WikiLeaks' Assange (Again) Walks Out of Interview After Rape Inquiries

Media

After his release on bail from custody, WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange met with ABC News' Jim Sciutto after the reporter inquired about specific details of the ongoing sexual assault investigation of Assange in Sweden. Assange refused to answer the questions, opting instead to walk off the interview set, calling Sciutto a "tabloid schmuck."

In a similar scenario, Assange abruptly ended an interview with CNN in October after the reporter began inquiring about the rape allegations against him. At the time, Assange insisted the interview focus solely on his organization's release of numerous classified U.S. government documents regarding the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but when questions turned to a personal nature, Assange walked away.
