Julian Assange joined Ron Paul of the Liberty Report to discuss the latest push by the Trump White House to bring charges against Assange and Wikileaks for publishing US Government documents.
Last week Ron Paul made his voice heard in the latest war of words between the CIA and Assange, saying…
“if we allow this president to declare war on those who tell the truth, we have only ourselves to blame.”
Trump’s Wikileaks witch-hunt is one of many campaign pivots undertaken by the current POTUS which could not only turn away a core demographic of support, but also open the door to criminal prosecution of any press outlets deemed to be enemies of the state.

Julian Assange notes in the live interview…
“The CIA has been deeply humiliated as a result of our ongoing publications so this is a preemptive move by the CIA to try and discredit our publications and create a new category for Wikileaks and other national security reporters to strip them of First Amendment protections.”
