Eric Holder, Obama and Snowden

Obama disagrees with Holder on Snowden

By Susan Crabtree | Washington Examiner

President Obama does not agree with the view of his former Attorney General Eric Holder that Edward Snowden performed a “public service” by leaking classified documents about the United States’ sweeping surveillance programs.

Holder, in an interview with CNN’s David Axelrod over the weekend, said Snowden’s illegal act had some silver linings for people by shining a light on U.S. surveillance techniques. But he also said the former contractor for the National Security Agency must pay a penalty for the crimes.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest was unequivocal in his response to a question on whether Obama agreed with Holder’s perception that Snowden’s actions had some redeeming qualities for the public.

“A careful review of [Obama’s] public comments will indicate that he does not” share Holder’s view, Earnest said


Odd that Obama would be forced to publicly disagree with Holder. So Axelrod interviews Holder, and that is real credible journalism? I wonder if this is the beginning of the talk which is to end in a Snowden pardon? Since when should a former AG come out to defend a criminal? But then these guys are radicals, it’s what they do.

    Holder had defended other criminals like the black panthers who stood outside a polling place yelling “I’m going to kill you crackers and your babies”. Holder defends criminals when it suits his purpose.

    What is shocking to me is Barry’s stance on Snowden. But then again, I suppose Snowden caused a few problems for the fraud in the WH.

    These guys are all effed up.

      So right, Holder has defended the indefensible before. I think Barry’s disagreement is more for show than anything. It does remind me how Holder got off without incident himself, with all he did. Now we have to listen to this guy soil our media?

        Holder soiled everything around him for his fraud boss. You’re right, Obama just said that for show.

        Holder got away with so much. It shows you how much these people can get away with and Hillary will get away with her crimes too. Sickening!
