Swedish feminists' beds are waiting for the coolest man in the world. After he gets an STD panel, obviously - or the other way around? Don't ask me, I guess I'm not a feminist :-(

if he does leave the embassy, the most likely scenario seems to be that the brits arrest him and he is extradited to the US.

I'm not sure what the difference between wikileaks and the Pentagon Papers is.
In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg leaked government documents that showed that JFK and LBJ had lied about why they went to war in Vietnam (the real reason was to contain China). Ellsberg worked for RAND and xeroxed the documents. Ellsberg and a co-conspirator were charged, but the press were allowed by the supreme court to publish the documents
Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell.
   — Justice Black
Is publishing documents on the internet the same as publishing them in a newspaper?

there was a story a while back that there had been an attempt to set up a deal with assange whereby in exchange for  not being prosecuted he would tell the US authorities how wikileaks came to be in possession of the information from the DNC server.
assange has said the source was not the russians, and strongly hinted that it came from the murdered DNC staffer, Seth Rich.
According to that report, then-FBI director Comey killed the deal as soon as he got wind of it.

Congress now wants assange's testimony
WikiLeaks is claiming that the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked its founder, Julian Assange, to testify as part of the panel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The organization posted a letter on its Twitter account dated Aug. 1 that purports to come from committee leaders Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) requesting that he make himself available “for a closed door interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.”
that could probably take place in the Ecuadorean embassy in London where assange is holed up

Kristinn Hrafnsson replaces Julian Assange as WikiLeaks editor-in-chief
Icelandic investigative journalist and former WikiLeaks spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson is set to become the whistleblowing organization’s new editor-in-chief, replacing isolated founder Julian Assange in the role.
Assange is still publisher, and they're citing "six months of effective incommunicado detention"
