Snowden's Dad Unhappy with Congressmen Trying to 'Demonize' His Son

Proud of him for "sharing the truth" with the public


The father of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is castigating lawmakers who voted this week to spare a government surveillance program his son exposed.

On NBC's "Today" show Friday, Lon Snowden said there's been a concerted effort by some members of Congress to "demonize" his son. He says lawmakers should be more focused on whether the NSA's collection of the phone records of millions of Americans is constitutional.
