(BREAKING WIDE) – Tusi Gabbard: Join Me and Urge Congress to Pass this Bipartisan Legislation Calling for Charges Against Edward Snowden and Assange to be Dropped.

Rep. Tusi Gabbard is moving mountains to see charges dropped against Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks website who was charged with conspiracy in trying to access a classified U.S. government computer with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning in 2010 and Edward Snowden, a contractor with the NSA, who leaked documents to journalists that exposed the United States mass surveillance of Americans’ telephone records.

Gabbard in a tweet invites you to join her movement and have charges against Edward Snowden and Julian Assange dropped and to reform the EspionageAct.

Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected.

Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.

Earlier this week, Tulsi Gabbard  and  Matt Gaetz introduced H.Res.1162, a resolution calling for the Federal government to drop all charges against Edward Snowden, a whistleblower who exposed illegal and unconstitutional acts of mass surveillance of Americans by the United States government.

According to Rep. Tusi Gabbard:

“We continue to see attacks on American civil liberties by aggressive surveillance policies within our own government, trading on the fears of the American people. This occurred under both Democratic and Republican administrations, while a few brave whistleblowers came forward to lift the curtain on the Constitutional threats we faced. Edward Snowden has been persecuted for bravely exposing massive illegal government surveillance of all Americans — a finding backed up by U.S. courts as recently as last month. Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress saying this program did not exist, and suffered no consequence whatsoever.” “All charges against Edward Snowden should be dropped. We need to protect whistleblowers, not the powerful elite,” she said.

Some disagree with her: It’s one thing if they were whistle blowers, but they weren’t. Snowden took battle plans and other national secrets with him, requiring the govt to spend millions to redo them. He also sought asylum in Russia so we have no idea what he disclosed to them.
