Source: from NBC News…. Russia Considers Returning Snowden to U.S. to ‘Curry Favor’ With Trump: Official U.S. intelligence has collected information that Russia is considering turning over Edward Snowden as a "gift" to President Donald Trump — who has called the NSA leaker a "spy" and a "traitor" who deserves to be executed. That's according to a senior U.S. official who has analyzed a series of highly sensitive intelligence reports detailing Russian deliberations and who says a Snowden handover is one of various ploys to "curry favor" with Trump. I'd actually look forward to a traitor's trial and subsequent execution of this guy…. and during Trump's first term in office. It would be historic, to say the least, rivaling the trial and execution of the Rosenbergs. Will require many tons of popcorn. Would break the Nielsen's ratings.
