Former U.S. Attorney General said now that Edward Snowden performed a “public service”


Continuing examining Snowden’s case, Holder said however that “he harmed American interests, (…) relationships with other countries were harmed, our ability to keep the American people safe was compromised.” In consequence, because  he acted in a way that was “inappropriate and illegal” and “he harmed American interests” Snowden must be punished. The former Attorney General indicated even the way for Snowden if he wants to not remain a fugitive: “He needs to get lawyers, come on back and … see what he wants to do: Go to trial, try to cut a deal. I think there has to be a consequence for what he has done.” In fact Snowden expected a such answer when Holder was in the official position but he had nothing received.

Even if not clearly affirmed, now this could be an indirect offer from Eric Holder to represent Snowden if he will decide to confront justice.
