9/4/20 Trevor Timm on the Vindication of Edward Snowden

by | Sep 6, 2020 | Interviews

Trevor Timm discusses an important new ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which says that the NSA’s mass data-gathering program, famously exposed by Edward Snowden, was illegal all along. It also came out during the court proceedings that not a single act of terrorism was ever prevented by the program. This ruling is a major vindication of Snowden’s decision, and may bring him one step closer to exoneration.

Discussed on the show:

  • “James Clapper denies lying to Congress about NSA surveillance program” (AP News)
  • “State Department Cables” (WikiLeaks)
  • “Afghan War Logs” (WikiLeaks)
