WikiLeaks says Senate panel seeks interview with founder Assange

Assange’s Senate testimony could ‘destroy conspiracy theory that Russia hacked DNC’ – journalist

WikiLeaks tweeted a picture of a letter signed by Sen.

The letter, from Richard Burr, chairman, and Mark Warner, vice-chairman, respectively of the panel, was sent on 1 August through the U.S. embassy in London.

The self-styled radical transparency group, which USA intelligence believes is a catspaw of Russian intelligence, quoted its legal team to say it is "considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard," presumably meaning on the part of the Senate staff who would conduct the interview.

White House: Omarosa Book 'Riddled with Lies and False Accusations'
The White House is hitting back at former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, claiming her forthcoming anti-Trump book is full of "lies" while dismissing her as "disgruntled".

WikiLeaks has published a letter, apparently from the U.S. senate committee investigating Russian election interference, asking Julian Assange to give evidence. The organization also pointed out that Warner was among 10 senators who demanded in June that Assange's asylum be revoked in violation of worldwide law. Stolen emails, many politically damaging to Clinton, appeared on WikiLeaks in the campaign's final stretch. He spread information about Russia's guiltlessness in Skripal's case.

Assange's claims run contrary to the Senate intelligence committee's findings that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of the DNC. The committee is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Assange has remained sequestered, for the time being, in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been given diplomatic asylum after his controversial website Wikileaks published thousands of confidential defense and diplomatic documents in 2010.

Another showed him walking away from the nightclub, in which Stokes said he was "looking at the night's sky" and talking to God. Stokes denied being out on a "mission" and said what he wanted that evening was a "good night" with his England teammates.

They claim WikiLeaks knowingly acted in concert with Russian intelligence.

Rumors about the relationship between the Wikileaks founder and the former "Baywatch" star and Playboy model have been swirling for months and have drawn the attention of Federal Bureau of Investigation, which said it may want to interview Anderson about her time spent with Assange, The Sun reported. "There's a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, who was shot in the back-murdered-just two weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington".

Assange publicly suggested that Guccifer2.0 was not his source at all. Rich died 12 days after Wikileaks released the emails.

Due in part to its higher level of profitability, Hargreaves Lansdown was able to increase total dividends per share by 38%. Despite the decent results, shares in the company were down three per cent in early trading on Tuesday.

Under Moreno, speculation had been growing over the possibility of Assange being ejected from the embassy as the Ecuadorean government increased pressure, first by suspending his internet and phone access in March then by withdrawing security in May.
