Kelley Vlahos discusses the latest with Julian Assange, who now will be testifying in a spying case involving the Spanish company UC Global, and which may implicate America’s CIA and even top Republican donor Sheldon Adelson. Assange is being held in a London jail for missing bail, mostly in solitary confinement. His already weakened physical and mental state from seven years of isolation in the Ecuadorian embassy makes his health—and even his survival—a real concern. Meanwhile Chelsea Manning is also rotting in a cell for refusing to testify against Assange. Scott and Vlahos bemoan the very selective appreciation for whistleblowers of the American public, who are mostly indifferent about the plights of Assange and Manning.
