The US Justice Department, on the back of CIA director Mike Pompeo’s criticisms this week of WikiLeaks, have announced their renewed interest in formally charging Assange and other members of WikiLeaks. The only problem is they haven’t found anything to charge them with.

While the CIA scrambles to defend themselves and the FBI hunts out the likely candidate responsible for the WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 leak – a trove of CIA documents highlighting the intelligence agency’s ability to hack and spy – an important piece of the puzzle remains largely ignored.

WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange has optimized his timing again, releasing the Vault 7 documents that have had Twitter and his mass following contemplating over the last month the exact punch the world governments would likely encounter.
