The Swedes don’t want him. So, the USA has him up for violating the Espionage Act.

The publishing of the Iraq War footage showing a US Apache helicopter shooting dead 12 people, including two Reuters staff, is one of the most significant and talked-about exposures made by his WikiLeaks organization.

Just one week before Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party’s nominee for president in 2016, WikiLeaks released thousands of emails showing that top party figures had collaborated to ensure that Senator Bernie Sanders did not win the nomination. The leaks forced DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to resign.

Julian Assange will appear before a British court early next year in a US extradition hearing. He will not be extradited to the United States until that time.

Julian Assange is set to appear before a British court early next year in a hearing on whether the WikiLeaks founder should be extradited to the U.S., a judge in London ruled on Friday.

The charges Assange faces include conspiring to hack government computer networks.

He will have the hearing in February, which could last for several days.

Via video link to a courtroom on Friday, Assange defended himself against allegations that he illegally revealed classified government and military information by saying, "WikiLeaks is nothing but a publisher," according to the BBC.
