Sweden fights Assange bail as Michael Moore offers to host WikiLeaks
By Jacqui Cheng
Controversial documentary director Michael Moore has offered up his help to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, both in the form of cash and other resources. The offer came as Assange was finally granted bail from a UK prison—pending Sweden’s appeal—on the condition that he obeys a nightly curfew and won’t flee the country.
Moore said in an editorial posted to the Huffington Post that he had offered $20,000 of his own money to help bail out Assange. (The offer was made in a letter sent to the court before law enforcement granted Assange his quasi-freedom on Tuesday.) In addition to the money, Moore said that he also wants to offer up his website, servers, domain names, and "anything else I can do to keep WikiLeaks alive and thriving as it continues its work to expose the crimes that were concocted in secret and carried out in our name and with our tax dollars."
