Rep. Peter King, the ranking member of the Committee on Homeland Security, is joining the charge against WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange due to the ongoing release of some 250,000 internal documents from the U.S. Department of State. King backed Attorney General Eric Holder’s plan to prosecute Assange under the Espionage Act, saying that WikiLeaks was damaging “our national interests in fighting the war on terror” and undermining “the very safety of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
