10:35 Important piece in NY Law Journal by longtime NYT counsel (going back to Pentagon Papers) James Goodale. “The Justice Department is on what lawyers call a “fishing expedition.They are looking desperately for any evidence to construct a case….And so, what started off as a putative prosecution of Assange, has turned into a persecution…..If The New York Times is a publisher protected by the First Amendment, so is Assange and if Assange were indicted, the Justice Department would therefore run into the road blocks put up by the First Amendment, in addition to those discussed above.” Still, he expects the U.S. to continue to push, using the grand jury in Alexandria, Va.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
