Not the same issue as Assange of course, unless, as Assange claims, this too is the long arm of the US secretly trying to get whistleblowers extradited. I'm not sure that's the case here, though; I think the Swedish rape allegations have merit, and unlike Snowden, I don't think Assange has broken any US laws for which he can be extradited; he's just doing journalist work. Sloppily and with grandstanding megalomania, perhaps, but that's not illegal and thus no basis for extradition.
There is a sealed indictment of Assange in US district court that was inadvertently leaked when some documents were improperly redacted. 
There were later reports based on chat logs that Assange solicited or participated in hacking attempts to obtain email documents during the 2016 political campaign.
Active solicitation of or participation in illegal hacking is a crime in US law and there is no exception for 'journalists'.
I'm no expert in Swedish law, I trust their legal system, and the legal system in the UK to respond to the demands of the EAW
> and unlike Snowden, I don't think Assange has broken any US laws for which he can be extradited;
If he could, the U.S. could have just as easily extradited him from the UK
They dropped the investigation and the arrest warrant, not the charges. The investigation can still be reopened and he can still be questioned and charged if he returns to Sweden before the statutes of limitations run out.
Sorry if I didn’t use the right terminology.
We need to be more vigilent, more aware, stronger and never forget.
