Republicans in rush to prosecute Snowden

“Last week the American government happily operated in the shadows with no respect for the consent of the governed, but no longer,” he told the South China Morning Post. “Every level of society is demanding accountability and oversight.” Edward Snowden

The extent of the police state has been unmasked and the Govt. is not happy about it, Calls for prosecution abound from both parties;  “I don’t know exactly the law and I don’t know the extent to which he violated whatever law is there, but he’s got to be prosecuted,” Sen. Chuck Grassley said.   John Boehner called him a traitor, while Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) says he’s a “defector.”      Snowden is a threat to their one party rule. What he has unmasked here is that the leadership of both parties are actively working to build this police state. I am sure that what he released is only the tip of the iceberg. I am sure that the warrantless spying is much more extensive and in depth than exposed in the initial release of info.    People are finally starting to wake up to the true state of our Govt.  Let’s see what other info he has.
