Abstract: 

        On June 24, 2020, the United States Department of Justice announced the return by a federal grand jury of a second superseding indictment, charging Julian P. Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. The new indictment does not add any additional counts to the prior 18-count superseding indictment returned against Assange in May 2019. However, it widens the scope of the conspiracy surrounding alleged computer intrusions with which Assange was already charged.
