There is a campaign afoot by folks like George Soros, Daniel Radcliffe, Susan Sarandon; other guys of the Left including Steve Wozniak and Jimmy Wales; the ACLU, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International to get President Barack Obama (D) to pardon Edward Snowden. It’s not beyond the realm of possibility, either; recall President Bill Clinton’s (D) pardon frenzy in his last days in office.
Anthony Romero, ACLU’s National Director, even acknowledges that Snowden broke the law, but that shouldn’t matter—there are mitigating circumstances.
No. If Snowden truly believes what he did was a righteous act of civil disobedience or an act of whistle-blowing or that there are mitigating circumstances, let him come back to the US, stand trial for his actions, and make his case to the nation and to its representatives in his case, the jury of his peers.
