    Hmmm. One guy leaks classified files to trash an opponent of the government (under direct/indirect orders by Nixon). Another leaks them to deal with illegal activities at the highest level of the government (including his boss, that guys’s boss, and *that* guy’s boss).

    Nah, no difference whatsoever (snark).
