When Ecuador admitted that it cut off Julian Assange's internet connection at its embassy in London, the country's officials said it was their own decision. According to NBC News, though, the US might have something to do with it. American intelligence officials told the publication that the US urged Ecuadorian politicians to stop allowing Assange to do Russia's bidding from within their territory. Assange, as you know, founded WikiLeaks, which has been publishing emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee's computers. The government believes Russia has been orchestrating the cyber attacks and releasing sensitive data to influence the US presidential elections.
