(BREAKING WIDE) – US could gain up to $5m by pardoning Edward Snowden.

Edward Snowden, a contractor with the NSA, who leaked documents to journalists that exposed the United States mass surveillance of Americans’ telephone records refuted CNN claim that said he agreed to give up more than $5 million from book and speeches to the US government.

Edward Snowden responded to a CNN headline by tweeting: CNN badly misreported this.

A) This is not a settlement; I didn’t agree to it.

B) The judgement from this censorship case is not enforceable while I am in exile, but I’ve never had that much money anyway. Better headline: “US could gain up to $5m by pardoning Edward Snowden.”

A while back, Rep. Tusi Gabbard and Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced a bipartisan resolution calling for charges against Edward Snowden to be dropped. According to Rep. Matt Gaetz “Edward Snowden has been unfairly villainized and persecuted for disclosing the true scope of illegal government surveillance. This is unjust. The Ninth Circuit’s recent ruling, holding that the NSA’s bulk collection program was unconstitutional, vindicates him. Charges against Snowden should be dropped.”

Gabbard calls on the US government to drop all charges against Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, who both acted in the public interest by exposing illegal US mass surveillance, lies, corruption and war crimes.
