Julian Assange Arrested in London, Charged By U.S. With Conspiracy to Commit Computer Intrusion

Following his arrest by British police in London at the Ecuador embassy due to an extradition request from the United States, prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia unsealed a conspiracy to commit computer intrusion charge against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Prosecutors say that Assange agreed to, unsuccessfully as it turns out, help then-Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning break a password to the Defense Department’s computer network in 2010.  Prosecutors also allege that Assange was actively conspiring to break into systems to obtain the information in the first place, through illegal means. Although Assange supporters and some free press advocates will characterize the charges as having wide-ranging implications for First Amendment rights, the charges narrowly stem from Assange’s alleged conspiracy to help hack government systems, a situation that does not apply to most journalists, who, even if recipients of hacked information, don’t participate or have advanced knowledge of the criminal hacking acts.
