Holy Crap what a juicy scandal.

Harold Martin walked off with thousands of pages of secret documents over a two-decade career in national security, most recently with the NSA, whose headquarters is about 15 miles from his home in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He pleaded guilty to a single count of willful retention of national defense information and faces a nine-year prison sentence under a plea deal. These NSA files include their most powerful hacking codes, which are being peddled on the internet.

Yet, authorities have never publicly linked Martin or anyone else to the Shadow Brokers and the U.S. has not announced whether it suspects government insiders, Russian intelligence or someone else entirely.

Apparently some government employees just cannot be trusted.

Corruption flows from the top down.

The President of the U.S. can't be trusted.

The longer he stays in power the harder it will be to clean up his messes.

The effects will be felt for decades to come.

Probably the ones who are willing to break the law to hide their tax returns.
