Moreover, Obama administration officials remain divided over the wisdom of prosecuting Assange, the sources said, and the likelihood of U.S. criminal charges against him is probably receding rather than growing.
The Obama administration has said Assange's immediate fate is in the hands of Britain, Sweden and Ecuador.
