Jesselyn Radack, National Security & Human Rights Director, Government Accountability Project
Radack works primarily with whistleblowers – including those from the Defense Department, Department of Homeland Security, NSA and CIA – with special focus on torture, secret surveillance and political discrimination. She represented former NSA official and whistleblower Thomas Drake throughout the government's unsuccessful prosecution of him under the Espionage Act. She then represented CIA torture conduct whistleblower John Kiriakou, who is the sole CIA agent sent to jail in connection with the U.S. torture program, despite never having tortured anyone.
