Under Investigation, WikiLeaks Founder Hires Top Lawyer

Julian Assange, founder of whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, has hired a top Swedish lawyer in advance of a decision about whether or not he’ll face charges of molestation in the wake of events late last week. Authorities issued an arrest warrant Friday night based on an allegation of rape, but withdrew it Saturday morning. Assange insists the claims are part of a smear campaign to discredit him and his site amidst its deadlock with the Pentagon over the release of classified documents about the U.S. war in Afghanistan.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
