US ‘waging war’ on whistleblowers

E-mail Print PDF

The American government “is using its power to intimidate, prosecute and prevent government employees from sharing information about state officials’ misconduct”, insists Stephen Kohn, attorney and author of The Whistleblower's Handbook.

­This attack on whistleblowers in America is an attack on fundamental freedom of speech, “preventing the American people from learning about the abuses of their government,” warned the attorney.

It is government misconduct that the government wants to suppress the public ever learning about. It is the heart of the First Amendment,” Kohn continued, explaining that “the core of the First Amendment is the protection of the people who want to expose the misconduct of government.”

“We have to demand that our constitutional rights are protected, we have to take those claims to court, all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary, and we have to go to the Congress for the American people to fight for their rights,” the attorney called on Americans.
