The former CIA and National Security Agency (NSA) contractor was referring to his 2013 decision to leak unsecured NSA surveillance of American citizens. The US government responded by accusing him of stealing government property and passing confidential information to unauthorized persons, among other things. Washington also revoked Snowden’s passport, stranding him in Russia, where he eventually received political asylum.
“Dude, I should have thought about that one,” quipped Snowden, commenting on White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s assertion that the Biden document was accidentally misplaced.
The first batch of documents were found on November 2, but the information was not disclosed to the public until this week.
Snowden’s first reaction was to point to the delay, calling it an actual scandal, because the US Department of Justice found out about it a week before the midterm elections and voted to shut down the news, giving the partisan advantage.

He also retweeted a follower who argued that no US politician really cares about classified documents, and fake anger is only used to punish political enemies.
Back in August, Biden and Democrats expressed outrage over former President Donald Trump allegedly keeping some classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, after FBI agents were dispatched to raid the resort.
Unlike Biden, as president Trump has the authority to declassify documents. The US Department of Justice has now appointed a special counsel to handle the investigation into Biden’s handling of classified papers. However, some Republican politicians have expressed suspicions that the move was meant to hinder their investigation of Biden.
