Yesterday, Wikileaks said a state cut off founder Julian Assange’s internet access at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, which led to theories that he died. But today, the anti-secrecy website claims Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet, nine days into Wikileaks email dumps of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails.

Ecuadorian embassy employees or ambassador would not comment on the tweet.

Wikileaks has also released more Podesta emails.

For the past week, Wikileaks has dumped thousands of emails from Podesta, but also her Goldman Sachs speeches. Unfortunately, for Hillary, this could have a bad affect on her campaign since the Democrats hate Wall Street. In fact, their hatred of Wall Street and the Clintons close relationship with the banks, caused her campaign to worry they may not receive an endorsement from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Not only that, but in one speech, she pushed for covert action in Syria:

According to the latest leaked emails, Mrs Clinton told a Goldman Sachs conference she would like to intervene secretly in Syria.

She made the remark in answer to a question from Lloyd Blankfein, the bank’s chief executive, in 2013 – months after she left office as secretary of state.

“My view was you intervene as covertly as is possible for Americans to intervene,” she told employees of the bank in South Carolina, which had paid her about $225,000 (£185,000) to give a speech.

Mrs Clinton – who is accused of being hawkish by liberal critics – added: “We used to be much better at this than we are now. Now, you know, everybody can’t help themselves.

“They have to go out and tell their friendly reporters and somebody else: Look what we’re doing and I want credit for it.”

Rumors of Assange’s death started on Sunday when Wikileaks tweeted out these 64-character codes:

Forbes reported:

The news came as bizarre rumors swirled around Wikileaks, which has been celebrating its 10th birthday by releasing files from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The most insane suggestion was that Pamela Anderson had poisoned Assange after delivering him a Pret lunch at the embassy. That, unsurprisingly, turned out to be nonsense.

But rumors of Assange’s death persisted, thanks to 64-character codes tweeted by Wikileaks, though the tweets were not sent at the flick of a dead man’s switch. They were cryptographic assurances of leaked data, so-called “pre-commitments” designed to ensure files hadn’t been tampered with.

A few hours later, Wikileaks tweeted out that Assange lost his internet:

Wikileaks has not expanded on how the organization discovered Ecuador cut off the internet or what will happen to Assange. It’s kind of surprising Ecuador has done this considering they have helped him so much while the U.S. and the U.K. have sparred with him numerous times.

Assange sought asylum at the embassy in June 2012 to avoid extradition orders to Sweden “to face questioning in a sexual molestation case involving two female Wikileaks supporters.”
