Julian Assange’s brother Gabriel Shipton joined ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight‘ on Monday as the WikiLeaks founder appears set to be extradited to the U.S. from the U.K..
The public has “been able to ignore this case for a while,” he said. “They’re making an example out of Julian.”
“The people who run our democracies now would like to rule them with impunity,” he also said. “They don’t want people to know what’s being done in their name. They want to keep secrets. They don’t want the public to be informed. They’re telling people: ‘If you tell the truth about our secrets about the security state, this is what’s going to happen to you. You’ll be locked in a prison for the rest of your life.'”
