Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard suggested Thursday that President Donald Trump consider pardons for Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.
“.@realDonaldTrump Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the former presidential candidate tweeted.
Gabbard included a video she had posted several weeks earlier, calling for support for her own proposed legislation that would protect whistleblowers and drop the charges for both Snowden and Assange.
