If this guy just wanted to sell secrets to China he could have done that.
And we’d have never known.
How many others have done that?
This guy didn’t have to tell ANYONE what he’d done or what NSA was doing. Most spies don’t call the MSM to explain themselves. They just disappear with the data never to be seen again.
They have the means and motive, and lack the scruples.
And that is a massive abuse of Constitutional power - but they've already told us in so many words they see the Constitution as an anachronism and a nuisance.
Until I have good reason to believe otherwise I'm taking this guy at his word.
