Julian Assange will ‘immediately’ be ejected from embassy to face possible prosecution: Glen Greenwald report

Published

on

Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange will be “immediately” forced out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, according to a new report from close Assange ally Glenn Greenwald.

Greenwald reports that the president of Ecuador traveled to London on Friday ostensibly to give a speech—but actually to finalize negotiations on Assange’s fate.

“The concealed, actual purpose of the President’s trip is to meet with British officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection of Julian Assange, in place since 2012, eject him from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, and then hand over the WikiLeaks founder to British authorities,” he wrote.

Assange has been blocked from the internet and unable “to communicate with the outside world” three months ago.

Greenwald cites reporting from Russia state media on the topic and argues that Ecuador’s new president is a stooge for Western governments who has “shown himself willing to submit to threats and coercion from the UK, Spain and the U.S.”

Greenwald argues that Assange’s eventual prosecution could pave the way for the prosecution of American journalists who wil not stand uop for Assange because of they are “consumed with hatred for Assange due to personal reasons, professional jealousies, and anger over the role they believed he played in 2016 in helping Hillary Clinton lose.”

"A lot of the coverage of me was quite unfair," Palin said. "I hope that they will treat her fairly, but at the same time, no kid gloves ... the American voter wants to know that we have the most capable people running and who will be elected, regardless of gender, regardless of race."
