On the second episode of Yahoo News’ Skullduggery podcast, co-hosts Michael Isikoff and Dan Klaidman sit down with author and whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, whom the White House once called “the most dangerous man in America,” after he leaked the Pentagon Papers exposing the American government’s lies about the Vietnam War. Ellsberg speaks with Skullduggery about the new hit movie, “The Post,” which centers around the Pentagon Papers scandal, his thoughts on today’s whistleblowers Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, and whether President Trump’s war of words with North Korea could trigger a nuclear war.
