Wikileaks: Espionage charges against Assange said to be "imminent"


Lawyers for Julian Assange expect the United States to file spying charges against the Wikileaks frontman soon.

"Our position of course is that we don't believe it applies to Mr. Assange and that in any event he's entitled to First Amendment protection as publisher of Wikileaks and any prosecution under the Espionage Act would in my view be unconstitutional and puts at risk all media organizations in the U.S.," said attorney Jennifer Robinson.
