Why Assange Was Released

Robert P. Murphy Kyle Anzalone

Kyle Anzalone from and the Libertarian Institute joins Bob to discuss the timeline of Wikileaks and why the US government disliked Julian Assange.

This week, Assange was offered his freedom in exchange for admitting to espionage charges, but what exactly did he do? And how can the US prosecute Assange when he is not a US citizen? Bob and Kyle review the facts, including how Wikileaks began, the information they leaked, and the reasons behind Julian Assange’s arrest.
