Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Are in Lockstep on Government Spying | Anthony Gregory   1 comment

The surveillance state has once again disappeared from the public debate, just the way it likes it.

 

Whatever else it might be, November’s election won’t be a referendum on surveillance and privAnthony Gregoryacy. Hillary Rodham Clinton voted as Senator for the Patriot Act in 2001 and 2006, and Donald Trump has approved its renewal, saying he tends to “err on the side of security.”

Trump has called Snowden a traitor worthy of execution.In the Democratic debates, Clinton harshly criticized NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, insisting, probably wrongly, that he “could have gotten all of the protections of being a whistleblower” and “raised all the issues” without breaking the law. Trump has called Snowden a traitor, promised to get Russian president Vladimir Putin to hand him over, and, in the past, even suggested him worthy of execution.
