Congress Working Committee condemns use of force against farmers; resolves to fight for their rights
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is considering an offer to appear before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee to discuss alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, his lawyer said on Thursday.
"The U.S. Senate Select Committee request confirms their interest in hearing from Mr. Assange," his lawyer Jennifer Robinson said in a statement.
"The inquiry has asked for him to appear in person at a mutually agreeable time and place. We are seriously considering the offer but must ensure Mr. Assange's protection is guaranteed."
