    It was an NSA intercept that brought down Gen. Michael Flynn.

    Trump once said Snowden should be executed. Will his opinion change after the Flynn resignation?

    Now that Trump has made wiretap allegations there is good reason to look closely at the NSA.

    The NSA, just like the IRS, FBI, CIA, etc, has become a political tool.

    Their original intent may have been good, but the abuses created by their given power become more evident every day.

    As for changing his mind about Snowden, I doubt it. Trump is not accustomed to changing his mind, or at least, not publically doing so.

    Well, especially if he doesn't get anything out of doing so.

    He's publicly flip-flopped on many issues, before the campaign, anyways.

    He has said in the past that he was pro-choice. Now he's all about choosing justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade, just because what he gets out of that is a slavering devotion of his right-wing base. As usual, whether he changes his mind on anything depends on what he gets out of it. He'll probably wait on any pronouncement on Snowden until he has another unfavorable news story to cover up with his particular brand of BS, just like this fake indignation over Obama "tapping" his phones covering up his collusion with the Russians.

    He's flipped on issues after the election too.

    Now there are good illegals who can stay and bad illegals that need to go.

    And Hillary will walk.

    Why are people always surprised every time a politician lies to them?

    It's as if they are not sure that the sun will rise in the morning.
