    US President Trump Fires FBI Director Comey (55)

    Edward Snowden, former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor-turned-whistleblower, on Wednesday called on US citizens to speak out against the dismissal of Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) James Comey.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, the FBI director was removed from his post because, according to the administration of US President Donald Trump, he mishandled the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her term as Secretary of State.

    ​In 2013, Snowden leaked classified documents pertaining to the mass surveillance practices carried out by US authorities around the globe. The following year, Snowden received a three-year residence permit to live in Russia, which was later extended until 2020.
