The main branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia, will host a conversation between former National Security Administration contractor Edward Snowden and The Intercept cofounder and investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill on Monday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

After being charged with espionage and granted asylum in Russia, Snowden currently lives in an undisclosed location. Snowden will appear via closed-circuit video link, but Scahill will be in the flesh.

The two will discuss the state of the surveillance state and what it means for whistleblowers in Trump’s America and beyond.

Tickets go on sale online Tuesday, Aug. 22 at 10 a.m. Auditorium tickets cost $35. The library expects the event to sell out. Additionally, you can watch a live broadcast of the event in a separate room at the Parkway Central branch for $15.

    Everyone in attendance for this should be aware: Snowden is a traitor and a Kremlin stooge.

      Can I have your nudes?

        Troll me all you want. But it is no coincidence, no coincidence at all, that Snowden ended up in Moscow. The FSB had that in mind before they even recruited Snowden to hack the NSA files he eventually shared with Beijing and the Kremlin.

          No. I literally just want your nudes.

            Seriously though, Snowden was just an IT grunt. He wasn’t in a position to access the NSA files he stole for the Kremlin. Snowden’s martyr myth is a total hoax. Everyone on the top level of Moscow’s intelligence service is laughing themselves sick at that.

            Again, I don’t care about any of that. I just want your nudes.
