At Himes Roundtable, Snowden Hero and Traitor

By James Lomuscio

Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency (NSA) contractor who a year ago leaked the agency’s sweeping surveillance to the media and fled the country, got both sweeping support and condemnation at a domestic surveillance roundtable held in the Westport Library’s McManus Room today.

Before an audience of 80, Westporter Sal Liccione asked U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, former FBI agent Mike German and David McGuire, staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut, if they would favor criminal prosecution of Snowden if he were to return from Russia.

Himes, who serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, was quick to label Snowden as a traitor.

“The idea that he is a hero is just plain wrong,” said Himes, a Democrat seeking reelection to Connecticut’s 4th District.
