Why the journalist activist spy who came to diner lost his room and board, from Breitbart:

This week, [Ecuador President Lenin] Moreno cut yet another Correa-era alliance, this time with a controversial antagonist whose only use to Correa was to annoy the U.S. government and help him cover up for authoritarian acts against Ecuadorian journalists.

“Ecuador is a generous country and a nation with open arms. Ours is a government respectful of the principles of international law, and of the institution of the right of asylum,” Moreno stated in a video message distributed on social media explaining the reasoning behind allowing Assange’s arrest. “Granting or withdrawing asylum is a sovereign right of the Ecuadorian state, according to international law.”

Translation, whereas the former government of Ecuador found Julian Assange to be a useful idiot, the current government no longer does.
