Julian Assange is missing and his organization, WikiLeaks, has been taken under government control, a viral, but fake conspiracy theory is claiming.
Assange has been a popular target for conspiracy theories in recent months, as WikiLeaks launched what appeared to be a partisan campaign against Hillary Clinton, releasing damaging emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's campaign manager, John Podesta.
The latest report that Julian Assange is missing comes from a number of conspiracy theory blogs, including one called SuperStation 95. In a report cited to "Newsroom," the site claimed to have information from a WikiLeaks staffer that Assange was missing and that WikiLeaks had been taken over.
"A stunning claim from a WikiLeaks Staffer who says he violated a US National Security Letter to make public the fact that WikiLeaks has been taken over by government and is no longer safe. He also says Julian Assange is 'missing' and presumed in Custody, while government operators use WikiLeaks computers to give the APPEARANCE that all is well."
