WikiLeaks' Julian Assange Faces 17 New Charges Under Espionage Act

WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange faces 17 new charges under the infamous Espionage Act — which was used to imprison Daniel Ellsberg, Emma Goldman, and Socialist Presidential Candidate Eugene Debs. Assange is not a spy — they sell secrets and keep secrets — he exposed truths the U.S. government concealed from We the People. And where are the NY Times and Amazon Post? They should turn in the prizes they got for Assange’s courage and work.
