at the time they weren't and its still under investigation, and the word of one senator doesn't mean shit its just Ironic it would take them this long plus since its not official (from our government) seeing as we already have our scapegoat for the Wikileaks (bradley manning) I don't think this will go anywhere
That's what you think? That the government will settle for a scapegoat? Is that why they spent months and months trying to break Manning and get him to roll over on Assange? They don't care about Manning, he's just a lone whistleblower. Wikileaks, on the other hand, is an organization dedicated to whistleblowing, one that has caused incalculable damage to the US Government by airing out its dirty little secrets. You think that's going to be allowed to stand? No, they've already taken measures to destroy Wikileaks by making it close to impossible for them to raise donations, and they've been gunning for Assange all along.
dunno but they could give him Espionage charges aiding our enemy.
Yeah, because after all, there's a very fine line between espionage and journalism. Publishing leaked documents for all the world to see is exactly the same as secretly giving those documents to an organization bent on destroying the US.
If I didn't know any better, I'd say that Julian Assange was the worst spy ever.
and I don't know where the moron got the idea of us giving him the death penalty the US can't give the death penalty to a foreign citizen.
Who knows? Maybe it was all of the non-US citizens the US has executed that gave him that impression?

This is why Feinstein's comment is flat out stupid. If you're trying to get Ecuador to release Assange to actually face his rape charges, it'd be best to NOT fuel the idea that you want him out just to take him yourself.true but it doesn't matter since the US and UK have extradiction treaties with ecuador
Having read the treaties that Ecuador has with the US, Assange is perfectly safe from extradition, unless the US is planning to charge Assange with one of the following: murder, rape, arson, piracy, mutiny, burglary, forgery, counterfeiting, embezzlement of public funds, embezzlement of private funds, malicious destruction, or attempted destruction of railways, bridges, vessels, dwellings, public edifices, or other buildings, when the act endangers human life, abortion, trafficking, bigamy, kidnapping, larceny, receiving money under false pretenses, fraud, bribery, crimes against bankruptcy laws, drug crimes, deserting ones children, or participating in the execution of the above mentioned crimes.
All of the above must also have happened in the jurisdiction of the United States for the US to be able to ask for extradition.
