    Default DNC Serves WikiLeaks With Lawsuit Through Twitter

    I'm not sure I even care about this case - but more so the motives behind it - which are I believe to shut them up, as Assange and company are being asked to testify before congress. One of the things expected would be the DNC hack blamed on Russia, and it really not being the case...

    FREE PRESS UNDER ATTACK: Democratic National Committee Serves WikiLeaks With Lawsuit Through Twitter

    The Democratic National Committee served WikiLeaks with a lawsuit via Twitter on Friday.

    The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan, is based on WikiLeaks publishing their emails during the 2016 election. It accuses the publisher of violations of federal copyright laws and the Trade Secrets Act.



    The account used to serve WikiLeaks was created right before they sent the tweet.

    The Democratic Party had filed a motion in federal court requesting permission to serve WikiLeaks with a lawsuit through the platform in July. The motion claimed that they have been unable to serve the publisher with the lawsuit since April 20.

    “Because WikiLeaks has more of a virtual than a physical presence, the court can and should exercise its authority … to authorize service by Twitter,” the DNC argued in their request.

    The lawsuit poses serious threats to press freedom and the ability to publish. According to the Bartnicki First Amendment test, a defendant may not be held liable for a disclosure of stolen information if it deals with “a matter of public concern.” The second portion requires that the publisher cannot have been involved in the theft.

    The suit does not accuse WikiLeaks of being involved in hacking or stealing the documents in any way,

    If the DNC wins this lawsuit, any media outlet that publishes leaked material could in turn be sued by the subject of their reporting.

    “Some of the most important stories in contemporary journalism have come from media outlets obtaining and publishing materials that were taken without authorization or even in violation of the law. Both the New York Times and Washington Post published thousands of pages from the top-secret Pentagon Papers after Daniel Ellsberg took them without authorization from the Pentagon — and they won the right to publish them in the U.S. Supreme Court,” Glenn Greenwald wrote for the Intercept.

    In a motion filed by President Donald Trump’s lawyers in a separate case in October, lawyer Michael A. Carvin argued that under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (47 U.S.C. § 230), “a website that provides a forum where ‘third parties can post information’ is not liable for the third party’s posted information.”

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.

    Julian Assange 'Seriously Considering' Testifying Before Senate Panel

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is "seriously considering" a request to testify in person before the U.S. Senate intelligence committee about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to a statement from his lawyer.

    Assange has been holed up at Ecuador's embassy in London since 2012, in part over fears that he could be extradited to the U.S. and potentially face trial over leaking massive troves of documents.

    On Wednesday, the WikiLeaks Twitter account posted a letter that it says was delivered to Assange via the U.S. Embassy in London. The purported document is signed by committee Chairman Richard Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner and asks that Assange "make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location" as part of the probe.
