    Ecuador traded Julian Assange for a loan from the International Monetary Fund, which can only be handed out with the approval of Washington, John Shipton, the WikiLeaks co-founder’s father, has said.

    “Ecuador doesn’t have its own currency. It uses the US dollar,” Shipton told 60 Minutes Australia.

    You can’t get an IMF loan unless the United States approves it – upon agreement to remove Julian from the Embassy.

    In late February, Ecuador has reached a $4.2 billion staff-level financing deal with the IMF to keep its struggling economy afloat. Such staff-level agreements can only happen if they are greenlighted by the Washington-based lender’s executive board.

    Less than two months later, Ecuador’s president Lenin Moreno revoked Assange’s political asylum. The publisher and journalist was detained by the UK police, which dragged him out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He had been holed up there for almost seven years fearing extradition to the US for publishing evidence of its war crimes and shady policies on his whistleblowing project WikiLeaks.

    RT’s Ruptly video agency was the only outlet present to capture the arrest on video. Shipton commented on the footage describing the “terrible” effect that the pressure has had on his son. “I’m 74, he looks as old as me. He’s 47.”

    Assange got railroaded but he did piss a lot of very powerful criminals off. The world is a mafia.

    Well one thing is certain. He's at least lucky that Hillary's not president or he'd either be in Guantanamo or dead already.
