WikiLeaks says Senate panel seeks interview with Assange ZlotoNews

Pamela Anderson, Julian Assange 'Romance' Spices Up Wikileaks Probe

"The U.S. Senate Select Committee request confirms their interest in hearing from Mr Assange", lawyer Jennifer Robinson said in a statement.

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.

Assange's claims run contrary to the Senate intelligence committee's findings that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of the DNC. "We are seriously considering the offer but must ensure Mr Assange's protection is guaranteed".

Committee chairman Richard Burr and vice chairman Mark Warner, who both signed the letter, are yet to comment.

The Senate intelligence committee sent a letter to the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, requesting that he appear to answer questions from lawmakers at a closed-door session.

The self-styled radical transparency group, which US intelligence believes is a catspaw of Russian intelligence, quoted its legal team to say it is "considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard," presumably meaning on the part of the Senate staff who would conduct the interview.

They also sought information about any limits Apple and Google place on developers in collecting data from users' devices. The Committee looks forward to reviewing and analyzing the responses as we consider next steps".

His associate, radio host Randy Credico, said Assange would speak with Congress if they traveled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

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.

Assange was granted political asylum by Ecuador for the goal of avoiding extradition to the U.S., where he is believed to be wanted for leaking government secrets.

In the summer and fall of 2016, WikiLeaks published thousands of emails and documents from the Democratic National Committee's servers and from Hillary Clinton senior aide John Podesta, which were pilfered by Russian intelligence.

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.

The email releases have been linked to the alleged Russian conspiracy to influence the election via fake news and other means.
