US President Donald Trump has said that he will “take a look” at pardoning the whistleblower Edward Snowden. He was asked during a press conference at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club about pardoning the former US contractor. In his reply, the US President said that he will consider this subject seriously.

Edward Snowden, the former US contractor revealed in the year 2013 about the actions of the US government to spy on its citizens. Snowden fled to Russia after he made the revelations and he is staying in exile in Russia. Now, he has expressed his willingness to return to the United States with a condition to receive a fair trial.

The US president has expressed that he was not in touch with the updates on the current situation of Snowden. Further, he has expressed that he is planning to look deeply into this matter. He said that people are expressing different opinions on this subject.

He has mentioned that some people are asking the US government to give bad treatment to the former US contractor. While the other group of people is treating him differently. In addition to this, he mentioned that he will look into this matter in a strong manner.

What Donald Trump is saying right now is completely different from his statement during the 2016 presidential campaign. In the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump called Snowden a traitor and promised people to deal with him in a harsh manner.

Snowden leaked the information to show that the National Security Agency (NSA) was playing with the privacy of US citizens. After his statement, the US government accused him of endangering national security and put espionage charges against him. And he even failed to get pardoned by the former US president, Barack Obama.

Idaho is a beautiful place to call home. However, no matter where you live in the United States, it is important to learn about accident laws, and liabilities. These can eat a fortune through insurance payments, medical bills, and other liabilities. Idaho laws operate on a comparative fault negligence basis, meaning the ability to recover liabilities of the party is based on their comparative fault in a collision. For example, if you have suffered damages worth $100,000, and the jury determines that you were at 60% fault, you will only be able to recover damages worth $40,000. Also be sure to hire local help in dealing with the legal process including a Boise Idaho auto accident lawyer. Local help brings in many hidden advantages. 

Rear-End Collision 

If you are new to Idaho, remember that if you are hit from a rear end, it is virtually never your fault. The law in set in place to make sure motorists does not speed, always watch out for their surroundings, and ensure accidents do not happen. This law works to your advantage, even if you are hit from rear end during an auto-accident. These are also some of the easiest legal investigations to prove. If your car has been damaged from the rear end, and the other party’s from the front-end, there is very little need for further investigation. However, even in such cases, if you have driven recklessly before, like driving without the tail lights, or without breaks, can result in significant damages to you. So, be sure to keep the car in optimum conditions during a collision.  

Turning Left

When you plan on turning left on roads, it is your responsibility to stop, and look for cars coming in from other directions. If a motor comes in straight, and hits you when you are trying to turn left, it is almost always your fault. The exception to this rule is rare, and hard to prove. The exception like in rear end collisions depends on the recklessness of the other party including being above the set speed limit, running a red light, or unexpected slow movement. 

If you would detailed information, you can download ‘Rules of the Road’ a simplified version of the ‘Vehicle Code’. You can also find the same in a law library nearby. The document is usually available online on the website of your state department of motor vehicle.
