Rand Paul: Edward Snowden "Told The Truth in the Name of Privacy," James Clapper Lied "In Defiance of the Law"

One's been branded a traitor the other one's on government payroll


Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky defended NSA leaker Edward Snowden this morning on CNN:

"They're going to contrast the behavior of James Clapper, our national intelligence director, with Edward Snowden," said Paul. "Mr. Clapper lied in Congress in defiance of the law in the name of security. Mr. Snowden told the truth in the name of privacy."
