The Department of Justice reportedly plans to indict WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, says Business Insider.
The exact charges prosecutors would bring remain unclear, but they are likely to include some related to the Espionage Act.
Prosecutors are reportedly optimistic that they could get Assange into a US court. Assange is currently seeking asylum at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.
The DOJ’s push to indict Assange comes at a time when his relationship with Ecuador is in decline.
The DOJ has been investigating Assange since 2010.
