Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has been arrested in London and faces extradition to the United States in response to a new indictment by the Trump Justice Department. In a special report, Ari Melber examines the controversial nature of Assange’s arrest by the current administration noting that the indictment against Assange does not show him stealing anything, coordinating with spies or doing espionage. Melber demonstrates how in fact, the indictment could be viewed as an aggressive and potentially chilling document for journalists in the U.S. and abroad.
