Assange: New WikiLeaks Releases "Soon to Come"

SUPPORT PROVIDED BY

I interviewed Julian Assange on Monday, April 4 at Ellingham Hall, Norfolk County, U.K. -- a country manor house that is his temporary court-ordered home. We spoke for several hours and covered a wide range of topics. He told me, "WikiLeaks is accelerating its activities with new releases soon to come."

Meanwhile, Assange awaits a mid-July extradition hearing that will help decide whether he faces sexual assault charges in Sweden. Out of picture are his bright blue socks with a yellow crown design. "Crowns of Sweden," he explained. "I walk on them every day."

FRONTLINE's hour-long film "WikiSecrets" will air May 24. It will include interviews with Mr. Assange and many other key players in the WikiLeaks story. View our profile of Pvt. Bradley Manning, accused of leaking more than half a million secret U.S. government documents, here.
