WikiLeaker Leaked Upon

In a bit of irony, (you can't make this stuff up), Julian Assange's lawyers are "crying foul" for someone leaking his police files.

Incriminating police files were published in the British newspaper that has used him as its source for hundreds of leaked US embassy cables.

In a move that surprised many of Mr Assange's closest supporters on Saturday, The Guardian newspaper published previously unseen police documents that accused Mr Assange in graphic detail of sexually assaulting two Swedish women. One witness is said to have stated: "Not only had it been the world's worst screw, it had also been violent."

Bjorn Hurtig, Mr Assange's Swedish lawyer, said he would lodge a formal complaint to the authorities and ask them to investigate how such sensitive police material leaked into the public domain. "It is with great concern that I hear about this because it puts Julian and his defence in a bad position," he told a colleague.

Aside from the possible illegalities involved in leaking these documents, does the term "Sauce for the Goose" come to anyone else's mind?

  1. This exposes the WikiRapist as just another whiny liberal. "OK for me, but not for thee" is their motto.

  2. Yeah. The idea that he would be upset with an illegal leak only when it effects him personally is too rich!
