The letter, dated Aug. 1, says the committee is requesting Assange make himself “available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location.”
The letter is signed by Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va. Senators want to question Assange as part of their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
