Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says the U.S. government has marooned Edward Snowden in Moscow.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopolous, Assange says canceling the NSA leaker’s passport was a disgrace since he hasn’t been convicted of anything.
Wikileaks has been helping Snowden’s quest for political asylum. Assange says Snowden deserves better.
Assange is himself a fugitive guest of the Ecuadorian government.
He’s been holed up in that country’s London embassy avoiding extradition.
It’s believed Snowden had planned to fly from Russia to Ecuador via Cuba.
