WikiLeaks believes that the United States is working with Ecuador to extradite Assange to face charges, and that the embassy documents were "quite likely shared with the Trump administration", although it offered no proof of this. The group, which rose to prominence by publishing leaked US intelligence documents, said that "very reliable sources" had told them Ecuador was last week preparing to kick Assange out of its London embassy, where he was granted refuge by previous president Rafael Correa in 2012. "The only reason why this was averted, in our opinion, is that we learned about it," said Hrafnsson. Ecuador said on Tuesday it was reassessing Assange's asylum claim, revocation of which would lead to his arrest by the British authorities for skipping bail. The Australian sought refuge at Ecuador's embassy seven years ago to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faced accusations of sexual assault that prosecutors in Stockholm have since abandoned.
