Why Did Ecuador Really Turn On Assange After Giving Him Seven Years Of Asylum?

It wasn't long after Julian Assange was summarily turfed out of his asylum in Ecuador's London embassy that the complaints began.

According to CNN, the country had a laundry list of alleged transgressions that thoroughly wore out the WikiLeaks founder's welcome.

Government officials accused Assange of riding scooters around the cramped embassy hallways, insulting staff and smearing feces on the walls.

But it's likely the motivations for stripping Assange of his asylum and allowing in officers of the Metropolitan Police are more complex.

Assange had filed a lawsuit against the Ecuadorian government over its strict new house rules for living at the embassy.

Quito was also irritated by Assange's support for the Catalonian independence movement.

More recently, WikiLeaks posted a tweet bringing attention to a corruption probe that Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno is facing.

It linked to an anonymously registered website hosting a trove of leaked emails, text messages and other information about Moreno's private life.
