WikiLeaks has confirmed that the government of Ecuador did indeed cut off internet access to Julian Assange on Saturday afternoon.
However, if the move was intended to stop the flood of leaked documents, it hasn’t worked. Part 9 of the email files was released on Sunday, and Part 10 was released Monday afternoon.
We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet access Saturday, 5pm GMT, shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speechs.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has accused Russia of hacking their emails and leaking the document to WikiLeaks, and have called WikiLeaks the “Russian propaganda arm,” despite Russia’s repeated denials that they were not involved. Clinton blames Vladimir Putin for meddling in the U.S. elections, and NBC reported that the Obama administration is threatening a “cyber war” against Russia “in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in the American presidential election.”
Now, in an ironic twist, it is suspected that the U.S. has meddled in the Ecuadorian government, by pressuring them to cut off internet service to Assange. If the Wikileaks email dumps have proven one thing, it’s that the Clintons use foreign governments to fund their activities. Furthermore, a few emails show the Clinton team and the Obama administration working together behind the scenes to make decisions about the deleted emails. There is much speculation that the president and Hillary Clinton exchanged emails via Hillary’s private email server. Thus, the Obama administration would have plausible reason to put pressure on Ecuador. Keep in mind, the U.S. provided Ecuador with $26 million in aid in 2012.
ZeroHedge noted, “Perhaps we should be checking flight logs for mysterious planes landing in Quito with billions of Swiss Francs on board.”
Hillary Clinton has benefited from other foreign government “meddling”. Saudi Arabia has meddled in the U.S. election by self-admittedly funding approximately 20% of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
In an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press” with Chuck Todd, Vice-President Joe Biden said about the alleged hacking, “We’re sending a message.” (To Russia.) Biden said threateningly, “We have the capacity to do it, and it will be at the time of our choosing and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact.”
He continued, “Their capacity to fundamentally alter the election is, uh, not what people think, and to the extent that they do, we will be proportional in what we do.”
“So a message is gonna be sent,” asked Chuck. “Will the public know it?”
“I hope not,” Biden responded.
