Sean Hannity to Interview Julian Assange at Ecuadorian Embassy

Despite having once called for Julian Assange's arrest, Fox News host Sean Hannity will reportedly interview the WikiLeaks founder inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London in a special that will air on Tuesday. Hannity gave Assange a warm welcome in a September satellite interview on Fox News, praising the rabblerouser's “harsh words” for both Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media during the thick of the general election. Last month, on his radio show, Hannity told Assange that he'd “done us a favor” as a nation. “We can now fix the problem” of gaps in cybersecurity, he added, claiming that Assange “exposed the corruption in our government.” In September, Hannity said: “Part of me, in the beginning, was conflicted about you.” Six years before, Hannity had accused Assange of “waging war against the U.S.”
