Snowden Charged With “espionage”, Theft In NSA Case

snowden Snowden charged with espionage, theft in NSA case

WASHINGTON — Edward Snowden, the former government contractor who says he revealed that the National Security Agency collects Americans’ phone records and Internet data from U.S. communication companies, now faces charges of espionage and theft of government property.

Snowden is believed to be in Hong Kong, which could complicate efforts to bring him to a U.S. federal court to answer charges that he engaged in unauthorized communication of national defense information and willful communication of classified communications intelligence information.

In addition to those charges, both brought under the Espionage Act, the government charged Snowden with theft of government property. Each crime carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

The one-page criminal complaint against Snowden was unsealed Friday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., part of the Eastern District of Virginia where his former employer, government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, is headquartered, in McLean.

The complaint is dated June 14, five days after Snowden’s name first surfaced as the person who had leaked to the news media that the NSA, in two highly classified surveillance programs, gathered telephone and Internet records to ferret out terror plots.

  1. Don’t we charge the government with the same thing since they have violated the Constitution? Government is not a god you know. They slave for the people not the other way around but too many ploticians hungry for control and drunk on power see it the other way around.

    Remove the negro and his racist handlers. Charge them with treason. Spank them in jail.

    I have deduced a spell to be cast on the demonic people in office.

    Removing the negro will be hard, but not impossible. America must learn the spell of the Constitution so we can use it against the pagans in Congress, the White House, the Supreme Court.

    When practiced the spell will reduce your leaders to nothing but lamp stands. I have deduced the spell to these magic words below. Practice them, repeat them over and over and do them at you will CAST the spell on your demon leaders. If millions do it we will have our country instantly back.

    HERE is the spell: It is over 200 years old and still works!

    Simply do not OBEY any law that is not Constitutional! You have no obligation to obey it and can be legally ignored. If millions of us do it at all levels of society they will not have power over us ever.

    Read the Constitution, learn the spell, practice the magic.
