Assange Expects U.S. Spying Charges

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is free for now on the order of a British judge, but he doesn't expect to stay that way. “We have heard from one of my U.S. lawyers, yet to be confirmed, but a serious matter, that there may be a U.S. indictment for espionage for me, coming from a secret U.S. grand jury investigation,” Assange said from a mansion in East Anglia, where he's been ordered to stay. Assange is in the process of being extradited to Sweden to face sex offenses he denies. But he's worried that Americans could be behind that, too. "Obviously it is extremely serious, and one of the concerns that we have had since I have been in the UK is whether the extradition proceeding to Sweden is actually an attempt to get me into a jurisdiction which will then make it easier to extradite me to the United States," Assange said.
