The Wikileaks founder continued his operation with little interruption throughout his stay there until Correa's vice president, Lenin Moreno, took power in 2017 shortly after the 2016 USA presidential election, during which Wikileaks published damaging emails from the DNC showing that the organization colluded with the media to rig the primary election against Bernie Sanders to secure Hillary Clinton's presidential nomination.
Australian-born Assange, 47, also faces a charge of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion in the USA for his alleged role in one of the largest ever leaks of government secrets in 2010.
Assange was arrested in London on a US warrant over his alleged role in a massive leak of military and intelligence documents in 2010, according to the US Justice Department.

Deputy Director of Public Prosecution Eva-Marie Persson said prosecutors will examine the case before determining how to proceed.
The details were revealed during remarks by Valencia to the press on Thursday.
US prosecutors say Assange was part of a criminal conspiracy to hack and steal information harmful to the United States. On Thursday, chief prosecutor Ingrid Isgren said that Sweden had not been informed ahead of time that Assange would be expelled from the embassy. David Allen Green, a British legal commentator who has tracked the allegations against Assange for years, wrote on Twitter that the Swedish request would probably be given precedence "because of historic request and pending limitation period".
