2. I absolutely agree with true whistle blowers but I would not put

Assange in this category nor in the category of journalist. He published others discoveries but he also encouraged illegally obtaining information for the purposes of embarrassment, not some need of truth telling but for his own political bias and entertainment. This case is a bit more than just publishing embarrassing materials He also:

Tried to help Manning hack a password

Solicited hacks of Iceland

Identified a vulnerability in a US server and encouraged people to use it

Encouraged people to get a job with CIA for the express purpose to find documents and leak.

This was all before the Russia conspiracy and hunt for Hillary's emails, for which the US government did not go after him because if the truth came out on that they are all screwed. They wanted to control him and that is what all these charges are about. He is not a honorable person trying to find the truth, nor are they honorable or looking for truth by trying to indict him on those charges.
