Yesterday, during an interview with Judge Napolitano on fox Business Channel, Ron Paul defended what Wikileaks has been doing, and urging them to expand their horizons into other policy areas. A video of the interview follows.

Paul cited as an example the Federal Reserve. He stated that “Can you imagine what it’d be like if we had every conversation in the last 10 years with our Federal Reserve people, the Federal Reserve chairman, with all the central bankers of the world and every agreement or quid-pro-quo they have? It would be massive. People would be so outraged.”

He also contended that the current federal effort to hunt down Julian Assange is driven by an effort on the part of the officials to ‘cover their butts, after all, the less we know the better for them, right? He defended his argument by stating “In a free society we’re supposed to know the truth,In a society where truth becomes treason, then we’re in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it.”

Paul, who may be unique in American politics by actually believing what he says, stated that since Assange is an Australian, it was incomprehensible to claim that he was committing treason against America, a thought that seems to have escaped most other DC politicians or pundits.
