MOSCOW —”Break classification rules for the public’s benefit, and you could be exiled. Do it for personal benefit, and you could be President,” Snowden wrote on his official Twitter account on Wednesday.
Former US Secretary of State and Democratic party front-runner Clinton has been using a private email server for work-related matters, including for those classified. An investigation into the matter revealed that Clinton shared more than 100 emails about highly classified US government programs and other sensitive information via her unsecured communications in breach of the established rules. The findings have prompted the FBI to open its own investigation into the matter.
Snowden, who is currently residing in Russia, is wanted in the United States on charges of espionage and theft of government property. His revelations could cost him as much as 30 years in prison.
