So, he just said he didn't give up any documents but the article says he "leaked material"? He leaked information that we were being spied on in a way that would have been illegal a few years ago before we gave up our freedom because we are terrorized. Funny how our government is believed about him but they lied in every way possible on this topic previously. I believe him, not them.

I have no reason not to believe him. He's got a better record of honesty through this than the administration does.

Snowden admitted that he "...handed over all the documents he had obtained to journalists during his stay in Hong Kong." So, he still stole information from the government and gave it to someone else. How is that NOT leaking documents?!

Snowden didn't say he didn't leak the documents. He said they weren't accessed by the Chinese or Russian governments.

Right, I'm sure the Russian FSS is paying for his expenses and housing in Russia for nothing.
