JULIAN Assange says he has no intention of being extradited to the US yet despite offering last month to turn himself in if Chelsea Manning was released.
The WikiLeaks founder was clearly ruffled during the interview with Waleed Aly on Tuesday night’s The Project, with Assange exclaiming he’s “not a complete idiot!” after Aly probed him about his pledge.
Quizzing Assange about his offer now that Manning has been released, Aly asked what it would take for him to leave the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he’s been living for four and a half years.
