Johnson City congressman doesn't think NSA leaker is a traitor

U.S. Rep. Phil Roe

Confessed intelligence leaker Edward Snowden is not a traitor, U.S. Rep. Phil Roe told reporters in a Thursday conference call.

“I’ve told other people that. I don’t think he’s a traitor,” Roe, R-Tenn., said of Snowden, the former government contractor who allegedly disclosed National Security Agency (NSA) information and is reportedly hiding out in Hong Kong.

Roe also took on NSA’s decision to secretly collect millions of telephone records as well as emails and other Internet data.
