Is Julian Assange Dead? Wikileaks Founder Possibly Silenced Over 'Pizzagate'

In 2016, there can hardly be anyone alive who does not know the name of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. As many will be aware Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012. Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy to escape extradition to Sweden where he is wanted for an alleged sexual assault on two women. Assange has always claimed he is totally innocent of any of the charges against him. Assange believes that the charges are an attempt by the political elite to silence both him and WikiLeaks.

During the 2016 presidential race, Assange claimed that WikiLeaks would release documents that could have an effect on the presidential election. On November 8, Assange supposedly released a statement through WikiLeaks explaining why they had released information during the campaign. Assange claims that WikiLeaks will continue to publish information that is "of political, diplomatic, historical or ethical importance and which has not been published elsewhere."

"Assange says 'in recent months, WikiLeaks and I personally have come under enormous pressure to stop publishing what the Clinton campaign says about itself to itself. That pressure has come from the campaign's allies, including the Obama administration, and from liberals who are anxious about who will be elected US President."

Officials released a statement saying that the government of Ecuador "respects the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states" and had cut off the internet access available to Assange because "in recent weeks, WikiLeaks has published a wealth of documents, impacting on the US election campaign."

The strange thing is that since his internet service was cut off, Assange has disappeared. Before that event, Assange made regular appearances on the balcony of the embassy in London.

"James Alefantis has some prominent Democratic friends in Washington and was a supporter of Mrs. Clinton, he has never met her, does not sell or abuse children, and is not being investigated by law enforcement for any of these claims.

"He and his 40 employees had unwittingly become real people caught in the middle of a storm of fake news."

TechPlz claims that Assange is either dead or has been taken into U.S. custody as was released by New York radio station SuperStation 95 last week. That report claimed that WikiLeaks has been taken over by government agents and that Assange is in custody.

"A WikiLeaks Staffer says he violated a U.S. 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."
