Ecuador denies WikiLeaks claim it plans to release Julian Assange

The Ecuadorian government on Friday rejected claims by WikiLeaks that founder Julian Assange would be ousted from his sanctuary at the country's embassy in London "within hours to days."

Ecuador's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement released Friday that the allegation was "an attempt to stain the dignity of the country," according to an NBC News translation. Ecuador "has made significant expenditures to pay for his stay" and has "endured its rudeness," the ministry continued.

    If Trump did pardon him the Democrats would waste no time in casting it as evidence of "colluussssion" and try to Impeach Trump. This is what democrats have been doing for 2 years now,also to prevent Trump from doing anything a President does including obstructing his constitutional duties such as appointing and firing cabinet members .

    He would be impeached right now if the GOP wasn't compromised and hypocritical.

    You should re-read your post, sounds more like the Republicans for the last 16 years of Democrat presidents. At least with Trump the pols have a legitimate reason to be pursuing impeachment.
