Did he thinks that he's gonna find it country with a better human rights record in in Moscow.
Or in Havana or in Caracas I think he's in for a rude awakening if he's looking for a place with a better human rights -- in the United States.
He's certainly not gonna -- it in any of those countries do you think about what he says he wants -- and what his actions are.
It defies logic.
After hiding out in Hong Kong for several weeks -- -- is on the move earlier today an Aeroflot flight from Hong Kong believed to be carrying the former NSA contractor landed in Moscow.
Now the guessing game is under way where he will eventually resurface in the -- for good according to a Wiki -- statement that was just released minutes ago.
So does bound for Ecuador back country's foreign minister appears to back up that and it -- saying that the country has received an asylum requests from snowed.
This is a spokesman from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence tells Fox News more leaks are anticipated.
I'm -- in Washington where we began with former house foreign affairs committee chair congresswoman.
Ileana Ross -- and thank you so much for joining us today.
Out what do you make -- this connection impossible.
You know alternate location for -- in.
Well it is not surprising because although rough -- Korea the president.
Looks -- -- western in his clothing and in his way of -- of communicating he's just as authoritarian.
As many -- spots in in the region.
He is a -- -- light and it Chavez wannabe.
He now Travis is dead they got my do rose a stooge -- -- in in Venezuela but we talk about freedom of the press.
It is not respected in Ecuador neither is it in in Venezuela or Cuba so it's just that the epitome of irony.
That this gentleman Snowdon has castigated the our own government because.
All -- -- withholding.
Information to the American people and he seeks refuge in in that and countries that.
Honor any commitment to up freedom of the press whatsoever.
Nobody can understand what that what his motivation is of it's truly two.
To let the people know everything about the government he is picking the worst places.
Up to seek refuge first China Russia.
-- now perhaps Cuba Venezuela Ecuador.
They don't respect freedom of the press they -- and they do more espionage then and then you can ever imagine.
The time that he spent in China and briefly in Russia if indeed that is the path that reportedly that he's been following today.
A do you have concerns about what he may have shared with officials in China and Russia when it comes to.
In secret information that he may have been and how the and SA operates how the US operates in tracking potential threats.
Absolutely we should all be very concerned that that this man may be sharing information.
Two countries that are openly hostile to the United States that have.
Very open very and not not secretive and in terms of their advertisement -- them.
Programs of surveillance against the United States.
Now Snowden was against the US government surveillance on on people.
Yet that yet what he's doing is perhaps providing information to the very enemies of the United States of America because.
China will use that information against the solo Russia so well Ecuador so -- Venezuela and so -- Cuba so.
If this is a guy who dresses himself off as as a as the white Knight in shining armor.
It that night is -- rusty and it's looking really bad because that information will be used against us.
And he will it be compromising US national security so shame on him for what he's doing.
He has come forward to say that he didn't do this in an effort to harm the United States that -- -- wanted to there was information he could have released that would have gone to that end.
But he wasn't trying to benefit from this and that he wasn't trying to harm the US is it possible this started.
With good intentions to alert Americans into what he saw.
As a conflict regarding their privacy.
And it's turned into something else some blown up -- -- space or do you think all along their worse some nefarious motives here.
What we do have whistle blower protections there -- certainly actions that he could've taken.
To go about -- bulging information in it in a way that did not seem to be sole suspect.
I don't know his motivations but I know where -- his travels and I know that if -- if you're in China.
And then you go to Russia and -- they -- about that -- do you think -- about Venezuela and -- end up in Ecuador it's not because you love the United States so much in the U wanna protect.
These are countries that are that are in no stretch of the imagination.
A friendly to the US and -- they are letting him -- Why and how because there's something in it for them that China's not doing it as a humanitarian gesture.
-- -- neither is Ecuador any of the other countries they do it because they're gonna get something out from him.
And at what will he do with that information -- share it to these costs -- government that does do harm to the United States so.
People I don't I I don't know his his motivations that -- the -- question.
I know that we should judge him by his actions and these countries are openly house fell to the United States.
And -- calls into questions what he what he wants to get out of this it's it's a real irony that he's looking at countries.
-- press freedoms are not celebrated or at and a person like him.
Would not survive five days in China or Russia or Venezuela or Cuba or Ecuador incredible.
All right congresswoman.
We always appreciate your time -- -- like.
