Clinton calls for imprisonment of Snowden while campaign follows his security advice
by Mikael Thalen, Infowars:
The Clinton campaign is using a “Snowden-approved” encrypted messaging app in order to privately discuss Donald Trump.
According to a recent report from Vanity Fair, a person close to the DNC and Clinton campaign states that following the DNC hack staffers were told to use “Signal” when mentioning the Republican nominee.
“In the intervening weeks, staffers were told, according to a person who works with the committee, that if anyone was going to communicate about Donald Trump over e-mail or text message, especially if those missives were even remotely contentious or disparaging, it was imperative that they do so using an application called Signal,” Vanity Fair’s Nick Bolton writes.
Signal, an app for Android and iPhone, is considered by leading security experts, including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, to be the gold standard for end-to-end encrypted communications.
“Signal, staffers in the meeting were told, was ‘Snowden-approved,’” Bolton continues. “A week after the meeting at the campaign headquarters, according to two people who have worked with the D.N.C. and the Clinton campaign, an e-mail was sent out instructing staffers where to download the app and how to use it.”
Revelation of the campaign’s decision, and more specifically the mention of Snowden, has drawn criticism given Clinton’s past comments on the whistleblower.
During an October 2015 Democratic debate, Clinton argued that Snowden should be “facing the music” for revealing NSA secrets.
