Interesting this slippery fellow: Julian Paul Assange or Julian Paul Hawkins. He was reknown some time in past with publishing USA Army secret documents provided by Chelsea Manning an US Army intelligence member. He/she is known upon as the solder turned from male to female whilst in Army custody.
some commentators in the US could not believe how different Assange looked like compared to a young man a couple of years ago - he looks like Hobbit now! It seems that Ecuador embassy grew tired of him and his cat.... and he was actually using some sport equipment to ride there. Maybe he would be better off now in public when he would have something to do (defend himself) instead of just hiding? Fox News was unhappy since Assange delivered victory to Trump helping get Hilary Clinton's emails
Mucky-pedia: Julian Assange smeared feces on walls of Ecuador's London embassy during his seven-year stay, country's interior minister claims following WikiLeaks founder's arrest
Julian Assange smeared faeces over the walls of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London before he was hauled out of his seven-year-old hideaway.
The revelation was made by Ecuador's Interior Minister after the Wikileaks founder was dramatically arrested by British police officers today.
The country's president Lenin Moreno accused the Australian of 'discourteous and aggressive behaviour' as he confirmed the south American country had withdrawn his asylum status.

Rafael Correa, Ecuadorian president when Assange was granted asylum, branded Moreno a traitor.
But the country's Interior Minister Maria Paula Romo hit back by claiming Correa had allowed the 47-year-old to get away with some unimaginable behaviour.
She said: 'During his stay at the Ecuadorian Embassy, during the government of the former president Rafael Correa, they tolerated things like Mr Assange putting faeces on the walls of the embassy and other types of behaviour of this kind that is far removed from the minimum respect a guest should have in a country which has generously welcomed him.'
She did not make it clear if he had used his own faeces or someone else's.

The Wikileaks founder was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in handcuffs by a large group of Metropolian Police officers as stunned supporters and protesters watched on in central London
Assange, sporting a scruffy beard and unkempt hair, was dragged out of the embassy in handcuffs by a group of seven men after his asylum status was withdrawn.
He is facing up to 12 months in a British jail after being found guilty today at Westminster Magistrates Court of skipping bail in 2012 to seek refuge at the embassy over rape allegations which led to Sweden requesting his arrest.
He now faces a battle against extradition to America where he is wanted for espionage and publication of sensitive government documents.
His lawyers fear he will face the death penalty, a claim rubbished today by President Moreno who said Britain had confirmed it would not extradite Assange to a country where he could face the death sentence.
Ecuador's Foreign Minister Jose Valencia said after the arrest: 'Great Britain has offered guarantees that if a third country presented an extradition request, Mr Assange would not be handed over to any nation that could impose the death penalty or where he could be subjected to torture.'
Images of Ecuador's ambassador inviting the UK's secret police into the embassy to drag a publisher of--like it or not--award-winning journalism out of the building are going to end up in the history books. Assange's critics may cheer, but this is a dark moment for press freedom.
