Obama/DNC are after him, and there’s the Chelsea Manning event which had everyone after him.
Assange will say/do anything to stay out of the USA. Tossing Trump’s name out there is a bit of desperation on his part to escape extradition.

At least 36 people have been fatally stabbed - and 62 overall killed - in London since the beginning of the year.
Met Police records show 37, 443 recorded knife offences and 6,694 recorded gun offences across the UK in the year up to September 2017.
In London, the problem was even more pronounced than the rest of the country, with 12,980 knife crimes taking place in the capital - 2,452 more than the equivalent year.
Four teenagers were stabbed to death in London on New Year's Eve alone, and 22 were killed in March - meaning the capital now has a higher murder rate than New York.
Well, it depends. There is of course only one Clarkson. However, there is the witty one, the racist one, the violent one, and even more! Primitive though? Well, I'd have to say that is evidenced by his guest choices (presuming he had any choice).
Yes, I do have a problem with "Software Engineering." I am a victim of it every day. It is an odd coincidence that the car I use, the roads I use, the buildings I live and work in and most of the planes and boats I've had occasion to use have orders of magnitude less failures than I experience with the products of "Software Engineering."
I suspect it has to do with the rise of hacker culture, where getting things to work in a sometimes, somewhen manner is the height of "Software Engineering" practice in the modern world.
At this point in time I am wondering how long it is before some evil bastard decides to remote control my car because of frankly inadequate "Software Engineering."
Same kind of shenanigans Microsoft pulled all those years before. Same type of "But Microsoft can do what they want", "But Apple/Google/Whoever does it, so it is ok" pap. Wrong is wrong, no matter how many people do it.
I do wonder whether corporate W10 systems will have their data hoovered into the cloud or not. I hardly think the likes of [Any/all large corporate] are going to be too orgasmic if said hoovering is going to happen. And if it's not going to happen to them, why the little guy/guyette/other?
It's almost as though Ballmer has risen from the dead...
They (Microsoft) probably pumped a billion or few at creating W8. And given this "investment" I'd say they have a vested interest in pumping a truckload more billions into getting it to work (or hurriedly moving on to W9).
So, if you hate it with a passion, enjoy the oodles of cash Microsoft will burn fixing it or moving on. If you think W9 will be all that, be grateful for no expense being spared to fix up the eyesore that is W8.
And yea, Ballmer said, W8 is all you'll ever need, until W9 comes up (I think rather soon).
They are long on conclusion, short on method and analysis and in all likelihood the data was made to fit the predetermined conclusion.
As we all know, it is the white mice we have to fear, and this researcher has as with many others fallen prey to their cunning ministrations and orchestrations.
Other than that it is amusing to see the revisionists hard at work trying to tell the world that Stalin et al weren't really the epitome of the left but were really right wing stooges.
Not that this update bricked some phones but the reports that Microsoft and Samsung are passing the buck on getting the bricked phones sorted.
One would imagine that from the get go there should have been clear lines of responsibility defined by the licensing and related agreements between Microsoft and Samsung.
Epic fail on both from both of them.
There is no evidence or for that matter likelihood of Nokia regaining smartphone market share or even slowing the haemorrhaging in market share by this deal with Microsoft.
Note also that they are talking a two year time frame for implementation. Do you honestly think that the other smartphone makers are going to wait upon Nokia and Microsoft to release an offering before upping their game?
Google isn't that stupid. Maybe they would even be kosher with an "independent expert" being tasked to poke around their algorithms to see how they work and report back to the EC on their findings.
The only problems with that is that they do risk the expert coming back and telling the world that their algorithms are about as "honest" as Bill Clinton when asked about sex, or that the said expert gets an "offer they can't refuse" from someone with deep pockets and a lustful look who happens to be wearing a "bing suit."
a) Ballmer looking to see if he can get a job at Adobe
b) A way for Microsoft to spend more than $40 billion on something it doesn't need
c) That Microsoft's lawyers are bored and need some anti-trust fun
d) It was a fun way to try and boost Microsoft's share price
e) They were bored and wanted to mess with people
Ballmer, king of the flying office chairs!
