A Falling Out Between Wikileaks And Edward Snowden?

Daily Mail: ‘Opportunism won’t earn you a pardon’: Wikileaks hits back at Edward Snowden after whistleblower blasted the website for ‘leaking ordinary people’s emails’

* WikiLeaks released DNC emails over the weekend causing chair to resign
* But the data also included sensitive information of DNC donors and guests
* Snowden tweeted that their 'hostility to even modest curation is a mistake'
* The group hit back: 'Opportunism won't earn you a pardon from Clinton'

National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden and transparency website WikiLeaks are clashing over how best to handle the publication of sensitive data, in a public spat played out over Twitter.

WikiLeaks has come under increasing criticism over what it publishes, particularly following the release of what the website advertised as emails from Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party.

When a large numbers of emails turned out to be little more than messages from ordinary citizens, critics said WikiLeaks should have exercised better discretion to protect innocent people's privacy.

WNU Editor: Edward Snowden is not going to get a pardon from Hillary Clinton .... and maybe Wikileaks should edit their info more closely before releasing it to the public. But my guess is that they do not have the manpower to do so.

As ususal, Snowden is right.

Leaking peoples credit card and donor info is wrong.

In politics like war the only sin is loosing, to win every dirty trick is used, like the mainstream medias heavy scrutiny of Trump while giving Clinton a free ride{No they don't. yea right}. If Wikileaks wants to do maximum damage then releasing everything is the way to go . Assange hates Clinton and blames her for his confinement and will do every thing it takes to cause damage to Clinton and the DemocRATS, most enjoyable election I ever witnessed, and I have been following elections since 1968.

Actually the person best in position to issue a pardon is going to be President Trump. Not only will Hiliary not win but she's going to be facing extensive prison time hrrself within the next 3 to 5 years.
