Assange has been holed up in London at the Equadorian Embassy for six years. The Equadorian government granted him citizenship for fear of allegations from Australia of sexual misconduct.
Julian has been under investigation by America since 2010.
“A 47-year-old Australian native, Mr. Assange has been under investigation in the U.S. since 2010 when WikiLeaks published classified diplomatic and military material obtained from the U.S. Departments of State and Defense, respectively,” as reports The Washington Times.
During the 2016 election, Wikileaks dripped out more information gathered from the DNC.
Senator Paul sat down with Gateway Pundit’s Cassandra Fairbanks, and “asserted that Assange likely has important information about the hack and that it’s unlikely he would agree to testify without immunity.”
In a tweet, earlier this month, published by WikiLeaks, Senator Burr and the United States Senate Intelligence committee asked Julian Assange, editor of WikiLeaks to give closed-door testimony on the 2016 Russian interference. (Continued below.)
The GW reports:
“Christine Assange, Julian’s mother, has a list of things that she would like to see happen before her son agrees to testify. She told the Gateway Pundit that her wishes include an end to the WikiLeaks grand jury. A dismissal of charges against all WikiLeaks staff. Safe passage for him to a nation where he can receive medical care. And an agreement that there will be no future US extradition requests. She would also like to see the testimony conducted publicly through Skype.” – Gateway Pundit
Furthermore, Rand tells GW, “It’s probably unlikely to happen unless he is given some type of immunity from prosecution,” Senator Paul added.”
