Sen. Ben Sasse said Saturday he was having security issues with government and personal devices following critical comments he made about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange last week, the Hill reports

"[WikiLeaks head] Julian Assange should spend the rest of his life wearing an orange jumpsuit," Sasse said in a statement last Thursday. "He’s an enemy of the American people and an ally to Vladimir Putin.” 

WikiLeaks released a trove of documents last week containing CIA cyber operations information. 

Sasse, a Republican, also questioned the White House's pursuit of Assange in a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. 

"Frankly, it is amazing that I even have to ask this question of the Administration in light of the Intelligence Community’s formal assessment that Mr. Assange’s website is a known outlet for foreign propaganda and in light of Mr. Assange's history of recklessly endangering the lives of Americans through his illegal disclosures," he wrote.
