Pelosi Calls For Snowden’s Prosecution


Nancy Pelosi 2 SC Pelosi calls for Snowdens prosecution

The NSA leaker broke the law and should be prosecuted, House Minority Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) charged Thursday.

In her first public remarks since Edward Snowden outed himself, Pelosi said the former defense contractor and CIA employee violated sections of the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and should be held accountable.

“On the strength of leaking that [information], yes, that would be a prosecutable offense, and I think that he should be prosecuted,” Pelosi said Thursday at a press conference in the Capitol.

With her comments, Pelosi joins a growing list of congressional leaders – including House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) – who have condemned Snowden for uncovering several National Security Agency surveillance programs, even as others are calling him a hero.

The secret operations were uncovered last week in a series of articles in The Guardian and The Washington Post. Under one program, the NSA is sweeping up information related to every phone call being place on the Verizon network – an effort supported by an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. A separate NSA program, dubbed PRISM, has been gathering internet data from foreign users.

  1. I think Nancy should be charged with the various crimes she has committed

  2. no one cares what that shriveled up piece of wortless flesh thinks. She should be glad she is not tried as a traItor. This women and I use the word lightly needs to just go away.

  3. Linda A. From NY says:

    So the Dingbat Pelosi is added again with her rants of an American Hero Snowden who has more guts then these congressmen who are allowing this insanity of Obama to continued. I wish this bitch witch Pelois along with Holder, Reid and the rest of this communist regime were arrested for the crimes and lies against the American people.

      Watch out Linda Obugme is reading your emails,me I'd tell him right to his big ears what I think of the muslim.
      Snowden is going to be Bushes fault sooner or later

  4. Naturally, she would. Her cage has been rattled. She could very well be implicated in some unlawful behavior that she would like to keep secret. I just hope this guy doesn't wind up dead before he can spill the beans. That's probably what "Poppin' pillz" Pelosi thinks prosecution means. That's why Snowden is in hiding.

  5. Edwardkoziol says:

    Naturally Blinky Poopalosi would want Snowden prosecuted because he threw a monkey wrench into Obugme operations on spying on the American people.Did the plastic princess care about Obugmes gestapo (IRS) screwing Tea Party Org. or republican business owners like Gibson guitars.It's to bad she couldn't become a good democrap like Lautenburg,Byrd and Killer Ted Kennedy these 3 can't hurt the country anymore.Poopalosi should be tried as a traitor along with Diane Fineshit.

  6. Pelosi ,Feinstein ,and a whole bunch like them need to be voted out of office .I'd rather see them all impeached and behind bars !

  7. anonym,ous says:

    Pelosi should be prosecuted
