This to the judge.
Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Pollack -- was here judge always talked to him to be with you -- here and I know you were argument on this is that we should.
We should be grateful.
-- noted more for telling us of the most massive.
Government orchestrated violation of the Fourth Amendment and our history.
We should be grateful this this have precipitated a debate on the floor of the House of Representatives most members of the House of Representatives didn't know about this it was a short debate but it was -- debate.
Over whether or not.
In a free society the people want to expect or will permit the government to spy on everyone and now another government spies -- everyone last week foxnews.com reported.
That the Obama administration through the NS AS the Internet service for virus for our passwords.
And that didn't even make the front pages because now we're so accustomed to this -- -- other -- mr.
snow whose behavior is not always easy to defend it is.
Absurd it to suggest that there is more freedom in Russia.
Then there is here what has saved him is the the adversary relationship we have with Russia.
And the fact that we don't have an extradition -- so there's no way to compel his return rather than to kidnap him off the streets.
You know I think there are a lot of folks -- around this country though with all due respect to would say you know what read my boring emails.
Listen to my.
Telephone call us if if you can prevent another 9/11 I -- -- yes a lot of people do believe that unfortunately the constitution is their adversary.
Because the constitution requires the government to go and get permission before reading -- emails and and and phone numbers a lot of well intended people are willing to sacrifice.
Liberty and return for what they believe is safety unfortunately once you give that up it doesn't come back at the NSA can do this now.
When we are not engaged in any war on these are people out there the wanna kill us or not shooting at them they're not shooting at us was left Afghanistan and we left -- -- -- Afghanistan.
And have left Iraq.
If the NSA can do this in relative a peacetime they will continue to do -- even after the threat goes away and then the Fourth Amendment would just be piece of paper I don't mean anything let's just say -- comes back he faces charges he's convicted let's just say for the sake of argument I'm wondering.
Could this ever get to the supreme poll -- salute you would get to the Supreme Court that's a great question Rick because he will make the following argument.
I took two votes one to keep secret what the government shared with me.
Another to preserve protect and defend the constitution I couldn't do both so we -- -- -- follow he'll say I followed the higher -- that's the classic defense of a whistle blower I did.
I followed the law by obeying the oath to preserve the constitution by -- revealing.
Violations -- question.
Will a jury except that.
Will -- judge except that.
Will the Supreme Court except that I think this case eventually gets the Supreme Court one way or another look I don't wanna suggest -- the government knows they can do it they can literally.
Kidnap him off the streets and bring him here and that will not interfere with his prosecution here -- -- exacerbate our relationship with Russia significantly.
But it would not aspect of their ability to prosecute him here they could intercept -- -- if he flies to Ecuador as long as the plane lands somewhere where they wanna send them here.
They'll prevail judge thank you I have always appreciated your inside and I have -- my appreciated that time when fuel goes back to when you went a Fox News correspondent London before Johnny came here before my hair was gray at all.
