During a Fox News interview, Lieberman claimed that WikiLeaks is responsible for the “most serious violation of the Espionage Act in our history” and should be indicted in a U.S. court. But Lieberman then suggested that news organizations that published leaked material — originally obtained by WikiLeaks — may have also violated the Espionage Act.
“I’m not here to make a final judgment on that,” Lieberman said. “But to me the New York Times has committed at least an act of bad citizenship, but whether they have committed a crime, I think that bears very intensive inquiry by the Justice Department.”
Perhaps Bill Keller will now realize that shitting on Wikileaks and blathering on about the Times’ exercise of journalistic judgment does him absolutely no good. He and Julian Assange are the same fucking thing to the Liebermans of the world.
Also, too: if it didn’t take 60 votes for cloture, Joe Lieberman would be chairman of the Committee to Investigate Dingleberries on Joe Lieberman’s Anus. Because of the 60 vote rule, he runs the Committee on Homeland Security.
