And The Washington Post’s editorial board is calling for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden to face criminal charges. In an editorial published on Saturday, the Post called on Snowden to return to the United States to face charges under the Espionage Act, or to bargain for “a measure of criminal responsibility for his excesses.” A team of Washington Post reporters won a Pulitzer Prize in 2014 for covering NSA spying revealed in documents leaked to the Post by Edward Snowden. Two other news outlets to publish large numbers of the documents—The Guardian and The Intercept—have called on President Obama administration to pardon Snowden. The New York Times has called on the administration to grant Snowden clemency or a highly reduced sentence.
