In this video Luke Rudkowski interviews Lavabit founder Ladar Levison, about the private email client that Edward Snowden used, the U.S government’s attack on Lavabit and the ethical decision Ladar had to make ending his company. Ladar goes into details about how the U.S government tried to intimidate him and forced him to shut down when they requested to spy on Edward Snowden’s emails.

“I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations. “
