(BREAKING WIDE) – Tusi Gabbard Ken Espionage Act as Trojan Horse over New Revelations from Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg.
A while back, Rep. Tusi Gabbard introduced resolutions urging US congress to drop all charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.
Gabbard continues to fight for Whistleblowers and according to her, whistleblowers are to be protected and even celebrated for exposing the lies and deceit perpetrated by the government.
“Hey everybody, as you know i have been talking about recent legislation and issues surrounding the charges that Snowden, Assange and others are facing under the Espionage Act.” “So we went back and looked through our footage and pulled a clip from a conversation that I had with Daniel Ellsberg last year that I wanted to share with you,” Gabbard said.
“As you might know, Daniel Ellsberg was the brave Whistleblower who came forward and published with the Washington Post ‘The Pentagon Papers’ that exposed lies that our government was telling the American people about the Vietnam war.”
“The consequences that he faced was being charged under the Espionage Act of 1917 and potentially facing 135 years in prison.”
“This conversation with Daniel Ellsberg will allow you to hear directly from him what he went through and also as he speaks to a very specific kind of reforms that we need to make sure our whistleblowers who bravely come forward in the public interest are able to have their fair in court,” she said.
Newly released video clip shared to Twitter Friday shows Gabbard’s conversations with Daniel Ellsberg. According to Gabbard:
Daniel Ellsberg was once named ‘the most dangerous man in America’ by Kissinger for bravely exposing US government lies about the Vietnam War. Nixon wanted Ellsberg thrown in jail. Charged under the Espionage Act, he faced 115 years in prison. Here’s a clip of our conversation:
