C.E. Dyer reports that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is living in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in an effort to avoid a rape charge in Sweden, which he has claimed is political and would lead to his extradition to the U.S. for previous leaks. On Saturday, WikiLeaks claimed Assange had his internet access cut off, and it has since been reported that a “state actor” did it. Now, Ecuador has confirmed that they did it.
On Tuesday, the Ecuadorian government released a statement about Assange in which they admitted that they cut off his internet access in response to WikiLeaks’ release of hacked emails from the account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. However, they say they will continue to offer him asylum.
“The Government of Ecuador respects the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states. It does not interfere in external electoral processes, nor does it favor any particular candidate,” Ecuador’s statement read.
“Accordingly, Ecuador has exercised its sovereign right to temporarily restrict access to some of its private communications network within its Embassy in the United Kingdom.”
The statement assured that the block of internet access was temporary: “This temporary restriction does not prevent the WikiLeaks organization from carrying out its journalistic activities.”
Assange’s internet access was cut off Saturday, according to WikiLeaks, after they released transcripts of Clinton’s infamous and highly secretive Goldman Sachs speeches.
The Daily Caller reported that WikiLeaks accused Secretary of State John Kerry of being behind Ecuador’s decision:
Assange’s organization revealed Tuesday that sources tell them United States Secretary of State John Kerry urged Ecuador to stop Wikileaks from publishing documents related to Clinton during a September meeting.
Wikileaks claimed that the request from Kerry to Ecuador came during negotiations in Colombia regarding the terrorist organization FARC.

This revelation, along with Democrats’ hysterical finger-pointing at the Russians, at the very least appears to confirm the authenticity of the emails, which have revealed a great deal of damning information about the inner workings of the Clinton campaign and how disastrous a Clinton presidency would be.
While the Democrats work to point the finger at the Russian boogeyman, Americans are finally getting at least some of the transparency that has been denied them.
The system is rigged in Clinton’s favor — there’s no doubt about that. If there’s any shot at getting any of it back in the people’s favor, we have to show up and vote for Donald Trump on November 8th — or else watch our country cede its authority to Hillary Clinton and the globalists.
