Julian Assange reportedly considering offer to host pro-Trump radio show

Julian Assange reportedly considering offer to host US radio show

The Wikileaks founder is reportedly looking Sean Hannity's offer

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Julian Assange has said he is "looking into" the offer made to host a conservative US radio show. 

The original presenter, Trump supporter Sean Hannity, gave the Wikileaks founder the chance to guest host his show. 

The Sean Hannity Show is a nationally syndicated broadcast in America, which airs on 550 radio stations with a reach of 14 million listeners. 

Hannity - who also presents on Fox News - had formerly been a critic of Assange for leaking US documents, saying he had waged war against America. 

However, he appears to have changed his mind after Assange announced he'd leaked files which were thought to have affected Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in the 2016 election.

In an interview with CNN, Assange revealed he was potentially considering the offer but said his physical circumstances would make it difficult. 

Assange has remained ensconced in the Ecuadorian embassy after seeking political refuge for sexual assault charges in Sweden. 

He remains in the embassy now, despite the charges being dismissed, because he is still sought by the British authorities for breaking bail conditions.
