Lieberman: NYT May Have Committed Crime By Publishing Wikileaks Cables (VIDEO)


Lieberman, the chair of the Homeland Security Committee, has taken credit for getting to kick Wikileaks off its servers and has warned other tech firms not to host the site either. (Amazon denies its decision had anything to do with Lieberman.)

Lieberman believes, he said today, that Wikileaks and Assange have violated the Espionage Act. He said Assange should be indicted by the United States and extradited from Britain.

He also wondered why Assange, an Australian citizen, hasn't been charged with treason in the U.S.

"What do you think of the Justice Department's actions so far not to charge Julian Assange with treason?" the Fox anchor, Jenna Lee, asked.

"I don't understand why that hasn't happened yet," Lieberman said.
