With the election growing closer, and the Democrats growing ever more nervous that all their dirty tricks just aren’t getting the job done, and Wikileaks threatening to release damning evidence against Hillary, someone targets Assange in an effort to stop the flow of info.
For many hours, there was some concern as to whether or not he had been assassinated. At a minimum, someone has stopped his ability to access the internet.

WikiLeaks says that founder Julian Assange’s internet access has been cut by an unidentified state actor. Few other details were immediately available.
Assange has been up holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London for more than four years after skipping bail to avoid being extradited over sex crimes allegations.
Julian Assange's internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans.
