Snowden would get on the first plane back USA if he was allowed to give testimony..He has requested this and been refused with a remark he would not be subject to enhanced interrorgation if he came in voluntarily;;... Go figure.
His last intervew made this clear.
He broke the law, OK, but he did attempt to use a whistleblower option but was warned off by superiors.
His information did not put anyone in harms way militarely, only those who have absconded from the constitution and legal ethics within the system.
If Trump doesn't realize this and goes forward hammering Snowden, there will be repurcussions. Surely that is the reasoning as to why he remains in a foriegn nation..
That said, aspects of our NSA can not be released publically, it would endanger military, undercovers, ETC. From any rearch I have done Ed did not jepordise our troops, or agents .
Unlike Hillary he is not on the inside, her traitorous acts outweigh Snowdens. She did take an oath, she may not remember ( so she says) could Snowden do the same, unlikely.
As Trump stated we are all equal, if so Hillary is guilty of much more that Ed. Touchy subject, yes-no, mayby.
Here we have the peon hireling and the fat cat insider, weigh in the balance- the treatment.
