Fish and Guests Stink After Seven Years

British police arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday, after the South American nation decided to revoke the political asylum that had given him sanctuary for almost seven years.
There have been reports for years that the Ecuadorians were peeved because they felt that Assange was an ungrateful prick who refused to follow basic rules. He had the balls to sue Ecuador because, among other things, they allegedly were tired of his being a slob.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman says Russia wants Julian Assange’s rights to be observed following his arrest.

Shortly after Assange’s arrest in London, Dmitry Peskov told reporters that he could not comment on the overall case.

But, he said, “We of course hope that all of his rights will be observed.”
That Putin, who sends assassins around the world to kill his enemies is so, so concerned about Assange's rights may be an indication of whom Assange was benefiting. For if Wikileaks had been releasing troves of Russian secrets, he would have been put in the ground years ago. In point of fact, Wikileaks has refused to publish Russian secrets. Wikileaks has arguably been operating as an intelligence service hostile to the US.

Assuming that Assange is extradited to the US, it's anyone's guess what will happen. The CIA would love to see him tried and thrown into a supermax prison until his body decays. Trump, on the other hand, loves Wikileaks.



Whether or not Trump pardons Assange will depend on what marching orders Trump receives from his handler.

That Wikileaks itself has been hosted on servers in Russia for years is informative about their relationship.
