Former Rep. Ron Paul calls for Snowden clemency

Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) has started a petition demanding clemency for the former National Security Agency contractor who revealed its metadata surveillance program.

Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them,” Paul says in a video on his Ron Paul Channel website, which he started last summer.

The petition asks supporters to sign the petition to bring Snowden back to the United States before his status of temporary asylum in Russia expires in late July.
