Pushback with Aaron Maté
In his latest Grayzone exposé, Max Blumenthal reveals new details on the CIA spying and sabotage operation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The US surveilled Assange inside Ecuador’s London embassy, all while working with Trump mega-donor and casino magnate Sheldon Adelson’s security team and a Spanish company that had initially been hired to protect the embassy. Drawing on court testimony and internal documents, Blumenthal reports on how the CIA sabotaged an asylum plan for Assange; installed software that allowed it to directly monitor him; and harassed and monitored Assange’s attorneys, friends, family, and journalist colleagues.
Guest: Max Blumenthal, Editor of The Grayzone and author of The Management of Savagery.
