U.S. says did not pressure companies on WikiLeaks

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 10 (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday that the U.S. government had not pressured companies to stop working with the WikiLeaks website, which has released sensitive U.S. diplomatic and military documents.

“We have not pressured anybody to do anything,” Holder said at a news conference in San Francisco when asked if the government had tried to influence companies, including (AMZN.O), which quit hosting the WikiLeaks site.
