Yesterday, Agence France-Presse reported:
Julian Assange’s stay at the Ecuadorean embassy will reportedly end within “hours to days.” WikiLeaks tweeted today that its founder would be turfed out of the embassy in London where he has lived for more than six years.
“A high level source within the Ecuadorian state has told @WikiLeaks that Julian Assange will be expelled within “hours to days” using the #INAPapers offshore scandal as a pretext — and that it already has an agreement with the UK for his arrest,” the tweet said.

Now comes word that British police are prepared to arrest Assange if and when he is ousted from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
via The Hill:
Police told reporters that Assange faces a warrant for his arrest in the United Kingdom, which he has been avoiding for years by living in the Ecuadorian diplomatic compound, and officers said that they are “obliged to execute that warrant should he leave the Embassy,” according to the AP
A few comments of note:
This man ran to the embassy because he wanted to avoid rape charges. His Wikileaks was meant to expose government corruption, and instead helped the Russians infiltrate our own government. There’s a reason Snowden ran to Russia, the stupid traitor. If this fucker manages to escape, he’ll run to Russia too.
Even when he was exposing government corruption,he showed early on what kind of person he was when he was asked about people like Afghani translators whose lives were put in danger due to these leaks. He basically stated sometimes bad things have to happen for a greater good. No one should have rallied behind him after that.
