“I’m looking into it,” Assange said in a Twitter direct message. “My physical circumstances means that nothing is easy.”
Assange had previously said on Twitter that he was interested in starting a weekly radio show or podcast. After Hannity saw his tweet, he made Assange an offer.
“If you would like to fill in for me one day I am on over 550 stations and 14 plus million listeners,” Hannity wrote in a tweet.
Hannity has not always spoken kindly of Assange. In 2010 he accused him of “waging [a] war” against the U.S. and questioned why he hadn’t been arrested. But since Wikileaks published thousands of internal electronic communications from the Democratic National Committee and the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, Hannity has praised him. The Fox News host even traveled to London, where Assange had holed up in Ecuador’s embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden, to interview him.
