    Thanks for posting Brian.

    Lets not forget that Snowden was a Ron Paul donor. He is one of our own and must be supported.

    Pelosi: 'I’m very worried' about whistleblower's safety

    “For 25 years, I’ve been in intelligence,” Pelosi said. “I was there to write the rules for whistleblowers and to protect them. Intelligence depends on whistleblowers being protected.

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), a longtime champion of whistleblower protections, defended the whistleblower ...

    “We should always work to respect whistleblowers’ requests for confidentiality. Any further media reports on the whistleblower’s identity don’t serve the public interest—even if the conflict sells more papers or attracts clicks,” said Grassley, the longest-serving GOP senator and the former Judiciary Committee chairman who has authored many whistleblower-protection laws.
    ...
    Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) said Monday it was vital to ensure the safety of whistleblowers, and that keeping the source’s anonymity was critical.

    “It operates in secret for a reason: to keep us safe, to protect sources and methods,” Quigley, a member of the Intelligence Committee, told CNN Monday.

    Ron says impeachment is a CIA coup, Snowden (CIA) says the CIA "whistleblower" is legitimate.

    Simple. Ron Paul asked if it could be a coup. He never said it definitely was. That was Swordshyll pulling words out of his ass and putting them in Ron Paul's mouth.

    How do I reconcile Swordshyll pulling words out of his own ass and sticking them in Ron Paul's mouth? I can't.

    As for Snowden, he doesn't know first hand either. He's been out of the loop for quite some time.

    They are cheapening the word "whistleblower" for a reason.
    they really, really, really despise Julian Assange.
