“Human rights have not been in a crisis like this since the end of the Second World War,” says Manfred Nowak, the former United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture. We should listen. https://t.co/NABCylloDK
Democracy depends on factual consensus, which requires access to information--especially the sort some would rather not hear. What you see before you is the path to a world without witnesses, and it is our lawmakers who will decide if we continue down it--as we have for decades. https://t.co/UCxeLrXwj6
Tell me again about "proper channels." https://t.co/UWAKEWtont
This is the most important report you will read today. https://t.co/Gejco8EmKx
This looks like the first confirmed case of digital weapons made by Israel's NSO group being used against a major US reporter. NSO has repeatedly, falsely sworn their hacks are only used against "terrorists" and "serious criminals." Which one is @NYTBen? https://t.co/V8UnVP6OTy
"No other candidate specifically aims to make the United States more closely resemble a freer country." Provocative article from the last cycle. https://t.co/ksIYMbtIlm
The most essential journalism of every era is precisely that which a government attempts to silence. https://t.co/SC9A9sqETv
Those who looked the other way because they personally disliked Julian Assange when the DOJ indicted him under a legal theory that merely publishing clear, public-interest journalism could constitute multiple Espionage Act violations should reconsider where that road leads. https://t.co/KrQ7rLzKJr
Our statement at @FreedomOfPress on the false charges laid by Brazil's Bolsonaro regime against @GGreenwald for reporting the biggest corruption story in years -- corruption in the Justice Ministry itself! These charges are unbelievable, unsupported, and indefensible. https://t.co/wGkC4JI2GB
If you're a journalist, you need to read this thread. https://t.co/75dEiTt4se

"I GENERALLY CARE relatively little for the personal lives of people of note, but something that always nagged me just slightly about Edward Snowden’s 2013 revelations that the NSA was spying on pretty much everyone was — how angry was his girlfriend?" https://t.co/ASXuEbFb6U
With the hubris of a man who had looked long at the screen, I thought I had seen it all. I was wrong. https://t.co/2vfvVPm73R
“Nearly every other legal system in the world condemns coercive confinement, and long ago replaced secret grand juries with public hearings... even knowing I am very likely to stay in jail for an even longer time, I’m never backing down.” https://t.co/8DBnxFHdxh
Whoever you are, whatever your values, recognize the historic importance of this: it is second time the US government's retaliation against *the same whistleblower* has been found equivalent to torture. Telling the truth has become the greatest of crimes. https://t.co/Aq9dlz25FO
