Former CIA employee Edward Snowden, who fled to Russia in 2012 after exposing the NSA’s wiretapping of all American citizens, responded to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement this Tuesday about not recommending charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by releasing a very telling tweet.
Released slightly after Comey made the announcement, the tweet featured a link to a story from the Wall Street Journal about the announcement and a frustrated emoticon face.
This was not his first tweet about the Clinton scandal. In early June, he issued a far more scathing one.
“Break classification rules for the public’s benefit, and you could be exiled,” It read. “Do it for personal benefit, and you could be president.”
Break classification rules for the public's benefit, and you could be exiled.
Do it for personal benefit, and you could be President.

Ironically enough in 2013,Clinton lambaste Snowden as a “traitor” and at the time she said “I can never condone what he did.”
Yet, not only does she commit a more heinous crime, but somehow the Department of Justice and the FBI are okay with condoning her actions.
