Republican Justin Amash and 55 per cent of Americans agree that Edward Snowden is a whistleblower, and not a traitor.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Sunday called former NSA contractor Edward Snowden a whistleblower, not a traitor, and said that members of Congress would have been left in the dark about the NSA’s spy tactics if it weren’t for the information leaks.
Speaking on “Fox NewsSunday”, the Michigan Republican, who is a prominent critic of the National Security Agency, applauded Snowden for publicizing classified information that lawmakers would have otherwise never known about.
“Without his doing what he did, members of Congress would not have really known about [those programs],” Amash said. “Members of Congress were not really aware on the whole about what these programs were being used for and the extent to which they were being used. Members of the intelligence committee were told, but rank-and-file members really didn’t have the information.”
When asked by Fox’s Chris Wallace if Amash would go so far as to call Snowden a whistleblower, the lawmaker said he would, arguing that the former NSA contractor provided Congress with important information that should have already been known.
Amash thereby joined the 55 percent of Americans who consider Snowden a whistleblower, rather than the 34 percent who call him a traitor.
“Yes,” Amash said. “As I said, he may be doing things overseas that we’d find problematic, that we’d find dangerous… we’ll find those facts out over time. But as far as Congress is concerned, sure, he’s a whistleblower. He told us what we need to know.”

Again we must acknowledge “Putin-TV” to be more informative and honest than many media in the “free West”.
Most of the Obamite’s hail their leader, who want to make life difficult for Russia, after Putin gave Edward Snowden political asylum for one year.
Nations like Norway sided with the totalitarian forces, and rejected Snowden’s application without even studying it.
Since the majority of the American people refuse to brand Snowden as a traitor, we have to ask:
Who is the traitor?
Would it not be correct to say, that Barack Hussein has betrayed the US Constitution, and been involved in criminal espionage on the American public?
If so: Why do not the lawmakers on Capitol Hill starts to impeach the man who is occupying the White House?
Nixon had to go. So should Barack Hussein.
Will he be removed? Very unlikely. The man of lawlessness will be loved by all who take pleasure in lawlessness, and rebellion against God of the Bible.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
