Assange arrest a ‘priority’ – US attorney general

US attorney general Jeff Sessions was asked in a press conference whether it was a priority for him to arrest Mr Assange. He said: “We are going to step up our effort and already are stepping up our efforts on all leaks. “This is a matter that’s gone beyond anything I’m aware of. We have professionals that have been in the security business of the United States for many years that are shocked by the number of leaks and some of them are quite serious. “So yes, it is a priority. We’ve already begun to step up our efforts and whenever a case can be made, we will seek to put some people in jail.”
