Biden’s DOJ Is Pressuring Journalists to Help Build Its Case Against Assange

July 06, 2023

The Department of Justice and FBI are pressuring multiple British journalists to cooperate with the prosecution of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, using vague threats and pressure tactics in the process. The first approach to get me to cooperate with the Assange prosecution came via London’s Metropolitan Police in December 2021. But now more journalists have told me that police have turned up on their doorsteps, too, in the last month. The prosecution of Julian Assange is already a threat to the free media, even before his first day in a U.S. courtroom. In other words, I wasn’t the only one worried about the “voluntary” request I had received.
