The Drudge Report has taken a break from White House bashing. The headline is a juicy one filled with internal intrigue. Page views should be way up. Many are becoming weary of the press obsession with the Trumpettes.
The subject is if Edward Snowden will be handed over by the Russian government back to the U.S. The rationale of this From Russia, With Love initiative would be to deepen the diplomatic ties between the Putin and Trump Administrations. Here is the media coverage Drudge links to.
If returned to the U.S. at this time, Snowden faces an unsympathetic political climate. During his campaign, the president, Donald Trump, positioned and packaged Snowden as a traitor. In addition, national security, including cybercrime by foreign governments, has become a scary grassroots issue.
Snowden's ACLU lawyer, Ben Wizner, denies the rumor of a handover. So does Snowden himself. But it makes a lot of public relations sense. Both Vladimir Putin and Trump can come off looking like heroes. Meanwhile Snowden could face federal charges. The penalty could be 30 years in prison.
The hit current movie "Jack Wick Chapter Two" brings home the message about how both exciting and perilous it is to play outside the legal sandbox. At this point, no matter how self-righteous Snowden felt about his decision to out NSA confidential data, he might be wondering: Why did I ever get into this pickle?
