President Lenín Moreno of Ecuador *really* wants Julian Assange out of that London embassy. Convicted felon and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort suggested he could broker a deal for the handover of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the United States during a meeting in May 2017 with the president-elect of Ecuador. Paul Manafort is reported to have implied to Lenín Moreno, who is now the President of Ecuador, that he could help the South American nation get a debt relief deal from the Trump Administration in exchange for handing over Julian Assange to the U.S. The talks went nowhere. A few days later, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to lead the investigation that now threatens to topple Trump's entire political career and family organized crime business. And now, of course, Manafort is now a convicted felon. Report Kenneth P. Vogel and Nicholas Casey at the New York Times: In at least two meetings with Mr. Manafort, Mr. Moreno and his aides discussed t...

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been charged with crime in the U.S., according to one court document, while anonymous sources tell the Wall Street Journal the Department of Justice is planning to prosecute him. The supposed charge was revealed by a reference to it in an unrelated case against someone named Seitu Sulayman Kokayi: “Due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Kellen S. Dwyer. It's not clear what the charge is and a spokesman for the Eastern District of Virginia U.S. attorney’s office told Huffington Post it was "not the intended name for this filing," leaving open the question of whether he has in fact been charged. However, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that U.S. authorities are "optimistic" about pressing charges. “I have no idea if he has actually been charged or for what, but the not...

During the hearing, Assange said the new rules were a sign Ecuador was trying to push him out, and said Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno had already decided to end his asylum but had not yet officially given the order. "If Mr. Assange wants to stay and he follows the rules ... he can stay at the embassy as long as he wants," said Attorney General Inigo Salvador, adding that Assange's stay had cost the country $6 million. Foreign Minister Jose Valencia declined to comment on Assange's assertion that Ecuador sought to hand him over to the United States.

People have been enjoying chocolate far longer than previously known, according to research published on Monday detailing the domestication and use of cacao beginning 5,300 years ago at an ancient settlement in the highlands of southeastern Ecuador. The study indicates cacao was domesticated roughly 1,500 years earlier than previously known, and that it occurred in South America rather than in Central America, as previously thought. A tropical evergreen tree called Theobroma cacao bears large, oval pods containing the bean-like cacao seeds that today are roasted and turned into cocoa and multitudes of chocolate confections, although chocolate at the time was consumed as a beverage.

The Ecuador embassy in London is fed up with its obnoxious boarder, Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, who has been making a nuisance of himself there since 2012. The platinum blonde 47-year-old perpetual couchsurfer found a post-it note from his housemates stuck to his door, telling him to keep his goddamn bathroom clean and to look after his fucking cat. From the BBC: Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has been given a set of house rules at the Ecuadorean embassy in London that include cleaning his bathroom and taking better care of his cat. The whistle-blower was sent a memo in which he was warned that his feline companion could be confiscated. He was also told to look after its "well-being, food and hygiene" in the set of guidelines, written in Spanish. Image of Vyvyan Basterd from The Young Ones, via BBC2 Read the rest
