President Obama did not, however, pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden or Native American activist Leonard Peltier on Tuesday. Peltier is a former member of the American Indian Movement who was convicted of killing two FBI agents during a shootout on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1975. He has long maintained his innocence. Many are calling on Obama to pardon Peltier, and activists have been maintaining a daily vigil outside the White House since late November demanding his freedom. We’ll have more on the case of Leonard Peltier later in the broadcast.
