'I do not wish to surrender' Julian Assange tells court over US extradition bid

Given the vagueness of the allegations in the indictment it doesn't sound like the United States of America Grand Jury has sufficient evidence to back up the indictment.

Perhaps that evidence will come out at the next hearing, but will it stand up to scrutiny as genuine (i.e. is it video or audio of the meetings, of the hacking, of evidence Assange was directly controlling the actions)?

Sounds like the extradition should be denied, Asswipe should serve his 22 weeks (assuming he can behave and earn parole), and on "release", Asswipe should be taken directly to an airport and put on a plane to Australia. In those 22 weeks the Swedes might re-open their request as one charge doesn't expire until 2020. Sweden or Australia, I don't care, just get him out of the UK.
