KENNEDY: EDWARD SNOW DEN WANTS TO COME HOME. HOME.>>SNOWDEN KNOWS HE BROKE THE LAW WHEN HE DOWNLOADED 1.5 MILLION DOCUMENTS AS A NSA CONTRACTOR HE FUNNELED TO A PAIR OF WESTERN JOURNALIST, AND HE KNEW THAT U.S. GOVERNMENT WAS SPYING TO AMERICANS WITH A SERIES OF SECRET PROGRAMS AND LYING ABOUT IT, LOOK AT YOU JAMES CLAPPER. TO TAPPING INTERNET CABLES AND SWITCHES, NSA PROGRAMS WERE BREAKING AND ENTERING, SPYING THEN LYING, MAKING SNOWDEN’S CRIMES MINUSCULE BY COMPARISON. COULD NO LONGER BE MET WITH WE’RE PROTECTS YOU FROM BAD GUY’S PROPAGANDA, WE ENTERED TO 6 YEARS OF ON GOING DISCUSSION ABOUT MASS SURVEILLANCE AND ROLE OF THE SCOPE OF GOVERNMENT. TO THE 2016 CAMPAIGN SPYING FROM THE FBI TO THE DOJ, WE NEEDED THESE CHANGES, THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT THE SNOWDEN REVELATION. HE WANTS A FAIR AND OPEN TRIAL BUT WILL BE PROSECUTE THE OPAQUELY. THE TONE HAS BEEN SET BY SECRETARY OF STATE, AND PRESIDENT. WHO HAVE IN PAST, RESPECTIVELY CALLED FOR HIS DEATH SEPTEMBER 11 AND SE AND SENSND SENSED SENSE –SENTENCE AND EXECUTION,W SENSE –SENTENCE AND EXECUTION,E SENSE –SENTENCE AND EXECUTION,C SENSE –SENTENCE AND EXECUTION,U SENSE –SENTENCE AND EXECUTION,D DEBATE WHETHER SNOWDEN IS A TRADER. PRIVACY TOOLS HAVE EXPLODED, AS A RESULT, THERE IS STILL AN UNHEALTHY ABUSE OF POWER, THAT IS AN ON GOING MAGNET FOR CORRUPTION, LET A JURY OF SNOWDEN PEERS DECIDE HIS FATE. HE WILL THEN BE JOINED IN JAIL BY DEEP STATE POWER HOARDERS, WHO ARE TOO EAGER TO MAKE AND EXPLOIT LOOPHOLES TO MAKE US MORE VULNERABLE, THAT IS THE MEMO. ♪ ♪ KENNEDY: SNOWDEN ADMITTED TO CBS THIS WEEK THAT IT IS NOT HARD TO MAKE THE ARGUMENT THAT I BROKE THE LAW, BUT SHOULD HE LANGUISH IN AN AMERICAN PRISON OR WORSE, MOTTE MOSCE MOSCOW MORE OF MOSCOW FORE OF MOSCOW FOREVOF MOSCOW FOREVER. JASON, IS HE A TRADER?>>HE IS. HE DID BREAK THE LAW, BUT A LOT OF THINGS YOU SAID ARE TRUE, THERE IS PUBLIC BENEFIT TO WHAT HE HAD DONE. IF NOT SO MUCH UNBELIEVABLE CORRUPTION BETWEEN THE CIA AND NSA THERE WOULD BE NO ROLE FOR HIM TO LEAK. THERE IS BENEFIT, BUT UNDER THE ESPIONAGE ACT THERE IS MY JURY TO HEAR WHY THE MOTIVATION FOR THE LEAK HAPPENED. THERE IS NO ALLOWANCE ARE IN THAT, YOU BREAK THE LAW THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS. KENNEDY: YES. HOWEVER, HE IS ASKING FOR BASIC DUE PROCESS IS THAT TOO MUCH.>>ABSOLUTELY NOT, EVERYONE IS DUE THEIR DUE PROCESS. BUT I REMAIN CONFLICTED ABOUT SNOWDEN. I THINK THAT SYSTEMIC GOVERNMENT OVERREACH IS A PROBLEM. ILLEGAL COLLECTION OF DATA. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE RELEASE OF SOME OF THE INFORMATION WHICH HAS NATIONAL SECURITY IMPLICATIONS IS CONCERNING, BUT A FAIR TRIAL FOR EVERYONE, I DON’T THINK HE CAN GET ONE. I MIGHT PREFER HIM STAY IN MOSCOW. KENNEDY: I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY, SNOWDEN CLAIMS, I DO NOT PUT LIVES AT RISK, IF I DID, SHOW ME THE PROOF, I THINK IF THERE WAS PROOF, WHICH IS THAT POMPEO SAID IN 20 SKIN IN 201SKIN IN 2016KIN IN 2016 IN IN 2016 IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE PUBLIC.>>SNOWDEN’S CRITICS HAVE — HAVE NOT BACKED IT UP, HISTORY WILL JUDGE SNOWDEN. KINDLY IN MANY WAYS, BECAUSE HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE WAY THAT BIG TECH AND BIG GOVERNMENT HAVE GOTTEN TOGETHER TO SURVEIL OUR LIVES AND TRY TO TAKE POWER AWAY US FROM AS INDIVIDUALS AND GIVE THAT POWER TO BIG CORPORATIONS AND BIG GOVERNMENT HAD. HE IS NOT IN PRISON, BUT HE IS PAYING A PRICE, LIVING IN EXILE, AWAY FROM FAMILY, FRIENDS, FROM THE LIFE HE KNEW, THIS NOT NOTHING, HE CHOSE THAT AND KNEW. AND SO, YOU KNOW, IF IT IS NOT QUITE HONORABLE THIS IS A THING TO RESPECT A LITTLE BIT. KENNEDY: YES, AND YOU KNOW, HE SAW HE KNEW WHAT GOVERNMENT WAS DOING, INCRIIBLE TOO ME IS THAT NSA WITH THESE TOOLS DID NOT REALIZE ONE OF THEIR CONTRACTORS WAS TAKING THESE DOCUMENTS, SEEMS LIKE PIS POOR CYBER SECURITY.>>RIGHT. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG, AND LAWFUL AND UNLAWFUL. KENNEDY: WHAT IF HE TRIED LEGAL ROUTE.>>IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN AS EFFECTIVE.>>HE WOULD HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN. KENNEDY: YOU HAVE REPORTED ABOUT BILL BENNY, WHO WAS A SIMILAR WHISTLE-BLOWER WHO WAS PULL OUT OF SHOWERS THE GUN POINT BY FBI, AFTER HE MADE REVELATIONS VERY SIMILAR.>>GOVERNMENT DOES NOT LIKE WHISTLE-BLOWERS, IT WILL TAKE EVERY ACTION THEY CAN TOO TRY TO SHUT THEM DOWN, AND SNOWED SHUT THEM DOWN, AND SNOWDD SHUT THEM DOWN, AND SNOWDEN CASE SHOWS THAT A COMMITTED WHISTLE-BLOWER WITH PUBLIC INTEREST IN MIND CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, PERHAPS AT GREAT PERSONAL COST. KENNEDY: PEOPLE ARE VERY MAD AT HIM. BUT BECAUSE OF HIS WORK WE’VE BEEN ABLE TOO PULLBACK SOME OF THE LAYERS.>>THIS IS ABOUT THE PUBLIC. KENNEDY: — YES. A LOT OF PEOPLE, DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENT, LIBERTARIAN, WHO ARE CONFLICTED.>>ABSOLUTELY, I WAS AT A RALLY FOR WARREN, AND LEGISLATION TO PROTECT WHISTLE-BLOWERS IS ON HER LIST.>>WAIT UNTIL SOMEONE BLOWS A WHISTLE ON HER CAMPAIGN.

