Here in Germany we have a debate between the government and the oppositions. The latter want to have Snowden in Germany to ask him about the NSA
spying, the government does not want him here. Right now Angela Merkel is on her way to meet Barack Obama and it seems they want to sweep the dirt
under the carpet to stand strong against Putin's actions in the Ukraine.
Now an "expertise" has leaked, which was not presented to the politicians and the public yet. Some lawyers from the USA explain to our politicians
that it could be a crime according to US law, if they try to get knowledge of American secrets and even if they talk to Snowden. Political immunity
could be denied in such a case, as they write.
It looks to me, as if they were inspired by Putin's clownesque actions and try a similar way even try to threaten our politicians. Maybe Angie must be
afraid, that she could get arrested in the USA.
Here is a google-translaton of the article in Der Spiegel. Usually they publish such things in English too. But I could not find an English version
Seems Angie has one more thing to talk about with the POTUS...
