WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can leave Ecuador's London embassy, where he's been living since 2012, Ecuadorean President Lenín Moreno said Thursday.

In a radio interview, Moreno said he had received sufficient written guarantees from the British government that Assange would not be extradited to any country where he would face the death penalty, according to the Associated Press.

However, Moreno said he would not force Assange out.

Assange has said he fears being charged by the U.S for his role in leaking sensitive government information.

Of course he can leave; all he has to do is jump over the railing...

1. Interesting that he has gone from someone wanted

for an alleged sex crime in Sweden to someone who could be facing the death penalty somewhere.

4. In case you wondered:

UK and Ecuador Conspire To Deliver Julian Assange to US Authorities

In mid-June of 2018 an International Monetary Fund delegation made the organization’s first trip to Quito in many years in an effort to review the problem. A report by J. P. Morgan released immediately after the IMF’s mission suggested that it was now likely that the Moreno government would seek a loan from the IMF. The regime had previously sought to avoid such a move, because it would create potential domestic political difficulties. Seeking an IMF loan would make Ecuador more dependent than before on political support from the United States.

On the heels of that IMF visit, Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Ecuador in June and delivered a blunt political message. An unnamed White House official issued a statement confirming that Pence had “raised the issue of Mr. Assange” with Moreno and that the two governments had “agreed to remain in close coordination on potential next steps going forward.”

7. And the henchmen can put drump in the same dark dungeon with stupid assange.

But since it costs so much to keep these people alive, why not just dismember them, give them an acid bath and pack whatever remains remain (I like that!) in some suitcases to ship to SA.

8. Trump wants to offer him a Cabinet position or ambassadorship.

Perhaps Secretary of Propaganda?
