On Friday, Sep 3, Daily Telegraph reported that Julian Assange admitted that he had consensual sex more than once with a woman who has accused him of molestation.
"I say the same thing I have said the entire time. I have not done anything with these two women that was not completely voluntary from both parts," said Julian Assange.
On Wednesday, Sep 1, Sweden reopened the preliminary investigation into rape charges against him.
Assange also told that he had been warned by Australian intelligence that he could face a campaign to discredit him after leaking the documents but not be sure who was behind it or for what reason.
"Who was behind this, we do not know. Whether that turns out to be a smear campaign done by a couple of people for personal motives or ideological motives, or whether that is larger and involves geopolitical concerns or whether it is a mixture of all those, we do not know," he said.
