American prosecutors have obtained a sealed indictment against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose website published thousands of classified US government documents, a USA federal court document showed on Thursday.
He wrote: "To be clear, seems Freudian, it's for a different completely unrelated case, every other page is not related to him, EDVA just appears to have Assange on the mind when filing motions to seal and used his name".
Dwyer went on to write that the charges would "need to remain sealed until Assange is arrested in connection with the charges in the criminal complaint and can therefore no longer evade or avoid arrest and extradition in this matter".
Dwyer is also assigned to the WikiLeaks case.
"That was not the intended name for this filing", he said.
An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment.
The court filing, written by assistant United States attorney Kellen Dwyer, did not specify the nature of any charges against Assange. Investigators also had explored whether WikiLeaks could face criminal liability for the more recent revelation of sensitive Central Intelligence Agency cyber-tools.
WikiLeaks found itself at the center of the probe after publishing internal emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta ahead of the election.
"The news that criminal charges have apparently been filed against Mr Assange is even more troubling than the haphazard manner in which that information has been revealed", Barry Pollack told the newspaper. Many traditional outlets routinely publicize government secrets.

The Crown Prince said: "We have assigned departments concerned with the families of the martyrs to fulfill their requirements". Ankara insists the orders for the killing came from the highest levels of the Saudi government, but not King Salman.
"Prosecuting someone for publishing truthful information would set a awful and unsafe precedent", Pollack said. It was filed in the case of a man named Seitu Sulayman Kokayi. He is known to follow court filings closely.
His father-in-law, according to the filing, has been convicted of terrorist acts.
"The prosecutor on the order is not from Mr. Mueller's team and WikiLeaks has never been contacted by anyone from his office", WikiLeaks said.
The filing had been sealed until early September, though by itself it attracted little notice.
Pollack said he did not know if Assange has been charged.
Julian Assange makes his way back indoors after speaking to the media from the balcony of the Embassy Of Ecuador on May 19, 2017.
When he first sought asylum in the embassy, he was facing possible extradition to Sweden in a sex crimes case.
It remains unclear both if and how Assange could face charges in the US state, Currently, he resides under political asylum inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in Knightsbridge, London.
Legal analysts said the error was likely to have been caused by prosecutors copying and pasting from sealed documents outlining charges against Assange.
