Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards, a whistleblower whose actions have benefited the American public, has unjustly been sentenced to six months in prison. 

While she worked at the Treasury Department, she identified what she believed were threats to national security and corruption, sought to have them resolved through the appropriate channels, and when nothing was done, she delivered to an investigative reporter thousands of secret documents revealing, among other things, suspicious bank transactions. These documents unveiled evidence of money laundering and other financial misconduct in global banking, as bankers identified questionable transactions, but often processed them anyway. Many of these transactions, reporters found, funded drug cartels, terrorists, organized crime, et cetera––money laundering of the darkest kind. 

Her disclosure of these documents was a public service, not a crime to be punished. It had several beneficial consequences, among them: a joint investigative project called the FinCEN Files, which prompted further inquiries by the UK, EU, and US, and helped to pass legislation against anonymous shell companies (i.e., the great tool in money-laundering).

President Biden, who vowed to make global systems of finance more transparent, can take his first step towards fulfilling that vow by stopping his Justice Department from punishing the actual source who delivered such transparency.

This petition calls on President Biden to pardon Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards.
