Edward Snowden no matter how controversial his leaks have been, does care about letting the American people know what is happening behind the scenes in our government and what he had to say about James Comey’s statement on wiretapping today made Comey look like the worthless FBI director that he is.
James Comey can’t seem to find anything or convict anyone even when all of the evidence is there to do it aka Hillary Clinton.
During his press briefing today Comey took a shot at presumably Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, WikiLeaks, and any other hackers or people that have released documents showing how corrupt our government has been.
This is what FBI Director Comey had to say about the intelligence leaks:
FBI Director James Comey on leaks to media: “This information can be deterred, and it can be deterred by locking some people up.”

But Snowden wasn’t going to sit back and let someone as incompetent as James Comey say something like this about him and responded with this.
You want to know how to stop the next whistleblower? Stop breaking the damn law.
— Edward Snowden (@Snowden)
Snowden is exactly right. If our government didn’t have so much to hide and wasn’t so scared about whistleblowers like Snowden and WikiLeaks then this wouldn’t be a problem at all.
