The President of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno said that the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange may leave his refuge in the Embassy of Ecuador in any time, but only subject to all of the rights of the prisoner to the Embassy.
His lawyer Jennifer Robinson has today confirmed Assange is "seriously considering" the the request but explained there would be caveats attached.
Assange's claims run contrary to the Senate intelligence committee's findings that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of the DNC.More news: Flaw in Whatsapp could allow hackers to send fake messages
WikiLeaks said Wednesday that its founder Julian Assange was "considering" a request by a US Senate committee to testify about alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US elections. "We are seriously considering the offer but must ensure Mr Assange's protection is guaranteed".
In the invitation letter, dated August 1, the the Senate Intelligence Committee asks if Assange is "available for a closed interview" at a "mutually agreeable time and location".
WikiLeaks lawyers informed that they were considering the offer, but "testimony must conform to a high ethical standard".
Assange believes that would pave the way for extradition to the United States for the publication of a huge cache of USA diplomatic and military secrets on the WikiLeaks website.More news: China bans 'Winnie the Pooh' film over comparisons to Xi
The source of the Agency claims that Assange may soon be required to leave Ecuador's Embassy in London due to deteriorating health. Those allegations have since been dropped but Assange would be arrested by British police, should he leave the embassy, for breaching bail conditions.
But according to Daily Beast reporting and special prosecutor Robert Mueller, Guccifer2.0 was a fictitious entity created by the GRU, Russian military intelligence.
Twelve Russian military intelligence officers hacked into the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic Party and released tens of thousands of private communications in a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 USA election, according to an indictment announced days before President Donald Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July.More news: Nunes Explains Why Rosenstein Has Not Been Impeached In Leaked Audio
