The Obama administration and its Democratic allies released an email from fugitive spy agency contractor Edward Snowden Thursday to refute his claim that he raised concerns internally about the National Security Agency's massive surveillance program.
"Snowden raised many complaints over many channels," Mr. Wizner said. "The NSA is releasing a single part of a single exchange after previously claiming that no evidence existed. The problem was not some unknown and isolated instance of misconduct. The problem was that an entire system of mass surveillance had been deployed — and deemed legal — without the knowledge or consent of the public."
He said all the government would have to prove is that Snowden took national defense information and gave it to someone who wasn't allowed to receive it.
