WATCH: CN Live! — ‘Assange: Malingerer or Martyr?’

Watch the replay of a discussion of the U.S. appeal hearing against Julian Assange, with John Kiriakou, Andrew Fowler and Bill Hogan.

The United States appeal against a British judge’s decision not to extradite imprisoned WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange begins at the High Court in London on Wednesday with prosecutors for the U.S. seeking to prove Assange is faking psychological disorders and urges to kill himself.

The U.S. wants the High Court to overturn the order of Magistrate Vanessa Baraitser on Jan. 4 not to extradite Assange to the U.S. — to face charges of espionage and conspiracy to commit computer intrusion — because of Assange’s high risk of suicide and the inhumane conditions of U.S. prisons.

Watch the replay of a wide-ranging discussion about the issues surrounding the U.S. appeal with whistleblower and former CIA officer John Kiriakou, who was imprisoned for outing the agency’s illegal torture program; Andrew Fowler, an Australian journalist who has interviewed Assange numerous times and is the author of The Most Dangerous Man In The World: Julian Assange and WikiLeaks’ Fight for Freedom; and by Dr. Bill Hogan, director of Biomedical Informatics for the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Florida.  With your hosts Elizabeth Vos and Joe Lauria. Produced by Cathy Vogan.

    Let’s have a vote on whether we keep the CIA or not. I don’t think they would win any popularity contests and a lot of our troubles would be gone. They just represent corporations banks and the wealthy anyway. License to murder.

    We seem powerless at this point. The judiciary is almost all taken over by corporate interests. The Federalist Society made that happen along with Trump and McConnell taking advantage of an opportunity to roll over public interests and individual rights. Obama didn’t help either. Merrick Garland doesn’t look like he would have been a good SP justice, considering the half-assed way he’s running the Dept of Justice.

    Great coverage CN!

    When and if they decide in Julian Assange’s favor I am hopeful that the pendulum will begin to swing back for those responsible for all the injustice of our illegal system.
