Last week, the co-founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange was arrested by British Police after spending nearly 7 years holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
The 47 year old is now in custody waiting to see if the situation he predicted would happen, the conspiracy that sexual assault allegations were all a ruse to get him to the US to face charges he helped leak confidential military documents... would come true.
Today we speak to two journalists, one of who has sat down face to face with Assange in that embassy, to find out what got him kicked out of his safe haven to finally face the music.
