Well Wikileaks aren't exactly knights in shining armour are they, especially Assange. The main source for the US documents that Wikileaks obtained was a traitor, because they were serving in uniform at the time and delivered classified information to a foreign source. If they believed that the material showed illegal actions, they had other options, outside of their command chain, open to them within the US govt, that they could've and should've taken. The Poms probably have been furiously tapping all of the EU govts phones and networks for the last 3 years (BREXIT) and the French and Germans since the telegraph and phone were invented. All govts have secret ops going that would be highly embarrassing if details ever saw the light of day.
