“I think the government hopes to chill speech by employees in the national security and intelligence fields, especially those at the NSA and CIA, but the unintended consequence is [that] more and more whistleblowers are coming through the doors of the Government Accountability Project (GAP),” said Jesselyn Radack, referring to the organization where she works as the National Security and Human Rights Director. “I think courage is contagious, and we see more and more people from the NSA coming through our door after Snowden made these revelations.”
Radack, an attorney who has met with and been in communication with Snowden, said “a handful” of people in the intelligence community have come forward since this summer when several major international newspapers began writing about the NSA’s classified foreign and domestic surveillance programs – stories based on thousands of secret NSA documents allegedly stolen by Snowden, a former NSA contractor.

2) Corruption trial of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
In a previous corruption case - that of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, the courts found that the receipt of envelopes full of cash by his personal secretary from parties of interest, was only negligence to register the "donations".  The cash was transferred to the safe of Olmert's personal attorney Uri Messer.  The trial is still going on in this case, while both Olmert and his secretary Shulah Zaquen are not jailed, enabling them to coordinate testimonies, which shift periodically.
