In September 1991, Assange was discovered hacking into the Melbourne master terminal of Nortel, a Canadian multinational telecommunications corporation.[32] The Australian Federal Police tapped Assange's phone line (he was using a modem), raided his home at the end of October[45] and eventually charged him in 1994 with 31 counts of hacking and related crimes.[32] In December 1996, he pleaded guilty to 24 charges ..."


The longstanding US allegation against this self-described journalist is that he attempted ( with Bradass ) to break into a US based computer server.  

US Jurisdiction doesn't appear to be a critical issue for someone who has previously admitted breaking and entering computers in the US and where a prima facie case may exist. Such as the Bradass case.

Moving on the statute of limitations - the Mange ran out the clock on allegations of rape and sexual-assault.  And it may well be the clock has run out on the Bradass affair.
There are further allegations re CIA leaks ' Vault Seven ' material. 
The fact Camp Wikileaks are being so dodgy about this makes their self-described journalist Fuhrer-figure looks guilty...again. 

To sum up - a case against Assmange has been made that all cypherpunks that don't want journalists rummaging through their computers might support. 

As for cypherpunks that don't know Assmange is a totally discredited fascist propagandist by now. Well they must be too stupid to be activists, let alone anarchists.
