Ecuador loosens controls on Julian Assange:
Assange considering testifying before US Senate Intelligence Committee
https://edition.cnn.com/2018/08/09/uk/j ... index.html

Assange already flipped a month ago about Russia controlling Wikileaks. That's how the USA indicted the Russians who hacked the documents that appeared on Wikileaks. :lol: :lol: :lol:

However you missed the best bits of the deal...... " Assange has been ordered by the Ecuadorian government to steer clear of any and all political issues. In addition, Assange needs to keep the bathroom he uses at the embassy clean and take care of his cat, according to a memo on the Ecuadorean website Codigo Vidrio.

The memo warned that the embassy retains to right to seize any item of Assange’s equipment or ask British authorities to do so on its behalf.

I'm telling you guys.

Sure Assange will head for where they will let him in, especially if they have enough to eat and flush toilets.

But he really wants the USA.

I'm more concerned for his cat, Michi, which lives at the embassy. I can imagine Assange's plea bargain somehow includes the cat. I'm sort of OK with that. If the British authorities promise to let a UK Assange fan take care of his cat, then Assange may be a bit more open in discussing Russian control of Wikileaks , with little cost to the UK DPP. :D

Assange's Cat / Counter kittygation

Post by Matthew Ellard » Sun Oct 21, 2018 4:38 am

The news isn't good for Julian Assange's cat. Mr Assange has launched a court case against the Ecuadorian ambassador claiming it was unfair that he, Assange, had to have regular showers and look after his cat, which also lives at the embassy.

Julian Assange sues over 'inhuman' conditions, 'denigrating' cat obligations in Ecuadorean embassy
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-10-20/ ... s/10399652

The Ecuadorians have cut off all Assange's communications and internet again. They will ask him to leave the building if he continues with the litigation, so they can seek privacy with their own legal team. :D

Saudi Arabia has offered to send a fifteen member "Julian Assange Removal Team" however, the Ecuadorians will probably ask London Metropolitan Police to remove Julian Assange and take him to remand to stand trial for absconding bail.

It is unlikely his cat will be allowed to join Assange in Reading Gaol (Remand wing) :lol:

(In reality, this is all a show for Assange to save face, and he has probably already done a deal with the USA to give evidence about the Russians taking control of Wikileaks)

Deep state apparatchiks whose lies were exposed by Snowden, Assange, and Manning, should not escape prosecution:

If you were to mimic Fox's claim that the "Deep State" was a cabal of government employees, who went against their elected government's orders then you would be claiming Snowden was a member of the "Deep State" ........but you don't do that do you? That's how pathetic you Fox fans are. :lol: :lol:

Not sure I agree with this whole article. Erdogan has probably imprisoned journalists who he thinks collaborated with the coup attempt of his democratically-elected government, while General al-Sisi in Egypt has imprisoned those who opposed his military coup of Egypt's democratically-elected government, for example.
