A few important points on the Assange charges accidentally revealed in court: they came in the form of a “criminal complaint,” not an indictment (so no indication yet it was brought to a grand jury); we don’t know when the charges were filed; & we don’t know what the charges are.

NEW: Deep scrub of Whitaker shows his shorthand bio - US Atty - is an aberration. He’s an entrepreneur who has over promised and has ended up in court defending his ventures, including a concrete supply business, a trailer manufacturer and day-care center.

Critics of the president might use this same phrase "...highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved)..." to describe his new acting attorney general.
