Yesterday during a press conference President Trump was asked about pardoning Edward Snowden, making it the second time this week he has been asked, the President said, “I’m going to take a look at that very strongly.”
Something that prosecuting whistleblowing “Democratic” President Barack Obama said he wouldn’t consider until Snowden stopped running from the law, that was in 2016. I guess Barack didn’t like the fact that he was revealed to be even dirtier than we thought, I always knew.
Edward Snowden is a former contractor for the National Security Agency, who’s been living in exile in Moscow since fleeing the U.S. six years ago after revealing/leaking information on the nation’s most secretive spy agencies and their programs. Including government eavesdropping and illegal wirerapping all communications of Americans, in which they, the government, and its deep state representatives denied.
Trump said he is “not that aware of the Snowden situation,” but that people on both the left and the right are divided over the former contractor.
“It seems to be a split decision,” he said. “Many people think he should be somehow treated differently, and other people think he did very bad things.”
Snowden is an American hero who revealed the government’s dirty secrets to the world and cemented what we knew to be fact, and that’s that our government has been practicing Orwellian big brother warfare on its own citizens.
Federal prosecutors filed a criminal complaint against Snowden in 2013, charging him with theft, “unauthorized communication of national defense information” and “willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person.”
The freedom fighter expressed his approval of the President’s change of heart as he once labeled Snowden a “traitor” and even said he could be “executed” for his actions, either way, I feel this needs to happen and millions around the world feel the exact same way. #FreeSnowden
Here’s hoping the President will do the same with Julian Assange who is obviously the major key in the release of all those documents since he is the founder of WikiLeaks who is currently waiting to be extradited to the United States. At one point the conditions Assange is in were so bad 60 doctors urged the British prison that’s holding him to release him. #FreeAssange
Chelsea Manning is also being held without bail because she is not willing to cooperate with the government in its case against Julian Assange. #FreeChelsea
Not everyone is happy about this potential pardon to Snowden, and that’s former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice who served under President Obama, she was also on the shortlist for Joe Biden’s VP.
Go to Hell Susan and all your globalist friends and stick it, their time is over. Snowden should be allowed to return to the U.S. and Assange and Manning set free without facing criminal charges. Their revelations were vital to a much-needed reckoning of government overreach around the globe.
