Assange requested to testify on 2016 US election

The legal team for Wikileaks says it's considering a request from a United States Senate inquiry for Julian Assange to testify on Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. The US Senate Intelligence Committee has invited Assange in a letter sent via the US embassy in London. The committee has asked the Wikileaks founder for a closed interview at a mutually agreeable time and place. The Wikileaks team says the testimony must conform to a 'high ethical standard'. Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012 to avoid extradition to the US.
