Scott talks with Andrew Napolitano about the government crimes Edward Snowden and Julian Assange exposed. First, the judge gives some legal history and context to help us understand specifically what Snowden revealed back in 2013. That leads to a discussion of the sheer scale of illegal surveillance in which the intelligence agencies are engaged. They then turn to Julian Assange. Judge Napolitano goes over some history that highlights how absurd the legal arguments against Assange are.

- “Edward Snowden: An American in Moscow” (Antiwar.com)
- The Shadow Factory: The NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America by James Bamford
