Republican Lawmaker: Conservatives Concerned About NSA Snooping Are Acting Like Michael Moore
Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) said during an interview that National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden be prosecuted as well as the U.K. Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, an American citizen living overseas who broke the story.
“No right is absolute; even the press has restrictions,” said King, chairman of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.
King also accused Greenwald of threatening to release the names and locations of CIA assets worldwide, compromising national security.
“That to me is a direct attack against Americans, putting American lives at risk,” King said.
The Republican lawmaker also had a message for conservatives concerned about the NSA’s tactics: Stop acting like Michael Moore.
“Too many Republicans and conservatives have become Michael Moores, and I think it’s really dangerous to our country,” he opined.
