Trump Allegedly Planning To Consider A Pardon For Edward Snowden

Donald Trump, the President of the United States recently mentioned that he would contemplate exonerating Edward J. Snowden. It is to be noted that Snowden is the former National Security Agency contractor who underwent felonious charges after leaking secret documents about massive government monitoring.

The President’s comments indicate a major shift. This is because, he recurrently disparaged Snowden as a “traitor” and a “spy who should be executed” in the years prior to his election. The revelations by Snowden, who sought refuge in Russia in 2013, led to a nationwide debate about monitoring and discretion.

Over the past week, rumors about a pardon for Snowden have grown significantly subsequent to the President’s comment on the case in an interview with the New York Post.

Notably, a pardon would be a chance to come back to the US, for the former NSA contractor. In 2013, he was charged by the authorities for not abiding by the Espionage Act, which brings a jail decree. Hitherto, numerous human rights groups suggested President Barack Obama to pardon Snowden. Nonetheless, none of them were successful.
