This seems to be a reasonably good summing-up of events so far.
that the Embassy would not confirm Julian Assange’s whereabouts, or
even if he was still alive.
WikiLeaks Just DUMPED EVERYTHING – This is HUGE – Historic Activity by Wikileaks
17 October, 2016
NOTICE: This is a developing story, it is being actively updated as information comes available. Please check back for updates. Last Updated 12:02AM 10/18 GMT (8:02 PM Eastern United States)
UPDATE: 12:02AM 10/18 (08:02PM EST) Wikileaks Tweets however, the justice3assange.com website does not mention the recent decision by the Swedish Supreme Court. Still no confirmation from Wikileaks or any other source that Julian Assange in still at the Ecuadorian Embassy in the UK.
With WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the news we're seeing a lot of errors. Check the facts: http://justice4assange.com/
UPDATE 9:24 PM GMT (5:24 PM EST) Wikileaks finally releases Podesta 10 – 16 Horus Late
RELEASE: The Podesta Emails Part 10 https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/?q=&mfrom=&mto=&title=¬itle=&date_from=&date_to=&nofrom=¬o=&count=50&sort=6#searchresult …#HillaryClinton #imWithHer #PodestaEmails #PodestaEmails10
UPDATE 8:52 PM GMT (4:52PM EST) Wikileaks confirms only that Julian Assange’s Internet was disconnected. Julian Assange has been without access to the Internet for 28 hours.
We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange's internet access Saturday, 5pm GMT, shortly after publication of Clinton's Goldman Sachs speechs.
UPDATE 4:54PM GMT (12:54PM EST) Information circulating that suggests there are more members of @Wikileaks impacted. Not just Assange at the Embassy. Wikileaks has someone still posting.
UPDATE 3:59PM GMT (11:59AM EST) It appears Wikileaks has signalled all operatives to take measures to protect themselves. Guccifer 2.0 has indicated he is ready for the next release. Looks like Podesta 10 is still coming, but possibly just late.
Also developing story, RT Media’s Bank Accounts Closed in the UK (Suspected close ties to Wikileaks? or Propaganda we don’t know, will start new article on that story soon.)
i'm here and ready for new releases. already changed my location thanks @wikileaks for a good job!
UPDATE 3:35PM GMT (11:35AM EST): Wikileaks has missed its own deadline to post next release of Podesta Emails. London Police still refuse to comment, Embassy still refuses to confirm if Julian Assange is on the property. Wikileaks Communications channels are completely silent. Wikileaks Website is still intermittent, reason unknown.
UPDATE 2:44PM GMT (10:44PM EST): Associated Press reports Embassy refuses to confirm Assange is still on the property. Local London Police refuse to comment.
From time to time Wikileaks creates what are called “Insurance Files”. These files are released into the wild using a Torrent. A Torrent is a distributed file sharing technology that allows the downloader to become the host. It is a way to get data out without sending it from a central source. It is impossible for any government to stop a Torrent without severely restricting every citizen in the effort.
Through the entire history of Wikileaks, Julian Assange has never released the keys to decrypt an Insurance file, until now. As the community wonders what Wikileaks means by its posts, information warriors have already decrypted and analyzed portions of the 88GB Insurance File. Folks! Based on our early analysis, John Kerry is likely going to prison.
About eight hours before this article was written Wikileaks released three separate keys for an Insurance File. It is believed by the community of Wikileaks insiders that this was the result of a “Dead Man Switch”. This is an action that Julian Assange must take periodically to prevent an automatic tweet which releases information. We have no information to substantiate these rumors.
This means that not only is Wikileaks releasing a portion of the 88 Gigabytes of data, they are releasing it without placing it on their website. Wikileaks called the Tweets “pre-commitments”. It is interesting that the three “pre-commitment” keys released are concerning the UK, Ecuador, and John Kerry. All of which are parties involved in Julian Assange’s current situation at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
John Kerry has threatened the Ecuadorian President with "grave consequences for Equador" if Assange is not silenced @StoneColdTruth
The following phone call was recorded two hours before the reports of a possible raid on the Embassy. The person who shared it has restricted the ability to share it here is the link.
Reddit has created a Mega Thread regarding these claims, which occurred AFTER the Julian Assange proof of life video.
This was about an hour after a news article was published in Ecuador. That article stated that Julian Assange’s appeal had failed and an Arrest Warrant would not be removed. Article is in Spanish
No English based news agencies have reported on the most recent development related to the Swedish Arrest Warrant.
Roger Stone Tweeted a few minutes later after the above Tweet was posted.
Reports the Brits storm the Ecuadorian Embassy tonite while Kerry demands the UK revoke their diplomatic status so Assange can be seized
This could be related to negotiations between those parties and the freedom on Julian Assange. Also, John Kerry recently threatened Ecuador if they did not silence Assange. It appears there is something more going on, but currently, no one is talking.
We are analyzing the keys provided in the Tweets against the Insurance Files. As we know more we will make as much information about this as we can available, without jeopardizing anyone’s safety.
Just under an hour before this article was written Wikileaks tweeted:
We are not sure if this is related to the keys for the Insurance Files or not. We will update you as soon as we know more.
Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.
6:33 PM - 17 Oct 2016
Normally we would link to the Tweets, however, due to the nature of the current situation we have provided images of those Tweets.
We can only confirm that Julian Assange has only been disconnected from the Internet.
Finally, our technical experts have asked us to add a clarification. There are a lot of people claiming that these are not keys, but instead only the hash of the plain text. They clearly do not understand Encryption. A hash is used to validate the authenticity of the sender against the sender’s public key in a PKI infrastructure.
These files were not encrypted using PKI, they were encrypted using multi-key overlays, with multiple keys per file section. In other words, these Hex Keys decrypt the portion of the files that include information about the subject mentioned in the Tweets.
Youtube Video showing caller attempting to determine if Assange is still at the Embassy and if he is still alive: “I am sorry I can’t talk about that.” was the response he received
