"Neither Robert Mueller's team nor the US Senate Intelligence Committee has bothered to contact WikiLeaks or me, in any manner, ever", Assange wrote on Twitter in September previous year.

Rumors about the relationship between the Wikileaks founder and the former "Baywatch" star and Playboy model have been swirling for months and have drawn the attention of Federal Bureau of Investigation, which said it may want to interview Anderson about her time spent with Assange, The Sun reported. Days after announcing a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Rich's killer, Assange brought up Rich when discussing the risks whistleblowers take to expose corruption.

Australian-born Assange sought refuge in the embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden to face questioning about allegations of sex crimes which he has always denied.
