I say this as a Trump supporter.

Putin isn't letting Snowden stay in Russia out of the goodness of his heart.
What is it costing Snowden for Putin to let him stay in Russia? Giveaway Hint: valuable national defense secrets of the U.S.
You and I, we don't agree here. Snowden is a traitor in my view. He did this to get his own 5 minutes of fame. If Snowden did the same anywhere else, he would be regarded as a traitor as well. He would be regarded as a traitor in Taiwan or China or Great Britain or Russia or Germany if he was a citizen who was entrusted with a security clearance and sensitive information of any of those countries and he did the same thing to them. A lot of these countries wouldn't even bother giving a trial to people they regard as traitors either and would simply hang or assassinate them quite frankly speaking.

He knew that leaking the intel could get him killed but he did it anyway. I believe he lived in fear for years. If he wanted fame, he would have become an actor in his teens rather than work for the NSA. He could have played a notso hot, nerdy Neo.

I am sure the more liberal Congressmen would have leant a sympathetic ear to Snowden's concerns without endangering national security.I just said there is no legal recourse for Whistleblowers in intelligence agencies. Weren't you paying attention?
