US Senate Intelligence Committee calls Julian Assange to testify - WikiLeaks

August 8, 2018

"The US Senate Intelligence Committee has requested that persecuted WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange testify before committee staff. The committee is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
In a letter delivered to Assange at his residence in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, committee chairman Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) requested that Assange make himself available for a closed interview “at a mutually agreeable time and location.”

WikiLeaks’ legal team said that they “are considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard.”

Assange fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012, seeking asylum from possible extradition to the US, where he faced indictment under the Espionage Act for publishing leaked government documents. Since his de-facto house arrest in the embassy, WikiLeaks has continued to draw controversy, publishing then-candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails and leaked emails from the Democratic Party’s internal servers in 2016."

My wonder is this bit: Why Ecuadorian Embassy throwing him out?

Isn't that on the bases of his mental issue? (Sorry if that wasn't the case! Please fill me in...)

If so, he's protected altogether in different way, publicly, I thought. By all means, he lost something but won big. What gotta follow is for him to get another secure place to move to, to avoid being killed by all sorts of different ways, such as sniping to chemically killed like those few people in UK did.
