Julian Assange indictment: Read the grand jury indictment against the WikiLeaks founder

Shortly after Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice revealed a grand jury indictment against the WikiLeaks founder.

The indictment charges Assange with conspiring to hack government computers.

The indictment alleges that Assange conspired with Chelsea Manning, a former Army intelligence analyst, to assist with cracking a password for Defense Department computers that housed government secrets. Assange is charged with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison if he is convicted.

Manning leaked huge troves of government secrets to WikiLeaks in 2010. Prosecutors on Thursday called it the largest compromise of classified information in US history.

A federal grand jury in Virginia delivered the seven-page indictment in March 2018, but prosecutors kept it secret until Thursday. The indictment includes details of messages exchanged between Manning and Assange.
