Joe Emersberger says that Julian Assange’s “conspiracy” to expose war crimes has already been punished.
And Trevor Timm says that Assange’s indictment is Trump’s next step in his war on Press freedom.
Government bureaucrats and authoritarians like Donald Trump don’t want the government’s crimes, corruption, incompetence, lies, and buffoonery exposed. They first scamper like little cockroaches when the lights are turned on, and then they use and abuse the armed powers of their regime in control to persecute and silence those who have exposed them. It is repeated throughout history. The fascist authoritarian ignoramus Donald Trump is no different.
