As Twitchy told you, this past Sunday, Wikileaks posted that Julian Assange’s internet connection had “been intentionally severed by a state party.” Tonight, Ecuador has admitted to restricting internet access within its embassy in London:

It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton’s allies in the State Department (yes, we know that’s redundant) are furious over Wikileaks’ email dumps:

Inquiring minds can’t help but want to know: Did the State Department play a role in the Ecuadorian government’s decision? For the record, the State Department denies being involved:

Mark Toner denied WikiLeaks’ suggestions that Secretary John Kerry pressured the Ecuadorian president to sever Julian Assange’s Internet connection. Assange resides in Ecuador’s London embassy, where he sought asylum in 2010 when faced with Swedish rape charges.

“That’s just not true. He didn’t raise that,” Toner said. “There just was no meeting. They didn’t discuss any of this stuff.”

“Our concerns about WikiLeaks, and in part Mr. Assange, are well known, but we did not have any involvement in either shutting down his Internet” or in influencing the Ecuadorian government to do so, Toner added.

But some people find that hard to swallow.

What do you think?

Huh.
