Edward Jay Epstein says he hasn’t written a “whodunit” but rather a “howdunit,” in How America Lost Its Secrets: Edward Snowden, the Man and the Theft.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Epstein discusses whether Snowden is a whistle-blowing idealist or a traitor to his country. He also describes the one question he would love to pose to the man who now lives somewhere in Russia, and suggests that there’s a lesson in all of this for President Trump.

    Great interview! The comment that drove home the point for me was that Snowden took maybe 1 or 2 docs related to being a whistleblower and 1.5 million other docs that gave secrets to our adversaries. If that doesn’t make it clear he’s a spy, then I don’t know what will.
