''We have a sealed indictment on Assange.''
Julian Assange and WikiLeaks will continue to feature prominently in "freedom discussions" and despite the fact it's election year, Assange will not face charges in the United States."
The Greens Senator Scott Ludlam is asking questions according to AAP:
"What we need to know is whether the Australian government was tipped off, or whether the prime minister read about this in The Sydney Morning Herald this morning," he told reporters in Canberra. The Australian government needed to take "a very straight line" with the US on the issue. "That we will not permit, and we will not tolerate his transfer to the US, to face charges that could potentially land him in prison, potentially for decades."
