Watch the Season Finale of CN Live! in which we discussed Assange, Bolivia, Brazil and Trump’s impeachment with a great lineup of guests.
Saturday night was the Season Finale of CN Live! Scott Ritter, a former UN weapons inspector and U.S. counter-intelligence officer, spoke about the research he’s done for a coming Consortium News article on the so-called whistleblower at the heart of the Democrats’ drive to impeach President Donald Trump. Radio host Lee Stranahan discussed in depth the Ukraine angle of the impeachment process and its role in the 2016 election.
We then broadcast an address by WikiLeaks lawyer Jen Robinson given in Sydney on Friday night, in which she said that Lady Emma Arbuthnot, the Westminster chief magistrate embroiled in a conflict of interest, will no longer be presiding over the extradition proceedings of imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.
