Questions about Assange

So I keep seeing internet sources saying that Assange has damaging information about Hillary he plans to release any day now.

1) So does Ecuador support Trump? If so, why?
2) If Ecuador doesn't support Trump, why don't they tell Assange in a friendly way that he should leave the embassy and deal with the friendly legal authorities waiting outside?
3) Why doesn't he just say whatever he has to say instead of dragging this out?

1. You have brought up a good point, maybe it is time for Assange to be honest about

his problems and face justice himself before jumping off into other people's business.

2. October surprise. He wants maximum effect.

 

He released the DNC email dump right before the convention, which took down Debiie. He had those emails back in June. He waited right before the convention to release them.

He's not dumb. He's going to do it when he feels it would create the maximum effect.

7. "He's not dumb." Pray tell where did you get that idea?

 

We're still waiting for the Bank Of America "poison pill" files. Well, some are. Believing in Assange is a fool's errand.

6. He is an anti-Semite

 

His opinion means zilch.

8. Every other nations actions doesn't revolve around our internal politics

 

So Ecuadors actions with regard to him and decisions about them probably don't consider our political campaigns with much weight- or at all.

It's pretty arrogant to think that another nation is going to set its policies primarily based on how they want our internal elections to play out, or who they support in them.

9. Maybe Ecuador doesn't support Trump as much as it fears Mrs Clinton.

Her record in Central and South American affairs isn't exactly stellar.

I would imagine he's dragging this out in order to cause the greatest impact.

10. point by point

1. I don't think Ecuador cares one way or the other.

2. I don't think Ecuador cares one way or the other.

3. Look at all the interviews he has given in the past two weeks. He's said enough about it to fill a book.

11. Fair enough. Thanks.

If Ecuador doesn't care, why do the let him take refuge in their embassy?
