I am not holding my breath, if anyone was actually going to get prosecuted for what is pretty obviously a clear cut case of trying to undermine a federal election then it would have happened by now.
I don’t know what to think about him. I have about 4000 questions that it would take a panel of Foreign Policy, Data Security, Free Speech, and Legal Experts to answer. That’s just about the leak. I haven’t even begun the calculus on living in exile, and letting his life and citizenship be a prop for Putin.
I was thinking he might “accidentally” fall from a building, or “somehow” get poisoned, once this is all over TBH.
You’re defending Russia by claiming (without proof) that Snowden conveniently “destroyed documents” before he got there - even though those very same documents are what he uses to gain his fame, fortune & adulation. Read more
When he did his leak and run, I’m not sure he was working for Putin back then. Could have been, but I wouldn’t say it for sure. But now, he’s taken a loyalty oath to Russia which is run by...
Another part of the problem is how the intel is gathered is also very valuable intel. It’s part of why people were so mad at Trump, he kept giving away secrets about our intel apparatus. Snowden did it too. Read more
If you don’t think that two of the world’s most extensive, invasive & powerful intelligence organizations wouldn’t know exactly who works at the NSA, that one of their employees was travelling within their reach, and that that they didn’t avail themselves of obtaining any and all the information he was carrying, and… Read more
What supposed crimes Obama may or may not have done isn’t the issue here. There’s a process in place for Snowden to expose wrongdoing. He chose not to use that process. And chose instead to provide US intelligence to China and Russia - countries with some of the worst human rights violations on the planet on record - b… Read more
Oh, right. Being a racist fuck betraying your country isn’t offensive. But pointing out that inconvenient fact is.
For real though. Do they think that dude is still there because Putin thinks he’s such a cool guy? He’d be on the bus next to Britney Griner on the way to the gulag.
Yeah, regardless of his original motivations, hes stuck now, especially since he has a family. And hes probably not real motivated to die a martyr for a country that labelled him a traitor and whose actions got him stuck in russia in the first place.
Other whistleblowers did. And he did break the law, whether or not you liked what he did.
I don’t think it’s relevant and I don’t believe the reasons given. He defected to Russia. That was the plan all along.
