The move comes after correspondence was released that showed Wikileaks and Donald Trump Jr. conversing during the 2016 election. It was revealed that Wikileaks first pitched Assange as an ambassador as part of their cooperation and alleged coordination with the Trump campaign.

“‘I only responded to a couple messages,’” quoted CNN’s legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin. “It’s not a defense to bank robbery that you only robbed a couple of banks. You don’t have to commit multiple crimes to be guilty of a crime.”

Democrats are still panicking about the plots that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party seem to be cooking up to circumvent the people's vote in November.

Last week's shocking piece in The Atlantic detailed how electors in Pennsylvania could be manipulated to deliver Trump the vote despite ballots to the contrary. After President George W. Bush's campaign convincing the Supreme Court to stop Florida from counting the 2000 election ballots, there is a fear that Trump too could manipulate the courts to get his Supreme Court justices to deliver him a win.
