    Would it be fair to assume Ecuador will be getting something out of this other than getting rid of someone who sounds like a nuisance?

    Not sure how to feel about this. He's a rapist **** who probably should be in a jail, but in Sweden, and certainly not for whatever the Americans want to pin on him.
    Was the rape stuff proved? I tuned out years ago on him.

    He fled the country before he could be tried for it. The allegations fell in the Paddy Jackson/Stuart Olding area where a court might not convict, but even the best-case scenario makes him a disgusting, horrifying creep.

    Yeah he almost certainly did it imo.

    That aside, however, his arrest is a terrible development for freedom of press/freedom of expression.

    Not in court, but hiding in an embassy for 7 years to avoid trial isn't what I would expect an innocent man to do.

    A guy who has the entire deep state after him refusing to leave an embassy isn't evidence in unrelated rape accusations. That's incredibly stupid.

    Not to say there isn't other evidence mind.

    The deep state has nothing to do with Assange. The state quite literally and openly wants him.

    Certainly within America, the original application of the idea of “deep state” - the quite powerful domination of the Turkish military over 60s - 80s Turkish politics - doesn’t really apply.

    The rape charge began with the 2 women contracting STDs from him and asking authorities to have him tested

    Looks like he'd still be there if he hadn't flung poo all over the walls.

    Of all the memes in the world this is the one I would've expected you to know about. Shocked you weren't in attendance tbh.

    I don't think this is as true post Trump though. I don't think it applies to the "intelligence communities" either.
