On this episode we discuss the arrest of Julian Assange, break down a recent NYT story about him, and look at other various bits of disinformation that people are blindly repeating. 
Below are some links that you might find useful reading. 
According to Assange’s Swedish lawyer, Björn Hurtig, he contacted the Swedish prosecutor on five occasions in September and October 2010 – before the arrest warrant was issued on 18 Nov – “and offered that Julian could be interrogated in Sweden – I would even say I requested it”. He later proposed that Ny could interview Assange by other means, such as by video-link, or that police in Britain be allowed to interview him. Even after Assange had sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy, due to fears he would be extradited to the United States, his legal team and the Ecuadorian government continued to offer access to Assange to answer the questions of the Swedish prosecutors. They *finally* sent someone to interview him – on 14 November 2016. Six years after the arrest warrant. So for SIX YEARS he had been offering to be subjected to an interview. 
“Wikileaks never ‘leaked’ anything from Russia” … except, of course, for the stuff they leaked from Russia. But don’t let facts get in the way of the American deep state narrative. Or, you know, bother to actually take a look at the Wikileaks website before you make such comments.
