The U.S. government has charged the Wikileaks founder with conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defense secrets. The charges stem from one of the largest leaks of classified information in U.S. history, disclosing tens of thousands of reports regarding the war in Afghanistan. The disclosure, which occurred between 2009 and 2011, included unfiltered diplomatic cables that potentially endangered the safety of confidential sources. . The leak also included significant activity reports related to the war in Iraq and information regarding Guantanamo Bay. According to the latest DOJ filing, Assange is expected to plead guilty and be sentenced to 62 months of time already served, thus avoiding U.S. imprisonment. .