  1. The round table has only the narrative that Brennan wanted the world to have … These jerks dont have a clue what Snowden was REALLY doing … Believe me. He was only MADE to look "heroic" and "patriotic" for what he did. It was all a cover …. and part of the DEEP STATE plan. But now that Hillary lost, he cannot come back to the US…. 🤔. Not until we have another communist in the WH …….

  2. If Snowden broke the law, which he did, Snowden is subject to the punishment the law says. If the deep state players, known and unknown, broke the law, which many did – they are subject to the punishment the law says. Period. That’s what Mr. Snowden is saying, and he’s right. History will judge what Snowden did as peanuts compared to the evil of the deep state. If all the truth ever comes out, hint Mr. Barr / Mr. President, history will judge Snowden as a hero compared to the deep state players.

  3. @FOXbusiness pls, NO Jessica Tarlov. It's already an insult to viewers to push the incompetent, extremely bias Clinton lover with her whiny, very unpleasant voice on us on FOX NEWS. Most of us flip channels when she or the unbearable Juan Williams come on. Both are an insult to the viewers. Time for both to move on to CNN.

  4. The problem with what he did is it was against the law but maybe the law should be changed. When a person discovers that the people they are working for are breaking the law I believe it's their duty to expose it. This includes government and private. A confidentiality agreement should be null and void when laws are being broke. The problem with this is if they are exposed and it is clear that you knew, you are now an accomplice. Laws should be created that in the event of a crime, confidentiality agreements are no longer valid to protect employees that expose these crimes and the people exposed need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

  5. How is what Sowden did so much worse than what the SOB's that that tried to over throw President Trump ?
    None of them will be going to jail, so why should Sowden.

  6. Snowden did nothing wrong he just let the people know that the govt was breaking the laws and being above the law.

    Hillary destroyed evidence yet walked free

  7. How much u wanna bet he'd never see a courtroom they'd send him to NY with a meathead ex-cop cell mate sleeping guards and broken cameras 🤫

  8. LOL Snowden have lived so long in Russia that he started to believe in humanity again. He forgot what its like in US , there is no way he will get a fair trial.

