Tom McClintock Right on Snowden Immunity. America Needs to Heal and a Trial Would Be To Unhealthy for Our Nation. Too Many "skeleton" are Outed from the Closet and It's Hurting America. Time to Start FRESH With NEW Ethics Guidelines. Reign in the CIA Too. Even People That Work at the CIA Want the Agency to HAVE to Follow the Rules. Too Many Mind Games.
Viewpoints: McClintock bucks GOP, has it right on leaker

As generalizations of political parties and ideologies go, Tom McClintock's support of amnesty for NSA leaker Edward Snowden, as he recently told Channel 3 (KCRA), defies expectation. Conservatives generally think Snowden a traitor while many liberals see him as a patriot.
Who likes "traitriot"?
But McClintock's call for Snowden to return stateside under immunity from prosecution is sound.
