Weeks earlier, we now learn, Assange had asked Trump Jr to try to get him appointed as an ambassador (!) & he advised Trump camp to make "rigging" claims if they lost the election. Not the behaviour of a non-partisan actor.

In January I remember saying Assange was trying to endear himself to Trump & he claimed in response WikiLeaks was just using pro Trump media to "amplify its publications and critiques."

The story has the background. There's a conspiracy theory about a disgruntled insider. It's garbage imo; outside hack far more likely.

There was no suggestion Josh Walker was plotting a terror attack. The govt claimed possession of the book alone was a Terrorism Act offence.
