Snowden Calls on Trump to Drop Case Against WikiLeaks, Assange

by Mikael Thalen, Infowars:

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden is calling on President Donald Trump to drop the U.S. government’s ongoing investigation into WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.

In a letter signed by Snowden as well as hundreds of others Trump is urged to end the pursuit against the anti-secrecy organization, in addition to dropping any charges against its members.

“We are journalists, activists and citizens from the United States and around the world who care about press freedom and are writing to you in response to the latest threat of prosecution against WikiLeaks for its journalistic work,” the letter, hosted by the Courage Foundation, a whistleblower advocacy organization, states. “We ask you to immediately close the Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks and drop any charges against Julian Assange and other Wikileaks staff members which the Department of Justice is planning.”

The case against WikiLeaks stems back to at least 2010 when the organization published more than 250 million classified cables from 250 US embassies around the world.

“This threat to WikiLeaks escalates a long-running war of attrition against the great virtue of the United States — free speech,” the letter continues. “The Obama Administration prosecuted more whistleblowers than all presidents combined and opened a Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks that had no precedent.”
