THE NSA WAS sloppy about guarding its classified secrets from Edward Snowden, but no one at the agency is in danger of being prosecuted for that security lapse. What Hillary Clinton did with her private email server, however, is criminal, says Snowden.
If any other State Department or CIA employee were using a private email server to send details about the security of embassies, as Clinton is rumored to have done, as well as sensitive meetings with private US government officials and foreign officials over unclassified email systems, “they would not only lose their jobs and lose their clearance, they would very likely face prosecution for it,” the NSA whistleblower said in an interview with Al Jazeera English.
