WikiLeaks says someone is trying to silence its founder Julian Assange pic.twitter.com/wtevyp6mKs— FOX & Friends (@foxandfriends) October 17, 2016
WikiLeaks announced via Twitter Monday that it had launched “contingency plans” after unnamed state hackers severed the internet link used by Assange, who is under siege in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, taking pain pills for infirmities and with no access to sunlight or outdoor space....
Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) October 17, 2016
The silencing of Assange came with a bit of drama.
