On Thursday night, Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman spoke to Noam Chomsky about Assange’s arrest, WikiLeaks and American power.

Glenn Greenwald calls Julian Assange’s arrest “a grave threat to press freedoms

“It’s the criminalization of journalism by the Trump Justice Department and the gravest threat to press freedom, by far, under the Trump presidency,” says Glenn Greenwald responding to the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. “Every journalist in the world should be raising their voice as loudly as possible to protest and denounce this.”

British human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson, who formerly represented Julian Assange, says the Wikileaks founder has made many enemies, including the governments of Ecuador, Australia, the U.K. and U.S. “At the end of the day, you come down to the question of free speech, whether it’s right that a publisher who has received information from sources who want it published … should be jailed and punished for the efforts he’s made on behalf of free speech,” says Robertson.
