Now that Judge Baraiter has told the defense to STFU about Julian’s extradition being ‘political’, in the second superceding indictment is his (WikiLeaks) having ‘put people in harm’s way‘. Now his Aussie attorney Jen Robinson said that i) if he had, there would have been reports of it, and ii), even if anyone had been harmed, the issue was still moot under his (their) First Amendment rights to have done so. As per Kevin Gostola yeterday, it was unclear whether or not Baraitser would allow Jen to testify for the defense.
Noteworthy is the fact that of all the media organizations who’d profited from publishing WikiLeaks work, Goetz is the only one willing to testify for the defense and tell the Truth.
