United States asks Assange to front probe into alleged Russian interference

United States asks Assange to front probe into alleged Russian interference”

On Wednesday, WikiLeaks said the Senate letter - dated August 1 - was delivered to Assange via the U.S. embassy in London, but the mission declined to comment when contacted by AFP.

On Twitter, WikiLeaks posted a letter addressed to Assange that it claims the committee sent to the U.S. Embassy in London.

"The committee requests that you make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location", the letter reads.

"According to Moreno, Ecuadorian authorities are now in talks with Assange's lawyers to work out an agreement that would ensure the security of the WikiLeaks' founder "'in line with the norms of worldwide law".

The website said its legal team is "considering the offer but the conditions must conform to a high ethical standard".

Under Moreno, speculation had been growing over the possibility of Assange being ejected from the embassy as the Ecuadorean government increased pressure, first by suspending his internet and phone access in March then by withdrawing security in May.

Pamela Anderson's self-described "romantic connection" with Julian Assange, as reported by Fox News, suddenly spices up the long-running investigation of Wikileaks' connections to Russian interference in the 2016 USA election.

The Swedish investigation has since been dropped but Assange stayed in the embassy, as he still faces arrest by British police for skipping bail six years ago.

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.

Ahead of the 2016 election, WikiLeaks published emails hacked from the Democratic Party and the personal email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman.

The alleged interest comes amid an ongoing investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into alleged collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation to help him secure a victory.
