Wikileaks founder Julian Assange just had his Internet access yanked, allegedly by "a state party." Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the past five years to avoid police questioning about rape and molestation accusations. Assange says the false allegations are a plot to extradite the famed whistleblower to the United States. State officials say Assange is not a prisoner, and is free to go if he's willing to answer for the accusations. What do you think? Vote below!

Here's why Assange is wanted by the Swedish authorities.

The offences are alleged to have been committed against two women in August 2010. On 20 August 2010, Swedish authorities issued an arrest warrant for Mr Assange on two counts, one of rape and one of molestation.
The warrant was withdrawn a day later, but Swedish prosecutors continued investigations into the molestation allegation.
In September 2010 the rape investigation was re-opened, and in November 2010 a Swedish court approved a request to detain Mr Assange for questioning relating to one count of unlawful coercion, two counts of sexual molestation, and one count of rape. An international arrest warrant was issued relating to those allegations.

Julian Assange isn't a political prisoner in the strictest sense. He's wanted for questioning for accusations of rape in Sweden, which he and his supporters claim are trumped up charges designed to extradite him to the United States. However, it's extremely doubtful that Sweden would extradite Assange to the United States.

Assange's supporters see this as a concerted effort to silence someone who's been a thorn in the side of the media and the establishment. It's readily apparent that Wikileaks has been publishing information that Clinton and her friends would rather stay secret.
