  • The letter published by WikiLeaks

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

Despite Assange's central role in the release of the DNC emails, the Senate intelligence committee's testimony request appears to the first time that investigators reached out to the Wikileaks founder.

The leaders of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence sent a letter to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange last week requesting that he speak with committee staffers about his connections to the Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA).

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for more than six years and refused to leave over fears he will be arrested and extradited to the US.

The letter to Julian Assange states: "As you are aware, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is conducting a bipartisan inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections".

He was granted asylum in 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he was accused of sex crimes, allegations that were later dropped.

"According to Moreno, Ecuadorian authorities are now in talks with Assange's lawyers to work out an agreement that would ensure the security of the WikiLeaks' founder "'in line with the norms of worldwide law".

He said the claims were a political smear linked to WikiLeaks' work and said he feared being transferred from Sweden to the United States to face trial for the release of leaked USA military documents.

Twelve Russian military intelligence officers hacked into the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic Party and released tens of thousands of private communications in a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 USA election, according to an indictment announced days before President Donald Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in July.

The alleged interest comes amid an ongoing investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into alleged collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation to help him secure a victory.
