How the U.S. Gov’t uses the Espionage Act to Silence Whistleblowers

We Are Change CT breaks down the Espionage Act and how it’s used by the U.S. Gov’t to Silence Whistleblowers. We discuss the latest news involving General David Petraeus who recently pled guilty to leaking classified information and how the U.S. Government has developed a two-tiered justice system for leaks, where people like General Petraeus gets no jail time, meanwhile Whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning, John Kiriakou, Thomas Drake, Stephen Kim & many others are persecuted & prosecuted for exposing illegality. We also discuss the implications the Espionage Act will have on Journalism & future Whistleblowers.
