Clapper Refers to Journalists as Edward Snowden's 'Accomplices'

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper urged former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and his “accomplices” to return leaked documents during a hearing on Wednesday.

"Snowden claims that he’s won and that his mission is accomplished," Clapper said, according to a transcript from the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, posted by the Washington Post. "If that is so, I call on him and his accomplices to facilitate the return of the remaining stolen documents that have not yet been exposed, to prevent even more damage to U.S. security."

So who, exactly, are Snowden’s “accomplices?”

    Clapper is a funny guy. He refers to journalists as Snowdens' accomplices, and I refer to Clapper as a domestic enemy of the Constitution.
