Russia may give Edward Snowden to Donald Trump

From NBC News:

U.S. intelligence has collected information that Russia is considering turning over Edward Snowden as a “gift” to President Donald Trump — who has called the NSA leaker a “spy” and a “traitor” who deserves to be executed.

That’s according to a senior U.S. official who has analyzed a series of highly sensitive intelligence reports detailing Russian deliberations and who says a Snowden handover is one of various ploys to “curry favor” with Trump. A second source in the intelligence community confirms the intelligence about the Russian conversations and notes it has been gathered since the inauguration.

Oh how I wish this is true. Edward Snowden stole millions of classified documents. He leaked these stolen classified documents to various newspapers and publications. He then fled to China and then Russia with the stolen classified documents.

We will never know how much of the stolen classified documents Snowden shared with China and Russia. My guess is that he shared everything. I doubt China would have allowed him to leave if he had not first given them everything he had. The same theory applies to Russia. Vladimir Putin would never send Snowden back to the United States if he still had classified information Russia did not have. That’s not the way it works.

Edward Snowden is a traitor, a thief, and terrible human being. I don’t like Donald Trump. I didn’t vote for Donald Trump. I don’t agree with Donald Trump on many things. If a Trump presidency means Edward Snowden is finally extradited to the United States so that he can stand trial, a small part of me would be happy with Trump being our president.

Just to be clear, that part is so small you would probably need an electron microscope to see it.

Glenn Greenwald is an idiot

Glenn Greenwald, the journalist made famous for helping Edward Snowden leak top-secret classified documents to the world, went to Twitter and quoted the great Godfrey Elfwick.

The problem is that Godfrey Elfwick is not a real person. It’s a parody account.

I don’t know why Greenwald quoted someone who isn’t real to make a point. I imagine he went to Twitter and grabbed the first tweet that he believed confirmed his opinion. Too bad he didn’t first google “Godfrey Elfwick” before sharing the tweet with his 818,000 Twitter followers. Then again, if they’re following Glenn Greenwald on Twitter, they probably don’t care too much about the truth.

Glenn Greenwald seems to be addicted to misquoting and defaming Sam Harris.

I imagine as soon as Greenwald realizes Godfrey Elfwick is a fake Twitter account, he’ll make a correction to his Twitter feed. Right now, it looks like he’s too busy searching Twitter for people who initially said the attack in Quebec City was Muslim on Muslim violence and have since not made corrections.

The lone terrorist in Quebec City was not Muslim. He was an anti-immigrant white man. This cowardly terrorist murdered six innocent people as they prayed in the mosque.

I’m confident as soon as Glenn Greenwald is done telling people on Twitter to cast the splinter out from their eyes, he’ll remove the plank from his own.
