Whether you think Julian Assange is a messenger of truth and justice, a dangerous enemy of the United States, or a pawn of the Russian government, there’s no question that he has played a significant role in the 2016 election. With several damning releases, Assange’s WikiLeaks has raised serious questions about the Democratic primaries and Hillary Clinton’s character.

Now, with more releases promised, Assange is claiming that a state actor has cut his link to the internet.

“Julian Assange’s internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party. We have activated the appropriate contingency plans,” the site said on Twitter Monday.

Along with that tweet, WikiLeaks also sent out three strange messages, each of them addressed to a different “state actor.”:

pre-commitment 1: John Kerry 4bb96075acadc3d80b5ac872874c3037a386f4f595fe99e687439aabd0219809

pre-commitment 2: Ecuador

pre-commitment 3: UK FCO f33a6de5c627e3270ed3e02f62cd0c857467a780cf6123d2172d80d02a072f74

Those familiar with the underground tech community speculated that the numbers could be a kind of “dead man’s switch,” intended to leak files in the event of Assange’s death. This would also correlate with WikiLeaks’ mention of “contingency plans.” Furthermore, it would indicate that either the site isn’t sure which of these three possible actors is responsible for severing Assange’s internet access or that all three are involved in the plot together.

After identifying Russia as sponsoring the recent hacks, U.S. officials promised publicly to respond in kind. Could this strike against Assange and WikiLeaks be part of that retaliation? Would that suggest that U.S. officials have hard proof linking Putin with the site? Or would this simply be an attempt to flush out any hidden relationships?

One thing is certain, this story is going to get more interesting before it’s all said and done with. Assange has said he’s sitting on information even more explosive than he’s released thus far, and what he’s released thus far is already extremely revealing. If any of that information makes President Obama look bad, there’s no telling how far Barry will go to keep a lid on it. He’s not about to let anyone damage his precious legacy this close to the finish line. A bunch of suckers still think he was a great president! Gotta keep it that way.
