In follow-up messages posted Tuesday, the group claimed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had personally intervened to ask Ecuador to stop Assange from publishing documents about Clinton. Citing unidentified "multiple U.S. sources," WikiLeaks said the request was made on the sidelines of negotiations that took place last month in Colombia.The statement made no mention of Assange's internet access.If Assange is being cut off from the internet for diplomatic reasons, it might jibe with the politics of Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa, who told the Moscow-backed RT broadcaster on Sept. 30 that he'd prefer Clinton over Trump.Whatever the motives, Assange isn't likely to submit to interference quietly.
