The Obama administration used the Espionage Act to go after whistle blowers

CNN's Tapper: Obama has used Espionage Act more than all previous administrations

The federal criminal charges filed against National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden make it seven times that the Obama administration has used the Espionage Act against government workers who shared information with the press. In at least two instances, the government’s investigations have delved into the practices of reporters and news organizations and put reporters in legal jeopardy.

Did Jake Tapper say Obama but reporters in " Legal Jeopardy "

This has raised red flags among defenders of the media. In a vigorous exchange on CNN’s The Lead, host Jake Tapper asserted to Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post that "the Obama administration has used the Espionage Act to go after whistleblowers who leaked to journalists ... more than all previous administrations combined."

Obama hasn't been president for four years you utter nutbag. Attacking Obama to detract attention away from the current president is the move of a lech and a coward.
