He points out that you can be sentenced to 5 years in prison per document. Of course, you will remember California Democratic Senator Diane Finestein wanted to have Snowden charged with TREASON for revealing classified information on the internet about how the government was ILLEGALLY surveilling all Americans conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA). Being charged with Treason can be a death sentence.
This goes to my point. Something smells here. They did NOT have to reveal anything. Why not keep it all hidden like the CIA's involvement in the JFK assassination for over 60 years? Snowden tweeted. "The scandal is that the DOJ found out about it a week prior to the midterm elections and chose to suppress the story, conferring a partisan advantage."
However, that does not explain why NOW! There are no honest people in such positions in Washington. Those jobs are ONLY available to "team" players.
This Game is at foot. Classifying documents is corruption in itself. It is not always national security. Many times they are covering up political facts simply to hide illegal activity as in Snowden's Case. In my case, all the taped phone calls that would have taken down many of the Investment Banks in New York when they are talking about joining them and they paid bribes to some official, did not become "classified" they merely claimed they were all destroyed in the World Trade Center attack. One way or another, incriminating evidence vanishes. So why have the Democrats suddenly expose their own?
