Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, offered to help Ecuador's then newly elected president Lenín Moreno hand over WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the US, sources told The New York Times.

According to the Times, which cited three unnamed sources, Manafort went to Ecuador in May 2017 to offer his services to Ecuador's incoming president, Lenín Moreno - focusing on a deal in which China would invest in the South American nation's power system.

His talks with Ecuador ended without any deals. However, the President and his aides rather quickly turned the conversation to how to remove the burden of responsibility for the granting of asylum to Assange in the Embassy in London. During discussions, Moreno and his aides reportedly expressed their desire for Assange to leave the embassy, where he has been holed up since 2012, in exchange for US debt relief, according to the report.
