7:02 pm
look i. was the only video agency to film xena songs being removed from the embassy a number of media outlets that initially claimed there was lower left off his own hold on was arrested outside were forced to change their reporting the images released following his arrest was taken to westminster district school where he was convicted of breaching bail in two thousand and twelve with more on the case reports from central on the. well julian assange just found guilty by a court to the scathing judge inside westminster magistrates court here
7:03 pm
a little bit earlier on the judge told us saw nj a narcissist to conduct that constitutes a self interest and i saw him just told me he would be sentenced to a later date set up by a video link to the u.k. charges to tree in a sauna skipping bail back to twenty twelve they carry a month maximum sentence of about twelve months so relatively speaking it's a pretty small fry compared to the looming threat of potential all the charges that he's facing in the u.s. that some more concerning to his legal team we know that the u.s. justice department has unveiled charges of computer hacking against julian assange and there's an expected to be an extradition hearing in relation to that in may as well now as soon as the court proceedings here what a songes legal team on the wiki expects of us and came out take a listen to what they had to say this sets
7:04 pm
a dangerous precedent for all media organizations and journalists in europe and elsewhere around the world this precision means that any journalist can be extradited for prosecution in the united states for having published truthful information about the united states this is what god gave to journalists in our studios jennifer said he said so there's a good we don't want to this to go forward this has to sleep it has to be there to the u.k. government needs to make up for sure that journalists will never be extradited to the united states for publishing activities cipa seven years while he's been holed up in the edward dorian embassy had been saying that he most fear this potential threat of extradition to the usa where the diplomatic cables that he really. still as editor of wiki leaks back in two thousand and ten nine years ago today those today is all for a staunch being extradited being wanted in the u.s.
7:05 pm
based charges they turned into a reality at ten fifteen this morning he was forcibly removed from the ag dorian embassy waiting spread the last seven years the ecuadorian also artie's hides and allowed the metropolitan police to go inside the embassy where a party genius on tried to resist arrest and then he was physically bundled up put in to a police baton and taken into police custody now very soon afterwards we learned that julian assange just political asylum to citizenship had been revoked by the ecuadorian authorities take a listen to what lenin morello the president of ecuador had to say about it told. us that the discourteous and aggressive behavior of mr julian are shown to give the whole stalin freshening declarations of his annoyed organization. on especially the
7:06 pm
transgression of international treaties who have led the situation to a point where the a sort of mr assad regime is unsustainable there are no longer the horrible really kind of boils down to two different issues but you sort of came together over the past eighteen months one is that the ecuadorian authorities didn't like the fact that they said julian assange once was interfering in the international affairs in the uk as of all the countries through his online activity through his activities as editor of wiki leaks but also there was this kind of domestic dispute bubbling beneath the surface as well last year julian assange was given a list of conditions that he needed to adhered to if he wanted to stay on the good side of his neck for dorrian hosts he was told they needed to tidy up offer him self between his policy and pay for his. food to pay for said norton three clean up after his talents which they threaten term leave and subsequently did this will
7:07 pm
a ship really break down and that's what led to the culmination of this situation at this boiling point this morning when the ecuadorian authorities allowed the met police to walk in and arrest julian assange on british officials are pretty pleased about what's happened will welcome the news this morning that the metropolitan police have arrested judy in a song. mr speaker this goes to show that in the united kingdom no one is above the law. but what we've shown today is that no one is above the law julian assange is no hero he's hidden from the truth for years and years but also a very courageous decision by president around zero in ecuador to resolve the situation even though there had been attempts to resolve this issue in the background for many years it all came to a head with sort of the u.k. ecuador and the u.s. playing this card against julian assange together i think today really we missed
7:08 pm
the end at the very least of the embassy chapter of the julian assange i'm sorry and we're moving on to perhaps a rather poor truncated chapter of an illegal extradition battle. spoken to the former president of ecuador who granted a song just saw him. thinks the country's current leadership is out for revenge. yes you know maybe. i think marino deserves the title of the greatest traitor of history that he could compete with judas the state of ecuador in accordance with international law and guided by its own national pride was simply applies to protect the person to whom it is granted asylum they put up and instead they simply gave a mug and allowed the british police to enter our embassy just imagine for a moment if it was the ecuadorian police entering the us embassy because wiki leaks released documents proving it not to mention other evidence like correspondence
7:09 pm
bills etc all now online so marina is taking revenge on a sandwich i think the consequences will be even harder because although i don't want to look ahead to the possibility that the u.k. will not extradite julian assange to the united states is very unlikely. united states has confirmed that it's requested the extradition of julian assange she's accused of conspiring to hack in government computer with whistleblower chelsea manning the justice department says he could face up to five years in prison artie's caleb moore but reports. interestingly we have heard from the u.s. president u.s. president donald trump has been asked about the arrest of julian assange and wiki leaks and he gave an interesting answer and that answer is a little bit different than the answer he gave on the campaign trail let's take a listen i know nothing about wiki leaks it's not my thing and i know there is something having to do with julie who saw as i have been seeing would accept and with so on that will be
7:10 pm
a determination i would imagine mostly by the attorney general who is doing an excellent job so he'll be making a determination i know nothing really about him it's not my son my deal in life wiki leaks were key leaks wiki leaks but you leaks it's been amazing what's coming out on wiki leaks the wiki leaks ricky leaks wiki leaks wiki leaks wiki leaks and wiki leaks documents wiki leaks i love wiki leaks. it's important to note that essentially you know a songe there is an effort to extradite him now from the u.s. department of justice we have a statement from the eastern district of virginia where they are essentially calling for for the extreme version of the indictment alleges that a songe coordinated with chelsea manning and together they tried to crack a password in order to get a defense department information that was classified which wiki leaks eventually published chelsea manning is in the hands of u.s.
