"Since Barrett was arrested in September 2012, he has undergone an incredible degree of harassment at the hands of the feds, which are quite frankly not just exacting revenge on him, but also demonstrating how terrified they are of his capability, determination and courage. They want to lock this guy up and throw away the key, which is precisely what they initially tried to do by threatening him with over a century in prison. Ultimately, Barrett received a five year sentence earlier this year, of which he had already served about half. Being the guy that he is, Barrett has been conducting interviews from prison with various media personalities (with Infowars and Sam Seder), and most recently had been in discussions with Glenn Greenwald to write for the Intercept. This didn't please the Bureau of Prisons all that much, and immediately after his email correspondence with Glenn, his email account was suspended." (04/06/15)
