A little info about the alleged sexual assault.
Assange seems like a douche, but this scenario is straight from the CIA handbook of dirty tricks. And it looks like pretty much everyone involved knows the rape charges won't stick, they are just a ploy to get him out in the open so he can be snatched up by the US and charged under the Espionage Act.
He's fucked though. They need to make an example of him. And if there is one thing upon which almost all world leaders can agree is that their lies need to be kept safely from the general public.
I wouldn't be surprised if Ecuador turns him over to Sweden and he's rotting in extraordinary rendition within a year.
