President Trump earlier this week floated the notion of pardoning NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, leading some to believe that it could lead to the pardoning of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
“There are a lot of people that think that he is not being treated fairly. I mean, I hear that,” Trump told the New York Post on Thursday.
“Snowden is one of the people they talk about. They talk about numerous people, but he is certainly one of the people that they do talk about,” the president stated. “I’ve heard it both ways. From traitor to he’s being, you know, persecuted. I’ve heard it both ways.”
