Infamous whistleblower Edward Snowden took to Twitter on Monday to weigh in on the hacking and leaking of 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails, the Washington Examiner
The former NSA contractor, currently living in Russia to avoid extradition to the U.S. over intelligence secrets he leaked years ago, said the U.S. government can and should show proof that Russia is responsible for the DNC leaks.
Basically, now that U.S. Intelligence surveillance secrets aren't secret anymore, Snowden says the government should reveal who's behind the leak, if and when it knows for sure.
President Barack Obama has resisted calls from his national security teams to do so, the Examiner reports.
The email dump on Friday has embarrassed Democrats after exposing leadership's dealings with Bernie Sanders and led to the swift resignation announcement of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
U.S. cybersecurity firms have found the same Russian intelligence hackers they discovered lodged in sensitive government agency servers before are responsible for the DNC hack.
