WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Alleges Smear Campaign On “The TODAY Show”

On Friday, WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange — No. 3 on TIME’s list of the year’s Most Influential People — appeared in an interview with The TODAY Show’s Matt Lauer, where he argued that “Something is wrong in Sweden and the US” regarding the manner in which investigations against him and his website are being conducted.

“Where is the evidence?” Assange asked.

For those not in the know, Assange’s website is accused of leaking thousands of top-secret US documents, enraging officials in the federal government.
