    Snowden On Trump: ''He is quite easy to understand'' ..Me, That is where everybody went wrong and why he ended being the president... Moron!!! Now you are an amateur psychologist??? I don't think so. Leave that to people who know him and for the following who understand him and for the country who elected him. Shut up and dribble your 15 minutes of fame. You are quite easy to code, categorize and cast. Trump is far more complex than it appears in the surface. Stick to what you know and to what is your narrow field and ''expertise'' . What ever the Freakish that is. That was quite and arrogant insult..

    Remember Dos 6.2 then 6.22 well it had a information tracker responding back to its mother ship . I found it in win 3.1 and 3.11 work groups nt . Amazing how we just didn’t know or care even back then ?

    Snowden’s proposed deal should involve full indemnity against prosecution in return for a full and truthful account of the government’s efforts to illegally spy on American citizens. I think his offer, while praiseworthy, is far too generous to government agencies. These agencies have repeatedly violated our 4th Amendment protections.

    I'm interested why CIA still did not find Snowden in Moscow? Every journalist is doing interviews with him, but allegedly CIA cannot find him. Is it possible, they want him to stay in Russia? Incidentally he should be grateful for Putin to allow him to stay in Russia. Otherwise he would be treated the same way how Chelsea Manning was treated.

    Snowden is 100 % right. USA, not only Russia, has interferred the elections in many countries in the world. Blaming Russia as the main actor behind their actual political chaos simply hides the fact that their democracy is sinking down nowhere in the history.

    Snowden is being hunted by the USA and they elect a Conman as the 45th president......totally bizarre.

    At 4:11 and 9:17 Edward Snowden suffered an assault from a particle beam. It interrupts the camera--and was likely aimed at Wernicke area to prevent him from engaging in fluid and perceptibly intelligent speech. Notice how he stumbles on his words directly after the camera interference. These devices do exist and they can alter memory and perception. They can make someone feel that they are being grazed on the skin. Snowden even makes an allusion to the device at 9:17- he “tries not to think about it”. Out of the people who are pulled through this process--they are tortured and forced “not to know” even though it was the assailants who gave their victims this knowledge to begin with. I heard talk that my father was executed this way the day before my second birthday in 1993. From what I heard eavesdropping, I was screeching over my fathers lifeless body which was still convulsing as if he’d been electrocuted. That’s a bit more than an agonal gasp typically associated with a heart attack. Since 1957 it has been publicly known that the heart can be stopped by overriding electrical activity in the medulla. I personally believe that the surveillance program mentioned has been weaponized. I’m currently undergoing torture by this device after being blacklisted in college. My father was an artist who died of a sudden and unexpected heart attack. Somehow there after, my mother began dating a CIA agent who apparently threatened her and I with death. He is recently deceased. I don’t call him by the name we knew him by because we never knew his real name. I firmly believe that my life in captivity amounts to torture by the UN convention against torture. The people doing this to me deserve to be hung for treason. I wish California’s state government would get around to it if the Federal government won’t.

    I enjoy listening to and watching Snowden’s more current videos explaining the surveillance state but I’ll bet a paycheck Snowden wishes he had put forth a more positive answer to the question about Trump; he may have been pardoned.

    Just popping in to remind everybody that this POS Snowden betrayed his country, violated a security clearance, then fled to Russia to sell so called "secrets" to them. He is a traitor NOT a whistleblower.

    Pathetic much? There is no difference between disclosing the state secret to an adversary or a journalist (who will disclose it to the entire wide world!!! including all of your adversaries all at once!). It's also pathetic to expect that Eric Holder (or any other AG) would be free to override the law.

    Snowden, just shut your treasonous trap. You are a master of disinformation. All of you fools who think he is JUST a whistleblower need to do ALOT more research into how he compromised our National Security, Call it what you want. Anyway, if he sneaks back here, he will simply “DISAPPEAR.”

    Ironically Russia has become the new Greenwich Village hangout for Soviet Era dissident types fleetingly fast afoot, refusing to be silenced by the now heavy handed Western measures of crowd control, attired in the scapegoat costumes of Snowden and Navalny; probably not at home, in house arrest a steppe away from the grave other world.

    "The law makes no distinction between someone who tells a secret to a journalist and someone who tells a secret to a foreign spy" (Snowden) There are many things the public does not need to know. Military matters, weapons systems, troop movements, top programs, etc. (Or something which could result in widespread civilian panic). The foreign spy might only reveal classified material to top people in his or her own government, where that info or material might remain quiet. The journalist might go public with information and materials and now the entre planet knows. (Good journalists know or should know the difference) That is why the law offers no distinction, Right or wrong. Fan or not a fan of ES, this is how I see the law. Every nation keep secrets for a reason. All that said, when our own elected officials spy on all of us and hide behind state secrets, this is really bad. "Spies exist to steal secrets. Journalism exists to reveal wrongdoing" Custos Nocte'

    Snowden should be brought back to the USA immediately by private jet to a hero's welcome. Send Brian Williams to Russia in his place. Snowden needs a 3 hour platform on National TV to explain how corrupt this miserable Swamp is.
