The Twitter account of Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, disappeared for a short time, the Washington Examiner is reporting.

Twitter users searching for his account, @JulianAssange, had gotten a notice that the “page doesn’t exist.”

The account went down late Sunday evening, but it was not clear why, according to the Examiner. By mid-morning on Monday, it was back up with no explanation about what happened.

U.S. intelligence officials have implicated WikiLeaks in Russia’s attempt to influence the 2016 president elections, The Hill reported.

The officials have expressed “high confidence” that Moscow gave hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta to WikiLeaks, the website said.

Twitter did not immediately return a request for comment, the Examiner said.
