Julian Assange arrested in London at Ecuadorian embassy

LONDON β€” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy on Thursday to face a charge in the U.S. of conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network in 2010, according to the New York Times.

According to the BBC, Assange took refuge in the embassy in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over a sexual assault case that has since been dropped.

According to the New York Times, the Ecuadorian government suspended the citizenship it had granted Assange and evicted him on Thursday, clearing the path for his arrest.

Apparently, Ecuador was growing impatient with Assange, after they say he interfered with other states' internal affairs and his personal habits of not cleaning the bathroom or looking after his cat.

At Westminster Magistrates' Court on Thursday he was found guilty of jumping bail.

He is now looking at U.S. federal conspiracy charges related to one of the biggest ever leaks of government secrets.

According to the BBC, the U.K. will decide whether to extradite Assange, in response to allegations by the Department of Justice that he conspired with Chelsea Manning to download classified databases.

Assange is looking at up to five years in the slammer if convicted on the charges of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion.

The WikiLeaks founder said he would fight extradition, and legal experts told the New York Times that the process could take years.
