Journalists Max Blumenthal & Stefania Maurizi & former Ecuadorian diplomat Fidel Narváez joined a panel moderated by academic Deepa Driver that was a deep drive into CIA spying on Julian Assange in Ecuador’s embassy in London.
In any other court case, revelations that the prosecuting government spied on the defendant would be immediately thrown out by the judge. But the case against WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange is not just any case. It is an attempt by the United States and Britain to send a journalist to the U.S. where he would face life in prison for publishing state secrets that exposed U.S. war crimes and other abuses of power.
Journalist Max Blumenthal discussed a piece he recently wrote in which he revealed how casino magnate and major Republican donor Sheldon Adelson worked with the CIA and the Spanish surveillance firm UC Global to provide 24/7 video and audio monitoring of Assange inside the embassy.
Watch the replay on Consortium News of a panel discussion with Blumenthal, journalist Stefania Maurizi, and former Ecuadorian diplomat Fidel Narváez, moderated by academic Dr. Deepa Driver.