7:11 pm
officials at this time being held and it's important to review what this information that chelsea manning was able to provide to wiki leaks actually contained let's review some of that information. i know. i'm. not a doctor but if you're getting. does
7:12 pm
the n.s.a. collect any data on the millions of new sort of. wiki leaks walks like a hostile intelligence or talks like a hot or cold turkey. at this point it's important to note that a number of u.s. intelligence officials have declared that wiki leaks is a basically they're referring to it as a russian the asset and this comes in response to these accusations came in response to wiki leaks publishing the e-mails from the democratic national committee and from hillary clinton's aide john podesta those e-mails were published
7:13 pm
now it was widely alleged in the united states that came from hacking those e-mails were acquired through computer hacking however wiki leaks has maintained that they were provided these e-mails from a leaker a leaker provide these provided these e-mails they did not hack in order to acquire them now in addition to a being accused of being a russian asset assad has been referred to as being an enemy by a number of u.s. officials the united states do something to stop mr sausage we're looking. that right now he should be treated as an enemy combatant which he would should be closed down permanently indecisively this guy is a traitor a treasonous and he has broken every law the united states the guy ought to be and i'm not for the death penalty so if i'm not for the death penalty want to do it illegally shoot the son of a this is a man of this combo jaan anything i'm aware of ignorance or misplaced idealism is no longer an acceptable excuse for lionizing these demons at this point juliana songes not anymore in the ecuadorian embassy and londa at this point he has been
7:14 pm
turned over to the u.k. officials he is in their custody now the question remains will he be extradited to the united states when a server speculates that if you copy say ited states he could be facing a lot more than simply this conspiracy of computer intrusion charge that charge only holds the potential for five years in prison but remains to be seen whether or not julian assad will be extradited to the united states where many speculate he could things much more serious charges than simply the computer hacking charge i would suspect that this statute was chosen by rote u.s. prosecutors to simplify the x. but guy. is extradition from u.k. to the us i would be surprised us doesn't the un amir and the indictment want to use on u.s. soil amend the indictment and tackle an additional charges one of which may very
7:15 pm
well be espionage. if the u.s. gives assurances to u.k. that the u.s. will not seek the military that will that will come in the u.k. and will not still to come just off of a short break stay tuned on to international. capitalism relies on competition so competition means that if you have winning ideas or winning companies you survive if you don't you don't survive best survival of the fittest is competition but if you have a corrupt subtle bank who's willing to finance dodgy deals then it crowds out the good company and end up with a lot of bad companies and it crowds out competition and you end up with a with
7:16 pm
a with the county kept growing. and. i remain very much opposed to military intervention i am opposed to it because i fundamentally do not believe it is in u.s. interests there are several issues at play in venezuela one is the terrible terrible humanitarian state into which venezuela has fallen under the regime of the first of which i wish to know nicolas maduro that alone in my opinion is not a justification for an american invasion. much of the program of the song proving to be more polarizing man ever before he goes down off took some look at the outpouring of reaction to the case. there is
7:17 pm
a rest i should say has clearly showcased how much of a divisive figure songe has become he's got an army of supporters on one hand he's got an army of his own the other one but really whether you like him or not he's won multiple awards for his journalism and that's why some of the most the most vocal bunch i should say were journalists activists and the whistleblowers who have stepped forward and his support to julian and one of the loudest voices in this choir was edward snowden a fellow whistleblower who is was granted asylum and who is still in russia who doesn't seem to be well moving him anywhere anytime soon but he has been very vocal along with some other journalists and whistleblowers have a listen to images of record those ambassador invoicing the case secret police into the embassy to drag a publisher of like you to know it was waiting john days most of the building are going to end up in the history books and sandra's critics may cheer but this is
7:18 pm
a dark moment for press freedom the u.s. did not waste any time putting in extradition requests for a sunday terrible press than if journalist publisher ends up in u.s. jail for iraq war logs and state department cables we queue leaks is a publisher charges now brought in connection with its material or any attempt to extradite assange to united states for prosecution under deeply flawed could you know of the espionage act nine hundred seventeen is an attack on all of us the d.-o. g. cis part of what is science did to justify his prosecution be young allegedly helping manning get the documents is that he encouraged manning to get more documents for him to publish journalists do this with sources constantly as you criminalization of journalism this is what jewel in the sands and wiki leaks like guilty of exposing the murderous outcome of the us military assault on iraq states don't have the right to kill willynilly whistleblowers do us all a service we only need to look at. the man and to see what
