Edward Snowden gives his verdict on Clinton and Putin

Edward Snowden and Daniel Ellsberg appeared on the first episode of Al Jazeera series UpFront on 4 Sepember 2015.

In the fifteen-minute interview, Edward Snowden gave his response to the recent ruling from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals and said that Hilary Clinton’s assertions about the security of her email were “ludicrous”, and an example of the double standards that apply to the treatment of classified information.

Snowden also made clear his disapproval of Russia’s human rights record, a message he reiterated a day later when accepting Norway’s prestigious Bjørnson Prize.
