Scott talks to Dave DeCamp about a new audio recording of Julian Assange released by Project Veritas, which proves Assange’s contention that he tried to warn the State Department before the famous leak of the state department cables in 2010. For years, government officials have claimed that Assange and Chelsea Manning endangered the lives of American agents by recklessly releasing these confidential documents. In reality, Assange and his team worked around the clock to redact personal information before they released the cables, and it was British journalist Luke Harding who first enabled the release of the unredacted version. Even so, not a single American death has been connected to the information leaked by Manning and published by Assange.