7:19 pm
a way to silence she is indefinitely detained for refusing to expose whistle blower and u.s. officials have already deemed the sons guilty judge me on the brink of mob is a former federal prosecutor. all national security cases for herself she hears my case as you judge them bastards. has ever wanted. it but i asked was i separate documents that i need to defend myself. all seventy arguments i suspect you'll get is going to get saved you'll just not be allowed. to the point is that they have if they're talking about and saying they have classified information collected by n.s.a. or cia then they can keep that out of sight of the public and even the defense lawyers and handle it with the judge in secret and convict him in secret that way the real issue is that he's exposing the the crimes that these governments are
7:20 pm
committing and the real truth about what's what's going on in there was governments that they don't want their own populations to know that they need the government position is the shadow government i would say here in the u.s. . once the population in the united states to be uninformed and manipulable so they can manipulate them any way they want these are techniques that have been used in the intelligence agencies for over one hundred years but if you think it's just journalists or whistle blowers who have been supporting his sons will know one of these storing cheapest and most vocal supporters of a songe throughout the years of his asylum and now to what were the united nations about when he was holed up in the asylum they demanded and they condemned the u.k. for not allowing for not granting a songe of the freedom of movement he'd been saying that he should definitely be and should have definitely been allowed that now they've stepped forward and said that extradition could amount to
7:21 pm
a human rights violation and so if. to extradite the son to this would constitute a human rights violation italy and bolivia have already also condemned the handling of the a sanch case the sort of the man handling of the of the world we can leak of the founder of wiki leaks and well maybe on a more personal note i should say pamela anderson who i should i suppose i should describe as his long distance girlfriend of sorts she also went on a massive twitter round and she did not mince words when it came to her describing a world well what she what she hopes to the fate will bring to everyone responsible for what happened to julian astonished today now these are the just some of the supporters of julian assange but of course you have them on the one side of the argument and you have all the bureaucratic and you know the government machine or the u.k. of the united states of some other states as well who have cheered who have cheered on her praised what happened today but i guess the day to look out to look forward
7:22 pm
to is may the second now journalist supporter of banks told us she believes that assad is a fiction was planned well in advance. i think that this is. a really really dark day for press freedom. julian assange has done more for free press and the right to know and free information than any other journalist in history he's nominated for the nobel peace prize this year and the fact that our administration is extraditing him and charging him for doing journalism is shocking and disgusting it's all obviously court made and i think this has been planned for a long time and went to their good rate embassy and there was a car that was sitting outside for twenty hours they had shifts of people rotating through every six or so hours and another car that was sitting with their spot lay
7:23 pm
on the embassy so i had confronted both of them they said they weren't media and then they wouldn't answer whether or not they were aligned fauresmith but they claimed to not do what we even was and they are seen arresting him today and i could bring government was just looking and making excuses to put him into the hands of the united states government where he's definitely not going to get a fair trial or monrovia story don't anything on your coverage we can expand it's you know songs was arrested on thursday morning and dragged out of the ecuadorian embassy in london where he's been taking refuge for nearly seven years ruptly video agency captured exclusive video of the moment he was taken from the building. close. was.

7:25 pm
stop slamming the door on the bats and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for washington. and what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line and they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to listen. to the right to be trusted this is like the full story in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the house. or in the city. i've been saying the numbers mean something they've matter to us is over one trillion dollars in debt that the floated will be loans to be ultra rich eight point six percent world market post thirty percent some with four hundred to five
