    ECUADOR ~ Strips Julian Assange of Asylum

    The Intercept earlier cited a source close to the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry and the president's office as saying

    that Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno was involved in talks with the UK and was close to finalizing an agreement

    to hand over the WikiLeaks’ founder to the British government within the next several weeks.

    From what I've read the President said, Assange will have to leave the Embassy eventually,though no imminent removal is planned, as its a very complex situation and no solution is in sight.

    Did you actually fucking read it?

    It basically says "Ecuador isn't doing anything".

    You call that news?

    In other headlines:

    "Sun Rises".

    "Bears shit in woods".

    etc. etc.

    I don't recall anyone who could make it happen saying that he was.

    THAT would be news.

    (And it would be in the original thread, not another one of fuckwit's clickbait efforts).

    It will come as no surprise to anyone that the little Putin stooge was trying to run off to hide in Russia - probably sharing a flat with Ed Snowden - before his plans were thwarted by the arrest warrant.

    Perhaps he could do a deal with Mueller and get immunity in return for admitting his role in Russian interference in the US election.

    Julian Assange planned to leave the U.K. and seek refuge in Russia as authorities closed in on him, according to a leak of WikiLeaks data.
    “I, Julian Assange, hereby grant full authority to my friend, Israel Shamir, to both drop off and collect my passport, in order to get a visa,” Assange wrote to the Russian consulate in London in a letter dated November 30, 2010. The letter is part of a trove of WikiLeaks emails, financial records, secretly recorded footage and other documents leaked to the Associated Press.

    However, in a statement on Twitter, WikiLeaks said Assange did not write the letter in question or apply for a Russian visa, and said a former associate of Assange was responsible for the document.
    AP said it showed the documents to former WikiLeaks associates and verified details such as bank accounts and telephone numbers to check the authenticity of the files.
    On the same day that he reportedly sent his letter to the Russians, Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for Assange, who was wanted in Sweden on charges of rape and sexual assault.
    In 2012, Assange skipped bail to seek asylum in Ecuador’s London embassy, where he has remained ever since.
    In June this year, a London court ruled that a British arrest warrant for Assange is still valid. Though the Swedish charges have now been dropped, Assange still faces arrest for breaching his bail conditions in the U.K.
    Assange’s relationship with Russia will likely be of interest to the U.S. The FBI claims Russian intelligence gave WikiLeaks stolen emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman and other Democratic figures ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

    I do not know much about this topic (as Harry obviously knows a lot), just seeing this (not sure whether it is allowed to place it here):

    Hillary Clinton used an unsecured Blackberry INSIDE Russia while Robert Mueller was FBI Director

    NEW EVIDENCE proves that Hillary Clinton used her personal cell phone inside Russia as Secretary of State, exposing her phone and private email server to extreme risk of hacking by Russian intelligence agencies in mid-October 2009, just 10 months into her 4-year term. Clinton would later lie to the public and the FBI about her security practices in Russia, after apparently forgetting that this photo ever existed.

    The archived photo, taken during Secretary of State Clinton’s first official trip to Moscow, shows Hillary talking into what appears to be a rectangular-shaped, black-on-silver Blackberry smartphone. Her awkward hand position–with the length of her hand concealing most of the phone, and fingers wrapped around the top–could have been an attempt to conceal the device from being photographed. The Russian alphabet lettering in the background and caption accompanying the photo stating that Hillary had “traveled to Moscow” leave little doubt that this photo was taken inside Russia:


    Although it was initially published in a mainstream media outlet, there is no indication that the FBI ever knew of this photo’s existence at the time, while Robert Mueller was FBI Director, or later on, while then-FBI Director James Comey and Agent Peter Strzok were supervising the Clinton emails case.

    This photo started the investigation, but the Russia photo could finish it.

    This iconic photo of Hillary using a Blackberry on a military plane in 2011 prompted a State Department Freedom of Information Act official–but not Mueller’s FBI–to inquire about whether Hillary was using a government-issued device:

    'arry will be along questioning not the "evidence" just the publisher.


    US can spy on journalists domestically using FISA warrants, declassified guidelines show

    "Newly declassified Department of Justice memos show guidelines for the US government spying on journalists and their sources using FISA warrants – the same method used to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Two documents reveal the rules the FBI would have to follow in obtaining warrants to spy on reporters under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), implicitly confirming the existence of such cases. The documents were obtained as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University.


    A March 19, 2015 memo by then-Attorney General Eric Holder specifies that the FBI needs to refer surveillance applications against “known media entities” and “known members of the media” to the AG himself, his deputy or, in certain cases, the assistant attorney general of the National Security Division of the DOJ, for review.
    This means that Holder and his successor Loretta Lynch, former DAG Sally Yates, and former AAG John P. Carlin all had knowledge of any FISA warrants taken out against members of the media under the Obama administration. The individuals with that authority in the current administration are AG Jeff Sessions, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, and AAG John C. Demers.

    Freedom of the Press Foundation and the Knight First Amendment Institute have reacted to the revelation by asking if the current government is spying on journalists. The Obama administration has been accused of spying on reporters in the past, though not of using FISA warrants to do so.
    While the mainstream media may have reasons for concern, given that relations between them and President Donald Trump can be charitably described as hostile, the rules laid out in the memos suggest it is highly likely that both the Trump and the Obama administration snooped on journalists they considered “foreign agents” – and anyone they might have been in contact with.

    You can safely assume that pretty-much any RT reporter can easily be under surveillance under these guidelines,” investigative journalist Max Blumenthal told RT.

    “I always assume I’m under surveillance when I’m abroad,” Blumenthal said, but the newly revealed FBI rules “provide the basis for government officials, including the president, to obtain private communications of reporters operating domestically.”


    The FISA court cannot be counted on to curb government spying, Blumenthal added, noting that it is a “rubber-stamp” institution that approves something like 98 percent of applications. The DOJ could easily get a warrant to spy on RT journalists solely on the basis of the network’s status under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). RT and Sputnik were the only foreign media outlets the DOJ demanded register under FARA until Tuesday, when it was reported that similar request was made of the China Global Television Network (CTNG) and the news agency Xinhua.
    In the most infamous recent case, the court authorized – and extended three times – a surveillance application against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and everyone he was in contact with, based on the “dodgy Steele Dossier,” Blumenthal said.
    The FISA application against Page was the subject of the ‘Nunes memo,’ made public in February. In the document, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-California) accused the Obama DOJ and FBI of abusing the FISA process by misleading the court about the origin and authorship of the dossier – compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign through the Washington, DC firm Fusion GPS.

    On Monday, Trump ordered the declassification of previously redacted portions of the FISA application against Page dated July 2017, as well as a number of other FBI and DOJ documents. The release of those documents is still pending.

    Who knows where the ex-MI5 guy got his info, sexed up info from a certain Russian spy who lived in Salisbury, perchance. Silenced by some 3 letter western agency?

    Why wouldn't you surveil "journalists" who are really foreign intelligence operatives?

    You know, like all those RT c u n t s for example.
