President Donald Trump responded to the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange today saying he has “been seeing what’s happened with Assange” and what happens next is up to Attorney General William Barr.

Surprisingly, Trump told reporters he knew "nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing.”

Whether Trump meant he 'knew nothing' about the organization or the process of what will happen to Assange remains to be clarified.

The president comment came hours after police arrested Assange in London.

The Wikileaks founder has been residing in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since 2012.

Ecuador awarded Assange political asylum after becoming a fugitive from a British arrest warrant for breaching bail conditions in 2012.

In November 2010, Sweden issued an international arrest warrant for Assange over allegations of sexual assault and rape.

In February, Disgraced lawyer Michael Cohen alleged the president knew that Roger Stone coordinated with whistleblowing agency Wikileaks ahead of dumping the Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails during the 2016 election which saw Hillary Clinton lose to Trump.

"I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat. He was a presidential candidate who knew that Roger Stone was talking with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of DNC emails," Cohen prepared remark to say.

Stone was arrested in January on charges of witness tampering, making false statements and obstruction, according to an announcement from the special counsel’s office.

According to Mueller’s indictment, Stone spoke to senior Trump campaign officials about Wikileaks “and information it might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton campaign.
