It is unlikely we can get him for espionage either. He didn't contract the flaming PFC to get that info. The flaming PFC contacted him after he stole it. So the most we can get him for is receiving stolen government property. We can hang Manning though. And we should. What he committed was treason.

I’m not sure the espionage case is quite that clear-cut. Assange runs a website that expressly solicits Americans with high clearance to steal and transmit classified information into their hands. That sounds like espionage to me.
Whether they requested this specific information beforehand doesn’t seem relevant when they have issued a general request for any and all classified information.
