When it Rains, it Snows
U.S. intelligence has collected information that Russia is considering turning over Edward Snowden as a "gift" to President Donald Trump to curry favor. You may remember Snowden as the guy who copied and leaked classified NSA information back in 2013, revealing US domestic surveillance programs. Trump has previously stated that Snowden is a ‘traitor’ who deserves to be executed. Snowden’s lawyers are unaware of any plans to extradite him to the US, saying "This is some kind of speculation coming from so-called US special service sources." CIA Director Mike Pompeo has called for Snowden to be given the death sentence. If Snowden was extradited, it would signal warmer relations and cooperation between the Russia and the new administration while provoking controversy concerning surveillance and privacy.