  9. He's an AMERICAN HERO and he has had to suffer greatly for telling the people how dirty our leaders in government are and how they are imposing on our constitution which they should all be impeach everyone in Congress that had anything to do with it

  10. Snowden is a HERO. Our country is Supposed to protect Whistleblowers EVEN if the Whistleblowers are exposing gov. agencies such as the C.I.A., NSA, and several more. He exposed the Intel Agencies' wrongdoing the same as Assange exposes wrongdoing of people, no matter how important they are. Assange is also a Hero. Neither should return to the U.S. There are far too many STUPID people who bought the Dem Party propaganda that he & Assange are Traitors. Also, I want to know just what happened to Seth Rich, Epstein, and so many others who had associations with the Clintons!

  11. I support Edward Snowden and his actions to reduce the excessive power of the government against the people especially for a free country like the US. All this excessive surveillance situation came into existence when George W Bush was president, a president far more to the right than Trump…

  12. I am glad Kennedy mentioned what the FBI did to William Binney who blew the whistle within the constraints of the government.

  13. The others who used spying to overthrow a duly elected president should be executed, Snowden did us a favor and should eventually walk out.

  14. I think Snowden should be welcomed back and receive a hero's welcome. He was so very brave to protect us American citizens against what the government and the globalists we're doing to us. He exposed them and they're illegal sneaky way the government spied on Americans. I hope President Trump will let him come back.

  15. Snowden would be a good presidential candidate in being able to drain the swamp. He is someone who truly cares about all of us American citizens and risked his freedom for us.

  16. We're really largely talking about the Espionage Act which is spurious in nature as it is.
    It's not as though he were violating a law whereby to qualify for due process.
    Which itself establishes how WRONG his sentencing is! That he can't receive due process, that's outrageous!
    CLEARLY American justice has departed from any vestige of justice, and that's abundantly clear in that Obama and Hillary face no indictments or punishment for ALL THEIR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!

  17. I knew What our Lying government was doing before Edward SNOWDEN. And our government is still abusing their power, by spying on us, at least on me,, just because they can, they call me a terrorist and a national security risk.. Yes Edward was right the NSA are the CRIMINAL..

  18. Do NOT believe Elizabeth Warren,, there will never be a legislative law to protect WHISTLEBLOWERS , I have been punished, and harrassed for over 32 years by our government agents for What I seen some of them do,, I 've been blackballed from getting Employment, I had vicious rumors spreader about me, These people lie on me to justify them coming in and out of my home,,", A real living nightmare for me,,,, they never stop…

  19. What Snowden leaked to Greenwald is probably not even 1% of the dirt on the Deep State. Conservatives who have a problem with Snowden are just as pathetic as the snowflake progressives.

  20. Treason requires an armed conflict with an enemy who has attacked or prosecuted a war against the United States. Snowden cannot be charged with treason. Read the constitution. Read the US statutes. Read the Aaron Burr trial.

  21. Pardon him and Assange. They should be looked at as heroes, not criminals. What they've done was nothing but, expose the evil within our own government…

  22. I’m confused about this woman’s sarcasm…..is it ok for the government to spy on us? I don’t think Snowden is a traitor, he’s courageous! Look at the demonic democrats, I think he did wrong and he did repent….BIG government is the criminal!!!! free him!!!! GOD BLESS HIM Numbers 6:24-26

  23. No, he's a Brennan CIA mole. Who goes in media parade when running for their life? Let him be tried for what he did.

  24. It says much about the state of our nation, when we exile our whistleblowers that expose wrong doing to nations like Russia, then turn around and talk in perpetuity about how much freedoms we have compared countries like China and Russia. The irony of ironies!

  25. He should be granted a FULL PARDON by Our President Trump… PERIOD… no buts..!!

    The CORRUPTION he exposed FAR FAR out ways ANY crimes he has violated…!!!

  26. What a bunch of Shills. What person over the age of 5 would think that it is treasonous to benefit the US population? What person thinks Snowden is a traitor and should be prosecuted when the things he was reporting were in and of themselves treasonous acts committed by the NSA, et al.

    IT IS NOT TREASON TO REPORT TREASON.

  27. He should not come back! He is more secure where he is. The deep state is still at power – even the elected president Trump is not secure until he rout out the real totalitarian in the government!!!

  28. Criminals are running our Governments and my objections are not being forwarded. If you don't want comments dont ask for them

  29. I wish Snowden was working at his job under the current administration. I think he'd be exposing lots of $#!T that's going on right now.

  30. The government was caught lying and spying on the American people. Why are you punishing Mr. Snowden for doing the right thing ?

  31. NSA employees didnt go to jail for collecting data illegally, and crossed the line on invading our right in law to privacy. He let us know what was happening in our government. If snowmen gos to jail. The Nsa should go to

  32. Stay away, only you will be prosecuted..the elite and deep state will never be prosecuted..NEVER EVER..don't even try to make a deal cause they will find a way out of it.

  33. He steals confidential information from the government and distributes it. Then he wants to set the terms he’s willing to accept to grace the US with his presence. This guys too much. He’s right to want a jury trial. They don’t tend to be objective. He’s a likable, clean cut white guy. Chances are he’d get off. Maybe he’d get a watered down charge worst case.
