The Leaked Photo That Got Julian Assange Kicked Out Of The Embassy

Apparently more interested in (allegedly) salacious details of Assange's nearly seven-year exile inside the west-London embassy, members of the United Kingdom and USA press have been breathlessly repeating flaky Quito-leaked claims about his living habits and personal hygiene.

Assange was arrested last Thursday.

A photo of Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno lounging in bed with a giant platter of lobster in front of him may have spurred Julian Assange's eviction from the country's London embassy. Moreno gas said Assange abused Ecuador's goodwill, mistreated embassy staff and used his perch to try to interfere in other country's political affairs.

He added: "We cannot allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a centre for spying".

Trump Questions Why 'Radical Left Democrats' Should See Mueller Report
The attorney general, during a hearing last week, said he would be releasing a redacted version of the report in the next week. The full report will show whether Barr's summary left out anything damaging to the president.


Moreno, who became president in 2017, said his nation's previous government provided spying facilities within the embassy. He now faces jail for breaching bail and possible extradition to the US.

Or perhaps it was the leaked pictures of Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno eating lobster in a fancy hotel room bed that finally did it. WikiLeaks denies having anything to do with the leak, but they are indeed the kind of photographs that might anger a corruption scandal-plagued president who imposed austerity measures on his citizens while apparently living the high life himself; just the kind of man journalists ought to be cherrily assisting in the shameless smearing of a whistleblower who is desperately fighting for his freedom.

In an interview with The Guardian, Moreno said Assange's actions "violate asylum conditions" and the country's decision to evict him was "not abitrary but based on global law".

In an episode airing Sunday night, Oliver focused on CNN zeroing in on Assange's appearance, with reporters calling out the WikiLeaks founder's beard and apparent aging.

American Airlines extends Boeing 737 Max cancellations through August
The move is to "provide confidence" to customers during the peak summer travel season, the airline said in a letter. The FAA initially said Boeing would complete the software fix "no later than April".


A lawyer for the Australian hacker, who remains jailed in London pending a ruling on possible extradition to the US, has accused Ecuador of hurling "outrageous allegations" to distract from their "unlawful" abandonment of her client.

She also said Assange's fears of a U.S. extradition threat were proved correct this week after allegations were made that he conspired to hack into a classified Pentagon computer.

"It's appalling, frankly, the way in which he's been treated and I'm really disappointed in the Ecuadorian authorities for removing the asylum..."

The US indictment charges Assange with "conspiracy" for working with former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to crack a password stored on Department of Defence computers in March 2010.
