WikiLeaks blames US for cutting Assange’s internet connection
WikiLeaks is accusing U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry of trying to stop the site from publishing stolen emails from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Citing “multiple U.S. sources,” the site tweeted on Tuesday that Kerry had asked the Ecuadorian government to prevent WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange from releasing more documents.
Assange is currently residing in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been helping to run the WikiLeaks site. But on Saturday, the Ecuadorian government shut down his internet connection.
WikiLeaks claimed that Kerry had private negotiations with Ecuador last month. However, the U.S. Department of State is denying any involvement with cutting Assange’s internet connection.
