Assange considering offer to appear before U.S. Senate committee

In the August 1 letter, signed by Republican Sen. Richard Burr and Sen.

"WikiLeaks" legal team say they are "considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard, '" they said in a tweet.

US Senate Permanent Special Committee on Intelligence offered Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder, to testify in the case of Russia's possible interference in the US 2016 presidential elections, as the organization reported on Twitter.

There have also been reports that Ecuador and Britain have reached, or are about to reach, a deal on ending the asylum for Assange. The committee concurred with the Intelligence Committee Assessment on July 3, concluding that Russian intelligence gained access to the DNC networks in July 2015 and maintained access until June 2016.

WikiLeaks disseminated hacked emails from top Clinton campaign adviser John Podesta, as well as hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee.

"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.

The whistleblowing website posted on Twitter a letter purportedly from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence asking Assange to "make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location".

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.

The source of the Agency claims that Assange may soon be required to leave Ecuador's Embassy in London due to deteriorating health.

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.
