    White House, Lawmakers Rejecting Edward Snowden's Plea For Clemency

    WASHINGTON -- WASHINGTON (AP) The White House and the leaders of the intelligence committee in Congress are rejecting National Security Agency-contractor Edward Snowden's plea for clemency."Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law," White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer said about the former systems-analyst-turned-fugitive who has temporary asylum in Russia.
    "He should return to the U.S. and face justice," Pfeiffer said, adding when pressed that no offers for clemency were being discussed.
    Snowden made the plea in a letter given to a German politician and released Friday. In his one-page typed letter, he asks for clemency for charges over allegedly leaking classified information about the NSA to the news media. "''Speaking the truth is not a crime," Snowden wrote.

    He's probably never gonna come back to the US again. Better figure something out cuz i believe his "amnesty" in Russia is over this summer i believe. Maybe a EU country will accept him with the latest revelations?

    It looks like lawmakers are on the side of those who spying on us.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    He'll come back to stand trial. He can't hid behind Putin's apronstrings forever.

    Yea... Taking someone out who tells the truth and exposed embarrassing and most likely illegal thing our country does. Do you not like the truth? Is telling the truth now a punishable by death offense?

    Exposing illegal and unnecessary acts? Embarrassing our leaders?

    My preference would have been that Snowden exposed this to the oversight committee and not the UK paper. Unfortunately it's getting to the part were it's causing great harm.
