Jesselyn Radack, director of national security and human rights at ExposeFacts.org and one of Edward Snowden's attorneys, joins the show to discuss the D.C. Bar's decision to go after Thomas Tamm, a former Justice Department lawyer who exposed warrantless wiretapping by President George W. Bush's administration. Radack compares the D.C. Bar's action to the complaint she faced from the D.C. Bar after she became a Justice Department whistleblower.
Later in the interview, Radack responds to what was learned in a Washington Post report on the plea negotiations between David Petraeus' lawyers and Justice Department prosecutors. Petraeus was concerned he would be embarrassed if former CIA officer John Kiriakou's case was referenced in his plea, and his lawyers had the Justice Department remove mention from the statement of facts. He successfully protected himself from prison and losing his pension.
