On this edition of Parallax Views, an refresher and update on the case of imprisoned whistleblower Reality Winner w/ Reality's mother Billie Winner-Davis. Reality Winner was an NSA contractor who leaked documents pertaining to allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S Presidential Election to the press because she felt it was pertinent information that the public needed to know about. When the federal government traced the documents to Reality she was put on trial and received a sentence of over 5 years in prison. Regardless what you think of Russiagate, whether it was overblown or is one of the most important stories of our time, the harsh treatment Reality Winner has received for attempting to conscientiously alert the public to an issue she believed was of importance is indicative of the dangerous nature of the United States War on Whistleblowers over the past two decades.
In addition to giving a refresher on Reality's case, Billie also fills us in on how Reality is doing in federal prison during this pandemic and discusses her concerns for Reality's mental health at this time, the possibility of coronavirus/COVID-19 making it's way into prison, and even tells us a little about Reality's artwork. All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views.
