- Top Ecuadorian Diplomat Destroys Guardian’s Claim That Manafort Visited Assange
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
A former consul and first secretary at the Ecuadorian embassy in London has put the final nail in the coffin of credibility for The Guardian, refuting the paper’s fantastical and wholly unsupported claim that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2013, 2015 and the spring of 2016 – a charge vehemently denied by all parties involved.
Fidel Narváez – who worked at Ecuador’s London embassy from 2010 – 2018 has told The Canary that The Guardian‘s claim is entirely false. The Canary has also reviewed a copy of correspondence between the Guardian and Narváez in which he makes a formal complaint accusing the paper of fabricating an earlier story about a Kremlin plot to smuggle Assange to Russia.
