Or he's not actually worried about the US and he's using it to drum up support for him skipping bail and dodging out of Sweden when he (or his lawyer anyway) knew there were additional charges they wanted to question him over. Ecuador is only protecting him because (publicly at least) they've said the prosecutions in Sweden were political in nature and intended as a way to get him in custody then extradite him. If the US dropped any charges against him then it would be much more difficult to spin the Swedish charges as politically motivated, meaning he might lose their protections.
