5/18/20 Trevor Timm on FISA, the Patriot Act, Chelsea Manning, and Julian Assange

5/18/20 Trevor Timm on FISA, the Patriot Act, Chelsea Manning, and Julian Assange

Scott interviews Trevor Timm about a recent U.S. senate vote that would grant the government access to Americans’ browser history without a warrant. This shameful vote is surprising to those who thought that even Washington insiders would have stood up to a civil liberties violation this egregious. Timm and Scott also discuss Julian Assange’s extradition case, which has the potential to set a dangerous precedent not just for iconoclasts exposing scandalous government secrets, but for anyone who does investigative journalism as we know it.

Discussed on the show:

Trevor Timm is a co-founder and the executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation. He is a journalist, activist, and lawyer whose writing has appeared in the New York Times, The Guardian, USA Today, The Atlantic, and many others. Follow him on Twitter @trevortimm.
