Prez, talking about Snowden.
If it's illegal to expose the illegal shit your government is doing, you're no longer in a country with rule of law, you're living in a rogue state that is no longer law abiding, thus can no longer apply the law, it has lost this authority the moment it did something illegal.
That's part of why there is division of powers, sadly the judiciary is just as corrupt, in contempt of the law and won't lift a finger.
If your country isn't anymore rule of law, by definition there can't be treason since treason is part of the law that you're conveniently ignoring.
You can't pick and choose which law you apply and which law you ignore, you either apply the whole law OR no laws apply anymore cause you're full of shit and living in a rogue state.
Arguing anything else is utterly illogical and pure nonsense. We abolished monarchy long ago in part to get rid of that law cherry picking bullshit.
That is a stupid ass assessment of the situation, your trying to justify this assholes actions and there is no justify it no matter how you slice it.
Its like someone gettign a job at a Slaughter house and not thinking your not going to be slaughtering the cows there. Thats fucked up delusional thinking. He knew what he was getting himself into when he took that job, and I dont care what the fuck he or anyone else thinks about it. its treason.
The more and more you think about it, it leave you wondering if that was his whole intention to begin with, get a job and leak the information.
