Sen. Feinstein: Snowden's Leaks Are 'Treason'

Thoughtful responses not in her repertoire


Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Monday said the 29-year-old man who leaked information about two national security programs is guilty of treason.

Feinstein said former National Security Agency Edward Snowden she doesn't see him as a hero or a whistle blower.

"I don't look at this as being a whistleblower. I think it's an act of treason," the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee told reporters.
