Assange lawyer: US drawing up case of unprecedented size & scale
Julian Assange has been holed up in Ecuador's diplomatic mission for over 6 weeks now, seeking asylum. He denies the sex crime claims and believes they're just a pretext to hand him over to the US There, he fears prosecution for espionage after a massive leak of secret diplomatic and military files.
Assange's lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, says America's given no assurances that they're not interested in prosecuting him - even though it could be done easily.

of "political persecution" is great cover for a multitude of sins. I wonder how many incarcerated young black and latino prisoners wish they'd been able to come up with such a defense to evade prosecution. Luckily for Assange, he has many friends in very high places, either that or he's got the goods on some of his "supporters".
