Scott talks to John Kiriakou about Chelsea Manning, who is refusing to testify against Wikileaks. Kiriakou explains that she probably doesn’t want to incriminate herself by forgetting things while rehashing details of previous testimony. Scott and Kiriakou both agree that the prosecution of Wikileaks as an intelligence organization is extremely dangerous for the ability to hold government accountable.
Discussed on the show:
- “Chelsea Manning’s ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ Moment” (The American Conservative)
- “4/8/19 Joanne Leon on the Principled Russiagate Skeptics” (The Libertarian Institute)
