    Back in October Ecuador temporarily cut Assange's internet access at their London embassy where Assange is being given asylum to avoid being arrested for a warrant for sexual assault. They did so because they did not want him messing with the U.S. Presidential election. Now that the U.S. federal intelligence agencies say they have proof that Russia hacked the DNC and other parts of the election and provided the leaked emails to Assange to release... despite Assange saying he did not get the emails from them. Is there a chance that the U.S. could provide proof to Ecuador and Ecuador could kick Assange out on the street to get arrested?

    Is there a statute of limitations for the charges on Assange? Does Assange think he will be able to stay in the embassy until the charges go away?

    Could they, yes. Will they, not likely. BTW the suppose victim in the sexual assault has recanted but the prosecutor won't drop the charges.

    Good question. I don't know the answer. However, Assange must really be afraid of those Swedish rape, molestation, and unlawful coercion charges against him to spend years secluded in a foreign embassy.

    Um, no. He's asked for a guarantee that if he returns to Sweeden to answer the charges that the Sweeds won't turn him over to the Americans. The Sweeds said "I can't promise we won't do that."

    The US wants him in custody, and answering questions, and if they have their way doing life in the electric chair.

    Unfortunately for your delusions, U.S. federal intelligence agencies haven't proved jack shit.

    Anyone should be afraid of a national government that is out to get you.

    The Wikileaks guy looks like the typical afro/brown, DEMOCRAT rapist in the USA, no doubt he cannot control his erection as the establishment who said Crooked Hillary would be President indicated. :p!
