CN Live! S3 E12: The Espionage Act & Julian Assange

As a ruling by the High Court in London is imminent in the U.S. appeal seeking to overturn an order not to extradite imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, we look at the High Court’s options and examine the parallel history of the U.K. Official Secrets Act and the U.S. Espionage Act, under which Assange has been charged. Our guests are James Goodale, who was The New York Times counsel during the Pentagon Papers case, and CN legal analyst Alexander Mercouris.
