U.S. President trump said on Monday that he would pardon a “very important” person on Tuesday, but not Edward Snowden or Michael Flynn, a former national security adviser appointed by trump, according to Reuters. “A very, very important person will be pardoned tomorrow,” trump told reporters on air force one But he declined to provide further details, saying only that the man was not Snowden or Flynn, a former NSA contractor now living in Russia, where Snowden was accused of leaking secrets. However, in an interview with the New York Times on Saturday, trump said he was considering a pardon for Snowden, who now lives in Russia. When talking about Snowden, trump said that many people think that the U.S. law enforcement agencies have not treated Snowden fairly. “I’m going to start studying it,” trump said at a press conference at the Bedminster golf club in New Jersey For many years, the U.S. authorities have wanted Snowden to return to the United States and face criminal trial on charges of espionage, theft and unauthorized disclosure of defense and intelligence information. In 2013, Snowden leaked a large number of secret documents to the media, and revealed that the U.S. government widely monitored domestic and foreign telephone calls and monitored Internet communication content, causing a great stir in the international community. Then Snowden fled the United States and was finally sheltered by Russia. At the time, trump tweeted his hostility to Snowden, saying he was “a spy who should be executed.”. Anatole kucherena, Snowden’s Russian lawyer, said the United States should not grant a direct amnesty, but should abandon all possible prosecutions against Snowden because Snowden did not commit a crime. He said Snowden’s actions are not only in the interests of American citizens, but also in the interests of all mankind.
