In a London criminal court, the famed whistleblower who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971 has said Julian Assange’s Wikileaks disclosures about war crimes was of equal significance. Daniel Ellsberg also said accusations by the US Government that Mr Assange had put lives at risk by publishing the names of US informants had not been borne out by the evidence. Australian-born Assange is fighting against being sent to the United States, where he’s charged with conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law over the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011. #WikiLeaks #JulianAssange For more from ABC News, click here: https://ab.co/2kxYCZY You can watch more ABC News content ad-free on iview: https://ab.co/2OB7Mk1 Subscribe to us on YouTube: http://ab.co/1svxLVE Go deeper on our ABC News In-depth channel: https://ab.co/2lNeBn2 You can also like us on Facebook: http://facebook.com/abcnews.au Or follow us on Instagram: http://instagram.com/abcnews_au Or even on Twitter: http://twitter.com/abcnews
