...Threatened Arrest Against Founder Of Snowden's Encrypted Email Service

•, Paul Szoldra
 Instead of assisting the U.S. government in its quest for more information on Edward Snowden and his use of secure email, the founder of encrypted email service Lavabit shut down his site.

Just for that action, he's reportedly been threatened with criminal charges, according to Michael Isikoff at NBC News.

"I could be arrested for this action," Levison told NBC.

The action he refers to is one he made on Aug. 9: completely pulling the plug on his company to avoid becoming "complicit in crimes against the American people."
