President Trump Considers Edward Snowden Pardon

President Donald Trump says he's considering a pardon for Edward Snowden – the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor who leaked information about U.S. intelligence collecting data back in 2013. The president's most recent comments differ from his 2013 comments about Snowden when he labeled him a traitor and suggested he should be executed for his crimes. Now he's saying, quote, "there are a lot of people that think that [Snowden] is not being treated fairly" by U.S. law enforcement and that he's going to start looking at a pardon. Just last September, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Snowden after he allegedly violated a non-disclosure agreement by releasing a book without submitting it to intelligence agencies for review first. Snowden's lawyers say not only should he be pardoned, but all possible charges should be dropped as well. His lawyer also said his actions were not crimes, but were in the best interests of the world when he leaked classified information about government spying to the press. Snowden has been living in exile in Russia since 2013.

This would be Trumps ultimate slap-in-the-face to the US Intelligence Community.

As niece Dr. Mary L. Trump said regarding Donald Trump; "He is dangerous and belongs nowhere near the White House."

The greatest slap in the face from the intelligence came against Trump in the form of testimony in Adam Schiff's house hearings.

All Trump said, and I heard it, was he would look into the Snowdon matter.

We had rogue agents go to work to impeach Trump.

You forgot to mention what the deceased brother of Donald said about the niece Trump. She disgraced herself and the family.
