TIME Managing Editor Rick Stengel interviewed WikiLeaks’s founder today via Skype and, among other things, Assange said he thought Secretary of State Clinton should step down “if it can be shown that she was responsible for ordering U.S. diplomatic figures to engage in espionage in the United Nations.”

UPDATE: On a related note, Marc Ambinder helpfully explains why Clinton’s name was on the cables even though she likely never saw them, and provides some broader context for the longstanding blurred lines between diplomacy and intelligence. (h/t Scherer)
