- Trump could be charged with crimes he said Edward Snowden should be executed for, a legal analyst said.
- The DOJ is investigating if Trump broke federal laws, including the Espionage Act, by taking government records.
- Trump said there should be a “death penalty” for Wikileaks and that Snowden “should be executed.”
According to a former Fox News analyst, former President Donald Trump could be charged with the same crimes that he suggested a National Security Agency whistleblower should be executed for.
“In a monumental irony,” former New Jersey Superior Court judge Andrew Napolitano wrote in an op-ed in the New Jersey Herald, both Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and the NSA’s Edward Snowden “stand charged with the very same crimes that are likely to be brought against Trump.”
