Edward Snowden espionage case

Statement: ACLU on joining campaign to ask President Obama to give Edward Snowden a pardon: 'The government has charged Snowden under the Espionage Act, a World War One-era law that doesn't distinguish between selling secrets to foreign governments and giving them to journalists working in the public interest. If Snowden were to be tried under the charges he faces, any argument that his actions benefited the public would be inadmissible in court. [...] It's indisputable that our democracy is better off thanks to Snowden, and it's precisely for cases like his that the pardon power exists. President Obama should use this power for good instead of leaving an American whistleblower stranded in exile'
