I see him as human and I see this as a very human mistake and he shouldn't be hanged for this. If Putin used a middle man, Assange would have no way of knowing. That doesn't make him guilty, just makes him fallible (which every human is) - especially this, we'd all fall for.
Hypothetically, if what you say is true. Why is that wrong?
