wont happen. UK & Sweden cant extradite for a "political crime" which is what espionage comes under.
Section 6 Extradition may not be granted for a political offence. If the act also constitutes a non-political offence, extradition may be granted for that offence, provided, in the particular case, the act is predominantly of a non-political nature. The first paragraph does not apply where rejection on this ground would be contrary to an international agreement applying between Sweden and the requesting state. (SFS 2003:1158)
3. A person who is extradited may not have the death penalty imposed for the offence. In cases referred to in Section 5 or Section 6, it shall be specially stated that the person extradited may not be punished under a provision concerning offences committed by members of armed forces or for a political offence. The Government shall otherwise prescribe such conditions as are considered necessary. (SFS 1975:292)

I think WL has reconsidered the conditions for the 'insurance file'. I know I would.
Just because Assange is in a legal quagmire, doesn't mean the infrastructure and integrity of WL is seriously threatened.
If they didn't release it after all of the cyber warfare, they won't for his bogus court case.
It will take something more drastic before they release the poison pill.

What they deserve is a medal and commendations for their bravery in a world of terror states and for offering a piece of truth in a world of lies. What the US deserve is to crumble apart and wither away, I hope their economy dies so we can be done with the evil empire, I hope all its closest allies turn against it as it loses power until they have no choice but to cave in. I'm sick of the way they treat their citizens, always dumbing them down with mind numbing media; it's no wonder they sank down towards the bottom on the PISA scores.

This movement isn't going to stop with Julian.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell went so far as to label Assange a high-tech terrorist. "He has done enormous damage to our country and I think he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And if that becomes a problem, we need to change the law," McConnell said on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday Read more: www.time.com... #ixzz17kV8p29s
