Harvard Law Professor Jack Goldsmith, former Assistant Attorney General, Office of Legal Counsel, argues why the U.S. shouldn’t try Julian Assange.
In a second Main Justice video, former federal prosecutor Eric Snyder argues the case for prosecution. Goldsmith and Snyder were joined on the panel at the Santa Fe conference by 2007 Pulitzer Prize winner Charlie Savage, now Washington correspondent for The New York Times, Ken Wainstein, who served in many high ranking positions in the Bush Administration, including the first Assistant Attorney General for National Security, and Valerie Plame Wilson, a former covert CIA operations officer whose name became public as a result of a well publized leak. The panel was moderated by NAFUSA Executive Director Rich Rossman.
