Rep. Mike Rogers Wants Snowden Charged with Murder

Just retire already


The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee wants to charge Edward Snowden with murder.

The former government contractor who leaked details about secret programs of the National Security Agency (NSA) and its British counterpart is a "traitor," Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) told members of Parliament in the British House of Commons on Tuesday, according to reports.

"We are treating him, as I would argue, [like] the traitor that he is," Rogers added. "And by the way — and this is important — I would charge him for murder."
