Like it or not, Julian Assange and his information dispensary have been a massive game changer in this election. Assange’s email leaks have made so much news, that his organization has become a cemented part of the 2016 elections.

But now, according to AP, Julian Assange internet access has been cut, and according to sources, this was done by the state.

WikiLeaks says that founder Julian Assange’s internet access has been cut by an unidentified state actor. Few other details were immediately available.

Assange has been up holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London for more than four years after skipping bail to avoid being extradited over sex crimes allegations.

The cramped quarters haven’t prevented the Australian transparency activist from working and WikiLeaks continues to deliver scoops, including revelations that have rattled Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president as the U.S. election enters its final stretch.

Calls, texts and emails left with WikiLeaks weren’t immediately returned Monday. A woman who picked up the phone at the embassy said: “I cannot disclose any information.” An email to Ecuador’s ambassador wasn’t immediately answered. London’s Metropolitan Police declined comment.

WikiLeaks itself has confirmed this in a tweet.

Assange’s work during the 2016 elections have had impacts, so his access being cut during a time when everyone is trying to keep as many secrets as possible is not at all surprising. The question is, who did it?

Redstate will continue to update this story as time goes on.
