Lawrence Wilkerson: ‘Arrogance of Power’ Behind Arrest of Meng Wanzhou in Canada for US Extradition

In a new interview with Greg Wilpert at The Real News, Lawrence Wilkerson, a College of William & Mary professor and former chief of staff for United States Secretary of State Colin Powell, challenged the US government pushing the arrest in Canada of Meng Wanzhou.
