If there is any way to thoroughly get back at the left over the next month, President Trump should make it a priority to pardon those individuals whose clemency would get the attention of the deep state.

For the deep state has worked against this president and his administration unlike any other previously.

At this point in time, two candidates for pardons are fairly obvious — Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.

Assange, as the founder of Wikileaks, helped reveal the purported corruption amongst the DNC during the 2016 presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Many may not realize, however, that Assange is currently being held in a maximum-security prison in the United Kingdom because of espionage charges brought against him for publishing top-secret U.S. military documents 10 years ago.

Assange is one of the most polarizing and divisive figures globally, but no one may hate the corruption of the deep state more than he does.

Additionally, perhaps President Trump may may wish to seriously weigh the possiblity of a presidential pardon for National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Snowden has been a topic of conversation ever since members of Congress such as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Reps. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Justin Amash, L-Mich.,  and Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii,  all requested the president to allow Snowden to return to his country.

President Trump himself has even expressed a strong interest; to "look at" pardoning Snowden.

No president has been more adamant in expressing his distaste of the purportedly corrupt intelligence community as Trump has been during his tenure.

If there ever was an opportunity for Snowden to be granted access back to the U.S. (without consequences) that chance will come within the next month.

For his part, Snowden has made appearances, inclusive of those on social media —  advocating for his return to the states.

While appearing on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Snowden shared his views about what it means to be patriotic, loving his country, and advocating for the same principles and policies that freedom-loving patriots in the United States advocate for, in terms  of both transparency and privacy protections.

If you carefully listen Snowden's to words on that specific podcast, you will not come away thinking he is someone with an inherent disdain for America, as some would like you to believe. 

Any liberty loving patriot (of the sort most neocons  and neoliberals can't stand) usually possesses a deep love for country; one that is unmatched.

Snowden aptly fits that description.

The best way for President Donald J. Trump to pay back those individuals who tried to ruin his presidency is to go out in a blaze of glory. Mr. Trump should pardon both Assange and Snowden, making and taking the broadest shot he can — aimed at the deep state.

Joe Biden would never even think about giving Snowden or Assange a chance at returning to our country.

They are patriots, and should be regarded as such and treated accordingly.
