President Trump Reconsiders Whistleblower Edward Snowden After Obama-gate Spying Scandal

The president is changing his tune on Snowden.

Published

President Donald Trump is rethinking his position on NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, the man who he once said should be “executed.”

President Trump brought up Snowden in the context of Obama-gate, the attempt by the previous administration to undermine and sabotage the Trump White House that has disgraced the intelligence community.

“There are a lot of people that think that he is not being treated fairly. I mean, I hear that,” Trump said to the New York Post in an exclusive interview inside the Oval Office, before talking to his staff about Snowden.

“When you look at [former FBI Director James] Comey and [former FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe, and [former CIA Director John] Brennan — and, excuse me, the man that sat at this desk, President Obama, got caught spying on my campaign with Biden. Biden and Obama, and they got caught spying on the campaign,” Trump added.

The illegal spying conducted against Trump and his presidential campaign has given the man a different perspective on the issue, and it seems to have affected his opinion of Snowden.

“Snowden is one of the people they talk about. They talk about numerous people, but he is certainly one of the people that they do talk about,” Trump said on Thursday.

“I guess the DOJ is looking to extradite him right now? … It’s certainly something I could look at. Many people are on his side, I will say that. I don’t know him, never met him. But many people are on his side,” he continued.

“I’ve heard it both ways. From traitor to he’s being, you know, persecuted. I’ve heard it both ways,” the president added.

This is quite the departure from Trump’s previous view of Snowden, which he held for many years, that he should be punished for exposing the deep state’s spying capabilities:

Big League Politics has reported on Snowden’s desire to return home if he can receive a fair trial that is not a railroading by the deep state:

Whistle-blower Edward Snowden, who has been in exile in Russia since releasing documents exposing the spying capability of the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013, desires to return home and face the music for his controversial actions that have made him the scorn of the deep state.

“I would like to return to the United States. That is the ultimate goal. But if I’m gonna spend the rest of my life in prison, the one bottom line demand that we have to agree to is that at least I get a fair trial. And that is the one thing the government has refused to guarantee because they won’t provide access to what’s called a public interest defense,” Snowden said during an interview with “CBS This Morning.”

Snowden is releasing a memoir, “Permanent Record,” in which he details his life in Russia and explains in detail his motives behind exposing the NSA’s ubiquitous spying program.

“Again, I’m not asking for a parade. I’m not asking for a pardon. I’m not asking for a pass. What I’m asking for is a fair trial. And this is the bottom line that any American should require,” Snowden said.

“We don’t want people thrown in prison without the jury being able to decide that what they did was right or wrong. The government wants to have a different kind of trial. They want to use special procedures they want to be able to close the courtroom, they want the public not to be able to go, know what’s going on,” he added.

If he can actually secure a fair trial of his peers, Snowden believes that a jury would acquit him for exposing government behavior that was committed in total secrecy and violated the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“And, essentially, the most important fact to the government and this is the thing we have a point of contention on, is that they do not want the jury to be able to consider the motivations. Why I did what I did. Was it better for the United States? Did it benefit us or did it cause harm? They don’t want the jury to consider that at all,” Snowden said.

“They want the jury strictly to consider whether these actions were lawful or unlawful, not whether they were right or wrong. And I’m sorry, but that defeats the purpose of a jury trial,” he added.

The president might want to consider bringing back Snowden and making him the Director of National Intelligence considering how Obama-gate has vindicated the whistleblower’s actions. Snowden currently living in Russia, with Russian President Vladimir Putin granting him asylum.

Trump’s DHS Ignores Far-Left BLM/Antifa Terrorists, Declares So-Called ‘White Supremacists’ to Be Top Domestic Terror Threat

Cops are being shot in the street.

Published

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is the latest Trump administration official to fold to the left-wing narrative to demonize white people, claiming that so-called “white supremacist extremists” are the real terrorist threat, and refusing to name ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter as the top domestic terror threats in the U.S.

“White supremacist extremists, from a lethality standpoint over the last two years, particularly when you look at 2018 and 2019, are certainly the most persistent and lethal threat when we talk about domestic violent extremists,” Wolf said while addressing senators – citing no figures to back his assertion up.

In addition to peddling deep state nonsense against white people, Wolf also parroted talking points about how the evil Rooskies are going to interfere in this election. He claimed that “Russia looks to denigrate former Vice President Biden” and that they are undermining U.S. elections. He seemed to give Iran and China a pass when addressing those hostile nations though.

Wolf’s comments show that the DHS is as compromised as the FBI. Big League Politics has reported about how the FBI has covered for ANTIFA/BLM terrorists while putting the focus on white supremacists as cities are razed by organized gangs of roving savages:

As Black Lives Matter (BLM) and ANTIFA wage war on the streets of America, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is concerned about making sure the thugs stay safe from their opponents as they lay waste to cities throughout the country.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced in a press release on Wednesday that FBI agents had apprehended 42-year-old El Paso resident Manuel Flores for allegedly “posting a threatening communication over the Internet.”

In the offending video, Flores allegedly made several racial slurs and dared BLM activists to try to “stop him” from exercising his Constitutional rights. This caused the feds to intervene in order to protect the organized movement of rioters destroying the country.

“Our office will treat any threats of violence against protesters extremely seriously,” U.S. Attorney John Bash wrote in a statement released over Twitter.

The FBI has carried water for the left-wing agitators since the beginning of the nationwide riots, doing everything they can to paint conservatives and right-wingers as the real threat…

The deep state clearly wants these riots to continue, as it may be their only chance to avoid the Trump administration’s reprisal for their illegal Russian collusion witch hunt and various other criminal activities.

The president’s administration has been subverted and is working to demonize white people for the globalists. The systemic hatred against white people is rising, and the Department of Homeland Security is fanning the flames of this hatred with nonsense.
