WikiLeaks says Senate panel requested Assange testimony for Russia probe
The Hill ^ | 8/8/2018 | Morgan Chalfant

Posted on 08/11/2018 11:04:09 AM PDT by bitt

WikiLeaks is claiming that the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked its founder, Julian Assange, to testify as part of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.”

A spokeswoman for Warner declined to comment on witnesses. A spokeswoman for Burr also declined to comment.

Assange’s legal team is “considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard,” WikiLeaks wrote on Twitter.

Assange's testimony would be of interest to those investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election

“CLOSED DOOR”?

No frackin way. I doubt Assange would agree to such a thing.

As if he would release the names of his sources to the leakers in Congress.

Warner is a COUP PLOTTER and Burr probably is also!! They certainly don’t want Assange to tell them that SETH RICH was the leaker to him, NOT any Russians! BE WARY OF THEM, JUIAN, they want you QUIETED!

Twitter account? Ummm haven’t opened it in months. What a farce. Is this the new way to have the Sheriff serve a warrant? You have got to be kidding me.

The only way Burr and Warner want Assange to come to the US is not to testify, but because there is a plot to kill him once he gets here or leaves the embassy.
