Bonus: "Bunch of Clowns"
By ABC News
In this special episode, "The Investigation" takes listeners inside the Ecuadorian Embassy and the tiny room that Julian Assange called home for the past seven years. Senior Executive Producer Chris Vlasto along with investigative reporters Matt Mosk and James Meek speak with documentary filmmaker Sean Langan, who has spent over 50 hours visiting with Assange in what he called "a gilded cage...with very old fashioned, 1950’s, Spanish Mexican furniture." Langan tells "The Investigation" about his last meeting with Assange just 20 days ago: "he looked me in the eye and I could sense…he had this real fear now…of spending the rest of his life in a Supermax federal prison in America," and what Assange really thinks about Roger Stone and Donald Trump,Jr.: "he said, 'those bunch of clowns…couldn't conspire and organize this kind of thing.'"
