Josh Sigurdson reports on the recent news that Trump is considering possibly pardoning Edward Snowden.
Following a New York Post article and interview, news broke that President Donald Trump said that “A lot of people think that Edward Snowden is not being treated fairly.” Trump went on to say he’s looking very closely at possibly pardoning Snowden.
Edward Snowden is renowned for NSA leaks which lead to his exile in Moscow.
The fact that people who expose criminality and corruption are the ones in hiding or in cages says everything you need to know about modern society. Ross Ulbricht has been locked in a cage for years for building a website. Michael Edwards has been locked up for 27 years for a non-violent offense. Julian Assange has been locked up and is reportedly being tortured for passing on facts from other people.
This needs to end now. Trump’s presidency could potentially be saved by pardons. Besides, it’s the right thing to do regardless. These innocent people should not be in cages for telling the truth or for non-violent offenses.
