Some of the last people Julian Assange likely wants to talk to just scored an interview with him.
Swedish officials are set to interview the WikiLeaks founder in London, where he's holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy. Assange is facing the possibility of extradition to Sweden, something his lawyers have said could mean he'd be handed over to the U.S.
But Swedish prosecutors have contested that idea, saying they don't have the legal power to do that.
