Please adhere to the following: Examine AT LEAST two (2) elements of white-collar crime and then determine whether or not defendant Julian Assange has committed a white-collar crime or any action that requires prosecution. Provide a rationale to support your position. Summarize the Espionage Act, and identify ONE (1) of the most significant portions of the Act, which you believe Assange infringed upon. Provide support for your opinion. Analyze the significance of the growing support for Assange and then examine the degree to which the support he receives is likely a result of his actions of committing a victimless and costless crime. Provide a rationale to support your response. As a result of a number of overwhelming facts surrounding this case, debate the likelihood of the Department of Justice categorizing Assange’s behavior as deviant. Next, determine ONE (1) possible effect on the pursuit of justice if the Justice Department does or does not consider Assange’s behavior deviant. Justify your response.
