Snowden, others urge Trump to drop case against Assange

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“Edward Snowden and Noam Chomsky are among those calling on Donald Trump to drop the US government’s investigation into Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. The pair — along with more than 100 other activists, journalists and government workers — have signed an open letter to the president that calls prosecuting WikiLeaks ‘a threat to all free journalism.’ The letter asks the Department of Justice to drop plans to charge Assange and other WikiLeaks staff members.” (05/15/17)
