You’re wrong. If you bothered to research him, you’d know. He never intended to seek asylum in Russia. His passport was rescinded while in transit, by our criminal government. This resulted in him being stuck in Russia. He couldn’t leave, without a passport.Yeah, my problem with Snowden is where he went and who he gave his bag of secrets to.The point is Snowden claims he did report what he thought was illegal up the chain of command within the NSA. He was told to shut up and do his job. He then witnessed the prosecution and imprisonment of whistle blowers like Bill Binney and John Kiriakou. He knew he wouldn’t be protected by our criminal government.He did something considered illegal? Is that what many if not most pardoned people do?
Secondly, if you think he gave secrets to the Russians you’re wrong, but the US State Department and intelligence agencies loves you.
