U.S. President Donald Trump says he has no knowledge of the website WikiLeaks, after the whistleblowing site’s founder Julian Assange was arrested in Britain. The 47-year-old had been living in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012 but was ejected Thursday and taken into custody. Assange has long claimed that he could face prosecution in the U.S. over the publishing of confidential government information. As Henry Ridgwell reports, the arrest sets up a complex legal battle.
