Edward Snowden is an american hero for exposing all the corruption in our government. He should be granted immunity and protected

@5ZCLL4WRepublicanfrom Florida  answered…2yrs

@6FZBSPDLibertarianfrom Maryland  answered…2yrs

Yes, he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act, and the directors of the CIA and NSA should be investigated.

@9ZSDTRFDemocrat from Tennessee answered…5mos

Yes, calling out your government on its wrongdoings should never be a crime.

@9J8M5THGreenfrom Guam  answered…2yrs

No, but he should return to stand a fair trial, with the aim of the trial being to clarify the boundaries between whistleblowing and espionage, which would include investigation of the US government, CIA, and NSA.

@5ZCVTY2Republicanfrom Kansas  answered…2yrs

No, he should be tried, but should he be convicted, he should be granted a pardon. We have a duty to uphold the law, and see justice prevail, but also a duty to see heroes are rewarded. This solution would address both issues at the same time.

@9J5KZXZIndependent from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection act and there should an investigation into the CIA and NSA.

@B47QR6RDemocrat from Georgia answered…1mo

Yes, he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act and should investigate the CIA and NSA directors.

@B45C97HPeace and Freedom from Pennsylvania answered…1mo

Yes, He should be returned but the CIA and NSA directors should be investigated.

@B3YTFJVConstitution from Mississippi answered…2mos

Nothing is going to happen to Snowden, he's an intelligence actor with a script.

@B3H5R4FWomen’s Equality from Oregon answered…2mos

I think he should be serving his time here while there is an investigation going on about this towards the CIA and NSA.

@B2ZJ84DDemocrat from Pennsylvania answered…3mos

@B2W2WDKLibertarian from Florida answered…3mos

He should be charged with breaking the code of conduct, but I don't think what he did compromised the countries safety, therefore he should be aloud to come back to the USA, charged with fines and given a normal life again. It was largely a victimless act

@B2RDT46Republican from New Jersey answered…4mos

If his actions warrant that he should be protected under the whistleblower protection act then he should be afforded that right. If it is proven in a court of law that he Is not protected under the whistleblower protection act then he should stay in trial and face the consequences of his actions. Regardless, the CIA and NSA directors should be investigated.

@9ZSTWMTDemocrat from Colorado answered…5mos

Yes, he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act, but due to the nature of the documents he shared he should not be allowed to have any connection to individuals with access to classified information.

@9ZHR5KZProgressive from Texas answered…5mos

Yes, and the US government should grant immunity to all whistleblowers.

@9ZGGVRFWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…6mos

Yes, he should be both protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act, AND the CIA, FBI and NSA should ALL be investigated. There is a reason he wanted the truth out there.

@9ZDM3W8Independent from Oregon answered…6mos

If he violated terms of his contract he should be tried, if that is all then his return should be considered

@9Z9VYFTTranshumanist from Texas answered…6mos

No, he should be returned to the U.S. to stand trial and face the consequences of his actions and the CIA and NSA directors should be investigated was well

@9Z32YL7Veteran from Michigan answered…7mos

If there is probable cause that he committed a crime against the United States then he should be held accountable. If no crime was committed then he should be allowed to return home.

@9YXLXJKConstitution from Mississippi answered…7mos

No he should not be allowed to return, but he should stand trial and face his consequences. I also feel that all of the CIA and NSA should be investigated.

@B24DPTZWorking Family from Texas answered…5mos

Yes, investigate the CIA and NSA directors instead also the elitists let the asians and african get away with alot

@B239734Peace and Freedom from Minnesota answered…5mos

No opinion, no previously known information to support anything.

@9ZS88YKGreen from Texas answered…5mos

Yes, he should be protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act and the federal government should investigate the CIA and NSA directors as well.

@9ZNSQDWIndependent from Kansas answered…5mos

No, but investigate the CIA and NSA directors, as well as force him to face the consequences of releasing highly classified intel.

@dscilliaPeace and Freedom from Alabama answered…7mos

No, but his legal defense and sentencing should give great weight to the fact that federal courts have since agreed that the activity he exposed was unconstitutional. His punishment should be relatively light, perhaps even considered to have already been served by his self-imposed exile.

@9XXLNR4Democrat from Michigan answered…8mos

I think he should be allowed back to the US. But no immunity needs to be given.

@9XY3C56Libertarian from Virginia answered…8mos

Not just immunity. He, and other individuals responsible for exposing government misconduct (e.g. Chelsea Manning, Julian Aussange, Daniel Hale) should be recognized as heros and receive public acclaim for their actions.

@9FQ3TTMSocialist from Washington answered…2yrs

@9FDV39HVeteran from Kentucky answered…2yrs

Absolutely. Snowden is an American hero, who exposed government surveillance for what it is. He should be pardoned for selling information to Russia, as well. He likely had to do that to ensure his survival.

@9X687Q9Democrat from Connecticut answered…9mos

@9VT7C5MRepublican from Alabama answered…11mos

Yes, grant full pardons to Edward Snowden and Julien Assange

@9VNBJNRConstitution from Virginia answered…11mos

Pardon Snowden, Investigate the CIA and NSA, and pass the Whistleblower Protection Act

@9VKZVYTRepublican from Tennessee answered…12mos

What's done is done about Snowden, he's gone. However, the NSA and other agencies should be investigated for spying on US citizens who have a right to privacy from their own government.

@9VD6GG5Peace and Freedom from Vermont answered…1yr

He should be guaranteed a fair trial by a jury of his peers.

@Jason-AbdulbakiLibertarian from Iowa answered…1yr

Yes, but if it is provable that an American died directly because of information he released then he should get a lower form of punishment as he didn't intend on that.

@9SQ9Q7GLibertarian from Minnesota answered…1yr

Yes, as long as it does not threaten violence and I don’t trust the government to define the boundaries of hate speech.

@9S7FL3TRepublican from Ohio answered…1yr

Yes, he should. He should also be given the Medal of Freedom. The NSA and CIA should be investigated, possibly remanded. The NSA should more likely be abolished. All files for both agencies should be released publically.
