I think he should be given some kind of plea bargain as long as he cooperates with the government in providing info about everyone who currently holds access to the data he took. Unfortunately he will set an example if he is given immunity. He took his... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Sacramento, CA
Not yet. He is a hero. But he splattered information indiscriminately. There are consequences for that. I think he needs to stay gone while all of this settles down and the damage assessed. Banishment is a penalty of itself for now. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Houston, TX
Since contractors are technically excluded from Whistlblower protections, he cannot lawfully be granted such protections however the power elite have long sought privatization of federal functions in large part precisely because such protections are... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Wood Dale, IL
I'm not sure immunity is the right question. Seems the question is whether he should be charged or not. I don't know why immunity should be considered. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Fort Worth, TX
What he did was wrong. There were better ways for him to go. I am worried about the information that he has given China and Russia. What he did was treason. He doesn't deserve to be allowed to live here unless he is in prison. He deserves to be... 6 years ago from a Republican in Rockville, MD
The NSA does some good things and bad things. snowden's leak, leaked out info regarding everything the NSA does; not just the bad. the media is to blame for constantly telling the entire world what is going on good and bad. 6 years ago from a Republican in Shelter Island Heights, NY
We don't really know exactly what he has done to qualify him as a "whistleblower" or whether it should be treason. It sounds like a "whistleblower" at this time. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Ivy, VA
Because the public does not hear the whole truth, (liberal media), I believe he should stand trial. I also think the directors of the CIA and NSA should also stand trial.
I believe Obama and "Killary" should stand trial for their parts in the... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Suburb Maryland Fac, MD
He should be granted immunity only to stop him from leaking any more sensitive information. If there is a way to punish him, I'm in favor of it. 6 years ago from a Republican in Waldwick, NJ
No, not fully. He should be punished for leaking the information but we must also thank him for revealing what the government was doing. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Brisbane, CA
He should be punished for revealing national secrets, but the government should have informed the public of the surveillance program. 6 years ago from a Green in Doylestown, PA
He should be protected as a whistleblower but he should be held accountable for sharing secrets with our enemy's, tough call. The real problem is how we got to a place that allowed this to happen or caused this to happen. 6 years ago from a Republican in Royersford, PA
These should be separate questions. Ed Snowden is probably guilty, he should stand trial. Just because a lot of good came out of his actions, doesn't mean they weren't illegal. Separately from that, the NSA and CIA need to be investigated. 6 years ago from a Green in New Almaden, CA
The verdict is still out determining the amount of damage he has caused by the information he released. I was leaning towards giving him immunity because of the reaction that was caused, but now it seems he released much more sensitive and potentially... 6 years ago from a Republican in Marion, MS
I do not have a solid basis to provide an answer for that. 6 years ago from a Democrat in La Jolla, CA
Yes and No. He should be granted immunity for disclosures of domestic surveillance and charged for disclosures of spying against hostile foreign powers like China and Russia. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Stillwater, MN
Do not know enough about what he revealed. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Beaumont, VA
Have him serve six months and issue an apology and then let him out because our prisons are overpopulated and he's not a violent offender. 6 years ago from a Green in New York, NY
I am not informed. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Tualatin, OR
I don't know, I need more information to make an educated decision. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Rollingbay, WA
Wait till completely sure that no U.S. Citizens were harmed by the information he leaked. 6 years ago from a Republican in Burke, VA
The US Government should be held accountable just like all the rest of us. 6 years ago from a Republican in Pigeon Forge, TN
He should face some consequences but the CIA and NSA directors need to be further scrutinized as well. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Southlake, TX
No. He successfully started the conversation about domestic surveillance, but he also revealed constitutional/lawful activity to protect national security. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Chicago, IL
No, I think that Edward Snowden broke a law, and if he is to be brought back without standing trial, we need to amend or abolish the current laws relating to the NSA's activities. However, I think that NSA and CIA need to be punished for this... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Pacifica, CA
No prosecutions, but investigations. We need to totally reevaluate our surveillance programs. However, Snowden DID break the law! He should be punished but not severely. 6 years ago from a Republican in Mendham, NJ
No, he should stand trial for breaking his contract. Prosecute the CIA and NSA directors as well. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Clarkston, GA
No, but the director of the NSA should also be prosecuted. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Ypsilanti, MI
