Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is a storm in a tekopp. There is a simpler explanation: jealous revenge.

One of the two women, an expert on the law on sexual offences through her work, sought out contact with Assange (who she did not know) before he arrived in Sweden. This is evidenced in cached tweets that she sent at the time, now removed - presumably by herself. For instance she heard that Assange would be attending a private crayfish party and sought to get an invitation to it.

To actively seek out contact with someone, and then to engineer an accusation against them says only one thing to me. I say engineer, because there was never a direct accusation made by the woman, but it was reported to the police in such a way that they would have to act.

The cause of the desire for 'revenge' is murkier. But there are several scenarios that do not involve the CIA, the Pentagon or any other sinister organizations.

You can't be me, I'm taken
