Ladar Levison, Lavabit Founder: 'Government Has Power To Take All Your Money And Freedom'

Though Levison noted he is not at liberty to reveal details about his case or acknowledge the role of the U.S. government in the shutdown of his company, Levison did tell host Mike Sacks, “Our federal government has the power to take all of your money and your freedom, and they’ve shown no shame in using those powers to get what they want and to punish people who speak out against them.”

He continued, “I kind of think the only reason I’m not in jail right now is because of all the media attention.”
