The former CIA employee Edward Snowden responded quite aptly to FBI Director, James Comey’s announcement about not recommending charges against Hillary Clinton, in a single tweet. Snowden, who fled to Russia back in 2012 after revealing the NSA’s wiretapping of all American citizens, wrote the tweet shortly after Comey made the announcement. It features a link to a story from The Wall Street Journal related to the announcement. The link is accompanied by an appropriately frustrated emoji.
All Americans feel your pain, Mr. Snowden. Here is his tweet:

But this is not the first time Snowden has expressed his disapproval via a tweet about the Clinton scandal. Back in June, he had issued a scathing one which read as:
“Break classification rules for the public’s benefit, and you could be exiled.
Do it for personal benefit and you be President.”
It is such an irony because according to The Daily Caller, Clinton had labeled Snowden as a “traitor” with “blood on his hands” back in 2013. At the time she said that she could never condone what Snowden had done.
Apparently, transmitting classified information on a personal server and blatantly lying to the public about what inspired the 2012 Benghazi attack on U.S Consulate, is what she can condone. And so can the Department of Justice and FBI. The former followed up on Comey’s recommendations by making an announcement of its own:
“I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said.
If you condemn the decision made by Obama’s administration to not to file criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, please share this story!
