Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said on Sunday that he believes National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is a whistleblower, not a traitor.
“He may be doing things overseas that we would find problematic, that we would find dangerous,” Amash said on Fox News Sunday. “But as far as Congress is concerned, sure he is a whistleblower. He told us what we need to know.”
Amash explained that although members of the intelligence committees were informed of the details of the NSA’s surveillance, most lawmakers were in the dark about the programs.
