Ecuador's government acknowledged on Tuesday that it cut off WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's internet access at its embassy in London after the whistleblowing site published a trove of damaging emails from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
The recognition of the reprimand comes less than 24 hours after
WikiLeaks tweeted that Ecuador had cut off Assange's access to the
Internet on Saturday after the publication of Clinton's speeches to Wall
Street investment bank Goldman Sachs.
In follow-up messages posted Tuesday, the group claimed U.S. Secretary
of State John Kerry had personally intervened to ask Ecuador to stop
Assange from publishing documents about Clinton.
