London – The White House isn’t commenting on Sunday’s appeal from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange that the U.S. end what he called a “witch hunt” against his site.
Speaking publicly for the first time in several months, Assange said the FBI should end its investigation of the secret-spilling website. He also called on President Obama to “do the right thing.”
Saturday, the Obama administration said it would leave Assange’s fate for Sweden, Great Britain and Ecuador.
Assange is being held in Ecuador’s embassy in London to avoid sex crime allegations in Sweden. Ecuador granted Assange asylum Thursday, but British authorities say they will arrest him if he leaves.
