In an exclusive interview in Russia, I spoke with Edward Snowden, the fugitive former NSA contractor who leaked information about U.S. surveillance activities, talks about Putin, life in Russia with his longtime girlfriend and the possibility of returning to the U.S. to face justice in a Trump administration.
“It wasn’t so many years ago that people were saying, ‘This guy’s a Russian spy,’” said Snowden when asked by Couric how “nervous” he was about the possibility of losing his Russian sanctuary and being sent home to face criminal charges of theft of government property and violations of the Espionage

I don't think hearsay of any kind should be allowed presidence in our judicial system.
Documented evidence or eye witness reports should be required to advance on behalf of the attorney general.
Proper cause for extradition should be based on proof, not hearsay. If the US government uses homeland security funding to pay for transport, manhours, and fees on behalf of the prosecution, proper measures of case evaluation should be considered.

Educators around the country see the value in young adults taking the time to figure out what they want to get out of college before they show up on campus. It's called the 'gap year' and it isn't just a year off. http://yhoo.it/2dmpA1q
When the White House announced that Malia Obama would be taking a year off after high school before attending Harvard, it turned a spotlight on the idea of a “gap year.” And yet it’s not just presidential family members taking time off, and not just Harvard that’s encouraging its students to consider
