Ecuador Pressured to End Julian Assage's Asylum After DNC Leak

While embarrassing Republicans is no big deal, embarrassing Democrats is serious business.

From RT:
Ecuador is being urged to end its asylum of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange by one of its most prominent diplomats, following the recent leak of Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails.

José Ayala Lasso, a three-time foreign minister and the first UN Human Rights Commissioner, made the claims in El Comerico.

He insists that allowing Assange to “influence political activities” with the release of 20,000 DNC emails, which the former diplomat claims was done with “technical support from Russia”, is detrimental to the South American country’s image.

Lasso also writes that Vladimir Putin “would be more satisfied with the triumph of Trump” in November’s US presidential election.

Last month's DNC leaks revealed a fractured Democratic Party with a pro-Hillary Clinton agenda, while her progressive opponent Bernie Sanders was still in the race for the party's nomination.

Lasso accused Ecuador of granting asylum to “time bomb” Assange in a bid to achieve “some international notoriety” rather than the humanitarian reasons it claims.
Here's some of what Lasso wrote in El Comerico (via The Gateway Pundit):
It happens that the author of the mess is none other than the person to whom Ecuador has granted asylum and protection for more than four years. I was the first to say that Assange has, like all human beings, inalienable rights that must be respected. However, an asylee also has obligations can not ignore. should not “perform acts that disturb the public peace or tend to participate or influence political activities” and also must respect and not harm their acts to the country that decided asilarlo.

Unfortunately, Ecuador has not set any limit to the conduct of Assange and allowed to violate his refugee status and who seek asylum taunt. His latest interference in US policy could have consequences worldwide, of which Ecuador, Assange protector, will not leave unscathed. If London has refused to closer ties with Ecuador, because of Assange, Washington is expected to react in the same way. And the United States is our best commercial customer! I said that, once granted asylum, Ecuador is bound to keep. However, given the gruesome performances Assange undoubtedly violate his refugee status should be considered whether its conduct, taken to the extreme, it is a good reason for Ecuador to end such asylum.
Assange could potentially blow the election wide open and destroy Hillary Clinton with his next leak, which I would guess is potentially going to be more scandalous than the first.

You can be damn sure Hillary wants him dead.

Considering how many suspicious deaths happen to people who cross the Clintons, you can be sure Assange is under quite a lot of pressure.
