WikiLeaks is reminding President Trump of the time he said “I love WikiLeaks”, amid reports that his administration is planning to bring charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

The official WikiLeaks Twitter account shared the short video clip from October of 2016 on Friday.

 

On Friday, it was reported that the United States is preparing charges against Assange.

U.S. officials familiar with the matter said prosecutors have found a way to move forward, after struggling to determine whether the First Amended protected Assange from prosecution.

The Justice Department’s investigation of WikiLeaks can be traced back to 2010, after thousands of U.S. government files stolen by former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning appeared on the website.

Trump’s comment about WikiLeaks was made at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania last year, in reference to a leak of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“I love WikiLeaks,” he said at the rally. “It’s amazing how nothing is secret today when you talk about the Internet.”
