It isn’t rocket science. If speech is somehow deemed “bad”,,,, the solution is other free speech countering it fully. Thats how a free society works. A totalitarian nation instead works to silence the speech it opposes. This wasnt the nuclear missile launch codes, this was that government was hiding the most proximate cause of the murders for political reasons.
And what was she doing with that source you think she should be compelled to testify against? They call it “conspiracy”. There are so many ways they can prosecute her it’s ridiculous. She should assert her 5th rights, refuse any immunity offers, and let FOX attorneys do their job.
She won’t be alone.
And she exposed a secret the government was hiding to keep the gun control train on schedule. They sure were happy to tell us about his AR-15, His Joker thing, the Bombs at his house, etc etc. The only little detail they were keeping secret was that the mental health professionals in his life should have intervened. But that didn’t help the gun control agenda here.
And she let the cat outta the bag.
That certainly isn’t rocket science, though what it has to do with my post and why you addressed the argument to me remains a mystery.
“what was she doing with that source you think she should be compelled to testify against?”
I don’t really care. They could have been playing tiddlywinks.
“They call it ‘conspiracy’”
Conspiracy to do what? Break confidentiality? But the reporter wasn’t under any obligation to stay mum. That was the person with access to the information, and only they can decide to leak. Talking with them about it or publishing it after they do isn’t criminal.
“There are so many ways they can prosecute her it’s ridiculous”
I assume you say that because if the profligacy of laws. Isn’t there a book called “Three Felonies a Day,” referring to how everyone is breaking the law all the time? But think about this for a minute; truly think. If the law is so ridiculous and all of us are liable to be prosecuted for any old reason, how would you ever compel anyone to testify about anything? How would the criminal justice system work? Both’d be impossible.
