WikiLeaks, the online organization that publicized the hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, is taking criticism from an unexpected source - NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

Snowden tweeted his displeasure with WikiLeaks after the site posted thousands of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee, – aparrently leaked by Russian agents as an attempt to influence the U.S. presidential election, as reported by The Hill.

WikiLeaks shot back at Snowden after his tweet, accusing him of looking for a way home from his current self-imposed exile in Russia, where Snowden is avoiding federal prosecution for his leak of information from the U.S. National Security Agency.

“Opportunism won't earn you a pardon from Clinton & curation is not censorship of ruling party cash flows,” it replied.
