US Senate Intelligence Committee Calls Julian Assange To Testify

The letter, purportedly signed by Sens. Richard Burr, and the ranking Democrat, Virginia Sen.

The WikiLeaks legal team said they are "considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard".

WikiLeaks has published a letter, apparently from the U.S. senate committee investigating Russian election interference, asking Julian Assange to give evidence.

There have also been reports that Ecuador and Britain have reached, or are about to reach, a deal on ending the asylum for Assange.

The 29-page indictment lays out how, months before Americans went to the polls, Russians schemed to break into key Democratic email accounts, including those belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, the Democratic National Committee, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

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.

"Neither Robert Mueller's team nor the US Senate Intelligence Committee has bothered to contact WikiLeaks or me, in any manner, ever", Assange wrote on Twitter in September a year ago.

Assange and WikiLeaks played a key role in the interference of the 2016 campaign by nefarious Russian actors. Days after announcing a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Rich's killer, Assange brought up Rich when discussing the risks whistleblowers take to expose corruption. "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".

Human RIghts Watch has called on the United Kingdom government to allow Assange to leave his embassy home without the threat of extradition to the U.S., where he could face life in prison.

His associate, radio host Randy Credico, said Assange would speak with Congress if they traveled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
