    •  Fascinating article, although I don't think it (5+ / 0-)

      answers my specific question.  Probably Poitras and Greenwald have purposely kept this ambiguous.  This article does say that at the time of early contacts, before Poitras, Greenwald, and Snowden met in Hong Kong, Greenwald had received only about 20 documents and Poitras had many more.  But it doesn't specify who got what after that.

      •  Well, it may not be specific enough for you... (2+ / 0-)

        ...but, you agree, it clearly demonstrates, in great detail, how closely the two (Greenwald and Poitras) have been working together on this project.

        And, without looking back at (re-referencing) the article, I could've sworn there was information regarding (an approximation as to) when Greenwald received the "full data dump." (It might not be a precise date, but it should provide you with enough information to deduce an approximate time period.)
