Yeah, I don't know where this FUD about his being potentially subject to the death penalty in the US is coming from. ...oh wait, I do know. From Assange and his mouth-pieces.

Even if they decide that Assange isn't a journalist, and is trying to extort the US govt with threats about their information, none of that is subject to a death penalty for anyone, much less a foreign national, FFS.
