishing thousands of classified military and diplomatic cables through WikiLeaks.
And if you’ve seen the video, below, it shows. He looks a little worse for the wear, not having seen the sun or had any fresh air in seven years. Like Howard Hughs. Or Mr Burns as Howard Hughs.
It has been confirmed he has indeed been placed under arrest “on behalf” of US law enforcement authorities, who filed a formal extradition request. The Department of Justice unveiled its long-secret indictment against him later this morning, which shows he’s facing at least one computer hacking charge.
His rumored girlfriend Pamela Anderson was raaaaaaather upset about today’s developments, going on a Twitter rant that was positively Trumpian in its undiluted, unhinged anger.

I couldn’t hear clearly what he said?
He looks very bad.

How could you UK. ?
Of course – you are America’s bitch and
you need a diversion from your idiotic Brexit bullshit.
This story is developing.
