The US Government secretly redefining journalists it doesn't like as "information brokers" in order to attack them with the CIA is horrific crime against the constitution. It's also braindead branding, because "information broker" sounds waaay cooler than "journalist."

The reporting also uncovers a CIA plot under Obama -- during the height of the Snowden reporting -- to classify myself, Laura Poitras and Assange as "information brokers" rather than journalists to justify surveillance of us and even imprisonment, rejected by the Obama DOJ.

We already knew the Trump DOJ was spying on Journalists. None of this is shocking.

Continuing to tie yourself to Glenn will only lose you credibility. Why would Trump and Pompeo go after Assange after he helped them win? It doesn't make sense unless you realize that the way he did it was probably illegal and they know it.
