An affidavit detailing the alleged crimes of Julian Assange was unsealed Monday, revealing more about what investigators knew regarding the WikiLeaks founder’s communications with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning.

Assange, 47, was arrested Thursday at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in connection to a charge in the U.S. of conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network in 2010.

The article goes on to state the following:

FBI special agent Megan Brown wrote in the 26-page affidavit filed in December 2017 Assange and Manning allegedly tried to gain access to the Pentagon network, but “it remains unknown whether Manning and Assange were successful in cracking the password.”

The affidavit also alleged the Taliban exploited the WikiLeaks disclosures to put U.S. allies in danger, citing a New York Times article headlined, “Taliban Study WikiLeaks to Hunt Informants.” It also said the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, showed that the terrorist was actively seeking information contained in the WikiLeaks disclosures and that al Qaeda was providing him with information from the leaked Afghanistan war reports. The Afghanistan war reports also contained specifics on improvised explosive device techniques and countermeasures espoused by the U.S. that “the enemy could use these reports to plan future lED attacks,” the affidavit said.
