The lanky Australian is the subject of an international tug-of-war, with Swedish prosecutors seeking to question him about alleged sexual misconduct and Britain refusing to let him travel to Ecuador even though that South American country has offered him asylum.

    Matt we care because its a matter of free speech that is at stake. He doesn’t have a security clearance to be accountable.
